Earlier today, Samsung introduced two new mid-range devices to the Philippine market – and from the looks of it, Samsung has changed its strategy, as the Galaxy A30 and A50 both sport an impressive specsheet and are priced very competitively.
Both boast vivid 6.4-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED displays with FHD+ resolution. The A30 packs an Exynos 7904, while the A50 has an Exynos 9610. Both are octa-core processors. The former comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, while the latter has 8GB and 128GB.
The Galaxy A30 has a dual rear camera setup which includes an ultra-wide angle lens. The Galaxy A50 on the other hand, has three rear shooters, one for low-light, one for 123° ultra wide shots, and one for depth sensing. Its 25MP front camera can also deliver subtly blurred backgrounds, thanks to its Selfie Focus feature.
