Looks like Samsung isn’t stopping with its series of product launches this early 2019, as we’ve received notice that the company is also set to introduce the Galaxy A30 and A50 to the Philippine market very soon. Both devices are made to conquer the mid-range scene with a decent specsheet and competitive pricing (hopefully).

Both devices sport a 6.4″ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display at FHD+ resolution. The Galaxy A30 is powered by an Exynos 7904 while the Galaxy A50 runs on an Exynos 9610, both octa-core processors. The A30 has 4GB of RAM, whilt the A50 can have up to 6GB of RAM. Both come with 64GB of storage, expandable with a microSD card.

For imaging, the A50 has three rear shooters – a 25MP low-light camera, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP depth camera. The A30 on the other hand, sticks to two. Both run on Samsung’s One UI on top of Android 9 Pie, and pack 4,000mAh batteries. Both are also capable of 15W fast-charging via a USB-Type C interface.

The Samsung Galaxy A30 comes in three colors: Black, White, and Blue, while the Galaxy A50 comes in an extra color – Coral. Local pricing is still to be confirmed, but a local retailer has already posted images of the devices with their alleged SRPs. The A30 is allegedly priced at PhP13,990, while the A50 will retail for PhP17,990.

If these prices are indeed correct, then Samsung has outed very capable contenders for both the budget (M20) and now, the mid-range segments, completing its lineup with the S10 devices in the flagship category.
