Who is this smartphone for? 

Galaxy A50s 2Samsung made sure that consumers with various interests will be delighted to own and use the A50s. It has AI-based Game Booster for mobile gamers, advanced multi-camera for photo and video enthusiasts or even professionals, power-optimized chipset and a whopping 4000mAh battery.

AI-based Game Booster

Galaxy A50s 1Samsung Galaxy A50s is built for mobile gamers. With AI-based Game Booster, it provides a powerful gaming experience. It is assisted with Frame Booster, which adds virtual images in-between frames to compensate for the dropped images caused by AP performance for better view experience. While all these sound too complicated, what this technology brings to consumers is smooth gameplay experience. With this, at least on paper, should smoothen frames and allow gamers to play their favorite games at high frame rate settings.

Include 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage, then you get yourself a smartphone that’s more than capable enough for consumers to use as daily driver.

Its advanced multi-camera is better than ever.

Rear Camera 48MP (f2) + 5MP (Live Focus) + 8MP (Ultra Wide) 25MP (f1.7) + 5MP (Live Focus) + 8MP (f2.2)
Front Camera 32MP (f2.0) 25MP (f2.0)


If you compare this directly with the now-repriced Galaxy A50 (PhP15,990), its camera set is already a compelling reason to pick this one up. Its ultra wide camera has 123-degree field of vision, which technically resembles the human eye. If your hands are shaky when taking videos, its wide angle camera (in full HD)  can take all the beating thanks to its Super Steady Feature.

Its main camera’s resolution has been beefed up to 48MP at f/2.0. This should allow consumers to take bright and stunning photos, even at night. Additionally, this lens is complemented with a 5MP depth sensor,  which helps achieve over-the-top portrait shots with impressive depth of field.

If you’re into taking selfies, you can now take better photos with its 32MP lens. Similar to its flagship counterparts, the selfie camera now has Selfie Focus and Smart Beauty features.

Power-optimized Chipset and 4000mAh

The all new Exynos 9611, which also powers its upcoming wave of Galaxy M smartphones, is what ticks inside the A50s. We cannot find much about how this differs from Exynos 9610 apart from its new power saving features. Mix this with 4000mAh battery life, and you get a smartphone that can last for day in a single charge.

How much is this?

Galaxy A50s is priced at PhP18,990, available in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, and Prism Crush Green variants. Pre-order this from September 13 to 27, and get a free Galaxy Fit E2.
