Samsung Galaxy A50 Launched in Nepal for Rs 33,490
Samsung Nepal today launched not one but two of the best A-Series of smartphones built for markets like Nepal in the indian sub-continent.
The company launched two of the smartphones – A30 alongside the A50. The A50 is the premium version of the two, while the A30 falls a little bit short in terms of specs and some other features.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 looks a lot like the Galaxy M10 and M20, but it has a few premium features such as a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and three rear cameras.
The back of this phone has a unique iridescent finish that reflects light dramatically in rainbow patterns.
Samsung has used its premium Exynos 9610 SoC which is a solid performer for this price segment and supports camera features such as intelligent scene optimisation and 480fps slow-motion video recording.
Performance is generally quite good, especially in terms of the display and battery life.
The cameras are versatile but there are situations, such as in low light, when the results could have been better.
The Galaxy A50 offers a lot of features that people really look for, and is a good all-rounder that might help Samsung fight off its competitors.
The phone comes with a 6.40-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×2340 pixels.The device is powered by Octa-core (2.3 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A73 + 1.7 GHz, Quad core, Cortex A53) Exynos 9610 processor which actually belongs to a 7-Series processor just like on the A30.
The Galaxy A50’s Exynos 9610 is built on a 10nm FinFET Process while the Galaxy A30’s Exynos 7904 is built on a 14nm FinFET Process. Both processor belongs to the Samsung 7000 Series of processors.
The Galaxy A50’s Exynos 9610 processor is often misunderstood to be a 9000 Series processor like the ones on the Galaxy S10 series, which it is not.
Hence, performance wise the Galaxy A50 is only slightly better than the A30.
The device comes with 4GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal storage which can be expanded upto 512 GB via a dedicated micro sd-card slot.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 runs Android Pie and is powered by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery. The Samsung Galaxy A50 supports proprietary fast charging.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the Samsung Galaxy A50 on the rear packs a 25-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture; a second 5-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture and a third 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.2 aperture. The rear camera setup has autofocus. It sports a 25-megapixel camera on the front for selfies, with an f/2.0 aperture.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 runs One UI based on Android Pie and packs 64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 512GB) with a dedicated slot. The Samsung Galaxy A50 is a dual-SIM (GSM and GSM) smartphone that accepts Nano-SIM and Nano-SIM cards.
