The world’s biggest smartphone manufacturer Samsung seems to be in a mood to amaze its audience once again. The company began 2019 with a launch of Samsung Galaxy M20 and M10 – both devices have done exceptionally well. Not so long back, Samsung unpacked its super powerful Galaxy Fold and S10-Series and now Samsung turned the heat up in a mid-range and budget segment with Samsung Galaxy A50 in Australia alongside Galaxy M20 and A30.
The Galaxy A50 is leading the charge and offering some state-of-the-art features without even leaving a dent on your wallet. To see what it dishes out for its audience, we have compiled everything about Samsung Galaxy A50 here on this single page. So, let’s keep going!

- 4GB of RAM with 64GB and 6GB of RAM with 128GB

- 25MP Front Camera
- On-screen Fingerprint Scanner, Gyro, Proximity, and Compass

The smartphone feels premium while holding in a hand thanks to its light build and curved back. The front of the handset is covered by the edge-to-edge display with a u-shaped notch and a little chin at the bottom. The rear has a sleek glass finish – but it’s made of polycarbonate. The right-hand side of the phone is covered by power and volume rockers whereas all ports and loudspeaker can be found on the bottom edge. The SIM try, however, goes in a split on the left-hand side.
The display with a size of 6.4-inches – based on Super AMOLED Technology is quite awesome, without a doubt. It has all the usual suspected colours, high brightness, deep blackness, and broad viewing angles. The u-shaped notch is not much of an interruption, and whether you watch a video or play a match, you’ll ignore it in no moment. In fact, the size of the chin underneath the display is more important as compared to the rest of the bezels of the phone. It enables to reduce the discomfort of the on-screen navigation buttons, but Samsung definitely has some space to make this chin smaller near in the future.
In-Display Fingerprint Sensor
Perhaps you will observe the absence of a fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone. This is because Samsung Galaxy A50 uses an optical fingerprint scanner in the display. It operates quite well, but definitely not so quickly as compared to a normal fingerprint scanner. Based on reports from online sources, the in-display scanner requires a few seconds to recognize your fingers and enable your biometrics. To be honest, you will find the face unlock much faster – but it is certainly not as secure.
Triple Rear Cameras
A triple rear camera configuration of Galaxy A50 involves a 25MP primary lens, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and 5MP depth sensor. It is a configuration similar to Galaxy A7 (2018), only a primary camera is a 25MP instead of 24MP but the overall quality of the captured image is the same. In bright light, the main camera captures awesome images but struggles a little in low-light scenes. The details also get grubby in low-light circumstances and the phone can over-expose shooting in case of too much artificial light.
The 25MP front-facing camera, on the other hand, takes Live Focus images. And as for normal selfies, it captures plenty of detail in daylight images but lacks some colours and details in low-light conditions.
The 4,000mAh battery of Galaxy A50 is great for a day long even with a full day of heavy use. However, you can easily use it till the next afternoon with light to moderate use before you have to charge your phone. Always-On Display feature reduces the complete time for use by a few hours, but it still takes you all day. This is the phone with two SIMs but a single SIM user can get more juice.
The smartphone is backed by quick charge support and comes loaded with fast charger bundled. If you charge it from 0%, the quick recharge speeds will be quite slow, but the complete time of 0 to 100% is about two hours which is equal to the course. Most important of all, Samsung Galaxy A50 is equipped with Samsung’s standard power saving modes.
What is Inside?
Digging down inside the beast, it’s running on Android Pie 9.0 and according to the reports, it’s quite impressive, quick, smooth and silky. Though it’s yet to be tested completely but it doesn’t show a sign of lag whether you play demanding games or work on multiple apps simultaneously.
The device has got multi-core score of 5396 during the benchmark test – putting it against the like of Galaxy S7 of 2016. Although it’s a little weak compared to the other Galaxy S-Series and A-Series handsets. It comes in two different sizes to choose from – one that has 4GB of RAM with 64GB of ROM and a slightly higher 8GB of RAM with 128GB of onboard storage. Interestingly, one can take the storage to the next level (up to 1TB) via a microSD card.

It’s also available now in Australia for only AU$499 but if you are looking to get it at unmatched rates along with an instant discount, Paylessdeal has got you covered.
