Samsung reportedly working on Galaxy A50 and Galaxy M20 smartphones

Samsung reportedly working on Galaxy A50 and Galaxy M20 smartphones

In terms of the camera, the A50 is expected to sport and a 24 MP camera as seen on Samsung Galaxy A7.

Earlier reports also mention that the Galaxy A50 will ship with Android 9 Pie pre-installed, although Samsung's proprietary skin, known as One UI, will likely run on top of Google's operating system.

Samsung is also working on a new smartphone series - Galaxy M Series. That's not all, this unique device is also expected to feature the reverse wireless charging option, that lets you charge other devices, something we first saw with Huawei's Mate 20 Pro in 2018.

Samsung, however, will not be the only brand to launch unique phones this year. This will make the Galaxy A50 the cheapest phone from Samsung to come with wireless charging support. Previous rumours that the A50 would pack a 5000mAh battery have now been denied; it seems it will pack a 4000mAh one instead. This is particularly true for mid-range smartphones from Samsung, and Galaxy A50 happens to be one of them. It is also not clear if a notch or a display hole will host the front-facing camera of the smartphone. The report reveals some of the key specs about the Galaxy A50 phone. That said, the fingerprint sensor will be of the optical variety and not ultrasonic like in the S10.

The leak suggests that Galaxy A50 will be powered by an octa-core Exynos 9610 processor, paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage. The downside is that the phones might not support 3D face authentication like the iPhone X and a limited number of high-end Android handsets. For 2019, Samsung will be trimming the bezels further and the latest flagship models will come with a new Infinity-O display that comes with a punch-hole camera design.
