The Samsung Galaxy A50 has actually been frequenting the rumor mill for a few months now. Starting from a benchmark leak all the way back in December 2018, followed by more specs leaks, a Wi-Fi certification, some body part shots and finally culminating in a recent full-specs leak. The latter showcased the first wave of Samsung's new and upcoming Galaxy A mid-ranger series, following the double digit convention, already established by devices like the Galaxy M10 and M20.
Clearly, there isn't much mystery left regarding the Galaxy A50. Still, as the "top-dog" of the mid-ranger pack, as we know it so far, it is still quite interesting to take a closer look at its design and layout. Enter a pair of official-looking back and front renders of the phone.
If nothing else, it is pretty nice to get a definite confirmation of previous hardware leaks. Especially for details like the under-display fingerprint reader - a feature that only the A50 is said to sport, within the A-series family. Although, that being said, rumours have hinted at a Galaxy A70 and even A90 on the Samsung roadmap. There is also the mid-tier Galaxy A20 to likely look forward to.
For the time being, however, this is what the Galaxy A50 will most probably look like. One thing, or rather its absence, that might be worth noting is the apparent lack of a dedicated Bixby button. At least we can't spot one. As for some of the specs, missing from the pictures - these include a 1080 x 2340 pixel resolution on that extra-tall, 19.5:9, Super AMOLED panel, complete with what Samsung has dubbed an "Infinity-U" notch. The 25MP selfie camera nuzzled in it is said to be an f/2.0 fixed-focus unit. Breaking down that triple camera setup on the back, we have a 25MP, f/1.7 autofocus main snapper, an 8MP, f/2.4 fixed-focus ultra-wide and a 5MP, f/2.2 fixed-focus depth sensor.
Chip-wise, the Galaxy A50 will have Exynos 9610 with an octa-core CPU, going as fast as 2.3 GHz. Memory options are 4/64 GB and 6/128 GB, and there is a microSD slot for up to 512GB extra storage. The phone will have a 3D Glossy Plastic back in three colors - Black, White, Blue. And that final Z-axis dimension, missing from the sketch is 7.7mm.
Last, but not least, a hefty 4,000 mAh battery will be keeping the lights on. Unfortunately, Samsung appears to be sticking to its tried and true 15W Adaptive Fast charging standard, via a Type-C port. At least for the Galaxy A50 and its A30 sibling.
I feel that something is wrong,samsung clzims that bokeh can be done without the depth sensor by the exynos 9610,so 3rd cam wont be depth as it will be useless.
The specs don't mention Gorilla Glass?
Damn, on the early photos it looked fairly compact, but it turned out to be just about useless phablet.
