Europe and US still have pretty lousy mobile networks, and the prices of data is still mostly ridiculous.

Generally Samsung doesn't use more than 2 types of SoC for midrange. So, There is 980 . Why would they use mediatek ? They will use mediatek in lower end phone. And they will release it only when 5G is stablished in developing counties like India. That might take 3 to 5 years.
Samsung might use 1 low end SoC by mediatek near future fo EU market but I don't see a 5G low end mediatek chipset yet. So not sure if that happens this year.
AnonD-754814, 12 Dec 2019Yeah ! Wait for 3 more years or may be 5. I don't know if you're being sarcastic or oblivious but there was a report saying Samsung will be using Mediatek 5G SoCs next year for their mid range phones. Next gen Mediatek is promising. However, I don't know when exactly will it release but it certainly isn't 3 to 5 years.
Nariman, 12 Dec 2019MediaTek was never a good option. it was always underpowered and slow.I think for them the Amd version exynos will be a good option.
SNA1970, 12 Dec 2019Not really , because Samsung makes the Super Amoled and it costs them half price.
Other Chi... moreDon't act like a pro when you are not. Samsung can't make 50% profit by selling Display. I am pretty sure it's not over 20% .
I don't know the current price but couple years ago a FHD OLED used to cost more than 100$ for retail price.
Every year experts do a estimated cost for flagships. Samsung always sit among top for making less percent profit for cost. Which means Samsung gives the best value per $.
Do some research then talk again.
Tiny bezel > water drop notch > punch hole
Basically, the more they're trying to force the selfie camera in the screen, the stupider it looks. Just make the bezel as slim as possible and put the selfie camera in it, it's not that hard, e.g. Meizu 16s got it right.
DrakeX, 12 Dec 2019Better wait for the Mediatek Samsung ones. It's going to be good. Yeah ! Wait for 3 more years or may be 5.
Samsung is on drugs if they think they can sell the A51 at almost $400. This is probably going to hit a wall again, like those A-series from 2018 did.
SNA1970, 12 Dec 2019Not really , because Samsung makes the Super Amoled and it costs them half price. Other Chi... moreRight. Its mostly the ads or other costs that are caused by the Samsung being a really big comoany
TFM, 12 Dec 2019This move don't purchase any device A72 Soon 2021 then A72s then A73 then a73s etc.....Not really, he is saying wait for the "s" model allways.

Other Chinese companies when they buy Amoled from Samsung , Samsung profit 50% from it by selling it.
But Super Amoled is made by samsung and hence they dont need to buy it from anyone and it costs them half the price they sell it to others that is base manufacutring cost only.
hence the Super Amoled is not a FACTOR in pricing them higher for them
DrakeX, 12 Dec 2019Better wait for the Mediatek Samsung ones. It's going to be good. MediaTek was never a good option. it was always underpowered and slow.
Anonymous, 12 Dec 2019Overpriced as usual with poor specs. Then they'll release the A51s and A71s as updated models ... moreYeah, exactly. And even then consider buying them if they start offering 5g connectivity. As it stands, these phones are flops for what they bring to the table.
Somehow the punchhole on the cheaper A51 looks smaller, atleast from these images.
