Samsung is currently gearing up to launch its all-new Galaxy M series smartphones, which are expected to be a lot more impressive than the company’s previous budget-centric offerings. In addition to an impressive Galaxy M series lineup targeted at the budget segment, Samsung is also working on the next-generation Galaxy A-series lineup. The Galaxy A50, which is expected to be among the first Galaxy A-series smartphones to be launched this year, has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance.
Samsung Galaxy A50 Granted Wi-Fi Certification
The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the SM-A505FN/DS variant of the upcoming Galaxy A50. While the certificate does not reveal any key feature of the upcoming smartphone, it does confirm that it will support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and run on the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box at launch.
Samsung Galaxy A50 is expected to be powered by an octa-core Exynos 9610 processor under the hood, coupled with 4GB of RAM. The 10nm Exynos 9610 chipset features four ARM Cortex-A73 cores clocked at up to 2.3 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at up to 1.6 GHz. For handling graphics, the chipset packs a Mali-G72 MP3 GPU. Apart from the Galaxy A50, we expect the Exynos 9610 to power quite a few other upcoming mid-range Galaxy smartphones. According to a recent report out of Korea, the Galaxy A50 may come equipped with an in-display fingerprint sensor as well. The Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A90 smartphones are also expected to come with the feature. In the camera department, however, the upcoming Galaxy A-series smartphones will reportedly feature a dual-lens camera setup at the rear. In terms of design, the smartphones will likely utilize an Infinity-O display, similar to the Galaxy A8s, which was launched in China last month. The new Galaxy A-series smartphones are expected to be launched sometime in the second quarter of the year.
