Samsung Galaxy A30s and A50s with upgraded triple-camera setup introduced

After introducing the Galaxy A10s, Samsung is giving its Galaxy A30 and A50 a mid-life refresh with its new A30s and A50s. Both still retain a 6.4″ display and a large 4,000mAh battery, but there are a couple of tweaks in terms of cameras and exterior design.

The Galaxy A50s looks similar to the current Galaxy A50 but it now features a new back design with a geometric pattern and holographic effect. Upfront it has a 6.4″ Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display that comes with an on-screen fingerprint sensor. Under the hood, it appears to be running on the same Exynos 9610 Octa-Core processor like the A50 which can be configured with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage.

In the camera department, the A50s comes with a newer triple-camera setup that has a 48MP f/2.0 main camera, 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5MP depth camera. Meanwhile, the front selfie camera is upgraded from 25MP to 32MP.
