Samsung has announced a new smartphone in its Galaxy A series – the Galaxy A31 that comes with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED screen, a 48MP primary camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. The Galaxy A31 comes with an in-display fingerprint reader instead of a rear-mounted one.
The smartphone offers a 1080p+ resolution and the screen has a U-shaped notch on its top edge that also houses a 20MP selfie camera. Samsung says that the 20:9 aspect ratio makes the A31 almost 2mm narrower than the M31.
The smartphone has a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 48MP main sensor (f/2.0 aperture, 0.8µm pixels), an 8MP ultrawide-angle cam (123-degree field of view), a 5MP dedicated macro shooter, and a 5MP depth sensor.
While Samsung didn't officially reveal the processor used in the device, the product page mentions an octa-core (Dual 2.0GHz + Hexa 1.7GHz) processor. The Galaxy A31 will be available in two variants, 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. The storage can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy A31’s 5,000mAh battery also supports 15W fast charging through a USB-C port.
The Galaxy A31 will come in Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush Blue, Prism Crush Red and Prism Crush White colours. The price and availability will be announced soon. We believe that the A31 would be priced close to the Galaxy M31, which is available for Rs 15,999 for the 6GB/64GB memory variant and Rs 16,999 for the 6GB/128GB variant.
The Galaxy M31 (Review) comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel, Exynos 9611 processor, and is powered by a 6,000mAh battery. Instead of a 48MP primary sensor at the back, the M31 sports a 64MP primary camera. Other three sensors are the same in both the devices.
