The Galaxy A series has become even more diversified this year. Samsung has already introduced the Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A40, A50, A70, and A80 smartphones with the focus being on new AMOLED screens and premium camera skills. And our guest of honor - the Galaxy A50 - has plenty to show of both.

The Galaxy A series has always been comprised of premium midrangers. But Samsung's strategy for it has come through several transformations. From all-metal phones and water-resistant designs, through a couple of odd experiments, and lately - pioneering trendy features like notched AMOLEDs and ultra-wide-angle snappers.

Samsung Galaxy A50 review

The Galaxy A50 is a well-rounded smartphone packing as many cool specs as possible. Start with the slim design with the gradient paint job, move to 6.4" the Infinity-U Super AMOLED screen with a premium fingerprint scanner underneath, then there is a powerful Exynos chip, and a triple camera on the back. The large battery and the latest Android Pie with the clean One UI are hard to miss, too.

The Galaxy A50 is obviously positioned between the lower-tier of As with HD AMOLEDs and less-impressive snappers, and the higher-tier A70 and A80 with larger screens, more powerful chips, and even more premium snappers. And that's exactly what makes it so special - having the best from both worlds - cool specs on a lower price.

One notable omission of the 2019 Galaxy A phones is the lack of water-protection. Samsung has changed its mind yet again, and this mid-range lineup won't feature any ingress protection. Giving something and then taking it away isn't the best move for sure, but we, and probably Samsung too, hope to the A50 will have enough of niceties to make up for that.

Samsung Galaxy A50 review

Unfortunately, our review unit arrived without a retail box and we can't show you any pictures of that. But the A50 should be bundled with a proper cable and a fast charger for sure. Headphones or no headphones, the phone does have a 3.5mm audio port so that you can use your favorite pair either way.
