Samsung just announced its Galaxy A series (specifically, the Galaxy A50, A20, and A10e) will come to the United States for the first time yesterday, though at the time, Verizon was considered the lucky carrier of the Galaxy A50.
With Father's Day right around the corner, and with smartphones becoming the ideal mobile device, Sprint is wasting no time making the case for consumers to buy the budget-friendly mid-ranger.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 has a lot to like about it: the 6.4-inch, Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ screen resolution, a 25MP selfie camera, three rear cameras with one being the new Ultra Wide Angle Lens found on the Galaxy S10 series, the optical in-display fingerprint scanner, 64GB of internal storage with a 512GB-capable microSD card slot for expandable storage, and a 4,000mAh battery with fast-charging.
The "Infinity-U" display mentioned above refers to the "waterdrop notch" design for the camera cutout. The waterdrop notch design looks like a "U," and Samsung has capitalized on this design by marketing the design in an unmistakable name: "Infinity-U." This isn't the "Infinity-O" design of the Galaxy S10 series (which has an "O"-shaped camera cutout, called a "punch hole" camera), but it'll do.
The Galaxy A50 allows buyers to have the new Infinity display (with a unique camera cutout), the optical, in-display fingerprint sensor, a wide display (6.4 inches), and the Ultra-Wide Angle Lens without the price tag of the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S10+. When you can get features found on $900+ flagships for the price of just $349.99 (the MSRP of the Galaxy A50), you've got a deal too good to pass up.
Samsung's new take on the Galaxy A series with the Galaxy A50 is designed to bring cutting-edge, innovative features to its mid-range lineup for consumers who want a phone competitive on both features and price.
Parents whose children are graduating high school, college, or even grad school may look to pick up a great gift to reward them for their hard work. Sprint is also offering the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL for those who want something a bit more "vanilla," so the US carrier offers a great selection of affordable smartphones for a budget price.
And yet, those who pick up the Galaxy A50 will get not only the latest from Google (Android 9.0 Pie), but also Samsung's own One UI that brings features not currently found in Google's Android (such as Dark Mode, which Google will unveil later this Fall in Android Q).
The battery life is another win for dads and grads, as the Galaxy A50 is said to perform all day without needing a charge, making it perfect for post-graduation photos. Sprint is offering the Galaxy A50 on its Sprint Flex Lease plan, so you must agree to an eighteen-month lease, a new line of service, and credit approval to take advantage of this offer. The offer stands with a $4.59 monthly credit that is applied after two billing cycles.
Samsung intends to bring the more affordable Galaxy A20 ($249.99) and Galaxy A10e ($179.99) to retailers, but these two smartphones will arrive within a few weeks. The Galaxy A50 is the star of the show for now, and it just may be enough to reward the one you love this coming Friday, June 14.
