Samsung launches three new A-series phones; 5G for under £430

Samsung has launched three new handsets in its more affordable Galaxy A-series line, including two new 5G models. The cheapest 5G model will retail at £429.

The full line-up comprises the A41, A51 5G and A71 5G – with the two 5G models coming with powerful 4,500mAh batteries and varying levels of fast-charging support.

On the camera side, the A71 5G comes with a 64-megapixel primary camera, and the A51 5G coming with a 48-megapixel snapper. Both handsets also have a 12-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 5-megapixel depth camera and 5-megapixel macro camera.

The A41 has a 48-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 5-megapixel depth camera.

There is plenty of storage space on tap, with memory expandability on every model too.

The A51 5G and A71 5G have a premium glossy finish, and Samsung’s Infinity-O (punch hole) display. The A41 goes with a tear-drop notch instead. All screens, ranging from 6.1-inch up to 6.7-inch feature a 1080 x 2400 pixel Full HD+ resolution.

“Our ambition with the Galaxy A Series portfolio is to offer must-have innovation at a varied range of prices. The Galaxy A41 delivers this, offering fantastic value without compromising on features

“The Galaxy A51 5G and A71 5G build on this commitment, demonstrating our ongoing promise to provide next-generation connectivity to more people, by bringing 5G into our diverse smartphone portfolio at more accessible price points.”

Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice-President Samsung Electronics UK & Ireland
