The FCC has certified the Samsung Galaxy A50 and in doing that it revealed some key details. On the wireless side (FCCs key competence) theres Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0 LE, ANT+ and LTE.
The Galaxy A50 has a 6.22 screen (with a waterdrop notch, the phone itself measures 158.5 x 74.5mm. The battery is sealed. The phone will come bundled with Samsungs standard Adaptive Fast Charger, a USB cable and a wired headset (EHS61ASFWE).
The Galaxy A series has been home to premium mid-rangers so far, but thats about to change the Samsung Galaxy A20 has been spotted running Android Go. You can see its Geekbench score below.
The phone is powered by an Exynos 7870 (with a go tag) and just 1GB of RAM. This leaves little room for doubt that this is an Android 8.1 Go Edition phone. This is the SM-A260F model, but theres another that can be called Galaxy A20, the SM-A205FN.
This one has been through Geekbench too, showing an Exynos 7885 with 3GB of RAM and running the full Android 9 Pie. This model gets a higher benchmark score too, not surprising since two of its eight cores are Cortex-A73.
It will be interesting to see what kind of naming scheme Samsung will come up with to keep the A205FN and A260F separate as they are clearly very different in terms of capabilities. They cant both be named Galaxy A20.
