Continuing with its focus on India and its mid-range segment, Samsung today announced yet another phone targeted at the budget segment – the Galaxy A20. Priced competitively at Rs. 12,490, the phone comes packed with all that one would expect from a phone in this price range, or perhaps some more as well.
To begin with, the front is dominated by a 6.4-inch Infinity-V AMOLED display, one that has a resolution of 1560 x 720 pixels and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. That translates to the panel stretching all the way to the top with just a water-drop notch housing the front-facing cam. Also, it’s an edge-to-edge display all along save for a chin at the bottom that isn’t too pronounced either.
On the other side of the display is an octa-core Exynos 7884 chipset which creates processing magic together with 3 gigs of RAM. The phone comes with native storage of 32 GB which is expandable to a really impressive 512 GB. It’s not known though if there is going to be another version with larger storage available anytime soon.
Then there also is a massive 4,000 mAh battery which should sail through an entire day of usage and more comfortably. The company also announced the phone will have support for fast charging capability using 15 W charger via USB Type C port, which means recharging times are going to be really quick.
For imaging, the phone comes with a dual camera setup at the rear comprising of a 13 mp F1.9 lens and a 5 mp F2.2 lens. Samsung said this will enable the phone to click brilliant images in a wider lighting condition, including even in those scenarios with relative darkness. Similarly, an 8 mp F2.0 lens is equipped at the front for selfie shots.
The rear also houses the fingerprint sensor for biometric security. As for the choice of colors, the new Galaxy A20 is going to be available in shades of red, blue and black. Samsung said the phone is going to be available starting April 10 itself. The Samsung e-Store, Samsung Opera House are going to be the official sales partner along with other online and offline stores across India.
