Samsung had announced a major update for their midrange A50 and A30 series last month with the A50s and A30s; meant to come eith a visual redesign and a better camera. If that news had you excited, you would be pleased to know that the A30s has already received their SIRIM certification while the A50s has just received theirs. Along with their midrange smartphones, it looks like their upgraded entry level smartphone, the A20s, has also received their SIRIM certification so it looks like Samsung has plenty of goodies in store for us Malaysians.
The Galaxy A20s is expected to only supports 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth while the Galaxy A50s, which is the successor to the current Galaxy A50, will actually come with NFC support along with the usual 802.11ac WiFi. This means that the smartphone will support Samsung Pay as the technology allows you to use your smartphone to replace your existing Visa Paywave and Mastercard Paypass cards. NFC support was not included in the Malaysian variants of Galaxy A30 and A50 and it seems that Samsung Malaysia could be leveraging on Samsung Pay as a key differentiator in their latest mid-range offering.
The A50s will be available with either 4 or 6 GB RAM, as well as the option of either 64 or 128 GB of internal storage. The A30s will be available in 3 and 4GB of RAM, and a selection of either 32, 64 or 128 GB storage options. Both the A50s and A30s will be available in 4 colours: Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green and Prism Crush Violet. Still no word on the actual price tag yet.
