Samsung surely looks ready to go against the likes of Xiaomi and Huawei with its back to back mid-range launches, just like last year. We have seen some handful of second-generation devices hitting the market in 2020, and the Samsung Galaxy A31 joins this list.
Like a few recent devices, Samsung enlisted the A31 quietly on its website, and this seems a pretty decent mid-range device. Internally, the device rocks an unknown processor — most probably Helio P65 according to FoneArena — 4GB or 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of onboard storage which is expandable.
At the front, the Galaxy A31 sees a 6.4-inch OLED screen with FHD+ resolution and a waterdrop notch which holds a 20MP selfie camera. The device also packs an impressive 5,000mAh battery, though not as impressive as the Galaxy M31‘s 6,000mAh, still it should provide you a decent screen-on time on paper. However, charging the device’s voluminous battery will take some time due to the 15W charging it comes with.
Quad-camera, these days, is an ongoing trend and the Galaxy A31 fully capitalizes on it with 48MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide shooter, 5MP macro lens, and 5MP depth sensor.
The Samsung Galaxy A31 also has Samsung Pay, NFC, an in-display fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Although we are yet to know about the Galaxy A31’s pricing and availability, we expect the device to hit the pricing around last year’s Galaxy A30, which didn’t perform well up to the expectation.
