Besides the Galaxy A51, Samsung has now officially announced its Galaxy A71 device, which packs a larger screen and is powered by a Snapdragon chipset. The South-Korean technology giant has borrowed features from its flagship S and Note series and passed them down to the mid-range handsets.
Infinity-O Super AMOLED Display
Similar to the Galaxy A51, Samsung has packed the Galaxy A71 with the Infinity-O Super AMOLED display. The device has a 6.7-inch screen with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 and a 20: aspect ratio, with the extra size meaning users are getting a higher PPI density on the A51 than on the more pricey Galaxy A71.
A Quad, 64MP Camera
The Samsung Galaxy A71 features a very similar camera array to the Galaxy A51, but it has two main differences. The main sensor is a 64 MP, in comparison to the 48 MP on the A51. Here is the full camera hardware of the Galaxy A71:
- 64-megapixel, f/1.8, 26mm (wide), 1/1.7″, 0.8µm, PDAF
- 12-megapixel, f/2.2, 13mm (ultrawide)
- 5-megapixel, f/2.4, (wide), dedicated macro camera
- 5-megapixel, f/2.2, depth sensor
- The front camera is the same on both handsets, namely a 32 MP with HDR abilities.
Android 10 and Samsung One UI
Another significant difference between the Galaxy A51 and the A71 is the software that comes pre-installed on the devices. While the A51 is said to roll out with Android 9 Pie, the Galaxy A71 is allegedly packing Android 10. Samsung has not confirmed this news, though, but that is what numerous reports say.
Samsung’s own One UI will be implemented on both devices, and the processor is a Snapdragon 730 instead of the company’s own Exynos SoC. The device will come in a 6GB or 8GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. It will also pack 1TB of expandable storage via a microSD card.
Battery, Price and Release Date
The Samsung Galaxy A71 will allegedly feature a 4,500-mAh battery, which is 500-mAh more than the A51. Besides the bigger battery, the handset also supports fast-charging up to 25W. The device will launch on Samsung’s online store this week, with a price tag of €469 in Europe. The U.S. price is still unknown.
