The Galaxy A20 is one of the most affordable and relatively low-end phones in the Samsung A-Series, which was introduced in March 2019. Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy A20s on Tuesday, September 24, 2019, after rumors in various media in recent weeks that it will continue to offer this product. The A20s were unveiled in Malaysia a week ago, along with the A30s and A50s, but this time there is talk of an imminent presence in global markets. The A20s is not the first update to the original A20, and in April a weaker phone from the family, the A20e, was introduced.
As you might expect from the name of this phone, the A20s is a low-end phone in the middle series of Samsung smartphones, which according to a pre-determined procedure, despite its beautiful and eye-catching design and equipped with a large screen, in more important cases such as camera and processor has little to say. Needless to say, it is largely consistent with the price set for it. 6.5-inch + HD display This model is equipped with a drop notch (or, as Samsung puts it, Infinity-V design) that houses an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Although the screen is one-tenth of an inch larger than the 6.4-inch model on the A20, its manufacturing technology has been reduced from Super AMOLED to LCD, so you can’t talk about upgrading it just by getting a bigger screen.
The larger screen has a clear effect on the length and width of the device, and its dimensions of 77 × 77.5 × 163.3 mm are clearly larger than those of the A20 with dimensions of 7.87 × 74.67 × 158.49 mm. This effect on weight has continued, and while the A20s weigh in at 169 grams, which is a relatively light phone in this category, the A20s at 183 grams has experienced a relatively large increase.
On the back of the phone, three video modules are used on the left side, which is an improvement over the A20 with two main 13 and 5 megapixel cameras and Ultravide. In this set, we have a 13-megapixel main camera with f / 1.8 and an 8-megapixel Ultraviolet camera with f / 2.2 and a 120-degree field of view, which are accompanied by a 5-megapixel depth-of-field sensor. The single LED flash and fingerprint sensor are also in the same area.
Processing on the A20s is apparently done with a Snapdragon 450 processor with 14-nanometer lithography and 8 1.8 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 cores, which is a noticeable setback compared to the Exynos 7884 on the A20 with 2 A73 cores and 6 A53 cores. . The phone has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable internal memory (up to another 512 GB), which is similar to the A20 in all cases.
The phone’s battery capacity has not changed and it is still the same relatively large 4,000 mAh model that is charged with a 15-watt charger via the USB-C port. The communication part of this model should mention the single band Wi-Fi version n, Bluetooth 4.2 and GPS / GLONASS / Galileo? BeiDou routers, and in the meantime, NFC has been omitted.
The Samsung Galaxy A20s are available in blue, red and green with Android 9-pin operating system and One UI interface, and are priced at around € 150.
