Samsung first announced its popular A-series phones in the US back in April. While the company detailed a total of six phones at the time, it didn’t launch them all of them at once. Only the Galaxy A11, Galaxy A01, and Galaxy A51 were available in the US till now, but Samsung has just confirmed the release date of a fourth phone in the series, the Galaxy A71 5G.
When it releases, the new Galaxy A71 will be the only 5G phone in Samsung’s mid-range arsenal in the US. The brand is also expected to announce the Galaxy A51 5G at some point, but right now, it only sells the 4G version of the phone in the country.
In terms of specs, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G brings the Snapdragon 765G processor, a large 6.7-inch AMOLED screen, a 4,500mAh battery, 25W fast charging, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. Its quad-camera setup is led by a 64MP sensor. A 12MP wide-angle lens, a 5MP macro shooter, and a 5MP depth camera complete the setup. Upfront is a 32MP selfie snapper.
All these specs seem pretty solid on paper and could make the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G a very popular device in the mid-range segment. However, we don’t know which processor Samsung is using on the phone and that could make all the difference.
Samsung Galaxy A71 5G: When and where to buy in the US?
Samsung will make the Galaxy A71 5G available for sale in the US on June 19. Customers will be able to purchase the phone from Samsung.com, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The phone will also be available through AT&T, Verizon, additional carriers, and unlocked by Samsung later this summer.
Samsung Galaxy A71 5G: Price
Samsung previously announced that the Galaxy A71 5G would be priced at $599. That makes it almost half the price of Samsung’s cheapest 5G flagship in the US— the Galaxy S10 5G — which costs $1,149.
At that price, Samsung’s new phone will be one of the most affordable 5G-enabled devices available in the US, if not the cheapest. Closest to that price point are the OnePlus 8 and the LG V60, both of which start at $700.
