Samsung’s A-series of midrange phones have three new members: the Galaxy A50, A20 and A10E. If you want a new Galaxy phone, these are some of your cheapest options, sitting just above Samsung’s entry-level Galaxy J line. The A-series is much cheaper than a top tier Galaxy phone. The Galaxy S10 Plus, for instance, costs $1,000 and the supposedly upcoming Galaxy Fold (Samsung delayed its launch due to a number of screen issues on its pre-production units) is priced at nearly $2,000.

The most advanced of the new trio is the Galaxy A50, which we got an early glimpse  of in February at MWC 2019. It costs $350 and features a 6.4-inch display, a 4,000-mAh battery and 64GB of built-in storage with the option to expand up to 512GB. On the back are three cameras, which includes a wide-angle lens as well as a “depth lens,” which is used to take portrait shots with blurry, dramatic backgrounds. 

The $250 Galaxy A20 has a 6.4-inch screen, a 13-megapixel rear camera and the same 4,000-mAh battery as the A50. Lastly, the cheapest of the bunch of the Galaxy A10E. At $180, it features a 5.83-inch display, an 8-megapixel camera and a 3,000-mAh battery. Both of the phones have just 32GB of onboard memory, but you can expand storage with a microSD card (not included).

All three phones run Android 9.0, with Samsung’s new One UI layered on top. Though exact availability dates for the Galaxy A20 and A10E have not been released, the Galaxy A50 will be available on June 13.
