It is time for another Galaxy A-series smartphone upgrade. Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy A41 mid-range phone quietly in Japan. It is a direct successor to last year's Galaxy A40 that made its debut in the Netherlands. The newer variant brings a complete design overhaul to match with contemporary phones along with improved specifications and features.
The Galaxy A41 sports a 6.1-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display. It is a notched display like the predecessor but is slightly taller. There is an undisclosed octa-core processor which is speculated to be the MediaTek Helio P65. The phone has been released in a single 4GB RAM and 64GB storage configuration option. The good thing is that it features a dedicated microSD card slot for storage expansion purposes.
Samsung has opted for a triple rear camera setup which is an improvement over last year's dual cameras. These include a 48-megapixel primary wide-angle sensor with f/2.0 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The selfie camera is a 25-megapixel shooter with f/2.2 aperture.
The whole package is powered by a 3,500mAh battery with 15W fast charging support. It will run One UI 2.0 based on Android 10 out of the box. Other features include 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port, in-display fingerprint scanner, IPX5/IPX8 and IP6X certification for dust and water resistance. Samsung is yet to reveal Galaxy A41 pricing and availability details.
