Samsung Galaxy A31 is new premium entry-level model

Samsung has a new affordable entry Galaxy A phone; the A31. The device has a large 6.4 inch display with Full HD+ resolution and a large built-in 5000 mAh battery. Another improvement is the Quad Camera on the back; 1 more than its predecessor.

The Galaxy A31 is already the third Galaxy A phone announced by Samsung this year. As far as we are concerned, this is the most interesting one. Although the screen size of 6.4 inches remained the same, the resolution has improved considerably. Going from HD to Full HD makes images a lot sharper.

Samsung uses a Super AMOLED panel for bright and vivid colors. At the top is a U-shaped notch for a 20 megapixel camera. This is an upgrade compared to last year, but unfortunately this is not the case for the lens. It goes from f/2.0 to f/2.2, which makes it slightly less sensitive to light. This may be compensated by the larger camera sensor. There is also an increase in resolution on the back. The main camera now has a 48 megapixel sensor. There is also an 8 megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 5 megapixel depth camera and a 5 megapixel macro camera. In total 4 different cameras; 1 more than last year's A30s.
