Samsung has recently shed more light on several of its new entry-level Galaxy-series phones for 2020; however, the A31 was not among them. However, with its new listing with the Korean retailer Coupang, more details on this phone are finally available.

The Galaxy A30 successor is, as it turns out, a phone with a 6.4-inch display, within which its fingerprint reader is found. It has a slightly more old-fashioned U-shaped notch for its 20MP selfie camera.

On that note, this phone is another A-line quad-cam wonder: it has 48+8+5+5MP sensors in the OEM's more up-to-date L shape. Furthermore, the last 2 lenses are for depth and macro generation respectively, whereas they are often left to 2MP sensors instead in other new phones.

The A31 SKU now listed on Coupang (the SM-A315N) has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, with an option on another 512GB via microSD card. These relatively generous specs go for a total of 374,000 won, or ~US$306. Unfortunately for Korean fans of affordable Samsung mobile tech, its pre-order stock appears to be depleted for now, however.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
