Samsung has announced that several new Galaxy A-line phones will become available in the USA soon. This "select" list includes the 5G versions of the A51 and A71. It also extends to the ultra-budget A01, which drops the entry-level pricing of this series well below US$150 in 2020.

Samsung US has announced that the 2020 Galaxy A series is coming. The OEM claims that it will bring many specs such as punch-hole displays to various price-tiers of this market. Accordingly, models that apply to the budget, low-to-mid and mid-range sectors have been chosen for the Ax1 line's new home.

They are the successors to the Galaxy A10, A20 and A50, also joined by the A01 in the US for 2020. The latter has been revealed as a 5.7-inch HD+ device with the new portfolio's only notched display. Samsung has also mentioned that it has a 13MP main rear camera and a 2MP depth-sensor, and that it has a 3,000mAh battery for the first time in the course of this new announcement.

The A01 is priced at US$109.99, whereas the progressively more premium A11, A21 and A51 cost $179.99, $249.99 and $399.99 respectively. Furthermore, this latest premiere for the new Galaxy As has also revealed the A21's specs for the first time. It has a 6.5-inch HD+ screen with an in-display selfie camera,  quad rear cameras with a 16MP main shooter and a 4000mAh battery.

However, this is not the end of Galaxy A goodness for US consumers. Samsung has also announced that this line's 5G variants are also coming to this country. They are the Galaxy A51 5G and A71 5G, which will cost $499.99 and $599.99 respectively.

They should have the same specs as their 4G/LTE counterparts on their release, although their SoCs still remain to be established. According to the latest leaks, they may be the Exynos 980 for the A51 5G, whereas the A71 5G is now thought to rock the Snapdragon 765G.

Technically, the 2020 Galaxy A series will launch tomorrow (April 9, 2020) in the US, with availability info on the A01 and A51 4G/LTE to start off with. This will be followed by the same on the A11 and A21 in the summer, and on the 5G A51 and A71 at a less determinate point in the year.

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.
