This year Samsung has behaved with the mid-range, swelling its catalog with new family members Galaxy A. Two of them, the Samsung Galaxy A30 and Samsung Galaxy A50 arrive with an all-screen design without hardly any frames, in which a notch or notch in the form of a drop of water is not missing. Both have similar characteristics, such as a 4,000 mAh battery with fast charging, Android 9 system under the personalization layer of the company Samsung One UI, or a price within reach of all budgets.
However the Galaxy A50 hits a jump at the level of benefits with respect to its range brother. This is something that is perfectly appreciated in the photographic section, in greater power and performance or in some additional functions, such as a fingerprint reader under the screen. If you are interested in knowing the main differences between these two terminals, keep reading. Reviewing five of them.

Although if we put them in front the two terminals are practically the same, the thing changes a lot when you turn them over. Samsung Galaxy A30 includes a double sensor and a physical fingerprint reader right in the center. However the Galaxy A50 has three sensors instead of two and lacks a physical fingerprint reader. This is available under the panel. In any case, despite these differences, the two phones have a clean and minimalist design built on what the company calls 3D Glasstic, a plastic back but with special treatment to have a glass appearance.
The front, as we say, has no differences. There is no presence of barely frames on both sides of the screen and they have a notch in the form of a drop of water. Also, the measurements are the same, except for the weight, since the A50 is a heavier gram.
Another of the most important differences is found in power. Samsung Galaxy A30 is a simpler device than the A50 and it shows in terms of performance. The terminal is powered by an Exynos 7904 processor (two cores at 1.8 GHz + six cores at 1.6 GHz), accompanied by 3 or 4 GB of RAM.
For its part, the Galaxy A50 houses inside a Samsung Exynos 9610, an eight-core Soc with four of them, the most powerful, running at 2.3 GHz and the other four doing so at a clock speed of 1.7 Ghz. This comes from the hand of a RAM of 4 or 6 GB. So, This team is more prepared to use several processes at the same time. or when using heavier applications.
As for storage, the Samsung Galaxy A30 offers 32 or 64 GB expandable through the use of microSD cards. In regards to the A50, repeat with a 64 GB version, although there is also to choose another 128 GB. This model can also expand its capacity through the use of microSD cards.

While the Samsung Galaxy A30 includes a dual 16 megapixel sensor with f / 1.7 aperture accompanied by another 5 megapixel with f / 2.2 aperture for bokeh photos, the Galaxy A50 boasts a triple one. This is formed by a 25 megapixel sensor with f / 1.7 aperture and autofocus, followed by another 8 megapixel wide angle with f / 2.2 aperture and a third 5 megapixel support lens with f / 2.2 aperture with different functions. Among them, detect the depth and thus achieve images with a selective focus that you can change once the photo is captured.
In addition, it is capable of recognizing up to 20 scenes in order to apply filters that improve the result automatically. On the other hand, takes advantage of Artificial Intelligence to help the assistant Bixby, and thus recognize objects and offer information about them.
How could it be otherwise, the Samsung Galaxy A30 is somewhat cheaper than the Galaxy A50, although taking into account that this presents superior characteristics The difference is quite small. Currently, you can purchase the A30 through Amazon at a price of 250 euros in its version with 4 GB of RAM + 64 GB of storage.
