Samsung could try to combat the economic crisis caused by the health emergency by increasing its efforts to lower the prices of the next 5G smartphone. Over the next few months, the fifth-generation standard is likely to be brought to many mid-range devices.
Just in the past few hours, IDC has speculated that smartphone sales could fall by more than 26%. Last February, there was already a -38% increase in shipments compared to the same period of the previous year. This situation would be further convincing the Korean manufacturer to revise the mid-range, as demonstrated by the numerous new devices of the series "Galaxy A" and "Galaxy M".
Just a few days ago, the 5G version of two smartphones that have been available for several months was launched. These are:
- Samsung Galaxy A71 5G: SoC Exynos 980, 8 GB RAM, 128 GB of internal memory, quad-cam (from 64 MP, 12 MP, 5 MP and 5 MP), 32 MP front camera, 4,370 mAh battery and compatibility with 5G.
- Samsung Galaxy A51 5G: SoC Exynos 980, 6 GB RAM, 128 GB of internal memory, quad-cam (from 48 MP, 12 MP, 5 MP and 5 MP), 32 MP front camera, 4,500 mAh battery and compatibility with 5G.
The two devices mentioned arrived in the market with a Price significantly lower compared to last year's 5G smartphones: 499.99 (Galaxy A51 5G) and 599.99 euros (Galaxy A71 5G), compared to the Galaxy S10 5G's 1,299.99 dollars.
