On the hunt for a flagship phone, without the high price point to match? Brand new for 2020, Samsung has released a selection of mid-range handsets which, given their top-end specs and features, are remarkably budget-friendly. Whether your priority is gaming, photography or streaming your favourite shows, there’s a mid-range Samsung smartphone that will tick all your boxes, so take a look at the latest handsets below.
Samsung Galaxy A51
Highlights: 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, 48MP + 12MP + 5MP + 5MP rear camera, 32MP front camera, 164 x 160.9 x 7.9mm, 172g
With minimal bezels and a sizeable 6.5-inch screen, as well the unusual prism design on the rear, the Samsung Galaxy A51 is a stylish handset with plenty to offer any user.
While the Galaxy A51 is affordable, you won’t be disappointed by the main camera setup. The quad camera system features a 48MP main lens, 12MP Ultra Wide Camera for those landscapes, 5MP depth lens for sharp portraits and a second 5MP Macro Cam, perfect for taking detailed closeup shots. Plus, if you’re keen on videography, Super Steady mode will help you shoot clear footage on-the-go, while the 4,000mAh cell means there’s no need to worry about your battery running out while you film.
It’s not just the camera you’ll love – the Samsung Galaxy A51 is powered by an Octa-Core processor, which keeps Android 10 running without a hitch. This operating system also features Bixby Routines, a super handy addition which allows your handset to reflect your habits. It’ll learn when to turn on Night Mode, reduce blue light and even stay unlocked while you’re driving.
Samsung Galaxy A71
Highlights: 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 64MP + 12MP + 5MP + 5MP rear camera, 32MP front camera, 163.6 x 76 x 7.7mm, 179g
Measuring in slightly larger than the A51, the almost bezel-less display on the Samsung Galaxy A71 stretches 6.7 inches. This, alongside Game Booster – a specific interface with an accessible menu – and the option to have 6GB or 8GB RAM, makes it an ideal handset for users who are big on mobile gaming.
The camera system on this handset is almost identical to the Samsung Galaxy A51, with the exception of the main lens in the quad camera setup, which is 64MP rather than 48MP. You can enjoy many of the same photography features, like the Macro Cam for capturing miniscule details, and a depth camera which can easily achieve a bokeh effect. The 32MP front camera comes with Selfie Focus, so even your self-portraits will be high-resolution.
Security is front and centre in this handset too, with high-tech biometric authentication in the form of an On-Screen Fingerprint scanner, as well as the option of face recognition.
Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite
Highlights: 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display, 4MP + 12 MP + 5MP rear camera, 32MP front camera, 162.5 x 75.6 x 8.1mm, 186g
Designed to make many of the standout specs from the flagship S10 range more accessible, the powerful Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite is great value for money. This handset plays host to the same 6.7-inch display as the Samsung Galaxy A71, which is interrupted only by the discrete notch of the 32MP front camera, so when you’re streaming YouTube videos, your viewing experience will be virtually seamless.
The triple-lens camera system on the rear features the 12MP Ultra Wide Camera, which can capture 123-degree angles, so you’ll never have to leave anyone out of your shot. Live Focus makes shooting video footage super easy, as you can bring your subject into sharp clarity either before or after filming, while the Zoom-in Mic feature allows you to turn up the volume on specific elements of your recording – so you can say goodbye to background noise.
Fuelled by an **Octa-Core processor, the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite also has a 4,500mAh battery, and with Super Fast Charging technology you can get a whole day of use from just 30 minute’s charge.
Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite
Highlights: 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display, 12MP + 12MP + 12MP rear camera, 32MP front camera, 163.7 x 76.1 x 8.7mm, 199g
The same super small camera notch as the Samsung Galaxy A51 is the only thing that punctuates the Galaxy Note10 Lite's 6.7-inch Infinity-O display, which makes it well-suited to gaming or catching up with your favourite shows on-the-go.
The S-Pen is a clear highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Note10 Lite; seamlessly housed in the handset itself, the S-Pen is a creative tool, remote control and magic wand, all rolled into one. As well as using it for staple purposes like notations, drawing and writing, the S-Pen is Bluetooth enabled, so it can activate your phone’s camera or pause your music.
The Samsung Galaxy Note10 camera system is also impressive, with three 12MP lenses in the rear-facing setup, as well as features like auto-focus and Night Mode. Plus, you can really make the most of the 32MP front camera, using the S-Pen to snap images from different perspectives, without being tied to your handset.
