“The Samsung Galaxy A50 Wi-Fi Alliance listing shows it will run Android Pie and supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands”
After months of leaks, Samsung Galaxy A50 it seems is finally gearing up for its launch. Carrying model number SM-A50FN/DS, the rumoured Samsung smartphone has just received Wi-Fi certification from Wi-Fi Alliance, giving rise to such speculation. The listing corroborates with last month’s Geekbench listing and further reveals that the smartphone will come in single-SIM and dual-SIM variants.
The Samsung Galaxy A50 listing, first spotted by Nashville Chatterclass, shows it will run the latest Android 9 Pie OS out-of-the-box. The certification has also revealed support for 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands on the smartphone. The model number SM-A50FN, which has been doing rounds in various reports time and again, seems to be the South Korean country variant of the Galaxy A50. The DS in the model number refers to dual-SIM functionality.
The phone was spotted last month on Geekbench running on the Exynos 9610 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. It is expected to come with 64GB and 128GB in-built storage and an optical in-display fingerprint scanner instead of the ultrasonic version that will be debut with the Galaxy S10. Other rumoured specs of Galaxy A50 include a 4,000 mAh battery and a 24-megapixel front camera for taking selfies.
However despite all the information and reports, Samsung has not started teasing the Galaxy A50. Reports suggest that it will be launched after the flagship Galaxy S10, whose launch is scheduled for February 20th.
