Samsung wants to sell you a Galaxy phone, và it doesn't care how much you're willing to spkết thúc. It's two folding phones and three new Galaxy Străng tròn flagship phones are all priced somewhere between $1,000 & $2,000. If that's too costly, try one of its six older Galaxy S10 models & chú ý 10. They're going for $600 khổng lồ $1,100.

And if you're unwilling to lớn spkết thúc $600 to buy one of those 11 phones? Well, Samsung is now plugging that hole with a half dozen more Android phones that start as cheap as $110.

Samsung's new Galaxy A range includes the A01, A11, A21, A51, A51 5G, & A71 5G. Each mã sản phẩm has an escalating set of capabilities, which we'll get lớn below, but all of them run Android 10 and come with a MicroSD thẻ slot so you can add more storage if you need (and you might). Samsung hasn't commented on whether these phones will receive sầu regular security or version updates, or for how long.


At $110, the A01 is the cheapest of the lot. It has a 5.7-inch nearly HD (720p) screen with a notch to lớn house the selfie camera on the front. You get a dual-lens camera system: the main camera is paired with a depth camera used for improved portrait mode. There’s a 3,000-mAh battery, which should keep the phone running for a day considering its low-power specs, và there’s no fingerprint sensor. You only get 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, so don’t expect it to run any intensive sầu apps or games like Fortnite well. It won't have sầu the storage khổng lồ hold them, either. It will debut exclusively at Verizon starting April 9 and will release on other networks in the following weeks.


If you want a bigger screen, the A11 costs $180 unlocked & steps things up with a larger 6.4-inch (still 720p) screen. Instead of a notch, this phone's display has a hole-punch cutout on the top left for the selfie camera, mimicking Samsung’s higher-over devices. You also get a 5-megapx ultrawide angle camera. The battery is bigger at 4,000 mAh và so is the 32 GB of storage (though you should still ayên for a minimum of 64 GB storage). You still only get 2 GB of RAM, but hey, at least there’s a fingerprint sensor. It’s launching later this summer, but Samsung hasn’t mentioned what networks it will operate on.

Typically, we bởi vì not recommend phones this cheap because they tend to lớn feel laggy. The amount of storage và RAM on these two devices will likely hamper performance và annoy you, so we advise caution.

The unlocked A21 costs $250, & has a 6.5-inch HD (still 720p!) screen with a fancy 13-megapixel selfie camera in its display's hole-punch cutout. The rear camera array has four lenses: a higher-kết thúc 16 megapx lens, 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, a depth camera for portrait shots, & an added macro camera so you can snap super up-cthảm bại photos of almost anything. The battery, storage, and existence of a fingerprint sensor remain the same as the A11, but you get faster charging to juice the phone up a little quicker. RAM has been bumped lớn 3 GB, so performance should be a little better. This phone is somewhat comparable khổng lồ the Motorola Moto lớn G, but the display won't be as crisp.

The $400 A51 (also unlocked) is the first on the danh sách with a Full HD (1080p) pixel resolution for its 6.5-inch screen. This phone has a similar quad-camera array as the A21, but Samsung bumped the megapixel count with a 48-megapixel main camera and bumps for the other lenses. The fingerprint sensor is built inkhổng lồ the screen in this phone, just lượt thích Samsung’s flagships, and you get 128 GB of storage with 4 GB of RAM. The A51 will be available from Verizon starting April 9, Sprint on April 10, và will come lớn other networks và retailers in the following weeks.

There’s another version of the A51 with a 5G modem inside it, allowing you to access faster mạng internet speeds—if you happen lớn have sầu a data plan that supports it and live sầu in one of the few places where 5G is available. This A51 also bumps the RAM and battery to lớn 6 GB và 4,500 mAh, respectively.

Finally, there’s the A71 5G. It's the most powerful, adding a 64-megapixel main camera leading the quad-camera array and a 6.7-inch Full HD screen.

Samsung says it hopes to support both sub-6 và millimeter-wave sầu 5G, two different types of 5G giải pháp công nghệ. But it hasn't clarified if that goal applies to lớn these phones. We'll have to wait until they launch this summer. They will join a wave sầu of affordable 5G phones, including the Nocơ 8.3 5G. For more details, you can check our in-depth 5G guide.

As high-end điện thoại thông minh prices have skyrocketed past $1,000, a battle has begun over lower-over handset sales. There’s already plenty of competition. Apple is heavily rumored lớn announce its $400 iPhone very soon và Google is expected launch a new Pixel 4A in the next few weeks. New affordable Motorola Mokhổng lồ G phones are launching this month & there are plenty of great offerings from OnePlus, Notê, Hãng Asus, and soon, TCL.

Samsung’s A series might sound robust, but with 17 devices in its portfolio, the sheer volume of choices may leave many buyers overwhelmed. We'll vì chưng our best to lớn help make sense of the options as they come out this spring và summer.
