Samsung has demonstrated that it still sees great potential in the lower end of the smartphone market by taking the wraps off the Galaxy A41, its latest mid-range smartphone, which could go a long way towards making you feel like you8217;ve got a top-line Galaxy phone without costing nearly so much as the manufacturer8217;s flagships.
The Galaxy A41 (these naming conventions are getting harder to track) has a 6.1-inch screen that Samsung8217;s calling an Infinity-U AMOLED display, which isn8217;t as fancy as the likes of the Galaxy S20 but should still look pretty great for the price, which will be £269 in the UK.
Impressively, there8217;s a solid camera array on the phone8217;s back, too, despite the slashed price 8211; you still get three lenses, in the form of a 48MP main camera, a 5MP Depth camera and 8MP Ultra-Wide option, letting you get plenty of variety as you shoot. Of course, the front camera is also present and correct at 25MP, with a tiny notch in the screen another differentiator between this and Samsung8217;s more expensive handsets, which feature punch-hole cameras.
The phone will be available in blue, silver and black, and all three feature the slightly shaded designs you can see above, rather than just a solid colour 8211; Samsung is calling these Prism Crush colour schemes, for what it8217;s worth.
The A41 will come with 4GB of RAM and only 64GB of internal storage, but you8217;ll be able to expand this by up to 512GB using a microSD card, while its octa-core processor is also noticeably less powerful than other models.
Still, for £269 you can accept a few shortcuts, and we8217;ll look forward to getting our hands on it soon to put it through its paces. The phone should be available in May, in Europe at least.
