US consumers looking for affordable options among the best Samsung phones haven't had many options so far – like the brand the Samsung Galaxy A51 and the A01 from 1945, starting at $ 109 with other A phones Series announced will follow this summer.
The affordable Galaxy A01 and Galaxy A51 reach the United States first. As of today, Thursday, April 9, consumers can pick up the A51 with triple rear cameras, including a 48-megapixel main contactor and ultra-wide-angle and macro lenses. The 6.5-inch AMOLED display with punch hole and 4,000 mAh battery is a less sophisticated, yet powerful version of the Samsung Galaxy S20 flagship phone range ̵
The Galaxy A01, much cheaper from $ 109, with a 5.7-inch display and two rear lenses: a 13-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. In combination with a 3,000 mAh battery and 16 GB memory (expandable to 512 GB via microSD) and 2 GB RAM, this is a real budget option.
The remaining A-Series phones will be available later this summer (Q2 and Q3 2020). These include the Galaxy A11 and Galaxy A21 from $ 179 and $ 249 respectively, as well as the Galaxy A51 5G ($ 499) and the larger Galaxy A71 5G ($ 599).

Samsung's Budget US Invasion
These affordable phones are likely to find a more receptive consumer base than they would normally do when people limit their spending during the coronavirus outbreak.
The A51 and its siblings are also a strategy change for Samsung. We used to see here or there in the US an inexpensive Samsung smartphone offered by network operators here or there, but this seems to be a more expansive plan.
It also probably explains why we didn't launch the Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite or the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite – both exciting budget flagships that were demonstrated at CES 2020 – in the United States because of price and function points may have overlapped the A series.
Regardless of whether the A51 and his team should reach the United States or not, they offer good specs at reasonable prices that could rival the rumored iPhone 9 and Google Pixel 4a before these heavyweights hit the market. However, Samsung phones will have a clear advantage: We already know that the A51 5G and A71 5G can connect to 5G networks.
