Samsung have just announced a major price drop on its top smartphones in the mid-range and flagship category. The offer was announced under the name “Subha Bada Dashain” . Under this offer, four smartphones from the mid-range category namely, Galaxy A30, A50, A70 and M40’s – likewise, three smartphones from the flagship category, Samsung S10, S10+ and S10+ (512GB), price are slashed. So, let’s dive in further and explore more on this festive offer!
The Samsung A30 flaunts a “glastic” design on the rear which is Samsung’s fancy name for glossy plastic. Complementing the plastic rear style is the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the front. The front also houses a U-shaped notch for the front camera.And, as expected from Samsung, underneath this design is the 6.4” Super AMOLED display with HD+ resolution. Running the display and everything else is an Octa-Core Exynos 7904 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM. It’s not a chart topper and the overall performance is okay. Little stutters and frame drops can be expected with heavy usage. The phone offers 32/64GB of storage which is adequate enough.
The rear mounts dual camera setup with 16MP primary camera at the center and 5MP ultrawide as a support lens. Photos are quite alright with decent details in good lighting conditions. The battery of the phone is really good though. With 4000mAh battery, the phone should easily last the day with medium usage. Also, the phone has an 15W charging support. So, phone should charge quick enough.
Currently, after the offer, phone has been priced at Rs. 24,890 with a discount of Rs 1,100. For more in-depth review of the device, check this article.
The Samsung A50 is the second addition of the mid-ranging A-series. It has some important changes as compared to the A30. Firstly, the Exynos 9610 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM. This brings a boost to the previously lacking performance in the Galaxy A30. It’s dependable for everyday tasks and games run quite smoothly.Secondly, there’s addition of the in-display fingerprint scanner. It’s not that fast but is quite responsive. The storage has also been bumped up to 64GB which is quite nice.
Lastly, there’s the new lineup of the rear and front cameras. At the core is a 25MP shooter paired with 8MP ultrawide and 5MP depth sensor. In daylight, photos are quite good with enough details and quality in them. However, the sharpening is a little aggressive. The frontal camera has also been moved up to 25MP, which does produce some decent results.
As of now, the phone is priced at Rs 29,490 with Rs 2,000 discount. For more details on the phone, check out this link.
The A70 is the third iteration in the mid-ranging A-series. A70 is aimed at users that want an above average large display, performance, and fabulous battery life. Starting off with design, it’s identical to the Galaxy A50. This display size has been moved up a notch; At 6.7” it has the essence of sAMOLED screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio.
One major replacement in the hardware section of the phone is the Snapdragon 675 processor paired with 6Gb RAM. The performance has improved a lot. Overall the processing wise the phone is fluid and super smooth. Additionally, the battery performance has also been improved quite a bit. The 4500mAh battery life is a monster which easily lasts a day with even heavy usage. Besides the 25W fast charging can get the phone juiced up in no time at all.
The other major improvement is the 32MP primary camera replacement. The photos are quite good-looking with balanced lighting, leveled contrast and a wide dynamic range. The 32MP selfie camera is also quite a looker in terms of camera output.
The phone’s price has been lowered to Rs 42,890 with a discount of Rs 5,100. If you’re more into this phone, here’s the full review of the device.
The M40 is a lower-tier mid-ranging smartphone that is almost as powerful as the high-tier mid-ranger A70. Design wise it has a completely different outlook than the A70. It’s got a punch hole cutout on the top right which is rather clean. But the compensation part is in the screen. At 6.3”, it’s got a TFT capacitive screen with HD+ resolution. It’s not that bad but an AMOLED screen would have been way better.
Under the hood, it has a Snapdragon 675 processor coupled with 6Gb RAM. The overall performance is smooth and snappy. The battery does fall a little short at 3500mAh and fast charging at 15W.
The rear camera has the same setup as the Samsung A70. So, cameras are great overall. The frontal camera is 16MP but is quite decent.
The phone is currently priced at Rs 29,990 after a discount of Rs 6,200. If you’re more into the review section, here’s a link to the complete review of the device.
Samsung S10 and S10+
The S10 and S10+ are from the flagship category from Samsung. In terms of design, both phones are almost identical. The small difference is that the S10+ has a bigger camera cutout on the front for its dual cameras. Samsung Galaxy S10 comes with a beautiful 6.1 inches infinity Dynamic AMOLED display with over 90% screen to body ratio. The S10+ is slightly larger at 6.4” screen size.
Both the phones pack in an octa-core Snapdragon 855 processor with 8Gb setup in S10 and S10+. The S10+ has a huge battery life of 4100mAh with fast charging at 15W. While, the battery on the S10 is slightly worrying with just 3400mAh battery life with 15W fast charging.
On the rear, there a horizontal triple camera setup with 12MP primary at the center followed by a 12MP telephoto and 16MP ultrawide. The camera quality as expected from Samsung flagships is quite good. There’s a single 10MP selfie camera on the S10 while the S10+ has an additional 8MP depth sensor.
The Samsung S10 is priced at Rs 84,900 after a price drop of Rs 17,000. While there are two variants of the S10+ priced at Rs 135,900 after a discount of Rs 18,600 for the 512GB variant. And Rs 105,900 after a discount of Rs 17,600 for the 128GB variant.
Well, that’s all for this one. I personally really like the offer of the Samsung Galaxy A70. The phone is really great with awesome specifications. And, a cashback of Rs 5,100 is the perfect sign for you to get this device if you’re interested.
