The new Galaxy A30 and A50 come with Infinity-U waterdrop displays and unique glasstic designs. Galaxy A30 and A50 look quite similar to each other, especially from the front. Both sport droplet notches thanks to Samsung's new Infinity-U display. Both devices offer 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED displays. One of them even gets triple cameras & an in-display fingerprint sensor as well. Yet to go on sale in India.

Surely enough, Samsung is very much looking to make its Galaxy A-series phones look and feel as close to the flagship Galaxy S-series as possible. The new Galaxy A30 and A50 come with Infinity-U waterdrop displays and unique glasstic designs, and one of them even gets triple cameras and an in-display fingerprint sensor as well. While the Galaxy A30 and A50 are yet to go on sale in India, I did find them casually being displayed at MWC 2019, and I happened to check them out for a bit. Here's what I thought.

The Galaxy A30 and A50 look quite similar to each other, especially from the front. Both sport droplet notches thanks to Samsung's new Infinity-U display. There's a tiny notch on top, while the bezel around it and on the sides are noticeably thin. The chin, however, is noticeable and not quite as thing as the chin on the Galaxy S10. The rest of the front is all screen, and they look really good, at least on first glance.
