There are six new models of the Samsung 2020 A-series, and they aim to dominate the mass and mid-markets. The only problem is that we don’t know which of the devices will come to Australia yet.

The Samsung 2020 A-series is named by a 1, e.g. A71, A51 etc.

The Samsung 2019 A-series – the A20, A30, A50 and A70 offered features and style we had not seen at prices from $279 to $649. To say they were the safest non-Chinese made purchase is even more relevant now. Enter the Samsung 2020 A-series.

The Samsung 2020 A-series

All Android 10 and Samsung One UI 2.0. NFC from 31 upwards. All have fingerprint recognition and .35mm audio jack—the price where known is shown.

GadgetGuy’s take – Samsung 2020 A-series is what Joe and Jane Average want

COVID-19 has delayed all major launches, but we do know the A51 and A71 are on the way. The A70 was one of my favourite 2019 phones scoring 4.9/5 – it ticked flagship boxes at half the price.

We will update the table once we have confirmation of Australian models.
