Samsung’s latest Galaxy A50 is a feature packed mid-range smartphone with a huge 6.4-inch AMOLED display and 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution, with Waterdrop notch above the screen. The major selling point of the device is the in-screen fingerprint scanner, which is the first on any of the Galaxy A-series sor far. The Galaxy A50 also comes with a triple rear camera sensor, absent in the previous A-series.
