Samsung is bringing three of its new mid-range handsets, the Galaxy A50, A20 and A10E, to the US this summer. Pricing for the phones start at $179.99 for the A10E, $249.99 for the A20, and $349.99 for the A50. The A50 will be available on June 13th, with the release of the A20 and A10E to follow “in the coming weeks.”

With its higher price point, the Galaxy A50 unsurprisingly has the highest specs of the three handsets. It’s got a triple-camera array on its rear consisting of a main 25 megapixel sensor, a wide-angle 123-degree field-of-view lens, and a 5 megapixel depth sensor. The A20 has a dual camera setup consisting of a 13 megapixel sensor and a 5 megapixel ultrawide camera, while the A10E has a single 8 megapixel camera. Both the A50 and A20 have 4,000 mAh batteries, while the A10E’s is slightly smaller at 3,000 mAh.

All three of the phones feature one of Samsung’s new Infinity displays, each with a minimal display notch. The A50 has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, while both the A20 and A10E have Infinity-V displays that measure 6.4- and 5.83-inches respectively.

Absent from Samsung’s announcement is any mention of the other recent phones in the A-series lineup, including the Galaxy A80, A70, and A30, which have all been launched this year but so far haven’t been released in the US. The Galaxy A80 is a particularly interesting device, featuring a camera that slides up from the rear of the device and automatically rotates so it can function as both the phone’s rear and selfie camera.

The A50 will be available this week on Verizon, with some mix of A-series phones expected to arrive on Sprint, Comcast, AT&T, T-Mobile, and US Cellular as well.

Correction: This piece originally stated that the Samsung Galaxy A20 has a single camera on its rear. Samsung has since corrected its press release to say that the handset actually has dual back cameras. We have updated our coverage to reflect this.

So much info missing from this write-up! If you’re not going to post details at least maybe link to sources that do.

Agree, often when I read an article on the Verge I am looking for a "Source" Link or something similar to get more information…

I really miss the days of via/source links at the bottom.

Interestingly I believe these have Samsung processors – this may be the end of black mail from Qualcomm forcing Sammy to sell phones with Qualcomm’s here in the states.

You can buy the unlocked A series on most retailer like B&H already and they are much cheaper than the listed price here.

Looks like they aren’t available on Sprint or Verizon though.

Still pretty good specs/price compared to something like the Pixel 3a.

Makes sense that an international phone wouldn’t have CDMA…seems doubtful that they would add it for a US release but who knows.

Can Samsung please provide a more deceptive photo of their notch next time?

I love how carriers don’t train any of their people on upcoming products…the A50 literally releases tomorrow for Verizon and their chat support seemed to think that phone didn’t even exist.

They should have access to that information (goof on Verizon), but they wouldn’t be trained on anything but flagship phone models. They have 50 phones listed, and chat support is probably high turnover and/or internationally based.
