Samsung announces new Galaxy A01, A11, A21, A51 5G, and A71 5G for the US market

The Samsung Galaxy A series consistently includes some of the best value phones in the US. They usually have great prices, respectable specifications, and decent carrier availability. With Samsung launching a lot of A-series phones, it only makes sense for Samsung to launch some of these in the US. Just today, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy A01, Galaxy A11, Galaxy A21, and Galaxy A51 as LTE phones for the US market. Samsung also announced the Galaxy A51 5G, which we previously reported, and Galaxy A71 5G as non-flagship 5G phones.

The first two devices to launch will be the Galaxy A01 and Galaxy A51. These two phones launch tomorrow, April 9th, at select carriers, retailers, and The A01 starts at $109.99 and the A51 starts at $399.99. The A01 is obviously the most low-end device in the lineup with a 5.7-inch display, 2GB of RAM, and dual rear cameras. The A51 (non-5G) has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, and quad rear cameras.

Samsung also announced the Galaxy A11 and Galaxy A21, but they didn’t give an exact release date, only that they will be launching in the US sometime this year. The A11 and A21 are in the middle of the pack in terms of specifications. They have similar-ish specifications, but the A21 has quad rear cameras and 3GB of RAM. Samsung did not share all the technical details about these devices, but you can see a rundown of the key specs below.

The Galaxy A51 5G and Galaxy A71 5G are essentially the same as their LTE variants. The only difference between them is the 5G support and the higher price tags. The A51 5G will cost $499.99 and the A71 5G will cost $599.99. Both models will be available later this year. Samsung has yet to announce what forms of 5G the devices will be supporting, such as if they support mmWave as well as sub-6GHz. Either way, these are good options for anyone looking for a 5G-capable phone under $1,000.

The Galaxy A series is known for offering great value and these new entries are no different. In the US especially, it’s important to have more options like this as phones are generally more expensive and there aren’t many great value options. It’s also nice to see 5G devices continue to drop in price as the coverage becomes more widely available. Stay tuned for more details about carrier availability.
