[Update: Launched in India] Samsung Galaxy A71 launches with punch hole display and 64MP quad rear camera

Update 1 (02/19/2020 @ 04:00 AM ET): Samsung has launched the Galaxy A71 in India. Scroll to the bottom for more information. The article as published on December 12, 2019, is preserved as below.

It was only a couple of weeks ago when we got our first glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy A71 in leaked renders. Today, the company officially, but quietly, unveiled the device alongside the Galaxy A51. This is one of the most attractive devices we’ve seen so far in Samsung’s popular A-series. The Galaxy A71 offers some premium features for what we assume will be a reasonable price. Let’s take a look.

The Galaxy A71 falls in line with the new design that Samsung has been showcasing with the A-series. It has a single, centered hole-punch on the front and quad cameras on the rear in a big rectangular bunch. The back of the device also features a gradient cross-hatch pattern in four different color options: Black, Silver, Blue, and Pink.

The quad cameras start with the 64MP main shooter with f/1.8 aperture. Next up is the 12MP ultra-wide camera at f/2.2. We round things out with dual 5MP cameras, one being a depth sensor and the other a macro lens. Combined with the 32MP front camera, there are plenty of megapixels to go around.

Moving to the front, the Galaxy A71 has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with the aforementioned “Infinity-O” punch-hole. The bezels around the display are very thin and nearly the same on all sides (the bottom chin is slightly thicker). There is also an in-display fingerprint sensor present here.

Let’s talk about power. The Galaxy A71 is equipped with an unnamed octa-core dual 2.2GHz + 1.8GHz processor, 6/8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage. The processor is likely the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730. Battery life should be good as it’s packing a 4,500 mAh battery. Lastly, the A71 should ship with One UI 2.0 on top of Android 10.

Unfortunately, Samsung did not share when the Galaxy A71 will be available for purchase or how much it will cost. The Galaxy A70 was a very affordable device and we expect the A71 to be similar.
