Samsung Galaxy A30s hits South Africa for R4799

The Samsung Galaxy A30s, an upgraded version of the A30 it launched earlier this year, is now available in South Africa.

The mid-range device made its local debut alongside the Galaxy Fold at an event in Johannesburg on Thursday.

Both have been available since August in some regions.

Nevertheless, the A30s does spice up the country’s mid-range battle somewhat.

The device features a 6.4-inch display with a 1560×720 resolution — that’s a lot lower than the A30’s 2340×1080 panel.

It also includes 4GB of RAM and a 128GB storage option.

Samsung’s also given the Galaxy A30s an underscreen fingerprint scanner, making it the cheapest device in the market to boast this feature.

With other additions include three cameras instead of two, a beefier 25MP primary sensor at the rear, and a bevy of new colour options, including “Prism Crush” black, white and violet.

The phone’s currently available online through Cellucity retailing at R4799 — that’s R200 more than the A30’s launch price.
