Along with the availability and price details for the Note 10 Lite, Samsung on Thursday announced its refreshed Galaxy A line-up for South Africa — arguably its most important line.
Five new devices will be heading to the country during 2020 from February through to July ranging in price from R2999 to R8999.
Two phones are currently available, while three haven’t yet been conceived. Nevertheless, we look at each device in more detail below.
Samsung Galaxy A11
Available from July 2020, the phone will feature a 6.4-inch display with a punch hole selfie camera in the screen’s corner.
It’ll feature a physical fingerprint scanner at the rear and a triple rear camera headlined by a 13MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth camera.
It’ll boast a 4000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support, with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
As for the retail price, that number’s a respectable R2999.
Samsung Galaxy A21
Hitting South Africa a month earlier, the Galaxy A21 also features a triple rear camera but packs a 48MP sensor and 2MP depth sensor. There’s also an 8MP ultrawide.
This device will feature a 5000mAh battery, 15W fast charging, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage too.
Up front, there’s a central selfie camera cut out of the 6.5-inch display. Flipping it over, you’ll find a rear fingerprint sensor.
As for price, you’re looking at R3499.

Samsung Galaxy A31
We’ve mentioned the Galaxy A31 earlier this week, and Samsung today confirmed its existence. But it’ll only be available from May for R5499.
It sports a 6.4-inch display which strangely enough still features an Infinity-U display — the design you’ll find on last year’s Galaxy A devices.
The premium gets you a fingerprint reader beneath the screen, a 48MP primary camera, a 5MP depth sensor and an ultrawide lens with an 8MP sensor behind it. Oh, and there’s a fourth camera too: a 5MP macro snapper.
It also packs a 5000mAh battery wih 15W fast charging support, a 4GB wad of RAM and a 128GB storage bank.
This device seems to be the most balanced of the range.
