Keen to win over cost-conscious customers drawn to the base £729 model of the Apple iPhone 11 (opens in new tab), Samsung is readying a new smartphone that will sit beneath both the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Samsung Galaxy S10 (opens in new tab), offering a flagship-level performance – with a few sacrifices made here and there – at a diluted price.
- Apple iPhone 11 too expensive? There’s a cheaper iPhone SE 2 on the way (opens in new tab)
- Google Pixel 4 software looks silky smooth in newly leaked videos (opens in new tab)
- Samsung Galaxy S11 launch date revealed – and it's exactly when you expected (opens in new tab)
Dubbed the Samsung Galaxy A91 (SM-A915F), the handset is equipped with a massive 6.7-inch Infinity U Display, a Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 855 CPU and 8GB of RAM, according (opens in new tab) to SamMobile. It's also rumoured to feature a tri-camera (48MP + 12MP + 8MP), a 4500mAh battery and 128GB of expandable storage.
That's near enough level with the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (opens in new tab) and Samsung Galaxy S10, save for the fact both the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S handsets have a far superior camera setup and a higher resolution screen. But that's a small price to pay (pun intended) for a handset set to retail for a fraction of the cost of the flagship duo.
For comparison, the entry-level iPhone 11 has a 6.1-inch LCD screen (versus the OLED on the Samsung), an Apple A13 Bionic CPU, 4GB of RAM, a dual-camera on the rear (12MP + 12MP), 64GB of storage and a 3110mAh cell. So the Samsung Galaxy A91 comes out on top in the hardware department – on paper, at least.
There's no word on when the Samsung Galaxy A91 will hit the shelves.
