The teaser does not reveal any specifications of the Galaxy A50s. It's still made out of glasstic as last time but with a new 3D prism pattern, which is glossy, as compared to a matte finish towards the edges.

Samsung's first foldable phone features a 7.3-inch AMOLED screen when opened and a 4.6-inch cover display that activates when it is folded. "On the front it has a 32 MP selfie camera, with a 6.4" HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-V display. Per a source speaking with SamMobile, the differences between what's offered with the Galaxy Note 10 and what'll come with the Galaxy S11 are few and far between.

Samsung Galaxy A50s runs on Android 9 Pie and is powered by Exynos 9611 processor. Storage can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD. The One UI based Android 9 Pie OS comes preloaded on the device. These phones have arrived with tall aspect ratio displays, large-sized batteries and triple rear cameras. Yeah, it isn't making the leap to quad-cameras like everyone in the segment is doing just for namesake. The triple camera setup now consists of a primary 25MP camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 5MP depth sensor.

Connectivity options include Dual 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5, GPS, GLONASS, USB Type C port and 3.5mm audio jack.
