Samsung has just launched its newest smartphones in the Philippines, the Galaxy A71 and the Note 10 Lite. These new smartphones are premium devices that offer near top-end cameras, internals, and designs, all with flagship price tags.

Galaxy A71

The Galaxy A71 is Samsung’s latest A-series smartphone, and it brings a bevy of features and premium styling, all while having a price tag that’s much more attainable than flagships.

The A71’s highlight feature is no doubt its quad rear camera setup consisting of a 64MP main shooter, a 12MP ultra-wide, a 5MP macro, and a 5MP depth sensor. As for its selfie shooter, the A71 packs a 32MP front camera. On paper, the A71’s cameras are already impressive, but it’s made even better with the inclusion of Super Steady Video mode that takes super-smooth videos; this makes the A71 a tempting buy for content creators.

Powering the A71 is a Snapdragon 730 that’s complemented by 8GB of RAM. Alongside its SoC and memory is a large 4,500mAh battery that supports 25W Super-Fast Charging.

Finally, the Galaxy A71 features a 6.7-inch Infinity-O display, similar to Samsung’s latest flagships. As always, this Samsung phone’s display is an AMOLED panel, meaning the display should be bright and have vivid colors that’s perfect for binge-watching.

Galaxy A71 Specs:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G octa-core processor
  • Adreno 618 GPU
  • 8GB RAM
  • 6.7-inch Infinity-O FHD+ Super AMOLED display
  • 128GB storage (expandable up to 512GB via microSD)
  • 64MP main + 12MP ultra-wide + 5MP macro + 5MP depth sensor rear cameras
  • 32MP front camera
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Fingerprint scanner (in-display)
  • 4500mAh battery
  • Android 10 with OneUI 2.0

 

Galaxy Note 10 Lite

Aside from the A71, Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 10 Lite, a more affordable version of Samsung’s flagship Note 10 that doesn’t skimp out on features.

Much like the Note 10, the Note 10 Lite is made for productivity as it packs an S-Pen. The Note 10 Lite’s screen is also impressive as it’s an AMOLED 6.7-inch Infinity-O display — even bigger than the Note 10’s 6.3-inch display. The Lite’s battery is also bigger at 4,500mAh (compared to the Note 10’s 3,500mAh).

For photography, the Note 10 Lite also packs a capable triple-camera setup which includes a 12MP main, a 12MP ultra-wide, and a 12MP telephoto with optical image stabilization — nearly the same shooter setup as the standard Note 10.

So what makes the Note 10 Lite, well, Lite? This new phone uses an Exynos 9810 processor, the same chip as the Galaxy Note 9. While this means that the Note 10 Lite won’t be as powerful as its non-lite counterparts, the Exynos 9810 should still be plenty capable of both productivity and gaming apps; it’s still a flagship processor after all.

Galaxy Note 10 Lite Specs:

  • Exynos 9810 octa-core processor
  • Adreno 618 GPU
  • 8GB RAM
  • 6.7-inch Infinity-O FHD+ Super AMOLED display
  • 128GB storage (expandable up to 512GB via microSD)
  • 12MP main + 12MP ultra-wide + 12MP telephoto rear cameras
  • 32MP front camera
  • 3G, LTE
  • WiFi, Bluetooth
  • Fingerprint scanner (in-display), S-Pen
  • 4500mAh battery
  • Android 10 with OneUI 2.0
