Samsung also releases Galaxy A31 in the Netherlands
After the Galaxy A51, Galaxy A41 and Galaxy A21s, Samsung is now also releasing the Galaxy A31 in the Netherlands. The aircraft must nestle in a busy portfolio between the smaller A41 and the faster A51.
Galaxy A31 release in the Netherlands
Sometimes we are wrong with our reports about future Samsung phones. We already started to think that this was the case with our forecast – early February – that the Galaxy A31 will come to our country. But no, the device does.
Today Samsung announces to sell the Galaxy A31 in the Netherlands. The device had already been unveiled for other markets. The A31 has a 6.4 inch AMOLED screen with 2400 by 1080 pixels. Just like the Galaxy A41, the A31 also runs on MediaTek's Helio P65 processor, with 4GB RAM. For an indication of performance, check the Galaxy A41 benchmarks.
The Galaxy A31 has a 20 megapixel (f / 2.2) front camera in a notch. On the back are four more cameras: a 48 megapixel main camera (f / 2.0), an 8 MP wide-angle lens (f / 2.2), a 5 MP macro camera (f / 2.4), and a 5 MP depth sensor (f / 2.4). The fingerprint sensor is in the display, and is probably the same that works surprisingly well and quickly, as we concluded in our Galaxy A41 review.
One of the plus points of the A31 compared to the A41 and A51 is the large battery, with a capacity of 5000 mAh. You can quickly charge it with 15 Watt via the USB-C connection, which is next to the 3.5 mm headphone connection.
Galaxy A31 price
In the Netherlands, the Galaxy A31 appears in the version with 64GB internal storage capacity. You can buy it in black or blue for a suggested retail price of € 299. This makes it slightly more expensive than the 6.1-inch A41 (around € 250), which is largely comparable – but more compact.
The Galaxy A51 (currently just under € 300) is about the same size, has faster hardware and better cameras, but a smaller 4000 mAh battery. For a lot less money (around € 200) you can buy the Galaxy A21s, which we previewed last week. That device also has a 5000 mAh battery, but no AMOLED screen, and a lesser processor.
The Galaxy A31 will be in stores in the Netherlands from the beginning of July.
