In addition, this smartphone supports the work of two SIM cards, here you are, and please, the first reason for buying this model (or any other dual-smartphone from the catalog).
In 2019 this new model works out of the box running the Android operating system 9 Pie. But in the market of android-smartphones an important factor when buying a new device is the possibility of updating it to a fresh version of the OS. So Samsung Galaxy A30 can be updated to version 10, therefore, we believe that it can be added to the candidates for purchase.
And also it is worth mentioning that the manufacturer did not implement support for 5G networks in Samsung Galaxy A30. Therefore, if this is an actual requirement for a smartphone for you today, we advise you to choose any 5G smartphone from this list of models.
Screen, body and battery
Super AMOLED edge to edge touchscreen with a diagonal 6.4″ mounted on the front panel Samsung Galaxy A30, thickness 7.7 mm.
The battery in Samsung Galaxy A30 is installed on 4 000 mAh. It can be said that by today′s standards, such a volume is a very good indicator, of course there are models with even more volume, but they will probably be more expensive.
In addition to the described features of the body of this smartphone, we will add an important detail. To increase the screen area on the front panel, the producer added a drop-like notch in the screen to fit in a selfie camera and several additional sensors.
Main camera and selfie camera
A few words about the cameras that have Samsung Galaxy A30. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (dual camera smartphones): 16 MP Wide + 5 MP UltraWide. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate her 4 out of 5.
The frontcamera is also in Samsung Galaxy A30. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 16 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.
Processor and Internal Memory
The speed of the smartphone affects not only the optimized software (the newer Android, the better), but also the characteristics of the hardware: the processor and the amount of RAM. Samsung Galaxy A30 has 8-core Exynos 7904. You can select the RAM 3 GB or version 4 GB.
