Samsung announced plans to bring new A-series smartphones to the United States. The lineup included Galaxy A01, A11, A21, A51 5G and A71 5G. Now the launch of the Galaxy A71 seems to be near as it has been approved via the Bluetooth SIG. There is also news regarding the network operator and the chipset that powers the phone.
Thanks to a report from XDA, a database has listed that the upcoming Galaxy A models will support Verizon's online services. The Bluetooth SIG certification suggests that Samsung will launch a custom version of the Galaxy A71 with Verizon. In the list we see that the phone has the code name "samsung_a71xq". Here A71 is the model in which "x" stands for "5G" and "q" apparently represents "Qualcomm".
As you know, Samsung launches phones with different chipsets depending on the region. Samsung's own Exynos are used in Asia, while phones with Snapdragon chipsets are launched in the United States. Therefore, there are two solid indications that Samsung will use a Snapdragon chipset for the Galaxy A71 5G. But the question is which one?
Well, it seems almost impossible for Samsung to use the flagship Snapdragon 865 on upper mid-range devices. However, you can use Snapdragon 700 series chipsets. Snapdragon 765 and 765G are the two 5G mid-range chipsets offered by Qualcomm. And if we're not mistaken, you may see a Snapdragon 765 Galaxy A71 5G in the U.S. There is also a third chipset called Snapdragon 768G that started silently and has a slight improvement over the 765 chipsets.
Specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G
Apart from the processor, the smartphone will have identical specifications to the global version of the Galaxy A71. A 6.7-inch FHD + Super AMOLED display is no less than beauty to enjoy multimedia. There is a quad camera setup that consists of 64-megapixel main and
12-megapixel ultra-wide as well as two 5-megapixel depth and macro sensors. There is a 32 megapixel front shooter in a notch that is centered.
We receive a 4,500 mAh battery that can be charged with 25 W super fast charge. The device is paired with either 6 or 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage. Of course you need more space as there is a 64 megapixel shooter. We have a microSD slot that supports up to 1 TB of external storage. We have a built-in fingerprint scanner for biometrics. Finally, the color options include Prism Cube Black, Prism Cube Sliver and Prism Cube Blue.
According to XDA reports, the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is expected to be launched in the United States in late June or early July. If the price is right, the device will be a great mid-range 5G offering from Samsung. What do you make of it? Let us know in the comments section.
