It doesn’t have NFC support or Samsung Pay support that is present in the A50s, but there is Samsung Pay mini.

The phone has a 16-megapixel camera on the front with Samsung SK3P8SP sensor with f/2.0 aperture.

It has dedicated dual SIM and microSD slots on the left, arranged in a single tray. On the right there is a power button and the volume rockers is present above it. On the bottom there is a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C Port, primary microphone and a loudspeaker grill. There is a secondary microphone at the top.

You can also see the fingerprint sensor on the back which is quick to unlock the phone.

It has a gradient finish on the back, but it attracts fingerprints easily. Wish the company had bundled a cover for the phone since this is a huge problem in the M series phones. It is 8.8mm thick, mainly due to the huge battery, but the phone weighs 188 grams, even though it packs a huge 6000mAh battery.

It starts at Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version and will be available from and Samsung India online store starting from September 29th.
