Popular smartphone brands like Samsung and Huawei at times restrict their launches only to China or the USA while ditching other regions where their devices are popular. The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G edition, which was originally said to be exclusive to U.S. and China, is now being rumored to be made available in multiple markets.
The concept of 5G is still a futuristic dream for many countries because mobile phone carriers are not willing to make the upgrade so quickly without market penetration. However, that didn’t stop flagship phones from integrating the new bandwidth into the devices and the Samsung Galaxy S20 series, along with other models, will be the first of many early adopters.
Bringing the 5G-Enabled Phone to Multiple Markets
In terms of hardware specifications and performance, the Galaxy A series is almost on par with the Galaxy S series from Samsung with minor changes. They are usually priced lower with innovative features and sometimes experimental add-ons like the flip camera. The upcoming Galaxy A71 is identified by the model number SM-A716B.
The manufacturer uses the alphabet U and N for A71 models, which will be sold with 5G support in the United States and in China. The addition of a new alphabet B indicates that they are probably going to launch in different regions because it is the identification used for phones that are sold in Europe, New Zealand and Australia.
Besides, the fact that the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G edition was made available in different regions and going by the same route, the Galaxy A71 5G will also be sold so as to give consumers more options when they purchase their next smartphone.
Evan Blass Leaks its Design
With a cryptic post that demands users to find the model of the phone, Evan Blass, the popular leakster on Twitter who goes by the name EVLeaks, has revealed the possible design of the Galaxy A71. The design is quite similar to their recent models with the tiny punch-hole camera in the middle combined with an all-screen display.
The curved display has gone, making the Samsung Galaxy phones more durable and less prone to damage even if it accidentally slips off your hand. It is going to be a couple of weeks before we can confirm the availability of the A71 and whether it will find its way to more regions apart from the US and China. If it does get launched, pricing will play a huge role in convincing buyers to adopt 5G technology in its early stages.
