The Samsung Galaxy A31 has arrived to add a bit of class to the affordable smartphone market. Compared to its M31 cousin, it’s more slender thanks to the taller aspect ratio of its 6.4″ Super AMOLED screen. Also, the phone has an in-display fingerprint reader instead of a rear-mounted one.
Samsung Galaxy A31 Official Known Specs
• 6.4 inches Super AMOLED display
• Mediatek Helio P65 (not confirmed)
• 48MP quad rear camera
• 20MP selfie camera
• 5000mAh battery
• 4/6GB of RAM

The Galaxy A31 sports a 6.4 inches Super AMOLED FHD+ display with 1080×2400 pixels.
The screen has 1080p+ resolution and an U-shaped notch on its top edge to house the selfie camera. The 20:9 aspect ratio makes the A-series phone 2mm narrower than the M31, it’s also a fraction thinner and lighter.
The quad camera on the rear looks and functions similarly to the M-phone. It’s made up of a 48MP main sensor (f/2.0 aperture, 0.8µm pixels), 8MP ultrawide-angle cam (123°), a 5MP dedicated macro shooter and a 5MP depth sensor.
It has a 20MP selfie camera fitted in the U notch.
Samsung didn’t give much details about the chipset for the Samsung Galaxy A31, but leaked benchmarks point to a MediaTek Helio P65 chipset. It has two Cortex-A75 CPU cores, which are newer and more powerful than the four A73 cores inside the Galaxy M31. Even so, the performance battle between the two will be close.
Anyway, the phone comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB storage as standard with a 6/128GB option for those who want more. The microSD card slot can be used to add up to 512GB more to the storage pool.
