What you need to know
- Samsung has announced the U.S. availability of the Galaxy A71 5G.
- From June 19, buyers will be able to purchase it from T-Mobile, Sprint, and Samsung's online store.
- The A71 will come to AT&T, Verizon, and unlocked customers later this summer.
Samsung is set to debut the Galaxy A71 5G in the U.S this month. It's one of the company's best mid-rangers so far, coming with a large 6.7-inch near bezel-less FHD+ AMOLED display, a 4,5000 mAh battery with fast charging, and a quad-camera set-up (just don't stress the macro camera too much.) It's a mid-ranger, so there's no glass and metal sandwich here, instead, we're getting what Samsung calls a "glasstic" design. It still looks nice and feels lightweight, it's just made of faux-glass plastic rather than glass.
Reviewing the Galaxy A71, Android Central's Harish Jonnalagadda said:
Granted, this model isn't shipping with the Snapdragon 730 but with the much more superior Snapdragon 765 that's graced affordable flagships like the Nokia 8.3 and LG Velvet. If 5G isn't a terribly huge draw to you (at least in the short term), you could pick up one of Samsung's internationally aimed 4G equipped models.
For everyone else, the A71 5G hits T-Mobile, Sprint, and Samsung.com from June 19 while it will be made available to Verizon, AT&T, and unlocked buyers later in the summer.
[Edit: An earlier iteration of this article listed the processor as the Exynos 980, the U.S. A71 will ship with the Snapdragon 765G. Android Central regrets the error.]
