The new, simplified, and consolidated Galaxy A series boast of a number of devices, and from reports, the Korean firm is now set to introduce the next generation of the A-series devices for 2020.
While reports had suggested the new Galaxy A series comprising chiefly of the Galaxy A51, and A71 will launch in early 2020, indications have now emerged that lineup might be refreshed earlier than we thought.
As per a new video teaser by Samsung’s Vietnamese division, the firm will be holding a Galaxy product launch event on December 12 in Vietnam. The teaser does not offer any hint on what specific products would be released at the conference, however, there are insinuations that the previously leaked Samsung Galaxy A51, Galaxy A71 and, perhaps, other models that form part of the 2020 A series will be announced.
Other than that, the video also offers a glimpse of a phone’s front panel revealing a centered a Galaxy Note 10-like punch-hole selfie camera. This, more or less confirms that the device in question will get a higher screen to body ratio.
