Samsung launched the Galaxy A71 in December 2019. Now, it appears that the Korean tech giant is gearing towards the launch of a 5G variant of the phone. In fact, there were earlier reports that the Galaxy A71 5G would use the Exynos 980 chipset and have 128GB storage.
The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G is possibly coming to the United States, according to reports. SamMobile has reported that Samsung is working on releasing two variants of the Galaxy A71. The carrier version goes by the model number SM-A716U while the unlocked version bears SM-A716U1.
The Samsung Galaxy A71 5G would be Samsung’s second 5G phone in the Galaxy A-series, following the Galaxy A90 5G. It will also reportedly be the first smartphone from the company to sport the Exynos 980 SoC, the same chip found in the Vivo X30 series. This chip is based on an 8nm process and uses two Cortex A77 cores plus six Cortex A55 cores.
There is no word yet on when the Samsung Galaxy A71 5G will be released. However, we know that it will be interesting to see a 5G phone in Samsung’s mid-range segment.
