Samsung will be bringing its latest mid-range mobile devices, the Galaxy A31 and Galaxy A11, to Singapore later this month. Characteristic of the Galaxy A series is the handpicking of some flagship-tier features from their Galaxy S smartphones, and packing them together at a more affordable price. This time around, the Samsung Galaxy A31 and Galaxy A11 both come with immersive displays and multi-purpose rear camera systems.

The Samsung Galaxy A31 features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ (2,400 x 1,080 pixels resolution), Super AMOLED "Infinity-U" display, while the Samsung Galaxy A11 sports a 6.4-inch HD+ (1,560 x 720 pixels resolution), TFT "Infinity-O" display. Both Infinity-U and Infinity-O are proprietary descriptors of Samsung's near bezel-less look for the Galaxy A31 and A11.

The Galaxy A31 has four rear cameras - a 48-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, a 5-megapixel depth camera, and a 5-megapixel Macro camera - alongside some software features. Complementing it is a 5,000mAh battery and 15W Fast Charging compatibility.

The Galaxy A11, being the more affordable Galaxy A of these two, features a triple rear camera system, which includes a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide camera, and a 2-megapixel depth camera. It has a 4,000mAh battery and the same 15W Fast Charging capabilities.

Samsung will be making the Galaxy A31 available on 9 May 2020 at S$348, while the Galaxy A11 will come to Singapore on 23 May 2020 with a retail price of S$198. Both phones will be available at the Samsung Online Store, selected telecommunication partners, as well as major consumer electronic and IT stores.
