Price and Availability
Samsung is yet to announce the price and availability details for the Galaxy A31. It will be available in four color variants, namely Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush Blue, Prism Crush Red, Prism Crush White.
the quad camera specs are actually quite decent and i like the fact that Samsung has finally decided on releasing devices with decent processors again !
they have done a good job with the specs esp with the battery and the quad camera as well as the MT P65 chipset – could turn out to be a decent mid-range smartphone !
The choice of Mediatek processor is really commendable and I like its smart camera setup too.
