Samsung Galaxy A71 has officially launched in Nepal. Alongside the smaller sibling Galaxy A51, the Galaxy A71 is now available in mobile shops all over Nepal. The Samsung Galaxy A71 is the newest semi-flagship smartphone from the South Korean conglomerate offering some flagship grade-specs at a midrange price.
With the newest ‘A’ series, it is clear that the company is trying to push it towards the younger crowd. The promo video for it, Christ! It is an annoyingly catchy 48-second clip of a distorted voice that goes “awesome screen, awesome camera, long-lasting battery life“. Here, check it out for yourself. The video also shines the light on what Samsung wants to focus on its new Galaxy A71 smartphone.

Galaxy A71 Overview
Design & Display
It looks like the Galaxy A71 alongside other new-gen ‘A’ series marks the new design trend of Samsung smartphones, at least for 2020. There’s a notch-less approach to the front camera, while the back includes an ‘L’-shaped camera arrangement. More on that later. It has a similar glass back with diamond-cut patterns that reflect differently based on how you look at it. The slim form-factor that the A71 endorses in its tall build should be appealing to many.
I don’t want to talk more about the display because at this point I’m tired of praising Samsung for their panels. The Galaxy A71 has a tall 6.7-inch “Infinity-O” Super AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Though it shares the same screen size to its predecessors, the A71 manages to achieve a slightly higher 87.2% screen-to-body ratio thanks to the punch-hole cutout. It should be noted that the cutout is a little bigger than the one on A51.
Moving along, Samsung is also pushing for a quad-camera setup in 2020. The Galaxy A51 shares the same 64MP main sensor and the 5MP depth sensor with the recent Galaxy A70s (Read review). However, the wide-angle camera has been bumped into a bigger 12MP lens. We also saw Samsung embedding a better wide-angle lens into the Galaxy A51. Additionally, there’s a 5MP macro shooter which I gotta admit serves a very niche segment of photography enthusiasts.
And all these lenses are arranged in an ‘L’-shaped arrangement inside a rectangular modular. Coming to the front, there’s the same 32MP selfie camera as its predecessors.

Performance & Memory
While the earlier generation of the Galaxy A70 series packed the same Snapdragon 675 chipset, Samsung has gone with a far better Snapdragon 730 on the Galaxy A71. This is a pretty big deal since we have been repeatedly complaining about how Samsung’s newer-generation of mid-range devices don’t come with a chipset-upgrade. But is it too late now? The 730 has already been replaced by Snapdragon 765 / 765G. The Realme X2 that’s available exclusively via daraz comes with the better Snapdragon 730G chipset at a ridiculously low price. So, trouble’s not over yet for Samsung.
You get either 6 or 8GB of RAM on the Galaxy A71 and the version that’s available in Nepal comes with 8GB RAM. Storage-wise, the phone comes with 128GB internally, which can be expanded using a micro SD card.
Despite the slim design and build, the Galaxy A71 still packs the same 4500 mAh battery like in its predecessors. Kudos, Samsung! Despite the sizeable battery, it could run out quickly upon prolonged continuous usage since the phone has a tall FHD+ display. However, Samsung ensures that the phone’s battery life will not be disappointing. Also, you get 25W quick charging which should fill up the phone’s juice much faster.
