Samsung’s mid-budget Galaxy A50 has undergone rigorous camera testing at DxOMark’s lab revealing that it is on par with the LG G7 ThinQ. The Samsung Galaxy A50 in India comes under Rs 20,000 price bracket, and sports a triple-camera setup. The refreshed A series for 2019 offers range of devices from budget to premium segment. The high-end Galaxy A80 has already been launched globally and should come to India in the second half of this month.
Coming back to the Galaxy A50 camera, it includes a 25-megapixel primary sensor, a 5-megapixel secondary depth sensor and an 8-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide lens. In DxOMark testing, the camera performance score came out to be 83, which is on par with the LG G7 ThinQ and just a point or two shy of the Nokia 8 Sirocco and Apple iPhone 7 (via GSMArena).
The testing team segmented the score in different aspects, out-of-which the stills department managed 85 points, but the video was average at 79. It noted that the camera can offer great color reproduction, wide dynamic range, good exposure and quite accurate white balance. Where it lacked was in the low light focus speed and accuracy.
Recently, the Galaxy A50 received latest June security update along with new features like Slow-Mo video recording and Night mode. The update also brought the ability to scan QR codes from the camera app without Bixby Vision.
