Awesome Camera! Samsung Galaxy A71 launches

With 64MP main camera

Published

Samsung hit the jackpot with their Galaxy A series in 2019. They want to continue to grab more of the midrange market by introducing the next batch of the A series starting with the Samsung Galaxy A71.

In case the intense social media push hasn’t caught you yet, the Galaxy A71 along with the Galaxy A51, are two phones that are heavily promoted by Samsung’s endorsers — K-Pop girl group BLACKPINK.

The campaign has so far been pushing the phones’ display, cameras, and battery. The tune that BLACKPINK members dance too is catchy without being annoying but I can’t say the same for the song’s lyrics that just keeps saying “Awesome screen, awesome camera, long lasting battery life.”

So let’s dive into the Galaxy A71 with all of that in mind.

Awesome screen

The Samsung Galaxy A71 sports a 6.7-inch FHD Super Amoled display. It’s also sporting the Infinity-O display — the same one found on the Galaxy Note 10+ and Galaxy Note 10 lite. In fact, design-wise, the new A series looks a lot like both Galaxy Lite phones. Inside that O is a 32MP front-facing camera.

Elsewhere in the phone is either a 6GB or 8GB of RAM with 128GB of internal storage that’s expandable up through a microSD card slot.

Awesome camera

Samsung’s finally using its ISOCELL Bright sensor with the Galaxy A71’s main camera sporting a 64MP main shooter. It’s flanked by three other cameras: a 5MP depth sensor, another 5MP macro camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide angle lens.

Long lasting battery life

The phone has a 4500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging. Helping manage all that power is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC.

If its predecessor is any indication, the Galaxy A71 should be another promising option in the higher midrange category. On top of all that, you also get Samsung staples like Bixby, Samsung Health, and Samsung Knox.

Pricing and availability

The Samsung Galaxy A71 will come in three colors: Prism Crush Black, Silver, and Blue. Pricing and availability to follow.

NieR Replicant

Square Enix came into Tokyo Game Show 2020 with a big announcement in mind. Even though it was an online show, the developers behind Final Fantasy and Marvel’s Avengers have something brewing up for the year. This time, they’ve decided to focus on a market-exclusive title —  NieR Replicant — ready for a more worldwide stage.

To kickoff the Tokyo Game Show, they’ve announced the arrival of NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139. If you haven’t heard of NieR Replicant before, that’s totally reasonable because this was a Japan-exclusive release. Essentially, Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 is a remaster of the original game released in 2010 for Japanese players.

NieR Replicant is the most anticipated sequel to the post-apocalyptic RPG, NieR Automata. This prequel delves into a darker world that sees you going on a quest for a cure. Also, joining you in this quest is Grimoire Weiss in search for the “Sealed Verses.” For Automata players, you may be familiar with it as he appears as downloadable content for the game.

The prequel will be available on April 22, 2021 for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Meanwhile, its PC release on Steam will be on April 24, 2021.
