We saw some leaked renders of the device last month, but it's official now – Samsung has unveiled its new Galaxy A71 mid-ranger, sporting a 6.7-inch Infinity-O Super AMOLED display (just like the Galaxy Note 10) and a domino-style rear-mounted quad camera, as reported by SamMobile (opens in new tab).
The flagship camera-sporting Galaxy A71 was quietly confirmed alongside Samsung's other new mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy A51 (opens in new tab), at a launch event in Vietnam late last week.
Both the Galaxy A71 and A51 will be available in Prism Crush Black, Prism Silver, Prism Pink and Prism Blue. You can check out the A71 in each color option below.
