Apart from launching the S-series flagship phones at the beginning of the year 2020, Samsung is also expected to new A-series phones. Recent reports have leaked vital information on the upcoming Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 phones. A fresh report on Sammobile hints at the existence of the Galaxy A81 phone. Interestingly, the Galaxy A81 is expected to arrive with support for S Pen stylus.
The report claims that the newly spotted SM-AN815F model number suggests that it could be an offbeat device. The letter that follows ‘SM’ in the model number usually denotes to the series a phone will belong to. For instance, S-series phones have SM-Gxxxx model number, Note-lineup smartphones have SM-Nxxxx model number and A-series phones have SM-Axxxx model number. However, the SM-AN815F seems to be a unique device.
The SM-AN815F model number could be belong to the upcoming Galaxy A81. However, the presence of A and N in the model number hints that the phone could be coming with a S Pen stylus. Recent reports have revealed that the upcoming Galaxy A91 that has a model number of SM-A915F and Galaxy S10 Lite with SM-G770F could be same device even though they belong to different series. Hence, there is a possibility that the Galaxy A81 could be a rebranded version of the Galaxy Note 10 Lite for some markets.
Apart from Note series, no other Samsung phones have featured the S Pen stylus. If the Galaxy A81 really arrives with S Pen, it will be a good attempt from Samsung on bringing stylus support on a cheaper as Note lineup flagship phones have always carried hefty price tags.
Nothing much is known about the Galaxy A81 expect for the rumor that it will be equipped with 128 GB of native storage. Hopefully, more details on the Galaxy A81 phone in the coming weeks.
The swivel camera system of the predecessor Galaxy A80 phone was most striking feature. It remains to be seen whether the Galaxy A81 will retain it. Leaked information that appeared few months ago had revealed it will be equipped with quad rear cameras featuring a 64-megapixel main lens, a 16-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 12-megapixel sensor with 2x or 5x optical zoom and a 3D ToF sensor. The Galaxy A80 was made official in April this year. Hence, there is a possibility that the Galaxy A81 could be made official around the same time next year.
