Samsung Galaxy A41 goes official with IP68 rating & Helio P65

Samsung launched a new smartphone under the Galaxy ‘A’ series today, the Samsung Galaxy A41. The phone debuted in Japan only so it hasn’t launched in markets like India yet.  The design is somewhat similar to the what we saw in the CAD renders, but the rear is different. Some interesting features of the device are the IP68 rating, a triple camera setup & Helio P65 SOC.

The Samsung Galaxy A41 comes with an Infinity-U display on the front & a triple camera setup on the rear. Unlike this year’s Samsung devices, there isn’t a big rectangular camera module for the triple cameras. This is weird since even the CAD renders showed a rectangular camera module for the Galaxy A41.

This could also mean that the Galaxy A41 for markets outside Japan might feature a different design & most probably no IP68 rating, something that the Japanese variant has.

Talking about the specs, there is a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED panel with Full-HD+ resolution. The fingerprint scanner is placed under the display & the notch has a 25 Megapixel selfie shooter in it. Under the hood, there is MediaTek Helio P65 SOC, 4GB RAM & 64GB storage. The battery underneath is a 3,500mAh unit & the device supports 15W charging.

Talking about the cameras, there is a triple camera setup on the rear that includes a primary 48 Megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture, a secondary 8 Megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, and a third 5 Megapixel depth sensor. Android 10 runs out of the box with OneUI 2.0 on top.

The Galaxy A41 comes in three colours – Blue, White, and Black. There is no word on the pricing for the Japanese market, but the device will be available to buy in June. There is no information on availability outside the Japanese market.
