Samsung Galaxy A31 was officially launched in India on Thursday at a starting price of Rs 21,999. The Galaxy A31 is an important phone for Samsung, especially after its other Galaxy A phone, aka Galaxy A51 has seemingly become a best-seller in India, according to multiple reports. Samsung would want to cash in on the Galaxy A51’s success, and the Galaxy A31 seems pretty well equipped in terms of specs and features, to handle that. The Galaxy A31 is not a successor to the Galaxy A51 though, just to be clear.

The Galaxy A31 follows on the heels of the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A30s, and has a design that’s very reminiscent of both these phones.

On the front, the Galaxy A31 has a 6.4-inch 1080p+ or FHD+ AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner for biometric authentication. The phone was a waterdrop-style or as Samsung likes to call it, an Infinity-U notch, that also houses a 20MP selfie camera. Under the hood, the Galaxy A31 has an 8-core MediaTek 6768 processor which is paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128G storage which is also expandable by up to 512GB via a micro-SD card.

The dual-SIM phone runs Android 10-based One UI and is powered by a massive 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support via USB Type-C.

The Galaxy A31 has a quad camera setup on the rear. There’s a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra wide-angle camera, and two 5MP cameras, one for depth and another for macros.

Samsung says the Galaxy A31 comes with a few “Make for India” Alive Intelligence features such as useful cards that helps reduce clutter in the SMS inbox, multilingual typing, smart crop, and more.
