The design of the Samsung Galaxy A11 is correct for its range
Talking about the input range on Android phones is knowing that the most important thing is the final price of the product. For this reason, manufacturers decide to use more basic designs in terms of construction materials.
In the case of the Galaxy A11 this is true, because its back is made of plastic. This is a very inexpensive material, but also very resistant, and is what is generally seen at these levels. Nothing surprising in this regard, although the variety of colors is suitable for any taste.
Moving to the visual distribution of the cameras, we can tell you that Samsung played very well. The three rear cameras are in a vertical position and take up very little space. Meanwhile, the front camera joins the 2020 canons by being located on the screen, through a perforation.
The processor of the Galaxy A11 is a mystery, and its final performance is also
curiously Samsung has not given all the details of the chip than use this mobile. However, it did announce that it will be an eight-core SoC running at 1.8 GHz, and that it will be new. With these data you can not do too much, but surely Samsung will not disappoint if it wants to sell well.
What the manufacturer unveiled is RAM and internal storage. The Galaxy A11 hit the market with two RAM configurations, one 2GB and one 3GB, while the internal memory will remain at 32GB. In both cases, the A11 has space for you to expand the storage with a microSD of up to 512GB.
The Galaxy A11 welcomes you to the triple camera in the low range
One of the most striking things about this device is that Samsung makes the jump to the triple camera in the low range with L. This is something totally new, and even with the Galaxy A10s the company did not dare to do that. The chosen sensor? A wide angle that greatly enhances the photographic range for the end user.
With this novelty, the Samsung Galaxy A11 hits first with a 13 MP main camera and f / 1.8 aperture. Below this is the 5 MP wide-angle sensor with f / 2.4 aperture, and it closes with the 2 MP and f / 2.2 depth sensor. A very good lineup if the price matches.
In the case of the selfie camera, you will find an 8 MP sensor with an f / 2.0 lens, nothing out of the ordinary. However, what stands out is its location, since the front camera arrives embedded in the screen of the Galaxy A11.
The battery of the Galaxy A11 promises, and it is accompanied by a screen that will help you a lot
The Galaxy A11 arrives with a 4000 mAh battery, an important step compared to the 3400 mAh of its predecessor. In addition, with this figure Samsung decides to forcefully get into the fight for the low-end, since many manufacturers have also taken care of the battery for this year. Is there more? Of course, since the A11 feature 15W fast charge.
Best of all, the new Android from Samsung surely has a very good autonomy. Not only because of the battery capacity, but because its 6.4-inch Infinity-O panel with HD + resolution sure to help.
As you should know, a lower resolution requires fewer processor resources, and therefore less power. They are a perfect pair, since in this price range users are not interested in high resolutions.
Price and availability of the Samsung Galaxy A11
The Galaxy A11 hit the market in four colors different: black, white, red and light blue. Also, it will come with two RAM capacities, 2 and 3GB specifically. So see two versions on the market at launch.
Until now Samsung has not revealed the date to reach stores espaolas, but sure to be soon. Thus, it has not revealed the official starting price either, but some rumors point to a starting price close to 125 euros.
