The Android mobile market does not stop not even with the Coronavirus on the streets, and that is why the manufacturers continue to introduce new phones. Motorola recently introduced its Moto E6s to the global market, while Xiaomi unveiled its Redmi Note 9 Pro.
For his part, Samsung It is the manufacturer that has launched the most mobile phones in recent months, and now a new record is written in its favor. South Koreans just announced the Galaxy A41, a mobile with which they hope to tame the mid-range.
All the characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy A41, the new mid-range of Samsung
With the launch of the Galaxy A41 Samsung gives a facelift to the A40 from last year, and generally improves it in all aspects. With this new mobile Samsung reinforces its ranks to the mid-range battle, where I already had other devices like the Galaxy M31 and the Galaxy A51. These are its characteristics:

The design of the Galaxy A41 refines what was seen in its predecessor
In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy A41 does not innovate much compared to other mobile phones from last year. However, when compared to the A40 some changes can be found. The first is that There are no longer two cameras in the back, but three, which are joined in a single vertical module with the LED flash.
In addition, you will not find the fingerprint reader on the back as in the A40, since for the A41 it has moved under the screen. However, the back is still made of plastic, as are the edges, but the Galaxy A41 wins IP68 protection against dust and water.
In the front, Galaxy A41 reduces side edges seen on the A40, but the top and bottom ones seem to expand. In addition, it is striking that Samsung opts for a notch to locate the camera, when it seemed that they would not do it again.
The Galaxy A41 has a screen according to the range, and the same happens with the performance
Moving to the screen, the Galaxy A41 equips a 6.1-inch Super AMOLED panel, a little more than 5.9 on the A40. Full HD + resolution repeats, albeit with a few extra pixels, and the aspect ratio goes to 20: 9. According to Samsung, the Galaxy A41's screen occupies 89% of the front.
For its part, some internal components of the A41 are also renewed, while others repeat. The processor of this device is a MediaTek Helio P65 Eight Core, which is accompanied by a Mali-G52 MC2 GPU to process graphics.
Something that traces its predecessor is the capacity of RAM and internal storage, repeating the formula of a single model with 4GB + 64GB configuration. However, the latter can be expanded through a microSD card of up to 512 GB.
The cameras of the Galaxy A41 undergo a great change compared to the A40
If there is a component that gains a lot in this new model, it is the cameras. As we already mentioned, Samsung goes from two to three in the back, but also greatly improves photographic sensors, that already in the A40 they knew little.
The main sensor is capable of capturing images at 48 MP, and features an f / 2.0 aperture. Meanwhile, the support sensors are composed of an ultra wide-angle of 8 MP and f / 2.2, and a depth ToF sensor of 5 MP and f / 2.4. For his part, the front camera for selfies keeps 25 MP and f / 2.2. Good enough to get started in the world of mobile photography on a budget.
Price and availability of the Samsung Galaxy A41
The new Galaxy A41 equip a 3500 mAh battery with a simple fast charge of 15W, and arrive in blue, black and white. Also, it will come from the factory with Android 10, under Samsung's One UI 2 customization layer. About the price, it is unknown until now, but as soon as we know it we will update.
The Galaxy A41 was unveiled in Japan, and is expected to enter the Japanese market this spring. If of the global version nothing is known yet, but taking into account that it is Samsung, we will probably be close to seeing it in stores.
