Our good friend Ryan O’Connor visits us at Cellucity to view our Samsung Note20 range. See what he has to say!
Cellucity will be releasing the Samsung Galaxy A51 with the Samsung Galaxy A71 following in the second week of February. Cellucity has revealed the specifications of the two new A-Series models coming to South Africa.
At launch, the Galaxy A51 will be sold with 4GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The Galaxy A71 will have 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage.
The Galaxy A51 will be available on contract from R399PM on a 24-month contract. Contract pricing for the Galaxy A71 will begin at R499PM x 24 OR R399PM over a 36 months contract.
The Galaxy A51 and A71 both have quad-lens rear camera systems with Depth, Main, Ultra-wide, and Macro sensors.
The Depth (5MP), Ultra-wide (12MP), and Macro (5MP) sensors are identical on both devices. On the Galaxy A51, the main sensor is 48 megapixels (MP), while the Galaxy A71 has a 64MP main sensor.
Both phones have “Infinity-O” AMOLED screens with resolutions of 1,800 x 2,400 pixels. They also have on-screen fingerprint scanners, facial recognition, and support microSD cards of up to 512GB.
Aside from the main camera sensor, the major differences between the two devices are their physical size, battery capacity, and processors.
Samsung has set the recommended retail price for each model has as:
With Huawei being caught up in the Trump trade war, we managed to miss out on getting access to the rather incredible Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
The US Trade blacklist of Huawei has prevented it from licensing Android technology from Google and gaining access to Google Services, that are used, to power Google’s apps. So as incredible as the Huawei Mate 30 hardware is, vendors around the globe haven’t been too keen to roll the dice on a device that lacked access to essential applications like Google Maps, You Tube etc…
With us heading towards Christmas season and Samsung and Apple launching their latest iconic devices, Huawei needed to bring something to the party!
Enter the Huawei Nova 5T, planned and approved before the US blacklist this photography powerhouse is still Google approved and runs Android Pie (9). Whilst the Nova range has traditionally not available in the South African market, Huawei has opted to release it here and it will be available early in November 2019.
The NOVA lineup, in the Huawei stable, sits in between the youth-focused Y-series and the more premium orientated P-series. It offers an aspirational trendsetter, a phone that is as unique as it is powerful!
First off, the stunning colours Mid-Summer Purple and Crush Blue, give a fresh new funky look, my preference being the Purple, which subtly has the Nova logo etched into the facia creating a dynamic wow appeal. It really has to be seen “in the flesh” to be appreciated.
From a tech perspective, the Nova is not all just about style and very much about brilliant photography. A rear array of quad cameras leading with 48MP main camera, Macro lens, 16MP Ultra Wide Angle lens with supporting Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help optimize scene selection, your photos will be the envy of your Instagram followers!
And if taking greater photos was not enough, the front-facing camera is a staggering 32MP and also sports AI to ensure your Selfies always have you looking your best.
Other stand out features are a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, 8GB of RAM (great for gaming apps like PUBG) and 128GB onboard memory, the Nova 5T certainly ticks all the boxes!
The Huawei Nova 5T will be priced from R599 per month on a Vodacom contract and will retail for R11999. It is certainly going to be a strong contender against the more expensive “iconic” devices when comparing its specs.
The first 2000 lucky owners in SA will also receive a Huawei MediaPad T5 tablet valued at R3999. All in all, the Huawei Nova 5T is a great choice for this summer! For more information visit www.cellucity.co.za
