While plans are underway for the launch of the Galaxy M series later this month, the Korean firm is also reportedly working on a new A series that with which the firm is expected to take on its rival brands in domestic markets.
Reports say there are a total of nine Galaxy A series that are expected to arrive later this year, and a few of them including the Galaxy A50 are already clearing some requisite pre-release hurdles. After it cleared W-Fi Alliance and surfaced on the Geekbench database, the Galaxy A50 has now secured the Bluetooth SIG approval.

Unlike the variant approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance, the Samsung Galaxy A50 variant cleared by Bluetooth body has the SM-A505FN model and that could largely be the single SIM variant of the upcoming device.
Interestingly the Bluetooth body hasn’t revealed much about the device other than it support for Bluetooth 5, however, the Geekbench listing of the device had earlier revealed that the device will come packed with Samsung’s Exynos 7 9610 chipsets, an octa-core processor with four Cortex-A73 cores and four A53s. There will reportedly be two storage variants of the A50- a 4GB/64GB version, and 4GB/128GB.
Other rumored specs include a 24MP sensor, Android 9.0 Pie, an optical in-display fingerprint sensor, while it probably won’t go official until toward the end of the first quarter.
