What you need to know

  • Samsung is rolling out a new update for the mid-range Galaxy A51 and A71 phones.
  • The update brings several camera features from the Galaxy S20 series to the two phones, including a Pro mode.
  • With the Pro mode, Galaxy A51 and A71 owners can now take control over things like the shutter speed, ISO, and exposure levels.

Samsung rolled out the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy A51 in May this year. Unlike Samsung’s 2019 flagship phones, however, the mid-range phone did not receive any of the new camera features from the Galaxy S20 series. Surprisingly, Samsung is now rolling out a new update for the Galaxy A51 with Galaxy S20 camera features such as Pro mode.

According to the folks at SamMobile, the update arrives as version A515FXXU3BTF4. Apart from the Pro mode, it also brings other new camera features such as Night Hyperlapse, Single Take, and My Filters.

Along with the new software update for the Galaxy A51, Samsung has also released the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy A71. In addition to all the Galaxy S20 camera features, the One UI 2.1 update for the Galaxy A71 also brings other new features such as Quick Share, Music Share, an updated Gallery app, and a new Samsung keyboard.

While the latest updates for the Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 aren’t widely available right now, we expect them to become available in most regions by the end of this month.

Google Pixel 4a pre-orders go live with August 20 availability

Google’s newest phone, the Pixel 4a, is finally available for pre-order. Having blown by its expected May launch, the handset arrives with a wallet-friendly $350 price tag.When much of the fanfare and advertising for phones tends to center around flagships and devices approaching $1,000, Google’s latest is a fraction of the price. Nevertheless, it still has more than enough hardware and modern software to satisfy the needs of the masses.At just $350, the Pixel 4a runs Android 10 and largely features the same camera experience that’s found in the Pixel 4. Moreover, it also has a headphone jack and a bigger battery than the standard model.Android 105.81-inch FHD+ displayQualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor6GB RAM128GB storage12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera8-megapixel wide-angle camera3140mAh battery3.5mm audio jackAs to why the Pixel 4a is less than half the price of the Pixel 4, there are plenty of reasons. It’s just up to the buyer to determine whether it’s worth spending the extra money.With that said, the Pixel 4a does not have wireless charging, nor does it have the soft-touch glass back and water resistant protection. Instead it has a polycarbonate body to keep price down.AvailabilityThe Pixel 4a is available for pre-order in the US at Google Store and on Google Fi where it can be purchased unlocked at just $350. It will be more widely available to customers on August 20 through the Google Store, Best Buy, Amazon, and more. Additionally, US carriers will offer the phone, including Google Fi, US Cellular, and Verizon.Customers who purchase the Pixel 4a receive three month free trials of YouTube Premium, Google Play Pass and Google One.Interestingly enough, the Google Pixel 4a appears to be offered in black only through Google’s online store. Other colors expected in the lead-up to announcement included white and blue. Perhaps various carriers and retailers will have different options.

Google begins dropping details on Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5

Today might be the official arrival of the Google Pixel 4a, but that doesn’t mean Google isn’t already looking to the horizon. Indeed, Google is ready to share details about the next few models in the pipeline.According to Google, the Pixel 4a (5G) and the Pixel 5 will arrive “this fall” and both will feature 5G connectivity. Moreover, Google is already sharing its expected price for the former, putting it at just $499.Whether the true difference between the standard 4a and the 5G-ready version is 5G support remains unclear.Google often debuts its flagship Pixel phones in October, and that would definitely fit in thethis fall” timeline. However, with the ongoing pandemic, and the fact that the Pixel 4a arrived nearly three months later than expected, it’s hard to say for sure.As Google tells us both the Pixel 4a (5G) and Pixel 5 will be available in the US, Canada, the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Japan, Taiwan, and Australia.If you’re interested in learning more about either of these phones, you can sign up to receive updates.
