The Galaxy A series is new to the US, and is part of Samsun's strategy to bulk up its budget and midrange market at a far lower cost than its premium Galaxy phones. For example, the Galaxy S20 starts at $1,000 and the foldable Galaxy Z Flip sells for $1,380. The world's largest phone-maker announced the Galaxy A51 alongside five other Galaxy A phones, with the most entry-level of the bunch starting at $110. Samsung will also sell a
version of the A51 later this summer.
