The Samsung Galaxy A50 uses a triple rear camera set up of a 25MP f/1.7, a 8MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle lens, and a 5MP f/2.4 depth sensor with an LED flash. While the front facing camera is a 25MP f/2.0 with screen flash.

The camera app is the latest version found in the new One UI with modes like Photo, Video, Pro, Live Focus, Slow motion, Hyperlapse and Panorama.

In the Live Focus mode, you can toggle up to 7 levels of blur while the selfie beautifation has up to 8 levels of color and skin tone.

The Pro Mode is basic with only options to change ISO, white balance and exposure compensation.

So far, it is looking to be a versatile phone for smartphone photography.

Take a look at our first shots with it.

Quick thoughts

From our initial impressions of the images, the results are decently sharp with good color reproduction and acceptable contrast. But with some more affordable phones like the RealMe 3 can produce similar results at a friendlier price point.

What impressed us is the ability of the standard and ultra wide rear cameras to have consistent exposures with the standard lens having more detail because of the 25MP sensor against the 8MP ultra-wide. We did notice that the white balance between the standard and wide are not consistent with each other. The standard lens tends to have the more accurate White Balance. We hope Samsung can tweak this in a firmware update.

We were disappointed with the basic Pro mode where you can only change the ISO, exposure compensation and white balance.

The Live Focus mode has significantly improved with its edge detection but there are still room for improvement as it missed some hair fibers. Otherwise, it is pretty good!

The camera game of the A50 is strong, but so is the competition.

Stay tuned in our full review!
