A big, brilliant screen
Immerse yourself in the large 6.4-inch Infinity-U Display of Galaxy A31. Unlike Other A-series Samsung phones like the Galaxy A11 this one comes with an Infinity-U super vivid FHD+ Super AMOLED. The reason we refer to it as super vivid is because of that 1080 x 2400 pixels resolution packed on a 6.4 inch display panel. And that ~411 ppi density supports our claim.
It is also a great display because Infinity Display is a near bezel-less, full-frontal glass, edge-to-edge screen. Whereas the actual viewable area is less due to the rounded corners, measured diagonally, the screen size is actually 6.4 inches. Yes the display of the A31 has 16M colors.
Slim on the outside – Design
This is how the saying goes. Samsung Galaxy A31 is slim on the outside, and big on the inside. We will talk about the latter later. What about the design? First, color availability may vary by country or carrier. But the colors available are Black, Blue, Red and White. This smartphone weighs about 185 grams and has 159.3 x 73.1 x 8.6 mm dimension. Its back panel has that L-shaped camera module we see on the 40,000 shillings Galaxy A71. We also see Samsung branding on the back panel and that is about it.
A clean finish always carries the day. It is on the front you will find the fingerprint scanner. How do you ask? Samsung Samsung Galaxy A31 has an under the display fingerprint scanner. That chin though. Generally it is a phone that comes in a geometric design with a glossy finish. Fits perfectly in the hand.
Big on the inside – Performance
Here are the memory and storage options of Samsung Galaxy A31: 64 or 128GB + 4GB RAM and 128GB + 6GB RAM. That makes three.

Perspective – Quad Camera System
In Samsung’s own words, “Go ultra high-res with a 48MP Main Cam for crisp, clear photos day and night,” [Source: website]. With it you get an 123° 8MP Ultra Wide camera that captures more of the view. The upgraded 5MP Macro camera is for highly refined close-up shots while 48MP Main Cam will come in handy with those beautiful portrait shots. It delivers multiple Live Focus effects.
But think about it one more time; you are getting a whopping 48MP Main Camera. Strange though why it cannot shoot 4K videos. Yes it is [email protected] max here. Wait, there is more! Samsung Galaxy A31 has a 20 MP, f/2.2, (wide) selfie camera. It is the kind that produces attention-grabbing selfies because of its high-resolution photos.
Battery and more
