We saw brands like Vivo, Oppo, Xiaomi, Huawei going on launching 5G smartphones under the flagship segment. We even saw Samsung Galaxy S10 5G the first 5G smartphone which was limited to certain markets. With 5G networks rolling out globally we saw brands like Vivo launching cheaper 5G devices now Samsung is planning to launch the cheapest 5G phone.
As per the source, Samsung is currently developing the cheapest 5G with model SM-A7160 which is the alleged Galaxy A71 with 128GB storage. With Galaxy Note 10+ 5G came with SM-N976B for the Global version so we expect the above model is for Chinese markets as the Chinese variant of Note 10 came SM-N9760.
Further, the source claims that Galaxy A71 might become the first Samsung phone to use Exynos 980. The Exynos 980 is specifically made for mid-range smartphones and comes with 5G support. Further, the Exynos 980 will also support 108MP camera support and will also have Wifi 6.
