Samsung launches Galaxy A30s with Cassper Nyovest

Samsung has unveiled the new Galaxy A30s smartphone, introducing AI optimised gaming for better battery life and an on-screen fingerprint sensor – and a strong tie-in with South Africa’s biggest music star, Cassper Nyovest.



Samsung says the handset is made for those who want to capture and share their experiences instantaneously, promising to deliver live streaming performances for what Samsung calls “the era of live”.

“Smartphones are a vital part of people’s lives, connecting them, allowing them to share their experiences and engage with the world,” said Justin Hume, Director: Integrated Mobility at Samsung South Africa. “As the way people use smartphones continues to evolve, we strive to constantly innovate, bringing people the best possible mobile experience. The new Galaxy A30s are a bold step in delivering next-level performance to essential everyday features.”

And there is a surprise added extra: around a hundred wake-up messages recorded by Nyovest specifically for the alarm clock function of the smartphone.

The new Galaxy A30s features a striking new design, including a geometric pattern and futuristic holographic effect on the back. It is available in four new colours, Prism Crush Black, Prism Crush White, Prism Crush Green and Prism Crush Violet. 

Paired with a long-lasting 4,000mAh battery and fast charging capability, along with an AI-based Game Booster, it offers better mobile gaming experiences compared to previous generations.

The device comes with triple rear cameras: an improved 25MP main camera, an 8MP Ultra-Wide camera and a new 5MP depth camera. With Live Focus on the 5MP depth camera, users can now apply professional-quality bokeh effects and create more dynamic portraits, letting users capture the mood of the moment as they experience it. Smart camera tools, including Intelligent Flaw Detector and Scene Optimiser, make snapping sharp, in-focus pictures more likely than before.

It also features an on-screen fingerprint scanner for a seamless secure unlock experience without featuring a cutout on the phone’s body.

The Galaxy A30s connects to the Galaxy ecosystem and services like Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and Knox.
