Samsung Galaxy A71 and A51 cameras

No, that particular feature is not given in the phone but there is still a video steady mode that takes advantage of the Gyro EIS and helps in stabilizing the videos captured, and that is the 1080p videos, not 4k.

Does the Galaxy A71 have any water resistance?

Samsung has not mentioned about any water resistance or waterproofing at the event, and even the specs don’t mention it, so just like the other phones in the series, while it might be able to handle some splashes, we would just take the company’s word for it and not risk it as there is no warranty for water ingress.

What is the fast charging provided with the Galaxy A71?

The Samsung Galaxy A71 comes with the 25-watt fast charging support, which is actually better than the 15W support that the Galaxy A51 is coming with, but to charge a large capacity battery with 4500 mAh capacity, it surely needs the faster charging.

Does the A71 come with Samsung Pay support?

Yes, there is support for the Samsung Pay feature for making easy payments using a tap. It is not the Samsung Pay Mini where you would have only stored the card information and used the UPI, but it is the regular payment method where you just tap on the terminal and it takes the payment with the entering of the PIN.

Can we take full 64MP photos with the phone?

Yes, this is a 64-megapixel Samsung sensor named the GW1, and while it uses the technology to come up with the best 16MP captures, you can anytime toggle the option to turn on the 64MP capture mode and take the high-resolution pictures in case you wanted to take some landscape photos to keep them for prints in the future.
