Powered by a Snapdragon 730 processor, Galaxy A71 also packs "Make for India" innovations aimed at enhancing the lives of Gen Z and millennial consumers. Coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB interna storage, Galaxy A71 is designed to enhance gaming experience with improved frame rate and stability as well as reduced power consumption with the AI-powered "Game Booster". With a Micro SD card, the memory is expandable to 512 GB. Among the "Make for India" innovations, the phone includes a feature that makes SMS come "Alive" by identifying messages that are most useful to the user and organising them neatly in the form of visual cards such as "Reminders" and "Offers". The "Useful Cards" feature helps reduce clutter in the SMS Inbox and lets consumers find useful information quickly and easily.
