Today’s best deals include Samsung’s Galaxy A50 at $250, plus notable deals on storage and iOttie’s popular smartphone mounts. Hit the jump for all that and more in the latest 9to5Toys Lunch Break.

Samsung Galaxy A50 is $250

Best Buy offers the unlocked Samsung Galaxy A50 64GB Android Smartphone for $250. Typically fetching $350, right now you’ll find it for $300 at Amazon and B&H, with today’s offer saving you up to 28% and matching our previous mention for the all-time low.

Samsung’s Galaxy A50 sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a built-in fingerprint sensor and notch housing a 25MP camera. Around back you’ll find a triple-camera array comprised of the main 25MP, 123-degree 8MP, and 5MP depth sensors.

USB-C storage deals abound

Amazon is currently offering the Samsung 500GB T5 Portable USB-C Solid State Drive for $80. Typically fetching $110, today’s offer saves you 28%, beats our previous mention by $10, and matches the all-time low. Samsung’s portable SSD is based on V-NAND storage and offers 540MB/s transfer speed thanks to the USB-C connectivity. Everything comes wrapped in an aluminum enclosure that’s not only compact, but is also shock-resistant.

iOttie smartphone mounts from $16

We’ve spotted a number of iOttie smartphone car mounts on sale over at Amazon today. Headlining is the iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Mount for $18. As a comparison, you’d typically pay $25 here with today’s deal being $2 less than our previous mention.

The One Touch 4 is arguably iOttie’s most popular mount with a fully adjustable design that’s made to fit just about any modern smartphone. A rotational grip allows you to navigate and control media in both landscape or portrait modes.

Samsung 10000mAh Qi Charger Power Bank

Amazon offers the Samsung 2-in-1 Portable 10000mAh Power Bank and 7.5W Qi Charger in silver for $30. Normally fetching $60, it recently dropped to $48 and is now down the extra 38%. Today’s offer beats our previous mention by $8 and marks a new Amazon all-time low.

This 2-in-1 portable charger is the perfect way to keep your Galaxy handset and other devices powered up while away from a wall outlet. It features a 10000mAh capacity, enough to refuel most modern smartphones at least two times over. Plus, a 7.5W Qi charging pad is built- in alongside 15W USB-C PD and 2.4A USB ports. 

iDevices Smart Wall Outlet hits $70

Amazon is offering the iDevices HomeKit-ready Smart Wall Outlet for $70. That’s $20+ off recent pricing there and beats the lowest 2020 Amazon offer we have tracked by $8.

This sleek wall outlet works with Assistant, Alexa, and HomeKit, allowing you to choose the best option to suit your needs. IFTTT compatibility is also in tow, paving the way for even more smart home control options and integrations. This outlet does not require a hub, freeing up one of your router’s treasured Ethernet ports and also reducing clutter.
