The Samsung Galaxy A50 is one of the A series devices the company launched in the country this year. You can get the Galaxy A50 in Kenya starting from Ksh 25,800 for the 4GB variant. The phone is available in a number of retail stores and online through Jumia. Depending on where you get yours from, the price may be higher or lower than what I have indicated above.
At its price, the Samsung Galaxy A50 is competing with some equally impressive smartphones including the Huawei Y9 Prime 2019, the OPPO F11, Huawei P30 Lite and even the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7. All these are very good smartphones and some of them were even launched after the A50 so they tend to have new hardware and even software. This is not an easy category to be in as there are so many options available to choose from as you can see.
