Use the floatcombination environment.

\useMPlibrary[dum]

\starttext

\startplacefigure[location=nonumber]
	\startfloatcombination%[width=\textwidth,distance=0pt]
		\startplacefigure[title={Some description of A}]
			%\externalfigure[A][width=4cm]
			\framed[frame=off,offset=none,width=.5\textwidth]{\externalfigure[A][width=4cm]}
		\stopplacefigure
		\startplacefigure[title={Some description of B}]
			%\externalfigure[B][width=4cm]
			\framed[frame=off,offset=none,width=.5\textwidth]{\externalfigure[B][width=4cm]}
		\stopplacefigure
	\stopfloatcombination
\stopplacefigure

\stoptext
