Samsung Galaxy A30

Samsung Galaxy A40 launched with 25MP selfie camera

Samsung is in no mood to rest on their laurels. The Korean giant is keeping up the intensity by augmenting its Galaxy A series at a frenetic pace. Samsung’s latest offering goes official with the launch of Galaxy A40, the latest addition in the mid-range price segment. Official unveiling of the product will follow the announcement, and is scheduled to happen at an event on 10th April.

The Galaxy A40 presents a 5.9-inch AMOLED Infinity-U design with a notch up top. The design carries a full-HD display with 2280×1080 pixel resolution. A plastic back, a headphone jack, and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor complete the design features.

The device is powered by an in-house octa-core Exynos 7885 processor coupled with ARM Mali G71 GPU. It has 4GB of RAM with a 64GB internal storage, which is expandable up to 512GB via microSD slot. The smartphone runs on Android 9.0 Pie, with the latest One UI on top. Connectivity features include 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The device is fuelled by a 3,100mAh battery with fast charging support.

Galaxy A40 has a dual rear camera setup with a primary 16-megapixel sensor coupled with a 5-megapixel sensor, with regular and ultra-wide sensors. The phone prides itself over a 25-megapixel front camera with f/2.0 aperture for high end selfies and video calling. Samsung Galaxy A40 is available in colours White, Blue, Coral and Black. Pre-Orders taken by e-tailers show the price in Euros at €249, which would come to around Rs 20,000. The device is thus expected to fill the vacant price space between company’s existing India launches – Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50.
