Support page confirms approaching Samsung Galaxy A40 launch in Europe

Samsung has now announced the Galaxy A10, A30 and A50 in several countries, and shown of the latter two during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. But more models in the A series are nearing release, with the Galaxy A40 possibly leading the next wave of A series devices.

Galaxy A40 coming to Europe

On Samsung’s German website, the first Galaxy A40 support page confirms our earlier reports about the device coming to, amongst others, that country. Despite the fact its existence has been known for quite some time, not many details about the A40 have so far emerged. Aside from a handful of basic specifications – Exynos 7885, 4GB RAM, Android 9 – we do not know much about its display size, nor about the cameras, fingerprint sensor or battery.

One thing that the few known tidbits do make clear, is that the Galaxy A40 will sit just a step below the A50 in Samsung’s new mid-range line-up. Therefore, we do expect it to come with a European price tag that is even friendlier than that of the Galaxy A50 which will initially sell for €349.

Release-wise, we expect the Galaxy A40 to hit stores across Europe sometime this spring, possibly together with a few more phones in the same series. After all, we know the Galaxy A20 and A70, too, are on their way to various markets, as well as a Galaxy A90. It is safe to say Samsung is serious about its offensive to (re)conquer the globe’s affordable smartphone markets.

For now, do not forget to check out our hands-on preview of the already-launched Galaxy A30 and A50.

I honestly don’t understand why Samsung has to release more than three A series phones with basically the same specs this year. 4 S phones, 5 A phones so far but apparently up to 10 and then Note 10. instead of releasing so many unnecessary A phones, why not a flat screen variant of Note 10?

They’re two totally different and unrelated market segments, the premium and low to mid range. Absolutely no relationship between the two. A big choice for low to mid level at lots of different price points is important. A flat screen Note might be a good idea for some, but we have 8 engineers including myself using Note9 devices and our own in house apps, no problems with the curve. However, we will have a big problem with the hole cutout. We will likely skip Note10 if it’s there and I assume it will be. It will be a first for… Read more »

This amount of phones is completely unnecessary and confusing no matter the market segment.
I own Note 9 and I’m fine with the ages but I would welcome a 6.7-7 inch flat screen Note 10 and definitely with NO hole punch or the even worse and hideous pill shaped cutout.

Not related, but just an update for you guys. I just got an update on Bixby Wake up, followed by Bixby Voice and then Bixby Service and I now have the option to remap a double press of the Bixby button to an app of choice. I put WhatsApp on mine. Same as on S10. I have an Exynos version Note9 in Turkey, UK English version. Haven’t checked my wife’s S9 plus, but I assume it’s getting it too

Yeah, I have just seen it on my S9. That’s great news but I will continue using bxActions because I have even more actions and Bixby will never get activated.

Ok I love Bixby, have always used it. Best hands free phone control in the business. I’m always using it while working on the computer. Of course it doesn’t suit everyone 👍
