Samsung has launched three new Galaxy A series devices so far and it has a few more up its sleeve. One of them is the Galaxy A40. We have been hearing reports about it for a few months now and it appears that the launch may not be far off.
The first purported renders of the Galaxy A40 have now surfaced online. The device seen here is similar in terms of looks to the other devices in this series such as the Galaxy A30. For starters, it has the same waterdrop style notch which Samsung brands as Infinity-U. The chin appears to be smaller than it is on the Galaxy A50. We thought in our Galaxy A50 review that the chin could have been smaller on that device and looks like Samsung is going to make amends with this device.
Galaxy A40 renders have surfaced
According to reports, the Galaxy A40 will likely feature a 5.7-inch display. It may also have an Exynos 7885 processor with 4GB of RAM as suggested by a recent benchmark listing. These renders show that contrary to reports, the Galaxy A40 may only get a dual camera system at the back instead of a triple camera setup.
There's also a fingerprint sensor at the rear. It will run Android 9 Pie out of the box like the other handsets in this series. A 4,000mAh battery might complete the package. Samsung is expected to release the handset in markets like Germany, France, Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom and more. The Galaxy A40 may be affordably priced, around 250 euro by some estimates.
The company sent out a press release today confirming “A Galaxy Event” for April 10. It hasn't said which devices will be unveiled at the event. There's a good chance that we will be seeing the new Galaxy A handsets next month.
