Galaxy A70 official with 32MP cameras, super fast charging, and more


Last updated: March 26th, 2019 at 07:39 UTC+02:00

Samsung has made another Galaxy A series phone official today. The company has announced the Galaxy A70, the fourth new smartphone in Samsung’s 2019 Galaxy A lineup. The Galaxy A70 boasts a number of interesting features, including super fast charging speeds similar to the Galaxy S10 5G, 32MP rear and front cameras, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Galaxy A70 features include big display, big battery, super fast charging

The Galaxy A70 comes with a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with has a fingerprint sensor underneath (this is likely to be the same optical sensor that we saw on the Galaxy A50). That waterdrop notch holds a 32MP front-facing camera, the highest yet of any Galaxy smartphone. The primary rear camera is a 32MP sensor as well and is accompanied by an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP depth-sensing camera.

The Galaxy A70 is powered by an octa-core processor and comes with 6GB and 8GB RAM options and 128GB of internal storage. Keeping the lights on is a 4,500 mAh battery that supports 25 watt fast charging. That’s the same as the Galaxy S10 5G’s and faster than the non-5G Galaxy S10’s, and one can hope 25W charging will become standard across all new devices Samsung launches by the end of this year.

On the software front, you get Android Pie out of the box with One UI 1.1. One UI 1.1 brings features such as Digital Wellbeing and full Bixby Voice support even without a physical Bixby key. When it comes to design, the Galaxy A70 is made of what Samsung calls 3D Glasstic, which is plastic that gives off a glass-like premium vibe. Gradient colors are part of the package, with blue, black, coral, and white color options (check our Galaxy A50 review to see how stunning these can be).

More to be revealed at Galaxy A event on April 10

The Galaxy A70 is a good example of how the Korean giant is filling its mid-range smartphones with interesting new features before those features make their way to the flagships, and it could be a very good proposition if Samsung prices it right. The company isn’t giving us pricing or release date information yet, but it promises to reveal more at its Galaxy A event on April 10.
