The Galaxy A70 is now available for purchase in India. Priced at ₹28,990 (roughly $420), the Galaxy A70 is being sold through online and offline stores, including the Samsung Opera House in Bangalore. Only Flipkart and Samsung’s official store seem to be selling the device online at the moment, but it should be available in most offline markets in the country. As usual, Samsung has a couple of offers going to bring down the effective price, including a ₹2,000 ($30) cashback for those purchasing the phone with an ICICI Bank credit card.
The Galaxy A70 isn’t as offbeat as the Galaxy A80 with its rotating cameras, but it does offer plenty of impressive features. It has a 32MP primary camera on the back along with an 8MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP depth sensor for bokeh pictures. The selfie camera is also a 32-megapixel sensor. There’s also 25W super fast charging support, same as the Galaxy S10 5G, for the 4,500 mAh battery inside, making the A70 quite unique in Samsung’s mid-range and budget smartphone lineups.
The Galaxy A70 has a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display that is powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC. Sitting under that display is an optical fingerprint sensor just like the one on the Galaxy A50, and the Snapdragon 675 is accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage (expandable up to 512GB). The Galaxy A70 runs Android Pie with One UI 1.1, with features such as Bixby Routines, Bixby Voice (via the power button), and Digital Wellbeing. The A70 also gets full Samsung Pay support, which is becoming a rare sight on Samsung’s mid-range phones these days.
Color options for the Galaxy A70 include white, black, and blue, with a gradient touch like the Galaxy A50. We currently have the white one in our possession and will have a review of the device up on SamMobile in the next couple of days.
