    Samsung's 2019 Galaxy A smartphone lineup expanded rather quickly, with nearly 10 devices having gone official in just four months. The company is being more patient with the Galaxy M series, having launched only three phones in the series since January. Samsung has been known to be working on a fourth Galaxy phone, the Galaxy M40, and details on its release time frame and price range have been released in a report by Outlook India.

    Galaxy M40 could sit somewhere between the Galaxy A50 and A70

    The Galaxy M40 will reportedly launch in India in early June and sport an Infinity-O display like the Galaxy S10, which would make it the first budget phone from Samsung that doesn't have a waterdrop notch. As we had exclusively revealed, the M40 will come with 128GB of storage, and a benchmark listing had revealed the presence of a Snapdragon 675 SoC, 6GB of RAM and Android 9 Pie on the device. All of these specs would make the M40 considerably more feature-packed than the Galaxy M30, and according to Outlook India, the M40's price tag may be as high as ₹25,000 (roughly $350).

    The Galaxy M30 costs ₹17,990 (roughly $250) for the top variant, so the M40's rumored price will put it in the mid-range category. In fact, it would be priced between the Galaxy A50 and the Galaxy A70, which supports the presence of specs like an Infinity-O display and the Snapdragon 675 SoC. Combined with the 5,000 mAh battery found on the Galaxy M20 and M30 and features like an ultra-wide rear camera, the M40 could be a very attractive device. However, it may also affect sales of the Galaxy A70, which we found to be an excellent media consumption powerhouse for the asking price.
