Samsung Galaxy M40 launches in India on June 11

After a successful run with the first three smartphones of the new Galaxy M series, Samsung is all set to introduce the fourth member. The Galaxy M40 was rumored to be launching in India in early June, and we finally have a concrete date. YouTuber Gaurav Chaudhary of Technical Guruji has published a first-look video of the Galaxy M40 revealing some exclusive details about the phone, including the launch date.

The Galaxy M40 is the first Galaxy M smartphone to feature an Infinity-O display. It sports a cutout for the selfie camera on the top left corner of the display, similar to that of the Galaxy A8s. Also, it will be the first device in the series to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The Snapdragon 675 SoC is paired with the Adreno 612 GPU, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone will come with Android 9 Pie out of the box.

The triple rear camera setup of the device is said to see significant improvements over the one found in the Galaxy M30 (review). And contrary to some of the rumors, the Galaxy M40 gets a capacitive fingerprint sensor and not an in-display optical fingerprint sensor.

The Galaxy M40 is expected to be priced somewhere around ₹20,000 (~$290). The Galaxy M30 costs ₹17,990 (~$250) for the 6GB+128GB model, so the M40’s rumored price would make it a very attractive proposition. June 11 is just a little over two weeks away, so it won’t be long before we get confirmed information on pricing and more details on the phone’s specs.
