Samsung confirms June 11 launch for the Galaxy M40 in India
Samsung India has officially confirmed the June 11 launch date for the Galaxy M40. The date was tipped by YouTuber Gaurav Chaudhary of Technical Guruji in an exclusive first-look video of the device earlier this week. The Galaxy M40 will be the fourth member of Samsung’s highly successful Galaxy M series. And just like the previous three models, it will be an online-exclusive device available via Amazon India and the Samsung eStore starting 6 PM IST on June 11.
Infinity-O display, Snapdragon 675, and more
Samsung India has just published a microsite teasing the upcoming Galaxy M40. The company has shared some images of the device, highlighting its Infinity-O display, triple rear camera setup, and the Snapdragon 6 series processor. While the company didn’t go into details about the processor, the Galaxy M40’s Geekbench benchmark has already revealed that the phone will come with the Snapdragon 675 SoC, 6GB RAM, and Android 9 Pie. And as we had exclusively revealed, there should be 128GB of internal storage.
The triple rear camera setup is placed vertically, with the sensor at the center getting a circular ring around it. There’s an LED flash just below the three cameras. The images on Samsung’s Galaxy M40 teaser microsite also confirm the presence of a capacitive fingerprint sensor on the phone. From the looks of it, the Galaxy M40 will be identical to the Galaxy A8s in appearance.
Samsung is yet to officially say anything about the pricing of the Galaxy M40. However, rumors suggest that the device will be priced at somewhere around ₹20,000 (~$290). We will have to wait and see if more details surface in the coming days ahead of the official launch.
