Galaxy M40 set to go on sale in India at 12 PM today
The Galaxy M40, which was announced last week, is set to go sale on Amazon and Samsung.com at 12 PM today in India. Like the previous devices in the lineup, the M40 will be available via flash sales – a trick Samsung borrowed from Xiaomi’s playbook. The online-exclusive device should be available through an open sale in a few weeks from now if you don’t want to deal with flash sales.
Recommending the Galaxy M40 is not an easy decision as Samsung has made some strange choices for the device. While it comes with a faster Snapdragon chipset and an Infinity-O display, it sports a much smaller battery than its cheaper siblings and lacks a headphone jack. Even the display, despite its modern design, can be a downgrade for some users since it’s an LCD panel. Factoring all this, the Galaxy A50 looks like a better device overall with far fewer compromises.
Nevertheless, if you want to buy the Galaxy M40, it will be available in a single 6GB/128GB variant and is priced at ₹19,990 (~$290), which is ₹1,500 more than the base variant of the Galaxy A50. You can get an additional INR 1,500 discount on Amazon by using ICICI credit and debit cards. Color options include Midnight Blue and Seawater Blue with gradient effects on the back.
