The Samsung Galaxy A40 gets a dual camera, the fingerprint scanner on the back and will cost around 250 euros. The device will be announced on April 10 next to the Galaxy A90.
“First Samsung Galaxy A40 renders appeared”
That is what the generally reliable Roland Quandt says. The tech journalist is releasing the first renders of the Galaxy A40 today and is also releasing a few specifications. On the outside it looks like the recently released A50, but with lesser specifications.
It has a small notch in the form of a water drop on the top of the 5.7-inch screen. This includes the selfie camera and some sensors. Unlike the A50, the Galaxy A40 has no fingerprint scanner in the screen. You have to place your finger on the button on the back to unlock the device.
The camera has also been cut. Where the A50 has a triple camera, the A40 has to do ‘only’ with two sensors. The resolutions are not yet known, but the device is controlled by an Exynos 7885 processor with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. This is the same processor as in the Galaxy A8 (2018).
Furthermore, Quandt says that the Galaxy A40 has a hefty 4000 mAh battery. Charging is via USB-c. Upon arrival, the device runs on Android 9.0 (Pie), with Samsung’s own OneUI skin over it. The Galaxy A40 would also be released in the Netherlands for a price of around 250 euros. This is 100 euros cheaper than the A50. You can then choose from the colors blue, white and black.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 will be presented during a special Galaxy event on 10 April. According to rumors, this will be the first device of the Koreans with a complete front-filling screen. The camera, which is normally concealed in the notch, would become expendable.
