Responding to the needs of European customers, Samsung has launched its new Galaxy A20e and the Galaxy A40 smartphones to the European markets. Both the devices are meant to sharing the identical specifications of the current Galaxy A devices but in a much smaller form factor.

The other Galaxy device that had been launched by Samsung in the Europen region is the Galaxy A40 smartphone. Earlier reports suggested the certification of the Galaxy A40 smartphone and the same device finally goes official. Unlike the A20e, the Galaxy A40 features a 5.9-inch Full HD+ Infinity U Super AMOLED display. SImilar to the Galaxy A70 and A50 models, the Galaxy A40 also features in 3D glass build design.
Under the hood, the Galaxy A40 is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7885 processor, followed by 4/6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. It also supports microSD expansion of up to 512GB. As for the cameras, the Galaxy A40 also features dual rear cameras comprising of a 16MP primary sensor with f/1.7 aperture and a 5MP secondary sensor with an f/2.2 aperture for wide-angle shots. The front of the device features a 25MP selfie camera as well.
