Samsung recently launched the Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30, and Galaxy A50 smartphones. Unlike the earlier Galaxy A series devices, the newly launched devices are more aggressively priced. While the Galaxy M series is exclusive to online stores, the Galaxy A series is more targetted towards the offline segment. In the last few days, we are also seeing rumors about the Samsung Galaxy A40 smartphone. Now, the device is spotted on the Wi-Fi Alliance website with the model number SM-A405FN/DS.
From the certification page, we can confirm the device to support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4GHz and 5GHz). It will be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie based One UI out of the box. Looking at the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 smartphones, we also expect the Galaxy A40 to come with Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with Full HD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. As of now, there is no other information available about the Galaxy A40 smartphone.
Both the Galaxy A50 and Galaxy A40 comes with the same 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with Full HD+ resolution. While the Galaxy A50 comes powered by 10nm Exynos 9610 octa-core processor, the Galaxy A30 packs the Exynos 7904 octa-core processor. In terms of optics, the Galaxy A50 comes with 25MP + 8MP + 5MP triple camera setup on the rear and a single 25MP selfie camera on the front.
The Galaxy A50 is the only budget smartphone from Samsung to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. It is backed by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery and supports 15W fast charging via USB Type-C port. The base variant of the Samsung Galaxy A50 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage is priced at Rs 19,990. On the other hand, the Galaxy A40 settles with the 16MP + 5MP dual camera setup on the rear and 16MP selfie camera on the front.
Going by the naming, the Galaxy A40 should be placed between the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. It’s interesting how Samsung will differentiate the Galaxy A40 from the Galaxy A series smartphones. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
