    We have seen so many new smartphone releases from Samsung mobile this year in different series. The company launched smartphones in the Galaxy M-series, A-series, and S-series, but none of them is as compact as the latest Galaxy A40 in the A-series lineup. The Galaxy A40 as a mid-ranger has a Super AMOLED display and an ultra wide-angle camera as the major selling points.

    The smartphone is affordable and can comfortably serve as a perfect alternative to the Galaxy S10e. Apart from that, the smartphone comes with a glasstic design Infinity-U display and dual camera setup. The phone hosts an in-house Exynos 7885 chip that can stand tall with the chipset other competitors like Qualcomm is offering. Considering the compact nature of the smartphone, the 3,100mAh battery will surely go a long way in terms of power usage when fully charged. The smartphone also comes with a 15W fast charging technology.

    Since the Android smartphone has a compact build, the display measures 5.9-inch that delivers 2340 x 1080 pixels in resolution. As we know, the Galaxy A40 features a dual camera setup on the rear, which includes a 16MP (f/1.7) main sensor and a 5MP (f/2.2) depth sensor. Interestingly, the front hosts a single 25MP (f/2.0) selfie shooter.

    The Samsung Galaxy A40 runs Android 9 Pie, based on Octa-core chipset and a $GB of RAM for fast processing. The internal storage is at 64GB and can be expanded up to 512GB via microSD card.

    On the release date and price, the phone is expected to be released on May 15, but no idea on the expected price. We are sure to keep you updated as soon we have more information in regards to that.
