As the latest addition to its revamped Galaxy A series, Samsung is working to launch the Galaxy A40 in global markets. Recently, a support page for the phone went live on the company's German website. And now, the Galaxy A40 has passed FCC certification, revealing its key specifications and hinting at an imminent launch. Here's everything we know so far.
Samsung Galaxy A40: At a glance
While we haven't gotten our first look at the Galaxy A40, we expect the phone to sport an Infinity U design with slim bottom chin and 3D Glasstic design on the rear - just like the recently launched Galaxy A30 and A50. Moreover, the FCC listing reveals that it will feature a 5.7-inch display and will measure 144.3mm x 69.1mm x 153mm.
For the shutterbugs and selfie lovers
Currently, we don't have any details regarding the camera setup on the Galaxy A40. However, considering it will be placed between the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50, we can expect to either see dual rear cameras or a triple sensor array. Up front, the phone should offer a single selfie camera that will be housed in the display notch.
Under the hood
According to rumors, Galaxy A40 may come with an Exynos 7904 chipset, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (expandable upto 512GB). The phone is also expected to run Android Pie-based One UI. Further, the FCC listing confirms that the A40 will support dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, and ANT+ - much like the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 models.
Pricing and availability
Considering that Galaxy A40 has passed FCC certification and its support page has gone live on Samsung's German as well as UK websites, we can expect the phone to be launched sometime soon. As for pricing, a recent report claimed that the phone will arrive in Europe with a price tag of 249 euros or roughly Rs. 20,000.
