Samsung is all set to introduce yet another smartphone in the mid-range segment. This time the South Korean based company is working on an A-series device dubbed Galaxy A40. For those who’re unaware, the smartphone has recently received certifications from Wi-Fi Alliance and the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).
Samsung Galaxy A40 has now made an appearance on the FCC listing revealing bits of information and suggesting that the device might go official soon.
Samsung Galaxy A40 Appears on FCC, with 5.7-inch Display
As per the FCC listing, the smartphone comes with a model number SM-A405FN having a measurement of 144.3 x 69.1mm and an overall diagonal of 153.0mm. The FCC listing also reveals that the device will come with a 5.7-inch display which is quite strange since the entry-level Galaxy A10 sports a massive 6.2-inch display. Earlier we were expecting a screen size of 6.4-inch on Galaxy A40 but it seems like the company is targetting users who prefer comfortable single-handed usage.
Unfortunately, the FCC listing doesn’t reveal any key specifications except revealing some connectivity like Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, and ANT+. Although some previous rumours suggest an Exynos 7904 octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. In terms of software, the phone will arrive with Android Pie-based One UI out-of-the-box.
Samsung Galaxy A40: Launch, Availability
The Galaxy A40 is expected to hit the European market soon with a price tag of EUR 249 (roughly INR 20,100). Earlier this week, the very same device was also spotted on Samsung’s UK website. Since the device has bagged the FCC certification, we can expect this phone to go official very soon.
Although there are no confirmed details, we’re still expecting this device to hit the Indian shore soon after the official Europian launch.
