Out of the three smartphones, Samsung recently had a quiet launch of the Galaxy A70 on its website. However, the company did not reveal the price and availability of the smartphone. The Galaxy A40 was also released in some regions last month, and it is expected that the company would make the smartphone globally available starting today.
The most anticipated smartphone, however, is the Galaxy A80. The smartphone was speculated to be launched as the A90, but recent rumours suggest that Samsung would launch the A80 with similar specifications as the A90. The A80/A90 is expected to feature a 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1080*2400. The smartphone would not have a notch and instead would go all-screen with a truly Infinity display.
The new design makes way for a pop-up rotary camera in the A80/A90. A render video explains that the device would have a slider design with a dual-facing camera. The camera is capable of turning and becoming the front camera as well. The primary sensor would house a 48MP f/2.0 lens coupled with an 8MP f/2.4 ultra-wide sensor and a Time of Flight sensor.
For a powerful performance, the Snapdragon 7150 is slated to debut with the device paired with 6GB or 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The Snapdragon 7150 is said to be a successor of Qualcomm’s current mid-range chipset Snapdragon 710. The high-end device is rumoured to house a smaller battery of 3,700 mAh compared to the already-launched Galaxy A10, A30, A50 and Galaxy A20 with slightly bigger capacity batteries. The A80/A90 will have fast charging support of 25W and run on Android 9.0 based One UI.
The Galaxy A70 features a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, which is a name given to the display that has a u-shaped notch. … The phone has an on-screen display sensor. Under the hood, the phone has an octa-core processor and an option to choose from 6GB/8GB RAM.
The Galaxy A40 uses Samsung’s Exynos 7885 chipset, which has an octa-core CPU (2x ARM Cortex-A73 CPU cores + 6x ARM Cortex-A53 CPU cores) and ARM’s Mali-G71 MP2 GPU. There’s 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There’s a microSD card slot for storage expansion.
