After Samsung Galaxy M10, the Samsung Galaxy M20 and the Samsung Galaxy M30 received largely positive reviews in the Indian market, the company is planning to launch another device in its Galaxy M-series. The new Samsung Galaxy M40 was already announced by the company after the launch of the Samsung Galaxy M30 and now it has been confirmed that it will be coming to the India on June 11. Samsung has revealed a teaser of its upcoming device – Samsung Galaxy M40 – on its official website and Amazon India. Since it is listed on Amazon.in, there is a chance it will be sold exclusively on Amazon itself. Some highlights of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M40 is that it will feature an Infinity-O or punch-hole display (similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10-series) and it will be the first in its series. It will be powered by the Snapdragon 600-series SoC which is also a first in its series as the earlier Samsung Galaxy M-series device are powered by company’s own Exynos CPUs.
The Samsung Galaxy M40 is still days away and it is already listed on Amazon India which hints that Amazon will be the exclusive seller of the device. The Samsung Galaxy M40 will also sport a triple-rear camera at the back and it will be the fourth smartphone in the Samsung Galaxy M-series. Before the launch of the device, the South Korean technology giant has shared some of the images of the Samsung Galaxy M40 on its official website and Amazon India as a teaser. The teaser images show a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner at the back along with a single LED flash beside the camera setup.
Samsung Galaxy M40 price and specifications (expected)
Although the official specifications of the device are currently not out but according to the leaks the Samsung Galaxy M40 will sport a Super AMOLED with a punch-hole camera cutout. It will reportedly be powered by the Snapdragon 675 SoC and will pack a huge 5,000mAh battery. There will reportedly be 6GB of RAM on the device paired with 128GB of internal storage. The device will reportedly run Android 9 Pie skinned with One UI and will have Wi-Fi 802.11ac for connectivity.
Now, talking about the pricing of the Samsung Galaxy M40, we expect it to hold a price tag of around Rs 25,000. Earlier devices from the Samsung Galaxy M-series have been priced in the low to mid-range segment and that is one of their major selling points. If the company does place it in the 20K price range then it will be competing against the like of Oppo F11 Pro, Vivo V11 Pro, Poco F1 and Nokia 8.1.
