South Korean smartphone giant Samsung will be launching the Galaxy A50, Galaxy A70, and Galaxy A90 by the end of 2019. Today, the existence of another device in the series has been confirmed, thanks to the Geekbench listing.
The device listed on Geekbench is the Galaxy A40 which has the codename Samsung SM-A405FN. The listing revealed the key specifications of the handset. It scored 1322 in single-core tests and 3987 in multi-core tests. The scores in single-core are higher than the scores of the Galaxy M20 but the Galaxy M20 takes the lead in the multi-core segment. The interesting point is that both the devices are powered by the same chipset.
The chipset included in the device is the Exynos 7885 chipset which is used by the brand in a couple of devices like the Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8 Plus, Galaxy A7 and the upcoming Galaxy M20. The Exynos 7885 is an octa-core processor and it is clocked at 1.59 GHz. In terms of software, the device will run on Android Pie 9.0 out of the box with Samsung flavoured UI on top.
There will be 4 GB of RAM in the handset. Other pieces of information are not known as of now but we expect it to be better than the upcoming Galaxy M20 as “A’ series is considered superior to “M” series. Some impressive camera sensors and massive battery capacity are expected on this device.
The device is expected to be unveiled along with the Galaxy A50 in Q2 of 2019. The newly unveiled Infinity Displays will also be featured on this handset and the display is expected to be AMOLED on all the devices in the A series this year. We’ll get to know more about the handset once other leaks surface online or when the brand teases the handset in various social media handles. Till then, stay tuned for updates.
