Samsung Galaxy A40, data sheet of characteristics and price

26 mayo, 2021

Another day, another Samsung. After the Samsung Galaxy A10, A20, A30, A50 and A70 are official, it’s time to fill in the gaps. The first of them corresponds to the Samsung Galaxy A40, which was in a way in limbo since various websites leaked it almost completely, including Amazon.

The fact is that, while it was for sale on some websites, officially Samsung I had not presented it in any region … until now. It does so now in Russia and Ukraine, although we suspect that it will be sold in other places such as Spain. Let’s see what the umpteenth mid-range of the new batch offers us.

This is how Samsung makes money: the secret is on the IPHONE

The little one


Coincidences of life, yesterday the largest Galaxy A of all to date, the Samsung Galaxy A70, was made official, and today it is his turn to the smallestAlthough we might think that it should have been the Samsung Galaxy A10, it turns out that it has ended up being the Samsung Galaxy A40. The logic will be somewhere, although for the moment it is elusive.

Is a 5.9 inch screen, Super AMOLED and that maintains the Full HD + resolution, crowned by an Infinity-U drop-shaped notch and the same general design as the rest of the Samsung Galaxy A terminals. This smaller diagonal directly affects the size, which is “only “144.3 x 69 mm, a compact mobile by today’s standards.

Technically, it can be said that it is pretty much a Samsung Galaxy A30 that has shrunk in size, and this has affected some of its technical characteristics, such as the battery, which has also shrunk to 3,100 mAh. Other specifications have increased, such as RAM, which now starts at 4 GB while the Galaxy A30 has a version with 3 GB of RAM.

Samsung Galaxy A30, first impressions: the mid-range that no longer wants to look high

Double camera and the footprints, behind


In the photographic realm, there is some copy-paste from the Samsung Galaxy A30 on the rear camera. Is a dual 16 + 5 MP configuration identical to that of the A30, but in the selfie camera there is a surprise: it seems to have been borrowed from the top model, the Galaxy A50, and is 25 megapixel.

With the A series Samsung is playing with components as if they were Lego tiles, putting and removing from one model to another

What it doesn’t borrow from the Samsung Galaxy A50 is the fingerprint reader, which is still located at the back, making it clear where the cut-off point is between when there is a budget to enter it on the screen or not.

The processor is an Exynos 7904 with two cores at 1.8 Ghz and another six at 1.6 Ghz. It is the same as the Samsung Galaxy A30, and it shows us that South Koreans have more or less played with the components as if they were Lego tiles, putting and removing between the different models to create infinite variations with few differences between them.

Versions, prices Samsung Galaxy A40


The Samsung Galaxy A40 is only officially mentioned on the Samsung website in Russia and Ukraine, although considering that it is for sale on Amazon for 249 euros, with shipping for April 10, it is likely that it will be sold in Spain, but that we do not have confirmation of it until the event scheduled for that same day.

It is a single version with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, available in the same four colors as the rest of the range, namely blue, black, coral and white, all of them with a “3D Glasstic” body and an iridescence effect when the light hits it.
