It has been a while since we saw decent budget phones from Samsung but looks like the company is trying to change that with its new M and A series phones. One of those latest phones is the Samsung Galaxy A40. To learn more about this phone and the Samsung Galaxy A40 South Africa price, continue reading.
Although the Samsung Galaxy A40 is a budget phone, the display and the design will make you think otherwise. It’s a big 5.9-inch phone showing 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution, 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 437ppi of pixel density. The display is covering 85.5% of the front and the camera-sized small U-shaped notch can be easily ignored with the option to hide camera provided in the UI. Right after the Samsung Galaxy A40 release date South Africa, it can be found in three different colors: white, blue and coral and there is a slight rainbow-ish effect if you look closely. While the combination of glass and plastic on the hand feels cheap once you take it in your hand, it looks premium thanks to its vivid display and design.
Cameras in most of the Samsung mid-range phones are average and unfortunately that’s also the case in the Samsung Galaxy A40. However, like some of its expensive cousins like the Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10E, this one comes with a 5-megapixel 13mm ultrawide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. This is slightly surprising as we have mostly seen ultrawide cameras in the expensive phones so far. The primary rear camera is a 16-megapixel 26mm wide sensor with f/1.7 aperture. As for the front camera, it’s a 25-megapixel 25mm wide sensor with f/2.0 aperture which should be good enough capturing selfies every now and then. These cameras will get the job done when capturing something outdoor in well lit conditions. However, if you are mostly going to depend on your phone camera for capturing your precious moments, there is the cheaper Samsung Galaxy S9 and Xiaomi Pocophone F1 you can check out. These are currently almost in the same price range as the Samsung Galaxy A40 South Africa price.
There is nothing surprising under the hood. The Samsung Galaxy A40 is powered by a 3100mAh Li-Po battery and this phone supports fast charging 15W. Users won’t have any trouble running most of the basic applications thanks to its Exynos 7885 14nm octa-core processor paired with 4GB of RAM. Some of the other notable features include: Android 9.0 Pie operating system, microSD card slot, 64GB built-in storage, 3.5mm headphone jack, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, USB 3.1 Type-C port and fingerprint sensor.
The Samsung Galaxy A40 will be available for about R 3900 . It’s already available in some places which means the Samsung Galaxy A40 release date South Africa can be expected soon.
