Samsung Galaxy M40 spotted online, may come with Android Pie OS

Galaxy Note9

Samsung's increased focus on the "A" series which offers phones in the Rs 10,000 to Rs 50,000 segment, shows that the company is ready to give its Chinese competitors a tough fight in the coming days. Samsung seems to be calling the new notch-less display simply as New Infinity Display, which joins other monikers such as Infinity-V Display of the Galaxy M series and Infinity-O Display. The manufacturer likes to try out new things on these handsets to test the water and decide whether to take them to the flagship models.

Our first, very quick impressions of the Samsung Galaxy Fold are positive.

It is one of the best small Android phones you can buy with the latest specs, impressive camera capabilities, and innovative AI features. On the front, the device has an 8MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture.

At present, there are three Galaxy M smartphones - Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30. Its camera configuration consists of a main shooter with 48 megapixels, an ultra-wide lens with 8 megapixels, and a 3D-depth sensor. It comes with the same 5-inch qHD (540 x 960 pixels) TFT display as seen on the Galaxy J2 Core. It has a 3,700mAh battery with 25W fast charging.

The phone is available in Black, Gold or White and is now being shipped with 8GB RAM and 128GB of memory. There are only 16GB storage and 1GB RAM inside the Galaxy Core A2, but users will be able to further expand the internal memory up to 256GB via microSD.

Samsung's great One UI software based on Android 9 Pie is present too and was quick and responsive in our time with the phone.

I have no idea what Samsung's motivation is for attempting to lock Galaxy Fold sales to those two, but I can tell you that the phone should have no problem connecting to Verizon or Sprint's networks, unless Samsung blocks it from doing so.

The Galaxy S10 5G comes with separate antennas to switch from 5G to 4G in areas where the 5G signal isn't strong enough. Do you like the new rotating camera pop-up design?
