Samsung unleashes the Galaxy M40 on the Indian market
The Galaxy M40 is a device that is helping Samsung to redefine the term 'mid-range' in 2019. It has been released into its first target market (India) today (June 11, 2019). The M40 has a 6.3-inch full-HD+ Infinity-O Display (which is Samsung for 'punch-hole selfie camera'). This panel can also stream HD content, as the phone it is attached to has a Widevine L1 certification.
Otherwise, the Galaxy M40 comes in just 1 conformation: a 6/128GB SKU that can be expanded via microSD card besides. It will be available in 2 gradient shades: Seawater and Midnight Blue. The Galaxy M40 also brings triple rear cameras to the table. They are a 32MP main shooter, augmented with an 8MP wide-angle sensor and a 5MP one for "Live Focus". However, the M40 is also saddled with the 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 SoC.
The Galaxy M40 can be bought outright for a price of about US$288. However, it is also reportedly available via the carriers Airtel, Reliance Jio and Vodafone under various plans. Its full price pits it against other devices such as the Pocophone F1, Nokia 7.1 and Realme 3 Pro. As this phone is also now part of the Android Enterprise program, it may perform well against its competition, as a work device at least.
