The Samsung Galaxy M40 is available in India as of today (June 11, 2019). It offers a full-HD+ screen with a punch-hole camera, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage for INR19,990 ($US288). The M40 also features triple rear cameras, 15-watt charging and a 3500mAh battery.

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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
