The Samsung Galaxy A70 is now official: Triple rear cameras, 4500 mAh battery, 32 MP selfie shooter
A few days ago, Samsung confirmed that its Galaxy A series would be a direct replacement for the old Galaxy J series. This means that devices with the "A" moniker are now the company's mid-range offerings. At an event today, the South Korean company unveiled a number of new devices in the Galaxy A line, one of which is the Galaxy A70.
The A70 features a 6.7-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display. It's an Infinity-U display, which is just Samsung's fancy way of saying it sports a teardrop notch. The notch houses a 32 MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture. That looks to be the same sensor seen on the new Huawei P30 Pro. There's a fingerprint reader baked into the display.
At the back of the A70 is a triple camera setup. There's a main 32 MP sensor with f/1.7 aperture, an 8 MP ultra-wide angle one with f/2.2 aperture and a 123-degree field of view, and a 5 MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture.
Other specs include an unspecified octa-core SoC with two cores clocked at 2.0 GHz and the other six at 1.7 GHz. We believe that to be the Snapdragon 665 that was launched this week. There's 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage as standard equipment. That storage is also expandable to 512 GB by way of an SD card. Speaking of which, the A70 has three slots, which could mean it has a dedicated SD card slot.
There's a 4500 mAh battery supplying the unit with juice, with a Type-C port delivering 25 W of fast charge. The A70 runs on Android Pie out of the box.
The A70 will be available starting April 25 and will be sold in options of Black, Blue, Coral, and White.
