Within a week after launching the Galaxy A40 with a 25MP selfie camera, Samsung has now announced a new entrant to its A-series smartphone lineup with the launch of the Galaxy A70 in South Korea. The Galaxy A70 comes as an upgrade over the current Galaxy A-series phones with a 32MP sensor powered triple camera setup, large battery, in-display fingerprint and a 20:9 cinematic view display.
As was revealed in the specs yesterday, the Samsung Galaxy A70 comes with a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels, an aspect ratio of 20:9 and a U-shaped notch at the top. There’s an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front which works with Samsung Pass and lets you sign in to apps with just your fingerprint.
The device is powered by a Snapdragon 670 octa-core chipset and is coupled with 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB of storage. The Galaxy A70 is fuelled by a 4,500mAh battery which supports 25W fast charging, similar to the one on the Galaxy S10 5G.
For optics, the A70 features a 32MP (f/1.7 aperture) primary camera coupled with an 8MP (f/2.2 aperture, 123-degree field-of-view) ultra-wide camera and a 5MP (f/2.2 aperture) depth-sensing camera. There’s another 32MP f/2.0 sensor hidden on the notch on the front which will be available for selfies and video calling.
The Galaxy A70 runs on Samsung One UI based on Android 9 Pie with Night Mode, Samsung Pay, Knox and Samsung Pass. The device will be available in Black, White, Coral and Blue colours with a “3D Glasstic” finish at the back. Price and availability of the device are yet unknown but we can expect it to be announced during the Galaxy event which is scheduled for April 10.
