The Samsung Galaxy A40 in the news

Samsung Galaxy A40 Product details

The Samsung Galaxy A40 is an excellent alternative for those who want a modern smartphone but don't want to pay a lot for it. The A40 has a large screen, many good cameras, a thick battery and lots of working memory. What's missing is the high price tag. We will discuss this further in this discussion.

Modern screen, small notch

Telephones with a large rimless screen were previously intended only for those who wanted to deposit at least 500 euros for it. Samsung proves with this Galaxy A40 that things can also be done differently. For an entry-level price, you already have a 5.9-inch screen. This is large, but because of the thin screen edges, the A40 is not. For example, the A40 is considerably smaller than the S9 flagship of a year ago, although it does have a larger screen. Samsung applies the so-called Infinity U screen. That means there is a U-shaped notch at the top of the screen. This one is meant for the selfie camera, about which more information will be given later. The screen is of the type Super AMOLED which makes colors nice and bright and colorful.

Intryer with dual camera

On the back of the Galaxy A40 we find two cameras. There the A40 differs from the A50 which has three. The main camera is equipped with a 16 megapixel sensor with a neat f/1.9 lens that can also take well-exposed photos at dusk. There is also a 5 megapixel camera with wide-angle lens. It has an angle of view of 123° which corresponds to the human eye. You shoot spatial photos of landscapes, for example. The front camera has the most megapixels; 25 to be precise. This is of course to be able to shoot razor-sharp selfies with a lot of detail.

Main Samsung Galaxy A40 specifications

  • 5.9 inch Infinity U screen with thin screen edges
  • 16 + 5 megapixel rear camera with wide-angle lens
  • High 25 megapixel self-image camera with bright f/2.0 lens
  • Octacore processor at 1.8 GHz with 4 GB working memory
  • 64 GB built-in storage + a memory card slot up to 512 GB
  • fast mobile internet on the go thanks to 4G
  • Supports Dualsim (2 SIM cards + memory card)

Modern software

The Samsung Galaxy A40 also has a fingerprint scanner on the back, while many other new Galaxy A models feature a fingerprint scanner. The advantage of a physical scanner is that you can find it by touch and it is also a fraction faster. You have the option of plugging in your own headphones via the port at the bottom. There you will also find the USB port to charge it. The A40 is extra fast so you can quickly charge 3100 mAh battery when it is empty. Samsung delivers the device standard with Android 9.0 Pie with its own One UI on top. This interface is nice and clear, modern and easy to use with one hand. All in all, the A40 is a modern appearance that is unfortunately not watertight enough.
