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, a lot of good cameras, a large battery and a lot of RAM memory. What is missing is the high price tag. In this descriptions we will discuss that further.
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 at your disposal. That 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, while it does have a larger screen. Samsung applies the so-called Infinity U screen. This means that there is a U-shaped notch at the top of the screen. This is intended for the selfie camera, about which more will be discussed later. The screen is of the Super AMOLED type, which makes colors nice and bright.
Entry-level but 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. Additionally, there is a 5 megapixel camera with wide-angle lens. This camera has an angle of view of 123°, which corresponds to the human eye. With this camera you take spatial photos of for example landscapes. The camera at the front has the most megapixels; 25 to be precise. That 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 bezels
- 16 + 5 megapixel rear camera with wide-angle lens
- High 25 megapixel selfie camera with bright f/2.0 lens
- Octacore processor at 1.8 GHz with 4 GB RAM 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)
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 on top of that it is 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's 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 operate with one hand. All in all, the A40 is a modern appearance that is unfortunately not waterproof enough.
