Samsung Galaxy A40 Features (Quick Review)

The black Galaxy A40 has a large display with a borderless design, only a slightly thicker edge can be seen at the bottom. The screen is 5.9 inch, but the device itself is not that big thanks to the borderless design. Because the screen is also quite narrow, the device fits nicely in the hand. The selfie camera is incorporated in a notched recess at the top of the screen.

A double camera is placed vertically on the back of the Samsung Galaxy A40. The upper camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels and is equipped with a wide-angle lens. This way you can get a lot on the picture without having to take 10 steps back!

The second camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels and takes great photos in the dark as well as in daylight thanks to artificial intelligence. The camera recognizes 20 different scenes and optimizes your photo accordingly. This way colours are displayed clearly and your photos really come to life.
