The Samsung Galaxy A40 is a new smartphone from the Samsung Galaxy A series and can be seen as the successor to the Galaxy A6. Smartphones from this midrange line are characterized by their excellent cameras and nice features.
This also applies to the Galaxy A40. This device has two cameras at the rear, including one camera with a wide-angle lens. The smartphone also runs out of the box on the user-friendly Android 9.0 Pie, has 64GB of storage memory and a fast fingerprint scanner on the back.
Let’s delve a little deeper into what you should expect to enjoy when you acquire the Galaxy A40 smartphone.
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.
With the sharp front camera, you take the best selfies both during the day on the beach and in the evening when you go out. With extras like Smart Beauty and Selfie Focus you always stand out at your best. The Galaxy A40 is also equipped with additional options such as the AR Stickers and Stamps. With this, you can add nice filters to your photos. You can also create your own AR emoji. Those are emoji with your face!
This A40 has a battery capacity of 3100mAh unlike the Galaxy A40s with 5000mAh battery. With this, you have on average more than enough battery capacity all day long. Have you been gaming a lot and your battery is running low at the end of the day? Then you can charge it quickly with Fast Charge via the handy USB-C port.
With 64GB of storage memory, you can take a lot of photos and save songs before your memory is full. Do you prefer to save your movie collection on your smartphone, or do you download long playlists from Spotify and do you need more space? Then you can expand the memory with a microSD card.
Do you have a separate smartphone for private and work and do you find that awkward? Even then, the Galaxy A40 offers a solution. You can not only use two SIM cards in the smartphone, it also has a Dual Messenger function. That means you can use two accounts from the same apps. For example, you can create two WhatsApp accounts: one for your business contacts and one for private use. Handy!
Samsung delivers the device with Android 9.0 Pie, the user-friendly software from Google. The manufacturer has made various adjustments. You can think of using other icons or pre-installing different apps.
