Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy M40 today as expected. The phone is basically the same as the Galaxy A60 in all aspects, there is no difference whatsoever. It features a 6.3-inch Infinity-O LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. There is a punch-hole located at the upper left of the display, this accommodates a 16MP f/2.0 selfie camera. There is no earpiece as the phone relied on screen sound casting technology.
Moving on, the Galaxy M40 is driven by a Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz, clubbed with 6GB of RAM, Adreno 612 GPU and 128GB of storage. The storage can be expanded via a MicroSD card up to 512GB. The phone sports triple camera behind – there is a 32MP main shooter with an f/1.7 aperture, a secondary 5MP depth camera with an f/2.2 aperture, followed by an 8MP ultra-wide angle lens (123°) with an f/2.2 aperture.
