Samsung used to line up Galaxy A-series, J-series, C-series, and On-series devices in the midrange and budget segment. But that changed this year as the company focused to bring only the Galaxy A-series and M-series. And it was going really well at the beginning. But as of late, there are too many Galaxy smartphones in the market and it’s really hard to keep track of all of them. And to make its lineup even vaster, Samsung launched yet another mid-ranger in the market. Dubbed as Samsung Galaxy A70s, the new handset is the refreshed version of the Galaxy A70, which was launched earlier this year.
The major highlight of the handset is its camera. The Galaxy A70 used to have a 32MP primary camera but on the A70s, the resolution of the shooter has been actually doubled. Yeah, that’s right. The Samsung Galaxy A70s features a 64MP main camera. But that isn’t a new thing in the industry since we already have smartphones with 64MP camera like the Redmi Note 8 Pro and the Realme XT. And just like the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Realme XT, Samsung has used its home-grown Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor.
Alongside the 64MP main camera, there are two more cameras. Just like the A70, there is an 8MP ultra-wide-angle and a 5MP depth sensor, which should work more or less similar to the A70. Similarly, on the front, there is a 32MP selfie shooter.
Talking about the display, the phone comes with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Full-HD resolution. You also get a tiny waterdrop-style notch on the top of the display and a fingerprint scanner beneath it. And that says it all, nothing has changed even on the display front.
Powering the device is the Snapdragon 675 processor with 6GB/8GB of RAM at its disposal. As for the memory, you get 128GB of onboard memory and a dedicated SD card slot, which lets you expand the storage even further.
The phone is fueled by a beefy 4500mAh battery. Alongside the massive battery, Samsung has included a 25-watt fast charger to top-up the charge. On the software front, you get the usual One UI on top of the Android Pie. Samsung Galaxy A70s comes in three different colors and all of them feature a 3D prism gradient design with a glossy finish.
