Samsung commenced its budget and the mid-range lineup of smartphones for 2019 through the announcements of Galaxy M10, M20, and M30. After that, the company focused on the A-series devices and announced almost a dozen of them. With so many smartphones already in the market in the first half of the year, we presumed Samsung is done releasing the smartphones for the year. But looking at the recent progression, Samsung does not seem to be on rest. A new Galaxy device recently appeared on Geekbench and the listing hints the device to be the Samsung Galaxy M40.
The new Galaxy device appeared on Geekbench with the model number SM-M405F. And looking at the naming convention of the Samsung smartphones, it is supposed to be the Galaxy M40. The listing also showed that the phone would have SD6150 processor, which is the code name for the Snapdragon 675 chipset. The phone will also have 6GB of RAM on the board. However, there is no information regarding other RAM variants of the device.
The Geekbench listing also shows that the Galaxy M40 will have the Android Pie on the software front. The software will be flavored by Samsung’s latest custom skin, the One UI on the top.
More details regarding the device are scanty but earlier speculations suggest that the phone will get 128GB of onboard memory. The recent naming convention of the Samsung devices cues that the M40 will be superior to the Galaxy M30. So the display on this device is expected to be bigger than the Galaxy M30. Nonetheless, it has been clearly mentioned that the device will come up with a Super AMOLED display with U-shaped notch on the top. Rumors also highlight that there will be a fingerprint scanner underneath the display.
On to the imaging part, the Samsung Galaxy M40 will have a triple camera setup on its back. However, there is no information regarding the resolution and type of lenses used. On the front, there will be a single selfie shooter residing on the notch. Reports also suggest that the phone will get a 5000mAh battery just like the M30.
A while back, a Samsung smartphone with the same model number was spotted on the websites of Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance. And the sudden listing on the Geekbench suggests that the new phone could make a debut really soon. Since Samsung is fiercely launching smartphones in quick succession, it won’t be a surprise if the South Korean giant unwraps the device next week.
