Samsung has introduced a new addition to their budget-oriented M-series — the new Samsung Galaxy M40.
The new Samsung Galaxy M40 is touted to be the most interesting device on the entire line-up. Unlike the Galaxy M20 and its other brothers, the M40 will offer more premium design and features.
The fanfare starts with its 6.3-inch FHD+ PLS display, with a cutout on the top left for the 16-megapixel selfie camera to see through. Samsung calls it as the “Infinity-O” display, which we already saw on devices like the Galaxy S10.
To completely make the bezels smaller, the Samsung Galaxy M40 uses a screen sound technology, so the display also acts as a speaker. It also features a sleek metal build, with what seems to be a color gradient, glass-like finish on the back.
The Galaxy M40 has the most powerful processor on the entire line-up. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage.
It runs on Android 9 Pie with a clean Samsung One UI interface. Although its 3,500mAh battery is a bit behind from its brothers.
