Yet another day and yet another leak. 2019 is continuing Samsung’s bangs as new devices continue to appear filling in all of the nooks and crannies of the smartphone market. It seems like the Samsung Galaxy A40 has just appeared on Geekbench suggesting the imminent launch of yet another device.
According to the Geekbench result, it seems like the Samsung Galaxy A40 (2019) would carry SM-A405FN as its model number and would feature yet another mid-range spec sheet under the hood. Based on the Geekbench leak, the Samsung Galaxy A40 would feature an Exynos 7885 SoC along with 4GB of RAM. In addition to that, the device would run on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and managed to score some decent benches on Geekbench.
The device scored 1322 and 3987 in its single-core and multi-core tests which is pretty typical of an Exynos 7885 SoC.
Just like most database leaks from Geekbench, there isn’t much more that Geekbench exposes other than a few core specs. This means that we could only predict what the rest of the internals may look like.
This definitely fits into Samsung’s plans to try to penetrate the mid-range market after OnePlus, Xiaomi and Huawei have taken over the segment as one of Samsung’s rep told us in an interview. Given that the Samsung Galaxy A-series caters the upper-mid-range market, it would be a complete bummer of if Samsung does not manage to add a decent amount of internals, especially the memory and storage aspect of things.
Given that the Galaxy A8S is currently Samsung’s showcase for now and that Samsung doesn’t have a history of playing with double-digited A-series of devices, the Galaxy A40 may very well be a mid-range device that would sit under the Galaxy A8S.
For now, we can’t be budged by these launches. We have our eyes set for the Samsung Galaxy S10 lineup of devices as Samsung had recently confirmed that they would be unveiling the Samsung Galaxy S10 and its family of devices at the upcoming UNPACKED event on February the 20th.
