Samsung Galaxy A40 Ad Material Leaked – Isn’t As Good As The Galaxy A30/A50

Leaks regarding Samsung’s upcoming Samsung Galaxy A40 has emerged. Following a long two month wait, the first major signs of the Galaxy A40’s existence is here, suggesting what seems to be an underwhelming set of hardware. The leaks are coming in via a French retailer’s website that has listed the Samsung Galaxy A40 on sale right now.

According to the “allegedly” leaked promo material, courtesy of Slashleaks, the Samsung Galaxy A40 would come with a 5.9-inch AMOLED display, dual rear camera setup and a 25MP selfie camera powered by what seems to be a tiny 3100mAh battery. Other specifications include an Exynos 7904 SoC, 4GB RAM, 64GB of internal storage and a 2340 x 1080 display under the hood.

The device seems to have been leaked in Blanc White at the moment, with more colors most probably coming down the line. The device also borrows a ton of its design cues from the likes of the Galaxy A30 and A50, revealed at MWC 2019. Colors such as Noir Black, Blue and Orange were also spotted on the promo material.

Based on the details revealed so far, the Galaxy A40 sits comfortably between the Galaxy A30 and A50 thanks to its €259 price tag. However, we’re carrying a ton of skepticism over our shoulders at this point.

Given that the Samsung Galaxy A30 and A50 feature a 6.4-inch display paired with a 4000mAh battery. Based on the promo material, it seems to be suggesting that the Galaxy A40 would feature a smaller display and battery compared to the Galaxy A30. For a refresher, here’s a rundown of the hardware on the Galaxy A30 and A50.

It’s highly unlikely that Samsung would want to degrade the Galaxy A40 past the Galaxy A30, again, taking the pricing into account. But then again, the leaks seem to be too cheesy and credible to overlook.

RAM and storage seem to be in line with what we would expect from a device that sits in between the Galaxy A30 and A50. The same could be said of the Galaxy A40’s rear camera setup too.

As the device remains a mystery as this point, we’re looking forward to the Galaxy A event next month where we’re hoping Samsung to show off the Galaxy A40 alongside a number of other devices. Given what this alleged Galaxy A40 is putting on the table, we would be sad to see if this turns out to be the final device’s hardware.
