Samsung Galaxy A70 price in India revealed
Samsung Galaxy A70 was globally unveiledalongside the Samsung Galaxy A80 at events in Bangkok, Milan, and Sao Paulo earlier this month, and the company brought it to Indian shores this week. The smartphone's highlight is its on-screen fingerprint sensor, triple rear camera setup, its 32-megapixel selfie camera, as well as its Infinity-U Display. The Samsung Galaxy A70 price in India has been set at Rs. 28,990, for its 6GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant.
In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy A70 is a dual-SIM smartphone with Android Pie with One UI, a 6.7-inch full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Super AMOLED display with a 20:9 aspect ratio, a Snapdragon 675 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of inbuilt storage expandable via microSD card (up to 512GB) with a dedicated slot. The Samsung Galaxy A70 sports a triple rear camera setup as we'd mentioned, with a 32-megapixel primary camera (f/1.70), 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera (f/2.2), and a 5-megapixel (f/2.2) depth camera with an f/2.2 lens. It is powered by a 4,500mAh battery with 27W ‘Super-Fast Charging' tech.
Samsung has also revealed that the Galaxy A80 will be launched in India in May, priced between Rs. 45,000 and Rs. 50,000. The company also announced that the Galaxy A-series has sold 2 million units in India within 40 days of launch. The South Korean giant launched two Galaxy A-series smartphones in China this week as well, the first we are seeing of the Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A40s.
The Samsung Galaxy A60 price is set at CNY 1,999 (roughly Rs. 20,700) for the 6GB/ 128GB variant, while the Samsung Galaxy A40s price is set at CNY 1,499 (roughly Rs. 15,600) for the 6GB/ 64GB variant. The Galaxy A60 offers Android 9.0 Pie, a 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) Infinity-O Display, a Snapdragon 675 SoC, 6GB of RAM, choice of 64GB and 128GB inbuilt storage options, a triple rear camera setup (32-megapixel + 8-megapixel + 5-megapixel), a 32-megapixel selfie camera, a rear fingerprint sensor, a 4,500mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. The Galaxy A40s on the other hand features a 6.4-inch Infinity-U Display, an octa-core Samsung Exynos 7904 SoC, a triple rear camera setup (13-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 5-megapixel), a rear fingerprint sensor, and a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging.
It's evident that Samsung had a busy week, and in India also launched an entry-level smartphone called the Galaxy A2 Core. It runs Android 9.0 Pie (Go edition), which is a stripped-down version of Android optimised for low RAM and storage configurations. Priced at Rs. 5,290, the smartphone is available via offline retail stores in the country, and for now, there's no information about when it will become available via online stores.
The Samsung Galaxy A2 Core sports a 5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) display, an octa-core Exynos 7870 SoC, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel selfie camera, 16GB of inbuilt storage expandable by microSD card, and a 2,600mAh battery. While more official specifications haven't been detailed, we can expect Samsung to have launched the smartphone in Black and Blue colour, as previous leaks detailed, as well as the dual-SIM variant for India.
Realme 3 Pro teasers ahead of Monday's launch
The Realme 3 Pro is due to launch in India on Monday, April 22, and ahead of that date, the company started taking 'pre-bookings'in the form of 'Blind Orders', the company's terminology for a lucky draw for invites (called R-Pass) to buy the Realme 3 Pro in its first sale. Separately, this week, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth said that the Realme 3 Pro will be capable of producing64-megapixel images with its Ultra HD mode, though details on exactly how this will work are still scarce.
