With the launch of Galaxy M40 this June 11, the smart phone giant will be a great competitor to the mid-range mobile phone segments. The Samsung Galaxy M40 is a mid-range smartphone that comes with a metal frame at the back and a 3D glass that tops the display. The device has an amazing set of camera and huge storage capacity. Its powerful processor and long-time battery backup give users a seamless performance experience. With the provided budget, it is one of the best handsets that consumers can have.

A company executive has already hinted that the Samsung Galaxy M40 will be priced below Rs 20,000. This means that the handset will go up against the likes of the Redmi Note 7 Pro, Realme 3 Pro and others that are categorized in the same price range. Samsung has been aggressively revamping its sales strategy by introducing flagship-level features in its A-series of phones. Its M-series of handsets also benefit from it and now we are seeing less expensive handsets by Samsung come with updated hardware. The Samsung Galaxy M40 is shaping up to be one such device, which joins the Galaxy M10, M20 and the Galaxy M30 in India.

Galaxy M40 will be powered by entry-flagship Snapdragon 675 chip as Redmi Note 7 Pro or Vivo V15 with up to 6GB of RAM paired with Adreno 612 GPU. Based on a 11nm architecture, the Snapdragon SoC offers some top-level performance on a budget.

The handset will have a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a vertically-aligned camera module with LED flash just below at the top right corner, similar to the Galaxy M30 smartphone. The camera sensor details, as well as a battery cell, are not known at the moment. The handset will have at least a blue shade but we should get to know about more color variants on June 11th.

The Galaxy M40 will be announced on June 11 at 6pm which is when we will know the confirmed specs and price in India. The phone will be sold exclusively online on Amazon India and Samsung’s official online store.
