Upcoming Samsung Galaxy A40 with model number SM-A405FN has been spotted on Geekbench with mid-range specs.
From the Geekbench listing, we can see that the device comes with 4GB RAM and is powered by Exynos 7885 SoC. The phone will ship with Android 9 Pie OS out of the box. The single core score in Geekbench is 1316 and multi core score is 3964. It’s worth mentioning here that the 6GB variant of Samsung Galaxy A50, which was recently spotted in Geekbench, has better scores than Galaxy A40 in Geekbench.
At least 3 phones in the 2019 Galaxy-A series lineup is believed to come with in-display fingerprint sensor. Almost all phones in the new A-series lineup are expected to sport the AMOLED display along with the latest Infinity type display as showcased in the developer conference in November 2018.
Galaxy A40 is one among the several models in 2019 in the Galaxy-A series of smartphones. Based on information from Chinese sources, we can say that a maximum of 9 models could be in the making in the Galaxy A series and the model numbers are believed to be in double digits starting from A10, A20, A30 to A90.
Galaxy A40 and Galaxy A50 Release Date
The Galaxy A40 phone could be release around the same time when Samsung decides to announce the Galaxy A50 phone which could be in Spring 2019. Meanwhile, Samsung Galaxy A50 (SM-A505FN & SM-A505GN) has been in the news of late appearing in Geekbench and bagging other certifications like WFA.
Samsung has already trademarked (in July 2018) the names of several Galaxy-A series phones namely Galaxy A10, A30, A50, A70 and A90. We were also expecting the even number series like A20, A40, A60 and A80 phones could be released and this new Geekbench listing has confirmed that Galaxy A40 is in the works for sure and so could be the other A-series models as well.
