Samsung is probably coming out of the premise that a week without a new smartphone from the Galaxy A line is a week wasted. The company presented this time models Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A40s , which will soon be available for sale on the Chinese market.
A refreshed Samsung A line on the Polish market consists of Galaxy A10 , A20e , A40 , A50 , A70 and A80 models . The last two are just going on sale in the Middle Kingdom, where the Koreans also presented the next medium - Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A40s.
Samsung Galaxy A60 with an Infinity-O panel and a screen speaker
The A60 model is particularly interesting, which - like the Galaxy A8s or flagship from the Galaxy S10 line - is equipped with an Infinity-O screen with a hole for the front camera. This time it is a 6.3-inch FullHD + LCD display, which is to fill 92 percent. the surface of the front panel.
The biggest novelty, however, is the lack of a traditional speaker for talks. Samsung in Galaxy A60 has used Screen Cast technology , thanks to which the whole screen acts as a loudspeaker ( similar to Crystal Sound OLED from LG G8 ThinQ ).
The solution was to prevent Samsung from using the on-screen fingerprint reader, so a more traditional biometric scanner was used on the back panel. Galaxy A60 is equipped with a USB type C connector.
32 megapixel camera at the front and back
The 32-megapixel camera has been hidden in the opening in the screen. The same resolution has the main sensor of the triple module at the back, which is a solution known from the Galaxy A70 . It was composed of:
- main Camera 32 megapixel with optics with brightness f / 1.7 ;
- additional Camera 8 megapixel with wide-angle lens f / 2.2 ;
- an auxiliary 5 megapixel Camera for depth detection.
The smartphone was based on the Snapdragon 675 chip , which works with 6 GB of RAM. The built-in memory has 128 GB and the non-removable battery capacity is 3500 mAh. Samsung took care of this with the fast charging function.
Galaxy A40s, or an alternative version of the Galaxy M30
Galaxy A40s, another novelty from the A line, is an alternative version of the Galaxy M30 model , which is sold in China. Smartfonn is equipped with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED panel with FullHD + resolution. This is an Infinity-U solution with a small drop-shaped notch.
This equipment is based on the Exynos 7904 chipset and has 6 GB of RAM and 64 GB of built-in memory. The advantage is a 5000 mAh battery that can be recharged quickly (15 W charger).
The front camera in the Galaxy A40s has a 16 megapixel Camera, and a triple module consisting of:
- main sensor 13 megapixel with optics with brightness f / 1.9
- an additional 5 megapixel sensor with a wide-angle lens f / 2.2
- an auxiliary 5 megapixel sensor to detect depth.
