Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Pro

Galaxy Note 10 & Pro reveal on 10 August – no Bixby button or headphone jack?

Samsung is all set to launch yet another galaxy M-series smartphone in India today.

The Samsung Galaxy M40 does look like a smartphone fit for 2019.

Judging by Samsung's previous Galaxy Note 9 launch announcement on August 9, 2018, GSMArena wrote that there is a good chance that the Galaxy Note 10 would be available starting August 25 if its launch were to follow a similar timeframe. It has subtle gradient shades and is offered in two colours based on blue.

Samsung will be selling the Galaxy M40 at Rs 19,990.

For Airtel subscribers, Galaxy M40 users would be entitled to 100% extra data for a period of 10 months.

Airtel is also claimed to offer 100 percent additional data for a period of 10 months for its consumers purchasing the Galaxy M40. This exclusive offer gives users savings worth Rs 3,110 over 10 recharges.

The Galaxy A20 had a 6.4-inch display, 13MP rear camera, a 4,000mAh battery, and 32GB of storage. It is a Full HD+ display and the device comes with Widevine L1 certification for streaming HD content. The highlight feature of Samsung Galaxy M40 is its punch-hole display and the triple-rear camera setup. The smartphone is also Samsung's first model to have a "Screen Sound" technology that will produce audio without an earpiece. The display has a teardrop notch, which Samsung calls an Infinity-U display. Having said that there is a dedicated speaker at the bottom of the phone as well. Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy M40 will have an octa-core Snapdragon 675 SoC along with 6GB of RAM and 128 GB maximum storage. The phone also supports microSD card expandability up to 512GB. On the back, the Galaxy M40 will pack a 32-megapixel primary lens in a triple-camera setup, while the other two sensors are a 5-megapixel depth and 8-megapixel ultra-wide lens. At the front, there is a 16 megapixel selfie camera. The phone also supports video features such as 4K recording, Slo-mo, and Hyperlapse.

All three devices will come with Samsung's One UI interface, which requires Android Pie 9.0. There is also a fingerprint sensor at the back. The Galaxy M40 is backed by a 3,500mAh battery. A 45 W fast charge would be among the best in the industry, so it's a bit surprising that Samsung will not be using it on its most expensive device of the year. Wired headphones with 3.5mm jack will still work with the Note 10 and beyond, but you'll need a USB-C-to-3.5mm dongle.
