Samsung has already launched the Galaxy M10 (Review), Galaxy M20 (Review) and Galaxy M30 (Review) in India. The next logical addition to the new Galaxy M series would be the Galaxy M40, and it would be fine to assume that its launch is just around the corner. The Galaxy M40 has been in the news for a few weeks, but we finally have some concrete proof of its existence as well as a few key specs thanks to the phone cropping up on Geekbench.
The listing on the benchmark site suggests the Galaxy M40 launch could be close at hand. The phone with model number SM-M405F is listed with a Snapdragon 675 chipset, 6GB of RAM and Android Pie. All of these details sound pretty attractive for an affordable mid-range phone. Samsung is yet to launch a Galaxy M phone with a Snapdragon chipset, but it seems the Galaxy M40 will be the first.
This is pretty much all we get from the Geekbench listing apart from the single-core score of 2350 and multi-core score of 6410. We still have no clue about what the Galaxy M40 will look like, but it’s safe to assume that it will keep in line with the other Galaxy M phones. So Samsung will likely go with an Infinity-U waterdrop display and a triple camera setup if we look at the company’s trend this year. Since it’s expected to slot above the Galaxy M30, we also expect a Super AMOLED display and possibly an in-display fingerprint sensor.
As for the pricing, we expect the Galaxy M40 to slot between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 segment. The Galaxy M30 starts at under Rs 15,000, while the Galaxy M20 hovers around Rs 10,000 and the Galaxy M10 falls even below. Samsung is yet to announce anything related to the Galaxy M40, but you expect more details to crop up in the coming days.
