After weeks of rumors and leaks, Samsung has finally launched the long-rumored Samsung Galaxy A40. According to the latest information online, the device has officially launched in the Netherlands revealing the official design and specifications of the device. The company has priced the device at €249 which converts to about Rs 20,000 at the time of writing. This indicates that the company is planning to take on the mid-range price segment with the launch of the device. As expected from the model number, the device will plug the price gap between its existing Galaxy A30 and A50 that have already launched in India.
This launch comes just after the company hinted that it was planning to launch a new smartphone on April 10, 2019, in India. As previously reported it is likely that Samsung will launch the Galaxy A90 in India on the date. In addition to this, this launch comes just a day after the company launched its Galaxy A20 in Russia. The company has already launched 9 devices in just a span of three months in the Indian market.
