Samsung Galaxy M40 expected price, features, specifications
As per the leak, the Samsung Galaxy M40 will feature an Infinity-O display. This is essentially a display with a punch-hole at the top-left corner for the selfie camera. This allows for a full-screen design without the need for a notch.
Under the hood is expected to be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset paired with Adreno 612 GPU, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. This falls in line with a recent Geekbench listing, which too mentioned the same set of internals. This will prove to be a departure from the other three Galaxy M smartphones, which are powered by Samsung s Exynos chipsets. On the software front, the device is expected to run Android 9 Pie out-of-the-box with Samsung s One UI on top.

The Galaxy M40 is further rumored to come with a triple-camera setup at the back with quite a few improvements when compared to the Galaxy M30. The leak further mentions that the smartphone will come with a capacitive fingerprint sensor.
As per a recent report, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M40 will be priced close to the Rs 25,000 mark in India. This will make it more expensive than the Galaxy M30, which is available for Rs 17,990 (128GB+6GB model). There have also been reports claiming that Samsung could launch another smartphone alongside the Galaxy M40. This smartphone in question is the Samsung Galaxy A10s.
