The Samsung Galaxy A line has always been the mid-range champion for the Korean electronics giant. The Galaxy A also has always packed some very compelling features while maintaining that mid-range price making it some of the best value smartphones to get in the market. So when the time comes for the Samsung Galaxy A to be replaced, it is always a difficult device to follow-up to.
Samsung attempts to do exactly just that with their brand new Samsung Galaxy A70 though. According to Samsung, the new Samsung Galaxy A70 series will cater to digital natives who wants to capture, connect and share life moments as it happens. As said by DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT and Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics “These connections can only thrive when the most essential features allow people to enhance interactions through spontaneous, collaborative, and genuine connections”
The new Samsung Galaxy A70 features a 6.7-inch screen with 1,080 by 2,400 pixels making a Full HD+ resolution at about 393ppi. This makes it the biggest ever display packed into a Samsung Galaxy A series family. The biggest ever Samsung Galaxy A70 display is an Infinity-U display with a very small notch for its selfie camera on top of the display. Above the front-facing camera notch there is a speaker/ear piece running along the length of the notch between the frame and the screen.
For better ergonomics, the on-screen fingerprint scanner is intuitively positioned so that you don’t have to re-position your hands just to unlock the phone while retaining its sleek and stylish design. Alternatively you can use facial recognition to unlock your phone. Beneath the 6.7-inch display is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 670 Octa-Core processor to power out anything you can throw at it. Paired to that is an 6GB of RAM to keep the multitasking running smooth and snappy.
It packs also up to 128GB of storage and is expandable up to 512GB via a microSD slot. You want that space though because the Samsung Galaxy A70 packs a triple camera system with 32-Megapixel main camera with f/1.7 aperture, an 8-Megapixel ultra-wide (123°) camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a 5-Megapixel depth sensor. To take selfies, the Samsung Galaxy A70 has a 32-Megapixel camera with f/2.0 aperture for a good low-light performance.
Bigger power comes with hungrier power consumption. The Samsung Galaxy A70 has more than enough juice to keep up with it and more though with a 4,500mAh battery; bigger than most regular smartphones today. Even if that is not enough, the Galaxy A70 charges at a maximum of 25W to quickly get you going again.
There are no mentions yet on when the new mid-ranger is coming to town. We do know that it will be soon though on the 10th of April, 2019. The grand Unpacked launch might not happen in Malaysia though. The new Samsung Galaxy A70 comes in four different colours that are Black, Blue, White and Coral.
