The Samsung Galaxy A was unveiled in spectacular style with Black Pink in Thailand just last month. With the announcement of the complete line up of the Galaxy A series this year, ranging from the A10 to the A80, Samsung has carved out a special niche for its Galaxy A devices; taking a particular interest in “The Era of Live”.
The Galaxy A70 takes aim at those who want a larger display without sacrificing the triple camera of the A50. The smartphone looks to deliver an even more immersive experience with the larger screen while keeping all the essentials for those who are looking to share and post on social media. The large FHD+, Super AMOLED display brings 1080×2400 pixels of vivid display in a 6.7-inch form factor for media consumption.
Aside from the display, the Galaxy A70 runs on the Snapdragon 675 processor which promises good, smooth performance without gulping down power from the 4,500 mAh battery. The processor is complemented with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard memory. The combination should be more than sufficient for those looking for a more social experience on their phones.
The Galaxy A70 comes with a triple camera setup with a 32-megapixel main sensor with a f/1.7 aperture and phase detection autofocus, a secondary 8-megapixel ultrawide sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and a 5-megapixel, f/2.2 depth sensor. This setup should allow you to get everything from that picture with bokeh to that envy inducing wide shot of the beach. On the front, the A70 is equipped with a 32-megapixel sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and 0.8µm pixel size for vivid selfies.
Of course, like it’s other A series brethren, the Galaxy A70 comes with USB Type C connectivity. In addition, the A70 is also capable of WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 2.0 with support for Bluetooth LE, GPS connectivity on A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO and BDS networks. It also has an under display fingerprint sensor and a triple card slot which allows both dual SIM capabilities and microSD card expansion of the onboard memory with up to 512GB of additional memory. It also has an under display fingerprint sensor.
