Samsung has officially announced the next A-series phone, Galaxy A70. With other phones like the Samsung Galaxy A50 already in the market, let’s see how much better the phone is in terms of specs and features. So, without any further ado, let’s dive into the specifics.
Samsung Galaxy A70 Highlights
Upfront, the phone displays a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED screen with FHD+ resolution, an aspect ratio of 20:9 and 87.5% screen to the body ratio. So, it has a bigger and better display than the Galaxy A50. It has an Infinity-U cutout up top like its siblings.
The phone runs on a 2GHz octa-core processor. However, the details of the chipset used haven’t been revealed yet. In the memory zone, it has a higher 6/8GB RAM+ 128GB ROM – a major bump from the A50 specs. But, the similarities continue with a dedicated expandable storage slot which goes up to 512GB.
The rear camera setup has upgraded to a trio- 32MP sensor (f/1.7 aperture) coupled with an 8MP ultra-wide sensor (f/2.2 aperture, 123 degrees), and finally a 5MP third depth sensor (f/2.2 aperture). The front camera is a 32MP (f/2.0 aperture) selfie snapper housed in the Infinity-U cutout.
One another area where it raises the bar from its siblings is with the 4,500mAh battery with support for Super-Fast charging at 25W. Gladly, the software experience would be the same as in the recent A-series phones, i.e. Android 9.0 Pie based One UI. You also get usual connectivity options like Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth v4.2, 4G VoLTE capable dual SIM slots (nano), NFC, and USB Type-C port.
On the announcement, DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics said, “Today’s consumers are using their phones in a more visually active and authentic way – sharing their experiences and staying connected longer. These connections can only thrive when the most essential features allow people to enhance interactions through a spontaneous, collaborative, and genuine connection. This requires an evolution. Which is why, to meet the needs of this emerging generation, we created the new Galaxy A70 – designed for the way people are connecting now.”
