Samsung Galaxy A70 Launched

Samsung Galaxy A70 is now official in India within a week of its global unveiling. Interestingly enough, this one runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset and not the in-house Exynos chip. It flaunts Infinity-U AMOLED display and packs powerful hardware under the hood.  

The company claims to have sold 2 million Galaxy A phones in India within 40 days of launch. So, let’s see what the new phone has to offer to carry forward this stride.

Samsung Galaxy A70 Features

The Galaxy A70 will be one rung above the Galaxy A50 (review) on the A-series ladder.

Samsung Galaxy A70 sports a similar 3D Glasstic design with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED FHD+ Infinity-U display. You get an optical under-display fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone. The phone runs on Samsung’s latest OneUI based on Android 9.0 Pie, out of the box.
