The Samsung Galaxy A40 could launch soon to take on the Moto G7
The Samsung Galaxy A30 & A50

Samsung’s updated Galaxy A series will soon include the likes of the Galaxy A60, Galaxy A70, and Galaxy A90. Another smartphone reportedly on the way is the Galaxy A40, which will seemingly launch as the company’s newest mid-range offering.

As its name indicates, the Galaxy A40 will sit between the recently-announced Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. It’s expected to borrow the same 6.4-inch Infinity-U display and will probably include a glossy plastic finish on the rear.

In the camera department, the Galaxy A40 could include the same sensors found on the slightly pricier Galaxy A50. If this is indeed the case, 25-megapixel snappers are to be expected up front and on the rear. The back of the phone should also include an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner.

As for the internal details, the upcoming device should arrive powered by the octa-core Exynos 7904, the same processor found inside the Galaxy A30. Unlike the latter, though, the Galaxy A40 will probably include 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.

The Samsung Galaxy A40 should be announced later this month or in early April. Once this happens, sales in Europe should commence almost immediately. As for pricing, MySmartPrice claims it’ll cost €249 across the continent.

If correct, this places it in direct competition with the Motorola Moto G7 and means it could be quite hard to recommend – Motorola’s device presumably offers a more powerful processor (Snapdragon 632) and superior build quality.

Wrong... optimization, better features and better overall device goes to the Moto G7, with that price and in that range there is no real contender RN.

Moto G7, excellent LCD display, better software experience/ near stock android (no bloatware apps! Lol), moto display/actions and good camera makes it much better than the A40. Samsung doesn't do good even on midrange.

"...better software experience/ near stock android (no bloatware apps! Lol)..." Near stock android doesn't make it a better software experience. That's just your opinion. "...and good camera makes it much better than the A40." Unless you're referring to midrange devices, Motorola cameras have been inferior to Samsung cameras for over half a decade. Not sure where you're getting this from.

And does that make your touchwiz faster? Samsung is known to lag after a few months and their midrange devices don't have good cameras. I'd rather choose a noiser image from Moto than an oversaturated, oversharpened, beautified images. This is a midrage battle and clearly Samsung doesn't know how to make one.
