Samsung Galaxy A70 goes official – Embraced with cinematic screen


The Samsung Galaxy A70 goes official, and its a marvelous piece of technology. The phone is embraced with its first cinematic screen with minimum bezels. The 6.7″ Super AMOLED panel is carved with 20:9 aspect ratio, and it’s the Infinity-U panel from Samsung. With that said, it has a 32MP selfie camera inside the notch area.

The rear cameras on the Galaxy A70 are no slouch either. There exists a main 32MP sensor with a bright f/1.7 aperture along with a second and a third lens. The second lens is an 8MP ultra-wide angle module and has a FOV of 123°. The last one is a classic 5MP depth sensor, but we were expecting a telephoto lens, that’s not the case.

The biometrics on the Samsung entry-level phones are growing stronger. The latest one offers an optical in-display fingerprint reader as well as face recognition as security mechanisms.

Samsung Galaxy A70 Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy A70 is a powerhouse and runs an octa-core chipset inside. There is a whopping 4,500mah battery that leverages the fast charging mechanism to draw 25W fast charging standards. Surprisingly, this is the first galaxy phone to pull power that is above 18W, except for the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G which is still not available.

Other hardware specifications on the phone include either 6GB o 8GB of RAM. There is a standard 128GB of internal storage, and one can expand the storage via one MicroSD (up to 512GB), giving you a lot of versatility. Also, there is support for up to two SIM cards on the phone.

One thing that is amazing about the Galaxy A70 is its one hand usability. With the same dimensions of Galaxy A7 2018, you get a fairly large phone, but the ergonomics are still comfortable in hands. One can compare it to the Note9 in terms of one hand use. Features like One-Hand Navigation still prevails on the phone.

The phone packs in Android 9.0 with One UI out of the box. Features like Night mode and Samsung essentials like Pay, Knox, and Pass will prevail to make the phone competitive.

Samsung Galaxy A70 Availability

The design on the A70 looks premium with 3G Glastic build that shimmers the prism effect with flairs in four options – Coral, Blue, Black, and White. The phone will be available on April 10, so the price and the regional availability are still not confirmed.
