Samsung wants to reclaim its lost market share in the Chinese market and it plans to do this with the Galaxy A series. The Galaxy A60 and A40s were launched in China a few days ago. Pre-orders for the models have now gone live on Samsung China’s official website. Pre-orders for the Galaxy A60 will end on May 10 while that of the Galaxy A40s will end on May 5. Sales will commence immediately after.
Just as a recap, the Samsung Galaxy A60 comes with a 6.7-inch FHD+ LCD display which has a punch hole design. In the punch hole is a 32MP selfie camera. Thanks to the punch-hole design, the A60 features a screen-to-body ratio of 92%. The diameter of the punch hole 4.8mm. This means that the punch hole is smaller than those of the Honor View 20 and Galaxy A8s. The phone also ditches the design of a traditional speaker at the top and instead opts for a sound-on-display technology just like the Galaxy A80.
In terms of camera specs, the Galaxy A60 comes with three cameras on its rear including a 32MP primary camera, an 8MP super wide-angle camera, and a 5MP depth sensor. The phone comes with a Snapdragon 675 accompanied by 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It also packs a huge 3,500mAh battery. An outstanding feature which the Galaxy A60 comes with is NFC. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the Galaxy A60. The phone comes with a price tag of $299.
The Samsung Galaxy A40s, on the other hand, is basically a rebranded Galaxy M30 which Samsung recently launched in India. It comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Infinity U display which has a notch. The notch has a waterdrop style and on it is a 16MP selfie shooter. The phone comes with the 14nm Exynos 7904 chipset along with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the rear of the Galaxy A40s is a triple camera setup which includes a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP super wide-angle camera, and a 5MP depth sensor and a fingerprint sensor. Under the hood of the phone is a 5000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. The price of the Galaxy A40s starts at $224.
I think the prices of both phones are spot on, therefore, putting them in positions to wrestle some of the market shares from competitors. What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
