“The Galaxy A30 is expected to bridge the gap between the already announced Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A40 smartphones”
Since the start of the year, Samsung has been at the forefront with its smartphone launches. The chaebol has not only launched its flagship models in the Galaxy S10 series but has also refreshed its Galaxy M and Galaxy A series. Last week, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A80 smartphone with a rotating front camera at an event in Thailand. Even before the handset could go for sale, a new smartphone, allegedly dubbed as Galaxy A30, has surfaced on TENAA – Chinese certification site. Moreover, the unannounced Galaxy M40 smartphone has also been spotted on the WiFi certification site.
Starting with the TENAA listing, two new Samsung phones with model numbers A3050 and SM-A3058 have been certified. The handset is reported to be a variant of Galaxy A30, which would fall in between the Galaxy A20 and Galaxy A40 smartphones. As per the listing, the handset will feature a 6.4-inch AMOLED display like the Galaxy M30 but with a lower 1560 x 720 HD+ resolution. The phone has been tipped to be driven by 1.8GHz or 1.6GHz octa-core processor, paired with 4GB, 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of expandable storage.
Surprisingly, the Samsung SM-A3050 (SM-A3058) is likely to rock the same camera setup as the M30. There are 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel + 5-megapixel sensors on the rear and a 16-megapixel shooter on the front for selfies and video calling. The Android 9 Pie will reportedly take care of the software side of things, while a beefy 4,900mAh battery will keep the handset up and running. The images aren’t out yet, but the phone is said to measure 159 x 75.1 x 8.4mm and weight is 174 grams.
The Galaxy M40, on the other hand, is expected to be a slightly beefed up version over the Galaxy M30 smartphone. The specs remain a mystery at the moment, but the Wi-Fi certification reveals the phone will come with SM-M405F model number and run Android 9 Pie out of the box, making it the first Galaxy M series phone to do so.
