“Samsung Galaxy A70s will support dual-band Wi-Fi, come with dual-SIM connectivity, and run Android 9 Pie, according to the Wi-Fi Alliance listing”
Samsung Galaxy A70s has been part of the rumour mill for almost half a year now, but there has been nothing official about it yet. To recall, it was first reported in May that Samsung Galaxy A70s will be the brand’s first smartphone with 64MP primary rear camera sensor. Now, it seems the South Korean brand has finally started preparing to launch the smartphone as the Samsung Galaxy A70s with model number SM-A707F/DSM has bene certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance. This signals that Samsung has begun gathering all the certifications necessary to launch the smartphone.
The Samsung SM-A707F/DSM smartphone certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance today will offer dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi support. It will run Samsung’s custom One UI skin based on Android 9 Pie, the listing shows. The DS in the model name refers to the handset being a dual-SIM device.
There’s not much else of interest to glean in the Samsung Galaxy A70s Wi-Fi certification. However, now that the Wi-Fi certificate is here, we can expect the smartphone to receive the Bluetooth SIG certification sooner rather than later. We can look forward to the smartphone launching soon, according to a tipster who had claimed the company had paused work on the 64MP phone before restarting it again with the aim of a September or October launch.
According to leaks in the past, the Samsung Galaxy A70s will be the brand’s first smartphone with a 64MP sensor, obviously the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor that will also be seen in the Realme XT and Redmi Note 8 Pro. The smartphone’s Geekbench listing had shown it will be a powered by the Snapdragon 675 processor, backed by 6GB RAM. It achieved single-core and multi-core scores of 2365 and 6372, respectively, putting it firmly in the mid-range segment. Another report had claimed the Samsung Galaxy A70s will come in Black, White, Blue, and Coral colour options.
