The Samsung Galaxy A40 is the middle child among the A-series family. So far, about 8 smartphones have been released in this series by Samsung this year. The Samsung Galaxy A10, Galaxy A20, and Galaxy A30 are the lower ones. While the Samsung Galaxy A50, Galaxy A60, Galaxy A70, and Galaxy A80 are the higher smartphones of the series. Let’s have a look at the Galaxy A40.

Samsung Galaxy A40 Design

This device is the easiest to hold among the A-series. It small and not chunky, measuring 144.4 x 69.2 x 7.9 mm in dimensions and weighing just 140 grams. The design looks somewhat premium even though it features a front glass with glastic (polycarbonate material) back and frame. It’s available in four different body colors; Black, White, Blue, and Coral.

At the back of the Galaxy A40 is a fingerprint scanner that’s centered at the top and easy to reach. You’ll see a dual camera and LED flash at the top left corner also. The front is made up of the display with waterdrop notch and bottom chin. Overall, the design of the Galaxy A40 is pretty much classy for a device at its price range.
