Having a flagship Galaxy S10 series, now Samsung has uncovered a new mid-range phone Galaxy A70 to woo middle-class users. It is also equipped with some surprisingly good hardware, which includes a large screen, a beefier battery, and three rear cameras.
The most eye-catching thing about this A70 is its height which stands 164.3 mm (6.5 in) vertically and head and shoulders above the latest iPhone and Galaxy phones. Being a big body, it has sufficient room for a mammoth 6.7-in AMOLED screen displaying a better-than-Full HD resolution of 1080 x 2400.
Features Under the Hood
With least bezels, Samsung continues its “hole-punch” style of housing with the front-facing camera in a small black dot. This dot has been moved up to the top center from the upper right of the screen. This makes it more like a less intrusive tiny notch.
An impressive 32-megapixel camera is placed inside that hole punch, which offers the highest resolution selfie cam that you have ever seen in a phone. This phone also has one on the back too, along with an 8-MP ultra-wide lens and a 5-MP camera adding more depth to photos. With that, users can adjust the depth of focus either before or after taking a shot.
This phone is devoid of any slouch either. It is equipped with an Octa-Core processor with the option of 6 or 8 GB of RAM, and 128 GB of storage space. You can also expand the memory using a MicroSD card, up to an extra 512 GB. Powered by a 4,500-mAh battery, having upped the ante from the 3,000 to 3,500 mAh capacities which you can find in most current phones. Samsung claims that the A70 has Super-Fast Charging at 25 W.
When it comes to the security, the A70 also has an on-screen fingerprint sensor and facial recognition system. It is available in black, blue, coral and white color options. It is all finished in the same “prism” effect the Galaxy S10 series has, generating gradient colors in a specific light.
The right prices and availability is expected to reveal at A Galaxy Event on April 10.
