Yesterday, we heard the official word from a Samsung executive that the Samsung Galaxy M40 specs would include a major camera upgrade as compared to the Samsung Galaxy M30. Today, via SamMobile, we’re learning a bit more about the alleged specs of the next Galaxy M product.

According to information obtained by SamMobile, the Galaxy M40 will come with a triple-lens camera with a previously-confirmed 32MP primary sensor. In addition, there will be a 5MP depth and 8MP ultra-wide sensor on the rear. On the front, we already know for certain there will be a 16MP selfie shooter.

Elsewhere in the Samsung Galaxy M40 specs, we’ll find a 6.3-inch FHD+ 2,340 × 1,080 resolution Infinity-O display. Infinity-O is the punch-hole display found on the Samsung Galaxy S10 series. This is a bit of a step up over the Galaxy M30 (depending on how you feel about notches), which features the Infinity-U display, also called a waterdrop notch.

Samsung Galaxy M30 review: The reliable option

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor will be on board, paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Unfortunately, the battery life on the M40 will be a downgrade as compared to the M30. The Galaxy M30 came with a hefty 5,000mAh battery, whereas the Samsung Galaxy M40 specs show a 3,500mAh battery. While that’s not a small battery when compared to other mid-range/budget devices, it’s certainly a stark difference from the M30.

And, finally, the Galaxy M40 will ship with Android 9 Pie out of the box, the first device in the M series to do so (the other three devices all have Pie upgrades, though).

The Samsung exec previously mentioned confirmed the Galaxy M40 will be “around 20,000 rupees,” or about $287. A more specific price is not yet known.
