Say hello to the Samsung Galaxy A70

The fairly random “A range” of Samsung devices don’t usually get the same level of coverage as the Galaxy S handsets, so let’s take a look at the new Samsung Galaxy A70 which was announced yesterday.

This one has a 6.7″ FHD+ (1080×2400) Super AMOLED Infinity display with a 20:9 display ratio. Around back, there’s a 32 megapixel camera (f1.7) and an ultra-wide 8 megapixel shooter alongside it (f2.2). There’s also a 5 megapixel depth sensor plus AI to detect up to 20 scenes and tweaking the shot to make it as good as it can be.


Up front, and cranking out the high megapixels, is a 32 megapixel (f2.0) lens.

This is powered by Android 9.0 (Pie) and has an octa-core (dual 2.0GHz + six 1.7GHz) CPU. There’s either 6GB or 8GB of RAM depending on the configuration plus 128GB of storage on board. You can boost that by up to another 512GB via a microSD card slot. Oh, and you can put two SIM cards in it alongside a microSD – so finally a phone for work, for home and still a slot for your microSD.

This has a 4500 mAh battery, Super Fast Charging and an on-screen fingerprint system.

Available colours include blue, black and white.

We’ve not been approached by any particular network offering this, but you’ll be able to buy it for the very reasonable sum of £369 from 26th April. Head to the Samsung news pages for more info.
