Leaked Galaxy Fold Hands-on Video Reveals Major Display Issue

The Galaxy A40

Samsung, though the first major player to officially announce a foldable phone (it was preceded last December by the Royole FlexPai), isn't the only brand with skin in the game.

There's still no word about the pricing, but given the discovery, it's likely that Samsung Malaysia will be making some sort of announcement for the Galaxy A10 and Galaxy A20 soon. The company has not revealed global availability details of the smartphone as of now. As expected from the model number, the device will plug the price gap between its existing Galaxy A30 and A50 that have already launched in India. Powered by the Exynos 7885 chip, the Galaxy A40 has 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, with a microSD expansion capability. Moreover, the smartphone features a 5.7-inch infinity U-display and rocks a USB-C port.

Additional product information shows both phones supporting 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth, but only the Galaxy A10 seems to support the ANT+ wireless protocol. On the software side of things, the Samsung Galaxy A40 runs Samsung's new One UI atop an Android 9 Pie core.

It's certainly worrying, particularly in a device that's set to cost $1,980 / €2,000 (around £1,500-£1,700, AU$2,800-AU$3,200), but it could be something that you'll cease to notice with use, just like notches and punch-hole cameras.

With the listing, it appears the A40 won't feature in Samsungs April 10 Galaxy launch event, except the Korean company decides to formally present the device. For the front, the smartphone has a 25-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture. The A20 still gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and it also supports Samsung Pay if NFC is available. It is powered by the Exynos 7884, helped by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The Galaxy A20 is backed by a 4,000mAh non-removable battery.
