A new Exynos chipset?

Performance-wise, it’s listed with an octa-core CPU with 2(2.0Ghz) + 6(1.7Ghz) clusters. For the sake of comparison, it’s a bit different with the 4 + 4 setup of the Galaxy A50. Nevertheless, it’s paired with up to 8GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage via a dedicated microSD slot.

32MP cameras

Samsung continues its strong mid-range camera game with a triple sensor on the back; 32MP f/1.7 + 8MP ultrawide + 5MP depth. While the selfie camera makes use of another 32MP but with a smaller f/2.0 aperture.

Larger battery, faster charging

The battery is another strong suit for the Galaxy A70 as it packs a hefty 4500mAH with a faster-charging capability at 25W. While we are pretty sure it has a USB Type-C port, the lack of audio jack could still be a possibility. But as expected, we have Android 9.0 Pie with One UI skin on top.

The Samsung Galaxy A70 is already dated to be introduced in three continents come April 10th. We can also expect its official price to be released on the same date.
