Back in May, we reported Samsung's new 64MP camera would make its way to a device called the Galaxy A70s. Unfortunately, we didn't have more details regarding the handset, besides assuming it would be an improved version of the Galaxy A70. The company just officialized the device in India, where you'll be able to buy it starting tomorrow.
The new handset's highlight is definitely its rear triple camera setup, which includes the company's impressive 64MP shooter, coupled with an 8MP 123° ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP live focus lens. The device is also capable of shooting videos in 4K Ultra HD. Even though the primary camera's resolution seems very high, it would most likely only produce images of up to 16MP, combining four pixels into a single one for sharper images, especially in bad lighting conditions. This makes sense, as Samsung is boasting the A70s comes with a powerful night mode.
The rest of the device's specs include a notched 6.7” Super AMOLED FHD+ Infinity-U Display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor, 6 to 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage capacity. Its 4,500 battery is relatively large and should be more than enough to get you through a full day. If you find yourself running out of power, you'll be able to fill it up quickly thanks to its 25W super-fast charging capability. The A70s also comes with advanced software, including an AI-powered Game Booster, Dolby Atmos audio tuning, Knox security, and Samsung Pay.
The device will be available starting tomorrow in stores and online for INR 28,999 for the 6+128GB variant and INR 30,999 for the 8+128GB model, with a choice of three colors: Prism Crush Red, Prism Crush White and, Prism Crush Black.
If you're interested in getting the handset, Samsung has partnered with local carriers to offer special deals for early buyers:
