Samsung Galaxy A70s Gets Wi-Fi Alliance Certification, Launch Imminent


Samsung has just recently unveiled the Galaxy A30s and A50s last week as slightly tweaked versions of the original A30 and A50 handsets. And now, the Korean multinational is now prepping for the Galaxy A70s to launch in soon. The said device has appeared on the Wi-Fi Alliance website today only days after it was first seen on Geekbench. The model number is the same as seen on the benchmark earlier which is SM-A707F.

The Galaxy A70s earlier visit to Geekbench revealed that it houses a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon SM6150 SoC in its guts. Now, usually, this does mean that it has a Snapdragon 675 SoC but Geekbench sometimes mistakes the Snapdragon 730 as the SM6150. Hence, we wouldn’t jump to conclusions about the processor just yet. That said, it is definitely likely that the CPU of the Galaxy A70 will be carried forward. That is also hinted by the scores achieved in the test by the handset. It’s also possible that there will be multiple models but the one found on Geekbench has 6GB of RAM and runs Android 9.0 Pie.

Taking cues from the Galaxy A50s launch, we expect the Galaxy A70s to be a minor iterative upgrade at best or even a downgrade in certain aspects. The Galaxy A30s, for example, has a lower resolution screen than the Galaxy A30. On the other hand, the Galaxy A50s has just a handful of improvements such as the primary camera sensor. Samsung could launch the handset any day without much fanfare as was the case with the two latest A-series phones that went official last week. We exclusively reported some information regarding the colour variants of the handset in early June. Samsung will be offering the Galaxy A70 in Black, White, and Lavender. Also, it could be the company’s first 64MP camera handset as per rumours, although this is not confirmed.  

Samsung has also been preparing for the major upgrades to the A series with reports of the Galaxy A91 making the rounds on the interwebs lately. The handset is expected to be Samsung’s first 108MP camera smartphone and 45W fast charge. The Galaxy A70s will also be coming to India soon.
