Samsung Galaxy A70 with Android Pie Gets Wi-Fi Certification, Launch Drawing Closer?


Just a few hours back, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A60 mid-range Android smartphone bagged certification from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). The Samsung Galaxy A70, which is expected to be among the more expensive Galaxy A-series smartphones to be released this year, has now been granted certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance. This could possibly mean that both the Galaxy A60 and Galaxy A70 models may be made official very soon by Samsung.

SM-A705FN/DS Variant Certified by Wi-Fi Alliance

The Galaxy A70 variant certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance happens to be SM-A705FN/DS. Just as expected, the Wi-Fi certificate lists no key specifications of the upcoming smartphone. It only confirms support for Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and that the Galaxy A70 will be shipped with the Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box.

As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy A70 is going to be more of a premium mid-range offering that will be slotted above the Galaxy A60 in Samsung’s 2019 A-series lineup. It is likely to come with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution and an In-display fingerprint sensor. Going by recently leaked case renders of the smartphone, Galaxy A70 will have a U-shaped notch at the top of the display, just like the existing Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50. In terms of battery life, the Galaxy A70 may prove to be a lot more impressive compared to other Galaxy A-series smartphones launched so far. A previous rumor had claimed the Galaxy A70 will pack a 4400mAh capacity battery with fast charging support.

The rest of the smartphone’s key specifications, however, are yet to be revealed. We expect the Galaxy A70 to be powered by a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset and pack up to 8GB of RAM. On the back of the smartphone, we may see a triple-camera setup similar to the Galaxy A50.
