Samsung Galaxy A70 Hands-On
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A70 in March. It sports a 6.7-inch Infinity U display, Qualcomm SM6150, triple rear cameras, and a 4,500mAh battery. We finally got to check it out here in Bangkok, Thailand so check out our hands-on of the device below.
The Samsung Galaxy A70 sports an Infinity U-display, measuring 6.7 inches with a resolution of 1080 x 2440. The screen’s bezels are pretty slim, and the notch houses a 32MP f/2.0 front camera. The smartphone is light, nice to hold, and easy to grip, even for people with small hands.
At the back, there’s the triple camera consisting of a 32MP F1.9 main shooter, 8MP F2.2 (123-degrees) Ultra Wide, and 5MP F2.2 for depth. The back is made of 3D Glasstic which looks nice and glossy but feels less premium than real glass.
On the right side, are the usual volume rockers and the power button which are easy to reach, while on the left, is the triple card tray.
Looking at the bottom, we have the USB Type-C port, 3.5mm audio port, and a speaker grill. The device runs on a large 4,500mAh battery capacity with support for 25W Super Fast Charging.
We took a couple of sample shots to compare the main and ultra wide cameras. We’ll discuss more about its quality in our full review.
Here’s a couple of selfie samples as well.
Powering the Samsung Galaxy A70 runs on an octa-core CPU, up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, and runs on Android 9 Pie. Other features include face recognition, on-screen fingerprint scanner, and Dolby Atmos audio.
