Samsung may not be the first to market with a smartphone sporting a 64MP camera, but the new Samsung Galaxy A70s certainly doesn’t have a lot of competition in the space.
The company is launching the mid-range smartphone first in India, where it will sell for about $410 and up before bringing the Galaxy A70s to other markets.
The phone’s primary camera features a 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 Bright sensor, which can capture high-resolution images or use quad-pixel technology to capture more light and save a 16MP image.
But it’s actually just one of four cameras on this phone — there are three on the back and one on the front:
- 64MP primary
- 8MP ultra-wide (123-degrees)
- 5MP depth-sensing
- 32MP front camera
The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor and features a 6.7 inch, 2400 x 1080 pixel Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop-style notch for the camera, and an in-display fingerprint sensor.
It has a 4,500 mAh battery and support for 25 watt fast charging.
Samsung has priced a model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage at ₹28,999, or about $410, while an 8GB/128GB model sells for ₹30,999 ($440).
The phone also has a microSD card reader, USB-C port, and 3.5mm audio jack.
