Samsung Will Soon Launch The Galaxy A70s With 64 MP Camera
Korean electronics giant, Samsung is planning on launching yet another device in the Galaxy A lineup. The upcoming device will be called the Galaxy A70s and as the name suggests, it is a specced up variant of the Galaxy A70 which was launched in the month of March. Noteworthy, it will be the world’s first smartphone to feature a 64 MP resolution camera. It will incorporate the Samsung ISOCELL GW1 camera sensor which was unveiled earlier this month.
The ISOCELL GW1 sensor has a small 0.8 micrometre size pixel which is considerably smaller than most camera sensors found on modern smartphones. The pixel size of a camera sensor determines the amount of light it can absorb which directly affect the exposure levels in images captured. Interestingly, the ISOCELL GW1 uses a technology called Tetracell which combines the image data and light from four 16 MP sensors that can produce the impressive image quality that Samsung boasts of.
In addition to the 64 MP camera sensor, the Galaxy A70s is likely to have similar specifications as the original device. For reference, the specifications of Galaxy A70 are as follows:
The front of the Samsung Galaxy A70 sports a gigantic 6.7 inch Super AMOLED display which is surrounded with minimal bezels. The rear panel of the device is made out of glass that houses the company branding and the triple rear camera setup. Under the hood, the Galaxy A70 packs the Snapdragon 675 SoC which is comprised of an Octa Core CPU and the Adreno 612 GPU.
The smartphone is powered by a 4,500 mAh battery which supports 25 W fast charging. In term of optics, the Galaxy A70 features a 32 MP front facing camera which is housed in the Infinity U notch above the display. Talking about the triple rear camera setup, it is comprised of a 32 MP sensor, an 8 MP ultrawide sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor. It runs on the latest Android 9 Pie which is skinned with Samsung’s One UI.
To conclude, the Galaxy A70s with a beefed up camera and similar specifications to the Galaxy A70 seems like a worthy smartphone in the midrange segment. The official price and specifications of the handset will be revealed at the official launch event which is reported to happen soon.
