After making us wait for months, Samsung has finally launched its mid-ranger Galaxy M40 in India. The new device has been listed to the company’s latest M-lineup, which has become one of the most popular series in the mid-range segment. Some of the key highlights of the smartphone include a massive RAM capacity of 6GB along with enormous internal storage of 128Gb. Moreover, Samsung M40 is the first in its segment that features a ‘screen sound’ technology, which makes the display panel enabled for producing audio vibrations even without a dedicated earpiece.
The latest Samsung Galaxy M40 carries a price tag of Rs. 19,990, which is sure to make the competition tougher for Xiaomi, Realme, HMD Global and any other companies that primarily manufacture smartphones under the Rs. 20,000 price segment. Moreover, as a part of the launch offers, Samsung has included double data benefits for Reliance Jio users. The offer is applicable on Rs. 198 and Rs. 299 prepaid plans. The Jio subscribers will receive Rs. 3,110 savings over 10 recharges on recharging with Rs. 198.
On the other hand, Idea and Vodafone customers will receive Rs. 3,750 cashback on recharging with Rs. 255. The cashback will be given to the customers through Rs. 75 recharge vouchers for up to 50 recharges. In addition to that, customers are eligible to receive additional 0.5GB data per day for up to eighteen months. Airtel customers who buy the Samsung Galaxy M40 will receive 100 per cent additional data for 10 months.
As for the availability, Galaxy M40 is likely to go on sale starting 12 PM (noon) on June 18, 2019. Initially, the online sales partner includes Amazon.in and Samsung Online Shop. The smartphone ships in two colour variants namely Midnight Blue and Seawater Blue.
