Inside, Galaxy M40 packs a competitive Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset which is paired with 6GB of RAM. It’s the same chipset used in the Redmi Note 7 Pro and it’s the best in this price category.
For the camera at the back, you get a triple-lens setup with a 32MP main shooter, a 5MP depth, and an 8MP ultrawide one. M40 camera performance is good, especially the wide-angle camera. However, the 32MP sensor is not as useful as you might like it to be.
