Samsung Galaxy A40 Price in Nepal: TBD
Galaxy A40 comes with a dual 16MP + 5MP camera setup instead of the triple camera setup found on the Galaxy A50. At the front, there’s a 25MP selfie camera. We will have to test these cameras in person to give you a verdict on their photo quality. However, I used the Galaxy A30 for a short period of time and the cameras there clicked good photos. So, I am hopeful. I have to tell you that an ultrawide camera at the back is a delightful experience. I am glad that Samsung included one in the A40.
