Samsung revamped it’s mid-range and budget segment this year. Revamped A-series and M-series rejuvenated Samsung’s budget and mid-range segment. It started pretty well until recently when Samsung decided to bring the S-variants.
Joining the ranks of A30s and A50s, Samsung has launched Samsung A70s in Nepal. Samsung A70s is a refresh to the Galaxy A70 launched earlier this year. And, it’s the latest addition to the A lineup.So, how different is it and how does it fare against competitions? Well, let’s find out.
Samsung Galaxy A70s Features
Design-wise there’s just one small improvement that differentiates it from A70. It’s got that “glastic” look but with a prism-based surface, apparently. The interesting aspect is that when light strikes at it, it creates a rainbow-like premium look in the device. And on the front, it has the infinity U cut-out which is protected by gorilla glass.
Under the Infinity U cutout is a 6.7” sAMOLED display with an FHD resolution. The display is the exact same as its forerunner with the same dimensions. Undoubtedly, it is the best display in the mid-range segment. So, great colors, balanced brightness and contrast, and wide viewing angles are the major highlights of its display. Under the display, we get a fingerprint sensor similar to A70.
In its core, the Galaxy A70s has an Octa-Core Snapdragon 675 processor paired with 6GB RAM. The processor was seen in the earlier version as well and is alright. It’s not the best in its category and a little improvement would’ve surely been appreciated in this device. Nonetheless, it’s good in terms of performance and battery management. So, it’s okay for now. There’s flexibility in terms of storage with 128GB inbuilt memory.

One major improvement that should catch everyone’s attention is the 64MP primary camera on this device. Samsung uses its own ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor in this device which is also used on Realme XT and Redmi Note 8 Pro. The primary 64MP lens is surrounded by an 8MP ultrawide and 5MP depth sensor. Though the Redmi Note 8 Pro and Realme XT have impressed with the same main sensor, it’d be interesting to see how the A70s performs.
Powering the device is a huge 4500mAH which should last a day easily as we’ve seen the same from its predecessor. There’s also support for 25W fast charging which should fill the battery in no time at all.

Samsung Galaxy A70s Price in Nepal: Rs. 48,890
About the phone itself, clearly, it’s not that much of an upgrade, is it? One major improvement and possibly the best improvement is the 64MP camera. The previous generation was lacking a bit in terms of camera performance but A70s should improve upon it.
Even though the Samsung Galaxy A70s price in Nepal looks reasonable at Rs. 48,890, it runs the same Snapdragon 675 chipset which we can find in way cheaper smartphones like Redmi Note 7 Pro and Samsung M40.
For almost the same price we can get the Redmi K20 Pro. The K20 Pro has a beastly processor which frankly will chew the A70s to tiny bits. It provides even more flexibility with its 256GB variant. And smaller aspects like the faster in-display fingerprint scanner and 13MP ultrawide camera brings the lead to K20 Pro’s favor.
So, that’s all on our thoughts on the Galaxy A70s. What do you think about this device? Do let us know in the comments below.
