With an aim to regain the lost market share, Samsung launched the Galaxy M-Series of phones in India. Till now, the company has launched three phones called the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and Galaxy M30, and there are rumours that the South Korean company will launch the fourth phone in the series soon. According to several media reports, Samsung will launch the Galaxy M40 on June 11, however, industry sources have told Digit that the phone in question will not launch on the said date. Though, they did confirm that the phone will be unveiled in the first half of June.

A lot of information about the phone's internals have already been leaked. A previous report claimed that the Samsung Galaxy M40 will tout 128GB onboard storage. The handset has already been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance and the certification revealed that it would be the first device in the series to come with Android Pie out-of-the-box. It was also reported that the phone will reportedly bear SM-M405F model number. Incidentally, a device with the same model number was spotted on Geekbench as well.

The above-mentioned certification and benchmarking websites highlighted that under the hood, the phone will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chipset, coupled with 6GB of RAM. The Snapdragon 675 can be seen as a major upgrade over the Exynos 7904 that powers both the Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30. There are rumours that the phone may offer a 5,000 mAh battery and a Super AMOLED display. It may sport a triple-rear camera setup, and just like the previous three devices, it is speculated that the phone could launch in India first.

YouTuber Technical Guruji has also revealed a few details about the Galaxy M40. According to a video, the phone will sport an Infinity-O display, which basically a display with punch-hole. The video suggests that the phone will feature a triple camera setup, placed vertically, and a fingerprint sensor in the centre of the back panel. There is also a mention of Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 processor. These specs are the same that have been reported so far, however, Digit advises that readers should wait for an official confirmation from the company.
