The Samsung Galaxy A70 features a 6.7″ Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display. There’s a small notch at the top that houses a 32MP selfie camera. Under the hood, it runs on a Snapdragon 675 processor and for Malaysia, we are getting the higher 8GB RAM + 128GB storage and you can expect the storage further via a microSD card.

For taking pictures, the Galaxy A70 comes with a triple camera setup which consists of a 32MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5MP depth camera for bokeh effects. The device also has an in-display fingerprint sensor and it also supports Face Unlock.

Powering the Galaxy A70 is a huge 4,500mAh battery and it supports a higher 25W Super Fast Charge via USB-C. Out of the box it runs on Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung’s latest OneUI interface. You can check out our hands-on with the Galaxy A70 in the video below:

As spotted on SIRIM’s certification, it appears that the Galaxy A70 for Malaysia does not come with NFC, and that means it won’t be supporting Samsung Pay. If you’re looking for a mid-range device with Samsung Pay, you could consider the Galaxy A9 (2018) which is currently going for RM1,399. It comes with a 6.3″ Full HD+ display, a Snapdragon 660 processor and it has a quad-camera setup for the rear.
