Other key highlights of the Samsung Galaxy A70s include an Infinity-U Display as well as the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC. The smartphone also comes with a triple rear camera setup.
The Samsung Galaxy A70s price in India has been dropped from Rs. 28,999 to Rs. 25,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, as visible on the Samsung India online store. The price of the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage option of the Galaxy A70s has also been slashed to Rs. 27,999. It was launched at Rs. 30,999.
