Samsung M40 has officially been launched in India after a series of teasers and rumours. The new Galaxy M-series phone is set to go on sale starting June 18 with a competitive price tag of Rs. 19,990. Key highlights of the Samsung M40 include a full-HD+ Infinity-O Display, triple rear camera setup, and octa-core Snapdragon 675 SoC. The smartphone is also the first in its segment to sport a "screen sound" technology that enables the display panel to produce audio vibrations — without requiring a dedicated earpiece. The Samsung M40 makes the competition tougher for companies such as HMD Global, Realme, and Xiaomi that target customers with products priced under the Rs. 20,000 bracket in the country. Read on for more details about the Samsung Galaxy M40 price in India, availability details, and its specifications.

Airtel is also claimed to offer 100 percent additional data for a period of 10 months for its consumers purchasing the Samsung Galaxy M40. The consumers will get 4GB data per day on the Rs. 249 recharge that brings an additional 560GB data over 10 months. However, users on the Rs. 349 plan will receive 6GB data per day with a benefit of additional 840GB data over 10 months.

Notably, the Rs. 19,990 price of the Samsung Galaxy M40 brings it to the market that already has the top-end variants of the Realme 3 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro as well as the regular options of the Nokia 7.1 and Poco F1. The South Korean company is targeting the new phone at "tech-savvy millennials and Gen Z" customers.
