Samsung’s Galaxy A70 has a tall screen and in-display fingerprint sensor

The Samsung Galaxy A series of mid-range phones now has a higher-level option. It's called Samsung Galaxy A70, and its 6.7-inch screen with tear has an aspect ratio of 20: 9.

The phone's screens are getting larger, and the A70 aims to follow the trend while maintaining a comfortable fit when doing this phone higher instead of wider. More space on the A70's screen means more things can fit on the screen without the need to scroll. Sony's Xperia 1 and Xperia 10 phones use an even higher and thinner 21: 9 aspect ratio, but Samsung has a larger screen here.

The new A70 looks virtually identical to the Galaxy A50 that was announced at the MWC in February. Both have a triple-lens camera system on the back. Both also use Super AMOLED screens, and their bright backs are made of what Samsung calls "3D Glasstic." But thanks to the wider aspect ratio, the A70's screen almost reaches the bottom of the phone. Inside, it tops the rest of Samsung's A-series phones starting with 6GB of RAM and a massive 4,500 mAh battery.

The A70, as well as the A50, include a fingerprint sensor on the screen, a feature also found on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus. This feature on Samsung's flagship phones did not work very well, and in general, the on-screen sensor feels slower and more methodical than the sensors mounted on the back. It is difficult to imagine that the results of a cheaper phone could be better, but we reserve the criteria until it is published.

Information on prices and release date has not been announced for the A70, but Samsung is expected to share more details. in his clumsy headline "A Galaxy Event" on April 10.
