According to the American site MySmartPrice, the Wi-Fi Alliance organization has certified a new smartphone produced by the South Korean giant, device "filed" with the model number SM-707F and that should be the long-awaited Galaxy A70s.

The Galaxy A70 has recently been released on the Italian market, but Samsung is already working to launch an enhanced version, especially in the photographic compartment. In fact, the Galaxy A70s should mount the 64-megapixel lens produced by the same South Korean company and that initially will be exclusive to the Redmi Note 8, smartphone from Xiaomi. (due out on August 29). The Galaxy A70s should share with the previous model the design with a small central notch where the camera is embedded.

Samsung Galaxy A70s: the photo compartment

At first glance, the new Galaxy A70s seems to follow by a thread all the features and technical specifications of its superior model, but it is not so. The main difference lies in the photographic compartment that sees the debut of the 64 MegaPixel Bright GW1 sensor. The Bright GW1 sensor uses Tetracell technology that can "fuse" multiple pixels together, 4 in 1 to be exact, and using special algorithms can produce images of the size of 16 MegaPixel in low light conditions and 64 MegaPixel in optimal light conditions. The Galaxy A70s should replace the 32 MegaPixel main camera with the more powerful and high-performance 64 MegaPixel one, while the remaining two should be the same as already seen on the Galaxy A50s i.e. an 8 MegaPixel wide-angle lens with f/2 focal aperture.2 and a third sensor from 5 MegaPixel dedicated exclusively to the depth of field with aperture always f/2.2.
