On the front, there is a 6.3-inches FHD+ TFT LCD 19:9 Display without any bezel or distraction and just a Puch Hole Camera on top left.

On the back, there is a Vertical Triple Camera Setup, Flash, Fingerprint Sensor and Samsung Branding.

The device is completely made up of plastic with Glass Like Finish to make it look premium.

Camera Department

The triple camera setup at the back consists of a 32-Megapixel Primary shooter with an aperture of f/1.7, another 5-Megapixel Shooter for Depth Sensing and another 8-Megapixel Shooter with f/2.2 Aperture for Wide Angle shots.

Both the cameras perform brilliantly, Dynamic Range was really good and we were able to capture a perfect picture overall. Balanced Saturation, White Balance and Color Science.

Whereas on the front, there is a 16-Megapixel shooter with f/2.0 aperture for selfies. Which was decent but can be improved.

Market Competition

At the price of ₹19,999 this phone directly competes with Poco F1 and the upcoming Redmi K20 which are master of their own.

Although Poco F1 comes with IPS LCD Display, it is far better than the TFT Panel on M40.

But if you are not a tech geek, you will find Samsung Galaxy M40 better due to its completely bezel-less design and punch hole camera.

Performance wise, there is no way for Samsung Galaxy M40 to survive. Snapdragon 845 on the Poco F1 directly kills Snapdragon 675 on M40.

Not only that, cameras on Poco F1 are way better than the cameras on M40.

Coming to Redmi k20, its an upgraded version of Poco F1 and even offers Completely Bezel-Less AMOLED Display on top with Pop-Up Camera, that makes it way better than Samsung Galaxy M40.

Our Opinions

Redmi K20 is no brainer.
