The first sale took place on June 18 and saw the Galaxy M40 going out of stock in minutes, which seems to suggest that consumers have taken to the phone’s unique Infinity-O punch-hole display.The Galaxy M40 is priced at Rs 19,990 in India and comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. This makes it the most expensive Galaxy M phone yet. Some offers on Amazon India include up to Rs 1,500 instant discount on ICICI Bank Credit and Debit Card on EMI transactions.Samsung Galaxy M40 specificationsThe Galaxy M40 is the first in its segment to offer a punch-hole display. It sports a 6.3-inch FHD+ (2340×1080) Infinity-O LCD display with Gorilla Glass protection and 91 per cent screen ratio. The rear panel is a 3D glasstic shell that comes in glossy gradient colours that includes Midnight Blue and Seawater Blue.Another USP of the Galaxy M40 is that it is the first phone in the Galaxy M series to ship with a Snapdragon 675 chipset. The 2GHz octa-core processor is paired with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage, which can be further expanded up to 512GB via a microSD card. Another draw is the triple camera setup that includes a 32-megapixel primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra wide-angle camera with a 123-degree FoV, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The Galaxy M40 also offers a 16-megapixel selfie camera that rests under the punch-hole cutout.advertisementUnlike the Galaxy M30 that houses a large 5,000mAh battery, the Galaxy M40 gets a smaller 3,500mAh capacity. The phone supports 15W fast charging and ships with One UI based on Android 9 Pie.Should you buy the Galaxy M40?Before you head over to Amazon to purchase the Galaxy M40, there are a few things to keep in mind. While the device offers an attractive Infinity-O display, it is nonetheless an LCD panel rather than AMOLED. The Galaxy A50 and the more affordable Galaxy M30 offer Super AMOLED displays in comparison.The Galaxy M40 also comes without a headphone jack, which may disappoint audiophiles who own quality wired earphones. The Galaxy M40 also comes with a smaller battery compared to the Galaxy M30 and Galaxy A50, which means one shouldn’t expect the battery life to last beyond a full day.Samsung’s latest Galaxy M phone offers a smooth, lag-free performance thanks to the Snapdragon 675 paired with plenty of RAM and an optimised One UI software. The phone also offers a versatile 32MP triple camera setup, which is decent when shooting in daylight conditions. If you’re looking for raw performance, last year’s Poco F1 still hold strong today. If you’re looking for a better display, then you’re better off going with the Galaxy A50, which is currently available for as low as Rs 18,490.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy A50 at Rs 18,490: Should you buy it over Galaxy M40?ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy M40 review: A unique display but Galaxy A50 offers a lot moreGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Shower with Beer: Duke Cannon Beer Soap

first_imgDuke Cannon is a brand any self-respecting American man needs to know, and know intimately. That’s because this is personal hygiene brand, and personal hygiene is intimate stuff. But don’t confuse intimacy and delicacy, because there’s nothing delicate about Duke Cannon, whose mission statement can be summarized by this excerpt from their site:“As any historian worth his salt will tell you, this country was built by folks with a sense of purpose. Duke Cannon’s purpose is simple: to make superior-quality grooming goods that meet the high standards of hard-working men. Our products are tested by soldiers, not boy bands. And they’re made in a little place we like to call the United States of America. We value things like hard work, family, community, bacon and country; we champion builders, creators, sledge hammerers, holders of doors and fixers of toilets.”In other words, Duke Cannon has no time for “weak, watered down” body washes that “smell like a high school dance” or “bubble gum-flavored lip balm in dainty little tubes.” No, these are big, bold, personal care products manufactured to “meet the needs of 12-hour work days, not 45-minute tennis lessons.” And they’re products with awesome names, like Trench Warfare Body and Foot Powder and Best Damn Beard Balm.Now, would you pay more for a shampoo because it has a name like News Anchor Hair Wash and certified that “your hair is a weapon … that commands the respect of others” or a shower soap called Naval Supremacy designed for “hard-working men [who] require a shower of substance to accomplish a full day’s work?” You might, right?Well good news, you don’t have to.Duke Cannon products may come with some charmingly inflated rhetoric, but they don’t come with highfalutin price tags. The company’s products, which span from shaving and beard care products to hair styling products to lip and knuckle balms, are decidedly male-oriented and are of high quality, yet they are more than affordable for daily use. I should know, as I use several of them daily. (And maybe it’s the power of suggestion, but I’d say my shower gel really does rather smell like naval supremacy as they say. Or maybe it’s just bergamot.)The Duke Cannon brand persona is manly and swaggering and largely tongue in cheek, but they back up their bravado with more than a slew of fine personal grooming products. They liaise directly with active duty soldiers, using military men as their focus group for product testing and donating a share of profits to charitable groups working with veterans.Also, the Big Ass Brick of Soap that comes in scents including Campfire, American Bourbon, Fresh Cut Pine, and more is directly modeled after the bars of soap issued to American GIs during the Korean War, and is made in the very same factory that supplied much of the soap to our soldiers back in that era.And if you’re looking for a great gift for that manly man you call husband, dad, son, bro, or… uh… Chet, Duke Cannon has you (and Chet) covered there, too: their gift bundles are a great deal and are brilliantly packaged.Shop Now The Best Food Shows on Netflix to Binge Right Now How to Grow a Beard: It’s Not Just a Look, It’s a Philosophy How to Shave With a Straight Razor The Ultimate Guide on How to Shape a Beard Editors’ Recommendations The Barbershop Renaissance and Men’s Grooming Revolution, According to Fellow Barber’s Sam Buffalast_img read more
