“The Samsung Galaxy M20 is expected to be the brand’s first smartphone with a waterdrop notch”
Several reports in the past have suggested that Samsung is planning to launch its brand new Galaxy M series of budget and mid-range smartphones in India soon. Most recently, we reported you that mass production of the upcoming phones in the series, allegedly called the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, has started in the country, apart from leaking the front panel of the latter device. Now, 91mobiles is back with more exclusive details regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M series handsets.
From industry sources close to the development of upcoming Samsung handsets, 91mobiles has learnt that the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones will be priced competitively in India. The former will be priced below Rs 10,000, while the latter is said to cost under Rs 15,000 in the country. Our source suggests that Indian consumers think that Samsung devices can be priced better, especially in the wake of the competition from the Chinese brands. Thus, the vendor will be pricing its upcoming M series phones much more aggressively than its Galaxy J and Galaxy On series models. It’s possible that Samsung may sell these handsets exclusively via online stores considering the competitive price points.
According to earlier reports, the Samsung Galaxy M10 will be a budget offering with the brand’s in-house Exynos 7870 octa-core SoC. The phone could come with 3GB of RAM, 16GB / 32GB storage variants, and Android Oreo. The Galaxy M20 variant is rumoured to arrive with an Exynos 7885 processor, aided by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. The device is said to feature a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels with an unknown screen size, and boot Android Oreo, just like the Galaxy M10.
Unfortunately, we don’t have many details regarding the pricing of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones at the moment. However, we can expect that the Korean tech giant will be revealing more details regarding these devices in early 2019.
