Samsung Galaxy M20’s FCC certification reveals waterdrop notch, other specs

“The Samsung M Series will be the new entry point to its smartphone portfolio, and the Galaxy M20 will reportedly sit in the middle of the lineup.”

Samsung’s all-new Galaxy M lineup is slowly starting to take shape. Presence of the Samsung Galaxy M20 was previously discussed in rumours, and now, the smartphone has been found to have received FCC certification in USA. The Galaxy M20 is reportedly the mid-variant in the new M series of phones, and the same has been corroborated by our source, who gave us an exclusive preview at the upcoming smartphone.

While the FCC certification validates our reports, it also gives an insight into what we can expect from it. As we reported before, the Samsung Galaxy M20 will feature a 6.13-inch Infinity-V display, with wide screen aspect ratio and a waterdrop notch that contains the front-facing camera. The front camera itself is expected to feature an 8-megapixel sensor, the make of which has not been confirmed yet. We also spotted an interesting touch to the phone, wherein it features a pulsating LED strip at the top edge of the display. This will presumably add to the aesthetics while doubling up as a notification alert, reminding us of the Sony Ericsson Xperia smartphones of yore.

In terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy M20 is expected to be powered by an Exynos 7904 SoC, which is a mid-range processor in Samsung’s lineup. Other specifications include 3GB of RAM, and storage variants of 32GB or 64GB. We also caught a first-hand glimpse of a back case for the Galaxy M20, where the dual-camera cutout was pretty evident. From what we’ve learnt so far, we expect to see a 13-megapixel + 5-megapixel camera layout at the rear. The Galaxy M20 is also expected to house a 5,000mAh battery — the biggest ever on a Samsung phone yet.

We have not managed to procure exact pricing details about the upcoming Galaxy M20, and the FCC certification doesn’t reveal much. That said, we expect it to be a budget offering, and be priced at around Rs 15,000. Watch this space for more details, for we are sure to see more aspects about the Galaxy M20 surface in the coming days.
