“The upcoming Galaxy M series phone, which may be called Samsung Galaxy M50, will hit online and offline stores at the same time and at the same price”
Samsung is planning to refresh its online-exclusive Galaxy M series in India soon. The chaebol is gearing up to launch a new handset in the series, which so far includes as many as six affordable smartphones. 91mobiles has got hold of a Samsung notification to its retail partners, which reads “we look to provide the next M-series smartphone.“
While the details of the phone remain vague at the moment, a person associated with Samsung mobiles has informed us that it’ll most likely be the all-new Samsung Galaxy M50 smartphone. The handset will be a successor of the Galaxy M40 smartphone from earlier this year and is expected to launch on November 15th. Interestingly, the upcoming Galaxy M series offering is said to be available for sale in online as well as offline stores at the same time and at the same price tag.
All the previous Galaxy M series smartphones, for those unaware, were launched in the online market first – before making its way to the brick-and-mortar stores with a slightly higher price tag. Samsung – which is currently evaluating the “incremental value proposition for its consumers, channel partners, and retailers to take further action accordingly” – is yet to roll out the press invites for the event.
Since this is the first time the Samsung Galaxy M50 is making the headlines, the specifications remain unknown. However, we can expect the handset to be a notch better than the Galaxy M40, which rocks Snapdragon 675 mobile platform and a 6.3-inch full-HD+ punch-hole display. The phone runs Android 9 Pie-based One UI out of the box and houses a 3,500mAh battery with fast-charging support. For photography, there is 32-megapixel triple camera setup at the back and 16-megapixel snapper on the front for selfies and video calls.
