Samsung will soon launch a new line of smartphones under the Galaxy M series. The Galaxy M is said to be the result of a merger of the Galaxy J, Galaxy On, and Galaxy C series. The first smartphone under the series, the Galaxy M20 has appeared on Geekbench.
The Galaxy M20 was benchmarked yesterday. It appears on the benchmark site as the “samsung SM-M205F”, running Android 8.1 Oreo and powered by an Exynos 7885 processor paired with 3GB of RAM.
The Exynos 7885 is a 14nm octa-core chipset with 2 Cortex-A73 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and 6 Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz. It has a Mali-G71 MP2 GPU, Bluetooth 5.0, and support for LTE Cat. 12 3CA download and LTE Cat. 13 2CA upload speeds. On paper, the Exynos 7885 should offer better performance than the Snapdragon 630 and the Snapdragon 632 processors.
The benchmark result shows the Galaxy M20 scored 1319 points in the single-core test and 4074 points in the multi-core test. While the multi-core test score is similar to that of the Snapdragon 630 (Nokia 6.1 used to compare), the Exynos 7885 has a much higher single-core score.
There is no info on a release date for the phone and there is still a lot we don’t know about the phone save for the fact that it will come in 32GB and 64GB variants.
