Samsung is soon going to launch an all-new M-series for budget and mid-range smartphones in the Indian market. As per the reports, the South Korean giant will launch two phones under its M-series, which could possibly be named Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20.
Ahead of the official announcement, a couple of images of the Galaxy M20’s cover shows that the phone will come with a dual rear camera setup and a 3.5mm headphone jack at the bottom. Earlier, an image leaked online showcasing the phone’s front panel which revealed that it will have a notched display.
The camera sensors are placed vertically in the top-left corner along with an LED flash. There’s also another cutout in the top-center position, which possibly is for the fingerprint sensor. It is expected to come with a USB Type-C port at the bottom.
The Samsung Galaxy M20 is rumored to be powered by the Samsung’s own Exynos 7885 upper mid-range processor, coupled with 3GB RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. The device is said to feature a Full-HD+ screen resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels with an unknown screen size and will be running Android Oreo operating system out-of-the-box.
The company has reportedly started mass production of both the smartphones in India, suggesting that the official launch of the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 is imminent. Recently, we reported that the smartphones will be priced aggressively to win the highly-competitive budget smartphone segment in India.
According to the report, the Samsung Galaxy M10 could be priced under Rs. 10,000 (approximately $142) while the Samsung Galaxy M20 could be priced around Rs. 15,000, which roughly converts to $213. Considering the aggressive pricing, it won’t be surprising if Samsung keeps the M-series as an online-only smartphone series.
While the company has not yet revealed the launch date or availability information of the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones, we expect the phones to go official early next year, possibly during CES 2019 or MWC 2019.
