Samsung has finally announced its new Galaxy M series with India being the first market. The company is most likely to launch the Samsung Galaxy M10, Samsung Galaxy M20, and the Samsung Galaxy M30 smartphones, and catch the live streaming of the launch event on GizBot. As the company has already confirmed, all three smartphones will be available exclusively on Amazon. The Galaxy M10 with 2GB RAM +16GB storage is priced at Rs 7,990, while the 3GB RAM+32GB storage variant will set you back by Rs 8,990. It comes with either 2GB RAM + 16GB storage or 3GB RAM + 32GB storage which are also expandable via microSD.
The smartphone will feature 2/3 GB of RAM with 16/32 GB of internal storage with a dedicated micro SD card slot for additional storage expansion. Otherwise, the M20 offers the same 13MP+5MP ultra wide rear camera pairing seen on its cheaper stablemate.
Samsung has packed a 5000 mAh battery in Galaxy M20 and the power management feature in it includes a multi-layered technology system to further improve battery life. The device also comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, and it is priced at Rs 12,990. While we feel that the mid-range Exynos SoCs might not be on par with the newer Snapdragon 636 and 660 processors, the Galaxy M series is still packing a whole lot more for your money compared to its previous Galaxy J series. They also come with a 13-megapixel primary rear camera that has f/1.9 aperture, while the secondary camera is a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens. The Galaxy M10 is powered by a 3,400 mAh battery.
The Galaxy M20 gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and there's also the option to use Face Unlock for quicker access. An 8-megapixel sensor along with an f/2.0 aperture is available at the front. Galaxy M20 features a 6.3-inch FHD+ display, while Galaxy M10 has 6.2-inch screen.
With the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, Samsung seems to have changed its strategy for good.
As consumers are getting spoilt by great smartphone options at affordable prices, Samsung knew that it has to do something in this growing affordable segment.
According to Samsung, the Galaxy M series is targeted at millennials and they will be releasing several models throughout the year. The latter price pits the M20 squarely against devices like Xiaomi's Redmi Note series and the ~$197 Realme 2 Pro.
