Samsung has launched its new Galaxy M Series in India, in a bid to compete against Chinese competitors like Xiaomi. The both Android smartphones, the M10 and M20, both have Samsung’s new “Infinity-V” teardrop display, and are designed to be successors to the A series of handsets. Samsung is clearly focusing on the millennials with the Samsung Galaxy M, and the company has partnered with Amazon India during its launch.
The Samsung Galaxy M20 has a 6.3-inch display (1080 × 2340) with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and it’s powered by the new Exynos 7904 quad-core processor. Samsung is offering two variants of the Samsung Galaxy M20, with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, or 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Surprisingly, Samsung is added a 5,000 mAh battery on the Galaxy M20, which will give the phone a very huge battery life for such a budget-friendly smartphone.
It is evident that Samsung has finally jumped on the notch trend despite their initial outcry.
In other words, Samsung is about to go from come up with a new phone.
To having something similar to this:
To be fair, this is not inspired by iPhone X notch, rather it goes in line with the teardrop notch that was seen on the OnePlus 6t.
And I think it was intentional:
As noted by the the Verge, the Galaxy M series is Samsung’s answer to losing their top spot in India to Xiaomi.
Although the price hasn’t been revealed yet, a Samsung India executive told Reuters that the phones under the series would cost between 10,000 and 20,000 rupees ($140 to $280 USD), that is about N50,000 – N100,000.
As for the specifications, this would come with two rear-facing cameras, a USB Type-C port with fast charging support, and a 5000mAh battery. One of the devices —the M20—would have a 6.3-inch 2340 x 1080 LCD display, 13MP and 15MP rear cameras, and an Android 8.1 OS
Of course, only time will tell if this could make the Indians into ditching their Xiaomi phones and going for samsung m series, but do you think these devices have what it takes to tempt Nigerians?
