Seeing the Chinese smartphones selling like cookies, the Korean giant felt left out. The premium product card wasn’t going to play for too long, as reality began to kick in form of a depleted market share, Samsung had to revisit the blackboard.
Samsung began buzzing around to promote their budget-oriented series geared towards the millennial class of the market. Samsung used the sure shot formula to success for the Indian market with a massive screen and a massive battery.
Samsung finally launched the latest Galaxy M series in the form of Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 – Both look similar to a certain extent sporting the teardrop notch display which Samsung articulates as “Infinity V” Display.
The low spec Galaxy M10 comes with a 6.2-inch HD+ (720p) display. Internals include Samsung`s new Exynos 7870 processor which seems to pack enough punch. M10 sports a dual camera setup that boasts of a 13MP + 5MP sensor (f/1.9- aperture) with a 5MP sensor at the front assisted by a makeshift display-flash. Power comes from a 3400mAh battery pack.
The high spec Galaxy M20 comes with a 6.3-inch Full HD+(1080p). Internals include Samsung’s new Exynos 7904 octa-core processor, housing a 14nm design. M20 sports a dual camera setup with 13MP (f/1.9) + 95MP (f/2.2) sensor unit that supports a wide angle lens up to 120 degrees while an 8MP front-facing camera entails for good selfies. Powering M20 is a bigger 5000mAh battery unit.
Both the devices support fast charging and come with Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box, with Samsung Experience UX v9.5 skin on top. The devices support Widevine L1 certification with support for Dolby Atmos audio playback. Colour options include a subtle Ocean Blue and Charcoal Black.
