Samsung plans to launch Galaxy M series this year which is a series for budget smartphones and it’s expected to launch in India before its global launch.
The decision to launch in India first is suspected to be a countermove against Xiaomi’s market in India that has been growing. According to Reuters, the head of Samsung’s Indian mobile business, Asim Warsi said that the company only plans on selling the Galaxy M series on its website and Amazon.com’s Indian operation and it will help to double its online sales.
The Galaxy M series will consist of M10, M20 and M30. The M20 is expected to come with a 5000mAh battery which is a first for the company. Besides that, the M20 is reported to have a 6.13-inch display with a waterdrop notch, and comes with 3GB RAM and up to 64GB storage.
The M10 on the other hand will sport a 6.02-inch display with 3GB RAM and up to 32GB storage. The battery size will be significantly less compared to the M20 because it’s expected to come with a 3400mAh battery.
That being said, all the information mentioned were just speculations, but Asim Warsi did state that the phones will come with large batteries with fast charging. The devices in the Galaxy M series is expected to be priced from 10,000 rupees to 20,000 rupees, which is around RM579 to RM1159.
