With the Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 in the works and many of specs leaking about, it is evident that they’re coming. These two phones are actually set to be unveiled on January 28 in India as an Amazon exclusive. The phones will also make their way, here, but of course, they will probably be sold offline here. But no matter what, these new Samsung entrants in the budget category is interesting.
Mostly, because the M-series is going to replace the existing or soon-to-be-extinct Galaxy J, Galaxy C and Galaxy On series. All of those three smartphone segments combined into one will not only simplify the phone naming convention. And also, should also rectify the mistakes seen in them.
Nevertheless, we now have new rumors from the closest of Samsung’s pricing sources about the price of these two phones. And earlier, there were speculations that the Galaxy M10 would cost below $150, which is now confirmed by these price leaks. As suggested, the Galaxy M10 will cost about $125, give or take a few dollars; whereas the Galaxy M20 will be a bit more expensive. The Galaxy M20 will cost around $180. The source of these leaks confirms the Indian pricing for these phones as well, which is very close to these numbers.
In India, the Galaxy M10 will cost INR. 8,990 and the Galaxy M20 will cost INR. 12,990. For the price, the phones are quite justified it seems. Because this is Samsung’s strategy to make its presence more prominent in the budget segment. As for the Nepali market, phones generally tend to be expensive here due to these reasons. But even so, the Galaxy M10 will be priced below Rs.20000 here. We cannot be sure about the Galaxy M20, however.
Galaxy M10 will feature a 6.2″ HD+ Infinity-V display (Samsung’s fancy way of saying tear-drop notch), dual cameras at the back comprising 13 + 5 MP sensors, Exynos 7872 chip, 2 or 3 GB RAM variants and a 3400 mAh battery. The Galaxy M20 will have a slightly larger 6.3″ FHD+ Infinity-V display. It will have a similar camera setup at the back with the front camera being 8 MP. The SoC will be Exynos 7885, will have 3 GB RAM, and a large 5000 mAh battery. It will come in 32 / 64 GB storage variants.
So, what do you think of these upcoming Samsung budget phones? Did they get it right this time, or are there much better options out there? Do let us know.
