South Korean tech giant Samsung has just launched the Galaxy M44 smartphone in its home country be it under a different name. The “Galaxy Jump 3” which will likely be called the ‘Galaxy M44’ globally houses the powerful Snapdragon 888 chipset among other things. In this article, let’s talk about the Samsung Galaxy M44 including its design, full specs, and expected price in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy M44 Overview:
Under the hood, the Galaxy M44 has a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SOC.
It is an octa-core processor announced on December 1, 2020. Fabbed under the 5nm process, this SoC has a prime Cortex-X1 core clocked at 2.8 GHz, 3 performance Cortex-A78 cores at 2.4 GHz, and 4 efficiency Cortex-A55 cores at 1.8 GHz. Alongside the CPU cores, the chip features an Adreno 660 GPU and an X60 5G modem baseband.
Complementing the processor, you get 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage with support for further expansion via a MicroSD card.
Design and Display
The design of the Samsung Galaxy M44 is nothing out of the ordinary. It has a water-drop notch with noticeable bezels up front and features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor.
As for the display, it is a 120 Hz IPS LCD panel which is unfortunately a downgrade from last year’s AMOLED one. The FHD+ panel (1080 x 2408) is the same size at 6.5 inches and has an 8-bit color depth.
Moving on to the cameras, you get a triple shooter setup consisting of 50MP primary and 2MP depth and macro lenses. Unfortunately, the cameras also see a downgrade as there is no ultrawide camera, and there’s no OIS either. On the front, you see a 13MP selfie cam with an aperture of f /2.0.
Battery and More
Fueling the Jump 3 (hopefully M44) smartphone is a 5000 mAh battery which is slightly smaller than the 6000 mAh cell on the M34. The charging speed stays the same at a modest 25W. And like with their other midrange options, Samsung promises 3 years of OS updates and 4 years of security patches.
