This year we saw Samsung add Galaxy M51 to its M-series of smartphones. There was no M50 to begin it and it was a replacement for the M41. And now the company will be adding another new model to the series next year. The upcoming Galaxy M62 is reported to be the company’s most powerful Galaxy M-series smartphone yet. Let’s check out all the rumors, leaks, specs, and expected launch date of the Samsung Galaxy M62.
Samsung Galaxy M62 Rumor Roundup
According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung is now working on a new M-series device with a model number of SM-M625F. The phone is said to be launched under the Galaxy M62 moniker. It will be the highest tier M-series smartphone. At present, the title is held by the Galaxy M51.
Since the phone will launch only launch next year, the information about its specs and features are scarce. However, the phone will likely feature a whopping 256GB of internal storage. We will have to wait to see if it will be the only storage option or not. Still, the 256GB option greater than anything we have seen in the M-series until now. The M51 maxes out at 128GB internal storage.
Rest of the specs
Talking about the specs, it is likely to come with a flat AMOLED display with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. We can at least expect the 7,000mAh battery that we saw in the M51. Similarly, Samsung could include 25W wired fast charging too.
It is interesting to see if the company decides to better the Snapdragon 730G that is on the M51; most likely not. Samsung has been heavily criticized for using its in-house Exynos chips in most of the M-series smartphone. Evidently, it has overused the 10nm based Exynos 9611 SoC. For instance: Galaxy M21, M31, M31s, F41, and M21s, which were all released in 2020 feature the same silicon.
Samsung Galaxy M62 Launch & Availability (Expected)
Given the launch strategy of Samsung, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy M62 to launch in the first half of 2021. Samsung usually launched the vanilla M and A-series device in the first half and the ‘s’ variants in the next half.
