Samsung Galaxy M series is the latest lineup of smartphones from Samsung. This series is set to fight head-on with its budget competitors from the likes of Xiaomi and other brands.
Samsung phones have constantly avoided the display notch and have instead opted for their so-called infinity displays. However, with the Samsung Galaxy M series, they are adapting the notch into their design to appeal to the notch driven consumer market. That said, Samsung is a bit shy to admit it to be a notch. Instead, they call it an Infinity V display!
Samsung Galaxy M Series
Samsung Galaxy M10
The Samsung Galaxy M10 houses a 6.2-inch HD+ Infinity-V display with a 19:9 aspect ratio. The phone is powered by the Exynos 7870 Octa processor and a Mali-T830 MP1 GPU. The phone comes with two different RAM and internal storage configurations:
2GB RAM & 16GB storage: Rs. 7,990 (INR)
3GB RAM & 32GB storage: Rs. 8,990 (INR)
The infinity V notch packs a single 5MP selfie shooter with an f/2.0 aperture at the front. At the rear end, Samsung M10 has a dual camera setup with a pair of 13 MP, f/1.9 and 5MP sensors. It also has a 3400 mAh battery for powering the phone through the day.
Samsung Galaxy M20
The Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with a larger 6.3 inch 1080p Infinity-V display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a more powerful Exynos 7904 processor and comes with the following configurations:
3GB RAM & 32 GB storage: Rs. 10,990 (INR)
4GB RAM & 64 GB storage: Rs. 12,990 (INR)
The phone also has a dual camera setup with a 13MP, f/1.9 primary sensor, and a 5 MP f/2.2 depth sensor. At the front, there’s an 8MP shooter for your selfies. The phone house a large 5,000 mAh battery that should ensures longer battery life.
One welcome feature addition to this phone is the incorporation of USB Type-C port at this budget segment. The phone should also support fast charging and comes box-packed with a 15W wall charging adapter.
Samsung Galaxy M30 (unreleased)
Samsung M30 is not in the market yet but should launch in the Indian market in the near future. The phone features an upgraded Exynos 7885 chipset with 4GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. It is also powered by a 5000 mAh battery similar to the M20 and is expected to deliver a long battery life.
M30 sets itself apart from the rest with its superior optics. The phone comes with a triple-camera setup which packs a variety of sensors including a 13MP main sensor, a 5MP depth sensor (similar to other dual camera set up) and an additional 5MP wide-angle sensor. This provides a wider focal range to the users. This will come in handy for wider landscape shots or group photos. For selfies, it has a 16 MP sensor at the front and should follow the design aesthetics similar to the rest of the M series lineup.
Samsung M30 packs a similar 6.38-inch FULL HD+ display, however with a different display technology i.e. IPS LCD. The cheaper models use TFT technology for its display which comes with its own set of ups and downs. Based on these upgraded specs, we can expect the M30 to be more expensive than it’s inexpensive siblings.
