Samsung is set to unveil its very first Galaxy M series smartphones in India at an event on January 28. As recent leaks have shown, the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will feature a fresh new design with the company’s Infinity-V displays. Ahead of the launch event, we have obtained a live image showing the upcoming budget Android smartphone.
The Galaxy M20 live image confirms the smartphone sports a dual-camera setup on the back, with the two sensors stacked vertically. Below the dual rear cameras, we find a single LED flash module. Additionally, the live image confirms the presence of a fingerprint sensor on the back of the handset. In terms of hardware specifications, the handset will come with a 6.3-inch PLS LCD display with 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It will be running on a 14nm Exynos 7885 octa-core processor under the hood, paired with 3GB of RAM. The Galaxy M20 will also feature a 13MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back and a large 5000mAh capacity battery. It is rumored to be priced at INR 12,990 in India.
After facing cutthroat competition in the mid-range segment in the Indian smartphone market, Samsung is now gearing up to refresh its image. The South Korean giant is bringing a new mid-range series, Galaxy-M to cater to the budget segment with better specs than the J-series. The Galaxy M20 will be the first phone making way into the Galaxy-M series. This phone has already been teased on Amazon India, which will most likely be its exclusive online retailer. The Galaxy M20 is a mid-range phone featuring Infinity-V display, dual rear camera, fingerprint sensor, massive battery, and overhauled design. Unlike the phones that Samsung launched under the J-series, the Galaxy M20 will follow the latest design trends and will be stacked with significant features too.

Samsung Galaxy M20 Rumored Specifications
Going by the latest leaks, we expect the Galaxy M20 to sport a 6.13-inch Infinity-V display with Full HD+ resolution (1080×2340 pixels) and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Design-wise, it will rock a polycarbonate build. Under the hood, Galaxy M20 will be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7885 processor with 3GB of RAM. In terms of storage, the smartphone is likely to come in 32GB and 64GB variants.
In the camera department, rumors suggest the Galaxy M20 will sport a 13MP + 5MP dual-camera setup on the back and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. Both the front- and rear-facing cameras on the Galaxy M20 are expected to include various AI-powered features seen on the Galaxy Note 9 and a few other recent Galaxy smartphones. Its main selling point, however, is said to be a massive 5,000mAh capacity battery. As for software, all the upcoming Galaxy M series smartphones are likely to debut with Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box. We can expect Samsung to release the Android 9.0 Pie update for the smartphone a few weeks after it goes on sale. The Galaxy M20 will also feature a fingerprint sensor on the rear panel.
Galaxy M20 Could Be The Game Changer For Samsung
It’s been a while since Samsung refreshed its mid-range portfolio in a sensible manner. Almost all the phones launched under the J-series and A-series failed to garner a tremendous response in terms of sales. Samsung’s downfall in the segment is directly related to the winds of change in the Indian smartphone market, wherein brands like Xiaomi, Asus, Oppo, Realme, Honor, and others have raised the standard by offering great devices under a budget price tag. Samsung seems to have realized its shortcomings and is quite openly teasing the trendy features on the Galaxy M20 and is also boasting about the price tag that will cater to the segment. Going by the specs, we can expect the Galaxy M20 to be a game changer for Samsung. Of course, the fate of this device will be completely resting on the price tag that Samsung puts on it.
