It’s been well over a month since Samsung’s new M-Series handsets the Galaxy M10, and the Galaxy M20 went on sale in the country. Both these handsets were available via flash sales on Amazon and Samsung’s own online store. Being the first budget, Samsung smartphone lineup that offered relatively competitive specs, the Galaxy M10 and the M20 were lapped up by Samsung fans in large numbers.
