Earlier this month, a report had claimed that Samsung’s rumored Galaxy M20 and M10 smartphones will be launched in the Indian market soon. A new leak has now emerged online, which claims the Galaxy M20 may be the company’s most impressive budget Android smartphone yet, at least in terms of battery life.
Samsung Galaxy M20 Tipped to Pack a Massive 5000mAh Battery
As previous reports have suggested, the upcoming Galaxy M series smartphones are expected to be a vast improvement over the company’s previous offerings in the budget segment. According to the latest leak, Samsung’s Galaxy M20 will pack a massive 5000mAh capacity battery, which should give it a clear edge over most of the competition in the battery life department. Samsung’s last smartphone to pack such a massive battery was the Galaxy A9 Pro, which was released more than two years back.
Previous leaks have suggested the Galaxy M20 may be powered by an Exynos 7885 octa-core processor under the hood, coupled with 3GB of RAM. The smartphone’s display size has not been confirmed yet, although it is expected to use an IPS LCD panel with a waterdrop-style notch at the top. A waterdrop-style notch would obviously mean the smartphone will have a more impressive screen-to-body ratio than the current budget Galaxy J-series smartphones. The rest of the handset’s key specifications are yet to be revealed. On the software front, both the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 are expected to be launched with Android Oreo-based Samsung Experience UX out of the box. An update to Android Pie will probably be rolled out sometime early next year for the two smartphones.
Samsung has reportedly started mass production of the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones in India, which means we can expect both models to be formally launched in the country soon. In terms of pricing, a recent leak had claimed the Galaxy M10 would be priced around the INR 10,000 mark while the Galaxy M20 could be priced closer to INR 15,000. The Galaxy M20 is expected to take on popular budget Android smartphones such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 6 Pro, Realme 2 Pro, and the Nokia 6.1 Plus (review).
