Samsung is rumored to be working on a new Galaxy M line of smartphones, which will replace the company’s current Galaxy J, Galaxy On, and Galaxy C budget lineups. One of the two upcoming Galaxy M series smartphones, the Galaxy M20 has now surfaced on the popular Geekbench benchmark database, revealing a few key specifications.
Samsung Galaxy M20 Geekbench Listing Reveals Exynos 7885 SoC, 3GB of RAM
The Samsung Galaxy M20 (SM-M205F) Geekbench listing reveals the smartphone will be powered by an octa-core Exynos 7885 chipset under the hood. Samsung uses the 14nm Exynos 7885 in quite a few of its mid-range smartphones, including the Galaxy A8 (2018) and Galaxy A8 Plus (2018). The Galaxy A7 (2018) with a triple-camera setup at the rear also happens to be powered by the same chipset. However, unlike most other smartphones powered by the Exynos 7885, the Galaxy M20 variant spotted on Geekbench is equipped with 3GB of RAM. In terms of performance, the Galaxy M20 managed a single-core score of 1,319 and a multi-core score of 4,074 points. Both the scores are slightly on the lower side when compared to the Galaxy A8 (2018) and other smartphones powered by the same chipset. In terms of software, the Galaxy M20 is currently being tested on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.
Going by a previous leak, the Galaxy M20 will be available in 32GB and 64GB storage variants. Samsung Galaxy M30, on the other hand, is expected to be offered in 64GB and 128GB storage variants. As of now, there isn’t much else that we know about the Galaxy M series smartphones. Since the M series is expected to replace Samsung’s current budget lineup, we can expect the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30 to come with Infinity Displays and dual rear cameras. The first Galaxy M series smartphones are expected to be released by the end of this year or early next year. We can look forward to seeing the Galaxy M20 and other M series Galaxy smartphones appear on a few other benchmark databases in the coming weeks.
