It was exactly one year ago that Samsung introduced its now popular Galaxy M Series devices in India. The M-Series lineup from last year included handsets like the Galaxy M10, M20, M30, and the M40. Samsung also came up with mid-life upgrades to some of these handsets in the form of the Galaxy M10s, M20s, and the M30s. In 2020, Samsung is expected to overhaul the M-Series lineup with several new handsets. Just a few days ago, we had reported about the fact that Samsung is set to launch four new M-Series phones in India soon. These new handsets include the Galaxy M11, M21, M31, and the M51. Details regarding the specifications of these handsets were scant back then. However, folks over at 91 Mobiles recently posted an image that they claim is the camera module of the Galaxy M31.

Samsung Galaxy M31 Camera Module: What does it reveal?

Earlier rumors around the Samsung Galaxy M31 talked about the possibility of the phone sporting a triple camera setup at the rear with the main camera using a 48-megapixel sensor. However, this new leaked camera module has five circular cutouts which seems to indicate that the M31 will feature a quad-camera setup with fourth cutout housing the LED flash. By the looks of it, the M30 will feature an L-shaped camera array at the rear.

91 Mobile adds that the image of this camera cutout was provided to them by a ‘reliable industry source who wishes to remain anonymous”. Do note that we still do not have additional details pertaining to the camera setup on the M31 but we can expect at least a 48MP primary sensor, a wide-angle camera, and either a telephoto or a macro camera. Samsung could use its own Exynos 9611 SoC or Qualcomm/s Snapdragon 665 chipset on the Galaxy M31 with at least 6GB of RAM. We already know that the phone would be offered in a red color option.
