Amazon has started teasing Samsung’s upcoming India-first Galaxy M-series ahead of its January 28 launch. The notify-me page for the Samsung Galaxy M-series, which has just gone live on Amazon India, drops major Easter eggs in relation to key hardware specs of the soon-to-launch Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 phones. A third device in the series, called the Galaxy M30, will come later.
Samsung’s Galaxy M-series phones will reportedly feature a 6.4-inch Infinity-V display. The notify-me page confirms the latter: the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will indeed come with an Infinity-V display which appears to be Samsung’s take on the waterdrop-style notch.
There is no word on whether the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 would boast of the same screen resolution as well: Samsung is generally known to offer 720p screens in its more budget offerings while its mid-tier devices usually hover around the 1080p figure.
Samsung’s Galaxy M-series devices are further expected to pack huge batteries – to the tune of 5,000mAh – and the notify-me page confirms that the series will feature fast charging via USB Type-C. It is yet to be seen if both the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will have this feature, or if it would be limited to the more expensive Galaxy M20.
The notify-me page also confirms presence of dual rear cameras, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and what is claimed to be a “powerful processor to up your game” on the Galaxy M-series phones. Again, it does not mention if both the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will have all of this, or if features like dual rear cameras would be limited to the higher-priced Galaxy M20.
The Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will be sold exclusively via online channels like Amazon India and Samsung’s own e-retail store. Prices will range from just under Rs 10,000 for the entry-level Galaxy M10 model while the Galaxy M20 is expected to cost under Rs 20,000.
“Samsung's new range of Galaxy M smartphones come with powerful display, powerful camera, powerful battery and a powerful processor helping the smartphones deliver power-packed performance for young millennials,” Samsung says about its upcoming Galaxy M line-up.
