Samsung launched the Galaxy M series in India to take on Xiaomi – there are no two ways about it. Samsung, in fact, borrowed a page from Xiaomi’s book and used its much-loathed flash sales model to sell the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 in India, at least during the initial run. The company is now going back to the good-old open sales model which means you can now buy the Samsung Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 round the clock.
The Galaxy M20 starts at Rs 10,990 for the base 3GB RAM and 32GB storage variant, going all the way to Rs 12,990 for the top-end variant with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The Galaxy M10 starts at Rs 7,990 for the base 2GB RAM and 16GB storage variant, going all the way to Rs 8,990 for the top-end variant with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage. The phones are online-only and is exclusive to Amazon India and Samsung’s own e-store.
The Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 went on sale for the first time in India on February 5. They were sold out soon enough although Samsung did not give out the number of units that were made available for buying. “The inaugural sale of Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, built for India’s millennials, saw millions of consumers logging into Amazon.in and Samsung.com to be the first to own these powerful devices. It was a big day one for Galaxy M. Response in terms of record traffic and sales on Amazon.in and Samsung.com reaffirms the excitement for Galaxy M amongst consumers," Samsung had said in a press statement.
The same story continued in subsequent sales as Samsung managed to sell all the units in a jiffy – also generating a lot of hype around its new budget Galaxy M-series. All this changes now, of course, now that the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 are available through open sale in the country.
The Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 bring many industry firsts for Samsung including its first Infinity-V notch display and a whopping 5,000mAh battery under the hood, which is a first for Samsung in the under Rs 20,000 price bracket.
