Samsung wants crown back, seeks to blunt Xiaomi’s edge

Samsung has launched a microsite for an upcoming Galaxy M device - likely the Galaxy M20, judging by the dual-camera setup on its back - and, sure enough, it has an Infinity-V display with a single selfie lens occupying the small notch up top.

Warsi also revealed that these new smartphones will feature big batteries, as well as support for fast charging, features that are created to appeal to the country's tech smart and savvy millennial consumers. The formal launch of the Galaxy M series in the country has been set for January 28.

Going by the earlier reports and the new official press renders, which reveal the new M series will be featuring Samsung's new Infinity-V displays, which the Korean tech giant introduced during their Developer Conference past year. "This new range has been inspired by millennials and designed in India", Samsung India Senior Vice President Asim Warsi told PTI. It's the second time a Samsung phone is going have a battery that big (the first was the Galaxy A9 Pro), while it will be the first time we see fast charging on a budget Samsung device. Rumors are rife that the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will be unleashed on the said date. The Galaxy M series will have a V notch design as is clear from the promotional images being used on Amazon's notify me page. A Galaxy M30 is also believed to be in the works. The M20 is also said to be the first Samsung phone to house a 5,000mAh battery. The volume and power keys are on the right.

According to the report, the rear camera confirmation on Galaxy M20 is 13MP +5MP with 1.12 μm pixel size for the 13MP sensor and f/1.9 aperture. The Galaxy M20 is said to be powered by an Exynos 7904 chipset which will be paired with 4GB of RAM for multitasking and will offer a storage space of 32GB. The handset could be priced around Rs. 15,000 in India and it will be exclusively available through Amazon in India.
