Samsung’s first venture into the notch game has finally been made official with the launch of its M-series smartphones in India, the Galaxy M10 and M20, both are geared towards the more budget-oriented segment, and are perhaps, the companies reply to devices from the very dominant brand, Xiaomi.
The Galaxy M10 is the more affordable of the two, and sports a 6.2-inch Infinity-V display with HD+ resolution. Housed in its V-Notch is a 5MP selfie camera, while its back hosts a 13MP + 5MP dual camera system, the latter for wide angle shots. It runs on an Exynos 7870 octa-core processor, along with up to 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 3,430mAh battery.
The Galaxy M20 on the other hand, has a larger 6.3-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch that houses an 8MP snapper that’s also used for its face unlock feature. Unlike the M10, the M20 benefits from a physical fingerprint sensor placed at the rear panel alongside its 13MP + 5MP dual snappers. Its second rear camera also sports a wide-angle lens.
Under the hood is a more powerful Exynos 7904 octa-core processor along with up to 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of storage. It packs a more potent 5,000mAh battery. Both phones come with Samsung Experience UI 9.5 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo.
