Samsung has confirmed its Galaxy M series will make its official debut on January 28. In a press statement, the South Korean company made it clear that India is the first country where Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy M series smartphones. Samsung says the Galaxy M series lineup of smartphones is intended to target the youth and is designed in India.
While Samsung did not confirm the names of the phones, but it only mentions that they will come with “powerful display, powerful camera, powerful battery and a powerful processor helping the smartphones deliver power-packed performance.” Going by various reports, the smartphones will be called the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20.
A lot has been said and written about the Galaxy M series. It’s being speculated that the two smartphones will be pitched as mid-range smartphones. So expect their specifications and features comparable to Xiaomi and Honor phones in terms of specifications and features. The Galaxy M series smartphones will be available on Amazon.in, as well as on Samsung’s own online store.
The Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 will be Samsung’s first smartphones to come with the Infinity V notch display. Out of the two, the Galaxy M20 will likely to feature a 5,000mAh battery, first for any Samsung smartphone. The Galaxy M10 is said to cost around Rs 10,000, while the Galaxy M20 may end up costing Rs 15,000. The word on the street is that Samsung might launch the Galaxy M30 on January 28. Details about this phone are limited at the moment.
The move to launch the Galaxy M series in India is directly liked to the company’s falling market share in the smartphone market. In the third quarter of 2018, Samsung held a market share of 23 per cent and had to settle for a number two spot. In comparison, Xiaomi had a 27 per cent market share and recorded its highest ever shipments in India in a single quarter. The company’s Redmi series is extremely popular, especially the Galaxy Note 6 Pro and Redmi 6A, as these phones offer good specifications for an amazingly low price.
