  • The Galaxy M20 will have a 5000mAh battery while the Galaxy M10 will be powered by a 3400mAh unit

In a bid to take on Xiaomi’s popular “Redmi” series, South Korean giant Samsung is all set to launch two industry-first Galaxy ‘M’ smartphones, starting from Rs 7,990, on January 28, reliable industry sources said on Saturday. Contrary to some media reports claiming that the price for the new smartphones starts at Rs 8,990, the sources said that the 2GB and 16GB version of Galaxy M10 would be priced at Rs 7,990 and 3GB and 32GB version will cost Rs 8,990. The 3GB and 32GB variant of Galaxy M20 will cost Rs 10,990 (as earlier reported by IANS) and 4GB and 64GB variant of M20 will cost Rs 12,990.

Both the smartphones will be available on from March 5. India will be the first country where the new series smartphones will be launched. The ‘M’ series will also be available on Samsung’s online store.

“India is the first market for the global launch of ‘M’ series. It will go to other markets later. The ‘M’ portfolio which will be made available through the online channel is single-mindedly designed and intended for millennials,” Asim Warsi, Global Vice President, Samsung India, had told IANS earlier this month.

The Galaxy ‘M’ series smartphones with features like Infinity V display and massive battery power are being manufactured for the millennials at Samsung’s facility in Noida — the world’s largest mobile phone factory. The Galaxy M20 will house a massive 5000mAh battery while M10 will house a 3400mAh battery.

“You will see the evocative display, massive battery with power management solutions, memory management solutions, fast charging technology — all in ‘M’ devices. “In one word, these are powerful devices, made for India keeping the local requirements in mind,” Warsi added.

While Samsung is generating a lot of buzz for the Galaxy M devices, the entire success of the phones will depend on the processors used by the company. Furthermore, the Galaxy M10 is said to lack a fingerprint scanner which would be underwhelming by many standards in 2019.
