Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones have finally been launched in India. The newly launched Galaxy M10 and M20 offer a similar design language with Infinity-V displays, but they differ in hardware.
The Samsung Galaxy M-series range has been targeted to the millennials and also an answer to the increasing demand for Chinese-made affordable smartphones in the Indian market.
Differences and similarities between Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20:
The 2GB and 16GB version of Galaxy M10 will 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.
India will be the first country where the new series smartphones will be launched. Both the smartphones will be available on Amazon.in from March 5. The ‘M’ series will also be available on Samsung’s online store.
Galaxy M20 will house a massive 5,000mAh battery while M10 will house a 3,400mAh battery.
The Galaxy M10 features a 6.2-inch HD+ (720×1520 pixels) Infinity-V Display panel along with an 19:9 aspect ratio, while the Galaxy M20 features a slightly larger 6.3-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) Infinity-V Display along with an 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The M10 is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos 7870 chipset which is based on a 14nm process and offers eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 1.6GHz. The M20 gets the newly announced Exynos 7904 chipset which is also based on a 14nm process. The chipset is equipped with two Cortex-A73 cores that run at 1.8GHz, and six Cortex-A53 cores that run at 1.6GHz.
They both get a 13MP primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture and a 5MP secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture. The front camera, however, is different as the M10 gets a 5MP selfie shooter while the M20 gets an 8MP sensor.
The Galaxy M20 gets a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor in addition to face unlocks. The Galaxy M10 offers no physical fingerprint sensor, just the face unlock feature for biometric, which may not work well in low-light.
Both the Galaxy M10 and M20 ship with Android 8.1 Oreo with a new Experience UI 9.5, which offers a cleaner, smoother UI. Samsung inadvertently revealed that the two phones will receive Android Pie later this year in August.
