There’s a reason to look forward to the Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, the first phones from the line that’s supposed to replace the Galaxy J and On series. A recent report claims they will be priced aggressively to compete with the likes of Xiaomi.
According to cited industry sources, the Galaxy M10 won’t go beyond ₹10,000 (roughly P7,389 or $140). This for a device that’s powered by an Exynos 7870 processor paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage and runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The Samsung Galaxy J6, which has the same chip, memory configuration, and Android version, was priced at P13,990 ($265) — or about 100 percent more — at launch.
The Galaxy M20, on the other hand, will reportedly cost no more than ₹15,000 (P11,084 or $210). It gets the higher-end Exynos 7885, the same chipset that’s inside the Samsung Galaxy A8 and Galaxy A8+. It is likewise said to feature 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage; a 2,340 × 1,080 screen; and Android 8.1 Oreo. What’s more, the smartphone was seen to sport a dewdrop notch — a move the company has seem to have avoided for the longest time.
The rumored prices hint that the Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 could be online-exclusive models. At least in India, where the two are already allegedly in production in the Korean tech giant’s factory in the country.
Are these particular budget phones going to be launched in the Philippines and other Asian regions? When and for how much? We’ll probably know all the answers in early 2019, when Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy M series.
