In India, where the phone is already available, the model with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage is priced at ₹10,990 (roughly P7,990 or $154). The unit with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, on the other hand, retails at ₹12,990 (P9,437 or $182). Pretty aggressive pricing for a Samsung phone, don’t you think?

The Galaxy M20 is one of the two Samsung devices that sport a notch at the top of the screen — a surprise move by the company that mocked Apple for putting a cutout into the iPhone X.
