As mobile technology grows in sophistication, cheaper and cheaper cell phones are getting the features that were previously reserved for flagship designs. Samsung's latest phones for the Indian market, the Galaxy M1
Let's start with the M20. For just 11,000 INR (about 155 USD), users get a huge 6.3-inch 1080p display with rounded corners and a "teardrop" camera as seen on the OnePlus 6T. This large body allows the phone to hold an incredible 5000mAh battery suitable for multi-day charging. The phone has a fingerprint reader on the back and a face unlock on the front camera, two rear cameras with 13MP primary and 5MP ultra-wide secondary cameras. A USB Type-C connector, which is still not a matter of course in budget design, hangs in the box on the bottom with a 15-watt quick charger.
The M20 has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of memory on the base model. and everything else you can put in the MicroSD card slot. A larger model with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage will cost 13,000 INR (just over $ 180).
Outside your budget? Then look at the Galaxy M10. It shrinks the screen a little to 6.2 inches and has shut down to a resolution of "HD +" (read: 720p), however, with the same teardrop shape and rounded corners and the notch of the teardrop shape. Samsung does not mention either a USB Type-C connector or a fast M10 recharge, but does not include the fingerprint scanner (face unlock is still available) and the massive battery with a slower octa-core processor. With 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage running at 9,000 INR (125 USD), the cheapest model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage is just 8,000 INR (115USD). Even if the specifications do not inspire you, this is a fantastic deal for a phone that looks like a flagship from a few years ago. Significantly, Samsung does not mention Android in their press release, so there's no indication of whether the phones are running 8.0 Oreo or 9.0 Pie.
Samsung says the Galaxy M10 and M20 will first hit the market in India on February 5th. They are sold on the Indian Amazon shop window front in blue and black variants. Given the history of the company and its extensive telephone service, it is expected that these models – or models that are virtually identical – will be too long available in other markets.
