Samsung Galaxy M62 shows up on Geekbench running an Exynos 9825
We've heard about the Samsung Galaxy M62 since as early as November 2020 via a report which said that it would offer up to 256GB of storage. Subsequent leaks speculated that it was actually a tablet, only to be debunked sometime later. The smartphone has now shown up on Geekbench running what appears to be an Exynos 9825 SoC that powered the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 series.
The information comes from Twitter leaker Abhishek Yadav, who stumbled upon the Samsung Galaxy M62 on Geekbench. While its single and multi-core scores of 786 and 1,995 may seem lacklustre now, it was one of the fastest in the industry back in 2019. The chipset is no slacker and should be able to outperform most modern-day offerings easily.
Little more is known about the Samsung Galaxy M62 at this point, other than the fact that it will ship with a colossal 7,000mAh battery. The Geekbench listing tells us that one variant of the smartphone will ship with 6GB of RAM. Things are further complicated because there are no Galaxy M60 series smartphones out there.
Given its name, we can expect the Samsung Galaxy M62 to improve upon last year's Galaxy M51, which came with four rear cameras, a 6.7-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen and a 7,000mAh battery. Since it is a part of Samsung's low-cost Galaxy M series of smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy M62 could cost around US$500.
