Samsung today officially announced its new Galaxy M10 and M20 smartphones, which are specifically designed for the Indian market and are pretty affordable. With these models, Samsung will be hoping to take back the lead in the rapidly growing Indian smartphone market.

It has been clear for some time that Samsung would present its new Galaxy M models on January 28, but so far there have only been rumours and a few leaks about the specifications the devices would be launched with. Today, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy M10 and M20, and here are some of the details of the Galaxy M10:

  • 6.22-inch display (720x1480 pixels)
  • face detection
  • Samsung Exynos 7870
  • 2/3 GB RAM
  • 16/32 GB storage
  • 13 MP camera (f/1.9 aperture) and a second 5.0 MP sensor (f/2.2 aperture)
  • 5.0 MP selfie camera with an f/2.2 aperture
  • Bluetooth 4.2
  • 3400 mAh battery
  • Prices: ₹7,990/₹8,990 (~US$112/US$126)

The slightly more expensive Galaxy M20 on the other hand comes with the following specifications:

  • 6.3-inch display (1080x2340 pixels)
  • fingerprint scanner, face detection
  • Samsung Exynos 7904
  • 3/4 GB RAM
  • 32/64 GB storage
  • 13 MP camera (f/1.9 aperture) and a second 5.0 MP sensor (f/2.2 aperture)
  • 8.0 MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • 5000 mAh battery
  • Prices: ₹10,990/₹12,990 (~US$154/US$182)

All in all, the specifications show that Samsung has succeeded in developing a smartphone with some interesting features at a reasonable price. Especially the display with its extremely small notch and the very large battery of the Galaxy M20 are convincing in this price range at first glance. The fact that both smartphones will also be available with dual-sim support should make some customers happy.

However, it seems that these smartphones will only be available in India for the time being, where sales of the devices will start on February 5th on Amazon.
