A recent listing on Geekbench details an upcoming Samsung device. The Samsung SM-M205F, otherwise known as the Galaxy M20, will likely be the first entry in Samsung's new mid-range Galaxy M line. Sporting an Exynos 7885 SoC and 3 GB of RAM, the Galaxy M20 looks poised to supplant the aging Galaxy J line.

Samsung is no stranger to variety. The largest smartphone manufacturer in the world seemingly has a product line for every use case. While the tech world is constantly following the company’s Galaxy S line of flagship handsets, Samsung’s mid-range offerings are decent devices in their own right. Now, we may have a peek at the newest member of the Samsung mid-range family; benchmark scores for the Galaxy M20 were recently posted to Geekbench.

The Galaxy M line is rumored to be the replacement for Samsung’s current mid-range line, the Galaxy J brand of smartphones. To that end, the Galaxy M20’s specs are sufficient for a middle-of-the-road handset. Beating at the device’s heart is Samsung’s own Exynos 7885 SoC, a chip that has been used extensively in other Samsung phones, particularly the Galaxy A7 and Galaxy A8. The octa-core SoC is built on a 14 nm process and competes well against other mid-range smartphones. We’ve reviewed the Exynos 7885 in detail here.

According to the Geekbench posting, the Galaxy M20 will also have 3 GB of RAM. Sadly, the Geekbench listing suggests that the upcoming handset may ship with Android 8.1 Oreo, although Samsung could update the OS prior to or at launch. According to other leaks, there will be a 32 GB and a 64 GB variant, and if the phone is anything like Samsung’s other handsets, the Galaxy M20 should offer expandable storage.

We’ll see if Samsung makes an official announcement in the coming weeks, but considering the phone has been listed on Geekbench, it shouldn’t be too long before we see the Galaxy M20 in person.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
