Samsung's upcoming Galaxy M20 mid-range smartphone spotted on Geekbench
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.
