Rumor | Samsung will unleash the Galaxy M32 in June 2021 at a starting price of as little as ~US$205
Samsung is projected to debut an upgrade to the Galaxy M31, which has proven popular on the Indian market, in that same country soon. According to the latest word on this phone, published by the Indo-Asian News Service, this event will take place in June 2021.
The new Galaxy M variant has thus not even launched yet; however, this has not stopped Samsung adding an official set of renders for the device to its press website ahead of time. They confirm that the M32's looks are very different to its predecessor, with a new, texturized (and probably polycarbonate) rear panel and square rear camera hump.
The shooters contained within this module are currently rumored to consist of a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 5MP sensor for macros and a 2MP depth-sensor. This, then, would be a surprising downgrade from the 64+8+5+5MP M31.
The M32 is at least expected to keep its sub-series' display quality consistent, with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED panel. It is also predicted to have at least 1 6GB RAM SKU, run a build of One UI 3 based on Android 11 and a 6,000mAh battery. It may get a different processor, at least: a MediaTek Helio G85 to the M31's Exynos 9611.
The Galaxy M32's latest leaks also concern its price: the Indo-Asian News Service asserts it may cost between INR 15,000 (~US$205) and INR 20,000 (~$270) at its launch, whereas the M31 started at INR 21,999 (~$301) for an 8GB RAM SKU, even if it is discounted by INR 5,000 (~$233) on Amazon.in at the moment.
All in all, it seems Samsung has made some potentially underwhelming choices to follow the Galaxy M31 up in 2021. Then again, time and sales figures in its target market might tell for sure.
