The Samsung Galaxy M31s may be headed for its first European market
Samsung has posted a support page for a device called the SM-M317F/DSN on its Italian-language website. As this model number is known to correspond to the Galaxy M31s, it seems this battery-centric phone is headed to a new market.
The M31s was originally launched in India at the end of July 2020. Its appeal is much the same as that of its immediate predecessor the M31, in that they both have the largest battery Samsung makes for smartphones (at the time of writing, at least). This older model's 6000mAh power pack lasted no less than 22 hours in our WLAN test; therefore, its new variant stands to do just as well.
However, that is not the end of the M31s' plus points: it has a punch-hole camera whereas its forebear has a waterdrop notch; furthermore, its screen is 0.1 inches longer compared to that of the M31, and it supports a 25 watt top charging rate as opposed to the older model's 15W limit.
Then again, the page gives no hint as to when the Galaxy M31s may arrive in Italy, or how much it might cost when or if it gets there. For reference, the M31 cost about €270 (~US$321) in Europe; therefore, its refreshed version may be the same or a little more than this.
