Samsung refreshed its affordable smartphone lineup with the launch of the Galaxy M series. The first handsets in this series were the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and the Galaxy M30. The latest addition to this series was the Galaxy M40.
Packed with some good set of internals and with a reasonable price tag, the Galaxy M series allowed the company to compete against the Chinese brands like Xiaomi and Realme. Now, the company is all set to bring a new model in the Galaxy M series which is scheduled to launch this week. Details are as follows:
Samsung is said to be working on the Galaxy M50 which will come as a successor to the recently launched Galaxy M40. This information comes from the 91Mobiles, where the publication came across a Samsung notification to retail partners stating, “We look to provide the next M series smartphone”. It is worth noting that the Galaxy M series is online exclusive and the company is planning to make it available in the offline market as well.
The Galaxy M50 is expected to debut on November 15 in India, but there is no word on its pricing. It is highly likely that Samsung might bring the device to the offline market as well to boost the sales of the Galaxy M series. As of now, there are no details available on the hardware and software of the Galaxy M40, but, we expect some major upgrades over its predecessor.
The Samsung Galaxy M40 offers an Infinity-O LCD display measuring 6.3-inches with 1080 x 2340 pixels FHD+ resolution and a Corning Gorilla Glass protection. The notch upfront packs a 16MP camera with an f/2.0 aperture. The triple-lens rear camera module houses a 32MP primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture, an 8MP wide-angle-sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor with an f/2.2 aperture.
It uses an octa-core Snapdragon 675 chipset with 2GHz clock speed and an Adreno 612 GPU. It comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration and supports up to 512GB microSD card. The device runs on Android Pie OS with One UI skin and is backed by a 3,500 mAh battery.
