Update: After getting certified by the Bluetooth SIG earlier today, the Galaxy M20 has now been spotted on the FCC website as well. Samsung’s other upcoming Galaxy M series smartphone, the Galaxy M10 was spotted on the FCC website earlier this week.
The FCC documents reveal the Galaxy M20 will measure 156.4 x 74.5mm in terms of physical dimensions. In comparison, the Galaxy M10 was revealed to measure 155.7 x 75.8 by the FCC. This means the Galaxy M20 will be slightly taller but narrower compared to the Galaxy M10. As for the display size, the physical dimensions suggest the Galaxy M20 will not have a significantly larger display than the Galaxy M10. The FCC listing also reveals the smartphone will be fueled by an EB-BG580ABN Li-ion polymer battery. Unfortunately, however, the battery capacity has not been listed in the FCC filing. Rumors suggest the handset will pack a massive 5000mAh capacity battery.
Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy M20 was certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance last month. The budget Android smartphone has now been certified by the Bluetooth SIG as well, which suggests the official unveiling may happen very soon. If rumors are to be believed, the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 could be officially unveiled before the end of this month.
Multiple Galaxy M20 Variants Granted Bluetooth Certification
The Bluetooth SIG has certified four variants of the Galaxy M20: SM-M205F, SM-M205F_DS, SM-M205FN_DS, and SM-M205G_DS. As is usually the case, the Bluetooth certification does not reveal much about the upcoming smartphone. It only tells us that the smartphone will support the Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy standard. The previous Wi-Fi certification had revealed the Galaxy M20 will come with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity.
Going by previous leaks, the Galaxy M20 is expected to be powered by an Exynos 7885 14nm octa-core processor clocked at up to 2.2 GHz with a Mali-G71 GPU. However, the Exynos 7904 SoC has also been listed on the Bluetooth Launch Studio website, which could mean the Galaxy M20 willl be powered by the Exynos 7904 instead of Exynos 7885. instead The mid-range SoC will be coupled with 3GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. Samsung Galaxy M20 is expected to include a dedicated microSD card slot, which should allow users to expand the storage further by up to 256GB.
In terms of design, the upcoming budget Android smartphone from Samsung is rumored to have a waterdrop notch display with curved corners. The smartphone’s display is rumored to measure around 6.3-inches diagonally and will offer 1080 x 2340 Full HD+ resolution with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Unlike previous budget smartphones from Samsung, the Galaxy M20 is expected to be extremely impressive in the battery life department. The smartphone is tipped to pack a massive 5000mAh capacity battery. Some of the other rumored specifications of the Galaxy M20 include a dual-camera setup at the rear and an 8MP front-facing camera. On the software front, the Galaxy M20 will likely be launched with Android 8.1 Oreo-based Samsung Experience UX out of the box. An update to Android 9.0 Pie may be rolled out a few months after it goes on sale
