Earlier this week, Samsung’s upcoming budget Android smartphone, the Galaxy M10 received Wi-Fi certification. The Wi-Fi Alliance has now certified Samsung’s other upcoming budget Android smartphone, the Galaxy M20.
Samsung Galaxy M20 Granted Wi-Fi Certification
The Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the SM-M205F variant of the Galaxy M20. While the certification does not tell us much about the upcoming device, it confirms the handset will be running on the Android 8.1 Oreo operating system at launch. As for connectivity, the certification reveals the smartphone will support the Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n standards. Going by previous leaks, the Galaxy M20 is expected to be powered by an octa-core 14nm Exynos 7885 SoC under the hood. The Galaxy M10, which will be positioned below the Galaxy M20, is also expected to run on the same chipset. In the memory department, we can expect the budget Android smartphone to feature 3GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal storage. The display size is yet to be confirmed, although leaked live images of the smartphone suggest it will sport a waterdrop notch at the top. Needless to say, the Galaxy M20 will have a much improved screen-to-body ratio compared to the current crop of budget Galaxy smartphones. As for display resolution, Galaxy M20 is expected to feature 1080 x 2340 pixels Full HD+ resolution while the Galaxy M10 could sport an HD+ resolution panel.
As revealed by a recent leak, the key highlight of the Samsung Galaxy M20 will be a massive 5000mAh capacity battery. With an efficient 14nm Exynos 7885 processor and a huge 5000mAh battery under the hood, Galaxy M20 could prove to be a great choice for power users looking for a new budget Android smartphone. As for availability, rumors suggest the Galaxy M20 will be launched in various markets across Europe as well as India. In India, Samsung has apparently already started mass production of the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 smartphones. Both the smartphones are expected to be officially announced early next year.
