The last major M-series phone from Samsung was the Snapdragon 675 powered Galaxy M40 that had debuted in June. Now a report by 91mobiles reveals that the South Korean tech giant is planning to introduce a new M-series phone later this month, which could arrive as the Galaxy M50. The publication has managed to get hold of a message from Samsung that was sent to the company’s retail partners. Notably, while all the M-series phones the brand has launched so far were made available through the online sales partners, the upcoming Galaxy M series offering will also be up for grabs from major brick-and-mortar retail stores across the country.
The message about the next M-series phone to a retailing partner reads that Samsung will be making the device available through online and offline channels simultaneously. Samsung is yet to officially reveal the arrival of the next M-series phone. It is speculated that the next M-series will be called Galaxy M50 and it will be coming with specs better than the Galaxy M40. The publication claims that the phone is expected to break cover on November 15th. Online and offline sales channels are said to sell the phone at the same price tag. The South Korean company is expected to start teasing the launch of the upcoming Galaxy M series offering soon.
To recap on the Galaxy M40, the phone houses a 6.3-inch IPS LCD full HD+ panel with a hole in the screen to house the 16-megapixel selfie camera. The Snapdragon 675 processor onboard the device is paired with up to 6GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage. Software-wise, the handset boots Android 9 Pie with One UI on top. At the rear, the phone has a triple primary camera setup consisting of a 32MP main sensor, an 8MP secondary shooter, and a 5MP third sensor. A 3,500mAh battery with 15W fast charging support keeps the handset running.
