Samsung has announced a pair of new mid-range smartphones for the Indian market in the form of the Galaxy M10 and M20. This marks the debut of the Galaxy M line, which had already been rumored to be coming soon.
Samsung says the new devices are "inspired by millennials", and they pack a solid all-around set of features. Both devices feature the company's Infinity-V displays, which is to say they have a small "waterdrop" notch to house the front-facing camera, with very little bezels visible all around. On the M20, that display is 6.3 inches in size and comes in at Full HD+ resolution (2340x1080), while the M10 makes do with a 6.2-inch panel at HD+ resolution (1520x720).
If you're using those displays to stream content online, you'll be happy to know that the devices comply with Widevine L1, so you'll be able to watch shows and videos in HD.
Samsung also touts long battery life for the devices, especially the M20. It comes with a massive 5000mAh battery, which supposedly gets you over 28 hours of video streaming. The M10 settles for a 3400mAh unit. Both charge via USB Type-C, and the M20 offers 15W fast charging as well.
Aside from that, both devices have dual rear cameras, a 13MP main sensor, and 5MP 120º wide-angle lens. On the front, the M20 has an 8MP shooter while the M10 sticks to just 5MP. For processing, the M10 uses the older hexa-core Exynos 7870 chipset, while the M20 has the newly-launched octa-core Exynos 7904.
The phones will be available through Amazon India and Samsung's own website starting February 5, and they come in either Ocean Blue or Charcoal Black colors. The Galaxy M10 will start at ₹7,990 ($112) for the 2GB/16GB variant, while the 3GB/32GB model will start at ₹8,990 ($126). The Galaxy M20 starts at ₹10,990 ($154) for the 3GB/32GB version and the higher-end 4GB/64GB edition will cost ₹12,990 ($182).
