Galaxy M20 could have a whopping 5,000 mAh battery

We have already told you that Samsung is working on a new series of affordable smartphones to better compete in this segment. The new Galaxy M series will reportedly replace the Galaxy C, J and On lineups to consolidate Samsung’s affordable offerings. It may kick things off with two devices initially – the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20.

Bits and pieces of information has been trickling in about both devices over the past couple of days. A new report claims that the Galaxy M20 is going to have a massive 5,000mAh battery. That’s not the kind of capacity we’re used to seeing on Samsung’s high-end devices, let alone its affordable models.

Samsung’s first second Android smartphone with a 5,000mAh battery

After the Galaxy A9 Pro (2016), the Galaxy M20 would be the second Samsung phone with a 5,000 mAh battery. But it may be the first to feature one of Samsung’s Infinity-U displays, according to AAS. An image leaked online a few days ago suggested that this might mean a waterdrop-like notch for the display, although the image showed a notch design slightly different from Samsung’s official teaser of the Infinity-U display.

The Galaxy M20 measures 156.4 x 74.5 x 8.8 mm as per the new report. That would make it 1mm thicker than the recently launched Galaxy A8s. It might not go down the same route as the Galaxy A8s and ditch the 3.5mm headphone jack. A purported Galaxy M20 case leaked last week did have a cutout for the jack. It may feature an 8 megapixel front camera and a 13 MP + 5 MP dual camera system at the back.

The Galaxy M20 has already been spotted on Geekbench with an Exynos 7885 processor and 3GB RAM. It will most likely come with Android 8.1 Oreo much like the Galaxy M10 which received its Wi-Fi certification today.

Samsung is yet to confirm anything about this new series. It’s unclear when the company is planning to launch the Galaxy M handsets. Some suggest that we may see a launch as early as January 2019. We’ve already revealed that these devices will go on sale in countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa first.

Editor’s note: The story has been updated to reflect the fact that the Galaxy M20 would be the second Samsung phone with a 5,000 mAh battery, not the first as originally mentioned in the article. An honest mistake on our part, as devices like the Galaxy A9 Pro (2016) were launched in limited markets. Thanks to our readers for pointing out the discrepancy.

Cool, I hope the next A9 will use 5,000 mAH as well, the 2016 A9 Pro is great

Well, that’s the side of battery Samsung should have put on Note 8 and 9 at least since it did it on the A9 pro 2016.

Why do you seem to have forgotten about A9 Pro (2016)??? It was the first Samsung Galaxy phone to come with a 5000mAh battery. You also must be unaware of the fact that it had received the Oreo update way back in October but you were too occupied to care, I guess.

They seem to have actually forgotten about A9 Pro (2016). It was the first Samsung Galaxy phone to come with a 5000mAh battery. They also must be unaware of the fact that it had received the Oreo update way back in October but they were too occupied to care, I guess.

I’m more interested in the S10 battery. I bet it will be the same disappointing 3000mAh.

Blind fans will tell: But it’s 7nm, consume less battery… I’ve been hearing this story since 2014 and most flagships still can’t handle 1 day of free usage.

I’m not sure any fans have ever defended the 3,000 mAh battery on the small Galaxy S flagships 😛 But yeah, that’s pretty much why Samsung, Apple etc should stop with these compact flagships, because at the moment you’re giving up too much for comfortable one-handed usage.
