Galaxy M20 first impressions appear to be promising

Samsung confirmed last week that it will officially unveil the new Galaxy M series on January 28 in India. They’re Samsung’s first smartphones with an Infinity-V display. It places a waterdrop style notch up top for the front camera.

Samsung appears to have sent a test unit to a lucky user who is a part of its Samsung Members community in India. The user got to play around with the phone and their first impressions of the Galaxy M20 appear to be promising.

Galaxy M20 first impressions make it seem like a solid product

There are three devices in this new series. The Galaxy M10, M20 and the M30. Samsung has previously confirmed that it will only be selling the Galaxy M series online in India. These devices have been made with a specific purpose in mind. Samsung aims to better compete against Chinese rivals in the country with the Galaxy M handsets. Selling them online only will allow Samsung to be more competitive on price.

The user is singing praises of the Galaxy M20’s Infinity-V display, which offers a viewing experience unlike any Samsung smartphone before it, as well as its battery. The Galaxy M20 and M30 are both expected to feature a 5,000mAh battery.

We have already confirmed the Galaxy M20’s specs. It features a 6.3-inch LCD display with 2340×1080 pixel resolution. There’s a dual rear camera with 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel sensors, the latter shooting ultra-wide images. The handset will be powered by Samsung’s latest Exynos processor with 3GB of RAM. It has a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and will ship with Android 8.1 Oreo. We also have the official firmware and wallpapers for the Galaxy M20 available for download.

Any words on the price?

People will easily mistaken it as Oppo F9 or Oneplus 6T as they are so identical. Btw, why are the bezels are so thick? Does it cost really much just to shave the bezels? Chinese can do it why Samsung can’t do it.

The bezels are a lot bigger than what was shown in the promos

Seems to be the case for flagships as well. The promo material on Samsung’s website always has smaller bezels, and it’s something other OEMs are doing as well.

Samsung is no different from Chinese OEMs now. Copying Chinese phones design, UI design and even their marketing strategy. Not only Samsung becomes a follower, it’s already Chinese turn to innovate something WOW while Samsung is still sleeping and having a morning, noon and afternoon break watching their market share shrinking.

No one cares if a phone looks like a Chinese phone. They want a phone that’s decent for a good price and that’s what this phone is trying to accomplish.
