Samsung’s new Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones are now available for purchase in India. Officially announced on January 28th, the Galaxy M10 and M20 are amazingly well priced budget phones from the Korean giant that will take on the competition from Chinese manufacturers such as Xiaomi in the Indian market. Both phones are exclusive to Amazon and Samsung’s official online store, which is partly the reason why Samsung has been able to price them so aggressively.
The M10 and M20 get a common rear camera setup with a 13MP primary camera and a 5MP ultra-wide camera. For selfies, there’s an 8MP camera on the M20 and a 5MP camera on the M10. The M10 and M20 feature 6.2-inch and 6.3-inch Infinity-V displays (Samsung’s brand name for displays with a waterdrop notch) and are powered by the Exynos 7870 and Exynos 7904 chipsets respectively. The Galaxy M20 comes with a gargantuan 5,000 mAh battery with fast charging support while the M10 gets a 3,400 mAh battery but no fast charging. Both phones run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and are slated to receive Android Pie in August this year.
The Galaxy M10 is priced at ₹7,990 for the 2GB+16GB configuration and ₹8,990 for the 3GB+32GB variant. The Galaxy M20 costs ₹10,990 for the 3GB+32GB variant and ₹12,990 for the 4GB+64GB model. Samsung has a few launch day offers for the two devices, including additional mobile data and zero-cost EMI plans. Color options for both include Charcoal Black and Ocean Blue.
You can buy the phones on Amazon at the links below and at Samsung’s store here; you might want to hurry, as it seems stocks are in limited supply. If you’re looking at the Galaxy M20, don’t forget to check out review of the phone. Spoiler alert: We like it a lot, and it’s a great deal for the asking price.
Update: It seems Samsung has opted for a flash sale model for the Galaxy M10 and M20 on Amazon, with the next sale set to go live on February 7. This is how Chinese OEMs sell their devices in the initial few months, and it looks like Samsung is following the same path.
