Samsung unveiled the Galaxy M20 on January 28th. It leads the company’s new effort to compete in the highly competitive budget smartphone segment. It’s a pretty solid smartphone which has been aggressively priced for good measure. Samsung is also focusing on selling it primarily online to keep costs down.

Having made its way through India and Indonesia and the Philippines, the Galaxy M20 has been launched in Malaysia today. Samsung will be selling the device online in the country starting March 20.

Galaxy M20 online sales begin March 20

The Galaxy M20 is the first smartphone from the new Galaxy M series to launch in Malaysia. It’s also the first online-exclusive model from the company. Samsung will be selling it through Shopee and its own online store.

We were pretty impressed by this device. Our Galaxy M20 review concluded that this device is a masterstroke from Samsung, largely because of its blend of functionality and aggressive pricing. The company seems to have picked up a few tricks from its Chinese rivals who have threatened its position in this segment of the market with similar strategies.

The Galaxy M20 features a 6.3-inch LCD display, an Exynos 7904 processor with 3/4GB RAM and 32/64GB configurations. There’s a dual camera setup at the back with a 13-megapixel primary and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. The display notch has an 8-megapixel selfie camera. Samsung put the biggest battery on a budget Galaxy smartphone yet on this device, a 5,000mAh battery to be precise. It runs Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box.

Samsung has exclusively teamed up with Shopee Malaysia to sell the Galaxy M20 in the country. Customers will also be able to purchase it from the company’s own online store. It will be available in Charcoal Black and Ocean Blue colors for RM799 ($195) starting March 20. Samsung is offering a free Logitech X50 mobile wireless speaker to customers who purchase this device from its online store. Shopee customers will get the same speaker in addition to a JBL headset so it’s clearly the better choice in terms of value for money.
