Samsung Galaxy M11 hits Europe, raising the entry-level quality bar
It certainly took a while, but Samsung finally brought the Galaxy M11 to Europe, with the smartphone officially arriving to the Old Continent earlier today. This release is a significant boost to Samsung’s entry-level portfolio in the region as the Galaxy M11 does a pretty decent job of punching well above its modest price tag. Speaking of which, the smartphone will retail at €159 in the Netherlands and most other EU state members.
Minor pricing fluctuations are only a possibility due to VAT differences across the European Economic Area. The Galaxy M11 will start appearing on the digital and physical store shelves in Europe from tomorrow, Samsung confirmed.
Stellar battery life meets affordability
While it’s been four months since its debut in India (and three from release), the Galaxy M11 is still one of the most well-rounded Android smartphones money can buy in the lower end of the price bracket. It features a sizable 6.4-inch TFT display supporting resolutions up to 1,560 x 720, an 8-megapixel selfie camera, and a triple-sensor, 13-megapixel mobile photography setup on the back.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 450 is the brains of the operation, backed by 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable flash storage. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear Europe will be getting the better-specced, 4GB/64GB variant of the Galaxy M11 that previously launched in India. On the bright side, we’re still looking at a device with an impressive 5,000mAh battery and support for respectably fast 15W charging speeds.
Prospective Galaxy M11 buyers in Europe will get a choice between black and metallic blue color options. Meanwhile, the violet version of the smartphone doesn’t appear to be leaving Asia for the time being.
