It appears that Samsung has another new mid-range phone in the works. The possibility that the Galaxy M44 5G might be in the pipeline first emerged a couple of months ago. The device, bearing model number SM-M446K, was spotted on Geekbench.
The same device has now surfaced in South Korea, thus highlighting the chance that this device does exist and that Samsung may be about to launch it in the near future.
Galaxy M44 5G may feature the Snapdragon 888 chipset
The Galaxy M lineup consists of mid-range, affordably priced smartphones that are released in select markets across the globe. In recent years, Samsung has even added 5G capabilities of many phones in this lineup, thus providing users with a cost-effective way to experience 5G.
The Galaxy M44 5G has now surfaced on NRRA Korea, a regulatory agency in South Korea. The listing mentions its model number as SM-M446K and confirms that the device will have 5G. However, the listing provides no further details about the specifications of the device.
Its prior outing on Geekbench suggested that the device could use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which was a bit surprising, given that it's not a Samsung Exynos chipset. There's also the fact that the Snapdragon 888 is almost three years old now. Perhaps that Geekbench listing isn't representative of the reality and we may see what its true specs are in future test results.
That particular test did reveal that at least one variant will have 6GB of RAM, which is to be expected of any phone in this segment these days anyway. No further information is available about the Galaxy M44 5G at this point in time but if this device is slated for release in the near future, we should be seeing a lot more of it in the coming weeks.
