Rumor: Galaxy M (2020) series to offer significant hardware changes

Another rumor pertaining to Samsung’s mid-range smartphone lineup for next year emerged via Twitter, this time regarding the Galaxy M (2020) series. Firstly, the rumor indicates that the Galaxy M (2020) lineup might follow the same naming scheme as the Galaxy A (2020) series, which would make sense if Samsung doesn’t want to confuse people. Secondly, the rumor touches on a few specifications of the alleged Galaxy M21, Galaxy M31, and Galaxy M41.

Before we go any further, we should stress that this is an early rumor and, at the time of writing, we are unable to confirm its validity. And as pointed out before, specifications are subject to change throughout a smartphone’s development, so even if an early rumor might be correct initially, it could become inaccurate later down the line. Having said that, take this early information for what it is and maintain a healthy dose of skepticism.

Galaxy M21 rumored specs

According to this early information, the Galaxy M21 would make use of the Exynos 9609 chipset which was introduced by Samsung earlier this year. It has yet to power a Galaxy smartphone but was employed by the Motorola One Vision. The device could also feature 4GB of RAM and a 24-megapixel camera coupled with a 5MP depth sensor.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy M31 could switch gears and rely on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 665 chipset solution, coupled with 6GB of RAM. The device will supposedly have a 48-megapixel main camera paired with a 12-megapixel wide sensor and a 5MP depth sensor. This would be a considerable upgrade over the Galaxy M30’s camera configuration, at least as far as the pixel count is concerned.

Exynos 9630 might play a role in both the 2020 Galaxy A and M series

Lastly, Samsung might switch the brand of chipsets for the Galaxy M41 too. While the Galaxy M40 relies on the Snapdragon 675 from Qualcomm, its 2020 successor will supposedly employ the Exynos 9630 silicon paired with 6GB of RAM. This chipset has yet to be officially introduced by Samsung, but it is reportedly being tested for the 2020 mid-range lineup. The M41’s rear camera setup would include a 64MP main camera paired with a 12MP wide sensor and a 5MP depth sensor.

Some of these Galaxy M models could be unveiled as early as January next year, but this would still place them roughly five months away so a lot of things can change in the meantime. Keep a pinch of salt nearby and feel free to share your thoughts on these rumored specs in the comment section.

Why no Exynos cpu for m31?

I hope the processors on these phones are worthy to buy them. Then I’ll definitely upgrade my m20 to one of these.

It seems that these will have different improvements over the upcoming ‘s’ variants.

On another note, I hope the compact ‘e’ variants will remain next year, and be available for us Asian customers (S10e here only sadly). Maybe name A40’s (compact) successor A41e and A40s’ (average-sized) successor A41, to avoid confusion.

Southeast Asia specifically: We have the 3 S10 phones, A10, A20, A30, A50, A70, A80 and M20. That means S10e is the only compact here, whereas the U.S. gets the A10e and S10e and Europe gets the A20e, A40 and S10e.

There’s no A50e btw.
