Samsung Galaxy M01 certified with Android 10 onboard


Last updated: March 27th, 2020 at 14:44 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy M01, one of Samsung’s upcoming budget smartphones, is nearing release after receiving product certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. This is usually a good indication of an impending launch.

According to the WFA’s documentation, the handset will run Android 10 out of the box and boast dual-SIM capabilities. The Galaxy M01 running Android 10 from the get-go means that it will be set for at least two major Android OS updates.

Android 10-based One UI experience on a budget

Earlier this month, SamMobile exclusively reported on the existence of the Galaxy M01. The smartphone was originally spotted in the Geekbench database, with its entry being indicative of a rather modest product.

According to benchmarking data, at least one Galaxy M01 model will pack 3GB of RAM and an octa-core Qualcomm chipset. The energy-efficient cluster of the said SoC should run at about 2GHz, though its core structure remains unknown.

In other words, it remains to be seen whether the device will use a 4+4 or 2+6 silicon. However, the otherwise budget-friendly nature of the listing seems to point in the direction of a Snapdragon 400-series SoC, most likely the Snapdragon 439.

If that sounds familiar, it’s because Samsung already has a budget Android device powered by the same chipset – the Galaxy A01. The modest nature of the Galaxy M01 was quite clearly devised for developing markets. Insider information previously obtained by SamMobile already suggested as much, indicating that Samsung is initially only planning to launch the device in India, Russia, Sri Lanka, and Nepal.

With its Wi-Fi certification out of the way, the Galaxy M01 may hit the store shelves in the not too distant future.
