Samsung is going all-in on 5G smartphones. After launching the Galaxy A32 5G, Galaxy A42 5G, and the Galaxy A52 5G this year, Samsung could soon launch one more mid-range smartphone with 5G connectivity. We had revealed earlier this month that the company is working on a 5G variant of the Galaxy M62. Now, the company is testing it for the Indian market.
A new Samsung smartphone with model number SM-M626B/DS has been listed on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) website. Going by the phone’s model number, it appears to be a version of the Galaxy M62 (also known as the Galaxy F62 in India) with 5G connectivity and a dual-SIM card slot. The Galaxy M62 5G’s Bluetooth SIG certification had revealed that it is basically a rebadged Galaxy A52 5G.
The SM-M626B/DS could feature the same 6.5-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-O display with a 120Hz refresh rate, Android 11 with One UI 3.1, 64MP OIS quad-camera setup with 4K video recording, 32MP selfie camera, an in-display fingerprint reader, a USB Type-C port, but probably a larger battery (larger than the Galaxy A52 5G’s battery) with 25W fast charging. The upcoming smartphone could also make it to other price-conscious markets in Asia.
