From past few weeks rumors are swirling the South Korean giant Samsung is working on a new mid-range Galaxy M lineup and the M20 will be amongst the first smartphone to hit the market. Today we have an exclusive front-facing image shared by 91mobiles which confirms the device will be featuring a waterdrop notch. If the image is accurate the M20 will be the company's first smartphone with notch design.
The notch only features the selfie camera whereas the M20 screen-to-body ratio is significantly higher than any other Samsung phone. Another prominent aspect of the display is it is gently curved from the sides that's why it looks more stylish and premium than the displays on the Galaxy J and On lineup phones.
We will recommend taking this alleged photo with a pinch of salt because so far all leaks and teaser suggest the device will have a full bezel at the top of the display. As per the Geekbench listing, the Galaxy M20 will be running on the company's own Exynos 7885 chipset with 3GB RAM. The Octa-core chipset maximum clocking speed is 1.6Ghz.
The device recently appeared on AnTuTu listing which suggests it will have Full HD+ display panel with 1080 x 2340 pixels resolution. As OS the device is pre-installed with Android Oreo 8.1. The device native storage will be 32GB.
The Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 are expected to be officially announced in Q1 2019. Both the phones will be Samsung's new entry-level offering for 2019 to compete well against budget-friendly options from Chinese companies.
