Samsung’s upcoming M series is expected to be the company’s way to bring more affordable phones into the market and challenge Chinese brands that have had an easier game in the past years with their better priced and appealing handsets.
The first device to possibly start the new lineup of M phone is the Samsung Galaxy M2 that appeared today over on the benchmark app AnTutu. According to the app listing, a device with code name SM-M20SF was benchmarked and as it always happens, most of the hardware it comes with it is now public.
So we can start with the display resolution, which is where we have a big step up from previous entry-level phones, they did indeed pack only HD+ panels, while the leaked M2 is boasting a Full HD+ display.
Along with the higher res screen, it’ll also get a better Samsung Exynos 7885 chipset with a Mali G71 GPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (hopefully expandable). Finally the smartphone also runs Android 8.1 Oreo and scored 107452 points on the benchmark.
Samsung’s M series appears to bring some improvements over the J series currently on the market, which is what it’s expected to replace. Will it succeed? Let’s wait it gets released to find out!
