Design and Display

The Galaxy M20 is the second variant in the new Galaxy M series. Samsung gives you a 6.3-inch Display with a 19:9  touchscreen, 1080 x 2340 pixels. It also comes with an 83.6% screen-to-body ratio.

Samsung jumps on the latest trend this year and abandons the apple rectangular notch in favor of a teardrop notch which houses the selfie camera, light sensor, and receiver.

The Galaxy M20 comes with a different design from the regular devices in the non-flagship Galaxy Line Up. And it is available in different color options.

At the back of the device, you get to see the dual camera coupled with the fingerprint sensors and the company’s logo sit at the bottom of the design.

The phone is simply amazing. The phone weighs just 183g, which I feel is a little bit heavy but I’m guessing that might have to do with the battery as phones with bigger battery power seem to have more weight.

Camera and Connectivity

 

Apart from the premium feeling and all the other design aesthetics you can find on the Galaxy M20 design, the Samsung Galaxy M20 Android Smartphone like most of the devices from Samsung still comes arrives with a great rear camera, the sensors and lenses have also been incredibly improved.

The Galaxy M20 comes with a dual camera set up at the back, which includes a 16-megapixels AF + secondary 5-megapixels for depth sensor capturing.

The back camera is also supported by an LED flash, HDR, panorama. While the front shooter comes with an 8 megapixels camera with f/2.0 aperture and it can record videos in 1080 at 30fps.

However, both cameras support Beauty mode, Scene detection, HDR, Night shots, and many more.

The Samsung Galaxy M20 comes with 4G support, while other connectivity options include includes WiFi, WiFi hotspot, WiFi direct, Bluetooth v5.0, the classic 3.5mm audio jack, USB support.

 

Performance and Battery

The device is powered by an Octa-Core Exynos 7870  processor. However, there’s no official word yet on if there are bloatware apps on the device that can be uninstalled with the single touch of a button.

The main selling point of the Galaxy M20  is the beast of a battery it comes with -a 5000 mAh battery. Although there are phones with bigger battery life like the Oukitel K10000 with a 10000mAh battery the battery of this device is definitely something to be hyped up about.

According to Samsung, The device will come in 2 variants one with 64GB of inbuilt storage while another will come with 32GB of inbuilt storage, that allows you to store as many files as you want to like your documents, apps, games, music, movies/stash, and even your best photos.

But if you feel the space availability is not an enough, you can expand it up to 512GB via a dedicated micro SD card slot. Now that’s a lot of storage, you can check Microdia’s 512GB Memory card though if you are looking for the maximum storage option.

I’m a bit excited that it will run on Android 9.0 pie out of the box considering this is 2019 and most of us haven’t even tested out Android 9.0 Pie so it’s a worthy addition to the list of phones running on Android 9.0 pie. It might come with Samsung’s most recent TouchWiz UI with newer features that bring smoother and smarter operation, quicker fingerprint sensor usage, and a faster system navigation gesture

Like I mentioned before, the Galaxy, M20  is powered by a 5000mAh battery, and it is enough to last a day and a half on a single charge.

The device also has fast charging technology, so all you have to do is plug in your device and wait for a few hours to get it fully charged for the next use.
