While not as commonly available as the Galaxy A series, the Galaxy M series has steadily spread across the globe, but is a series of smartphones specifically designed for the Indian market. The Galaxy M31s is a follow-up to last year’s M31, but its predecessor features several notable upgrades.
It ‘s certainly a low-end smartphone that borders on the mid-range but at first glance you ‘d be hard-pressed to say. With an FHD+ Super AMOLED display with the first Infinity-O punch hole on a M series screen, the device measures in at 6.5 inches. It’s also a flat display which is always a huge usability bonus.
You can find the Exynos 9611 chipset paired with 6 or 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB base of storage inside the Galaxy M31s — which can be expanded via micro SD card. This cheap smartphone will come along with a whopping 6,000mAh battery as is often the case. Nonetheless, more good news because the Galaxy M31s will come in the box with a 25W fast charger.
The rear quad-camera setup consists of a 64-megapixel main sensor, a 12-megapixel ultra-wide – angle lens, a 5-megapixel macro-lens, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. On the edge, a 32-megapixel selfie camera comes with the Infinity-O notch. Not a poor choice for an inexpensive device like this.
We ‘re not sure whether the Samsung Galaxy M31s are going to global markets, or when. It’s exclusive to India for now, with a release date of August 6. This will be available for the 6GB/128 GB and 8Gb/128GB in Mirage Black and Mirage Blue starting at INR 19,499 (~$260) and INR 21,499 (~$286), respectively.
