Samsung has finally revealed the first-ever Galaxy M series phone of 2020, the Samsung Galaxy M31.

Like its predecessor, the Samsung Galaxy M31 carries a huge 6,000mAh battery capacity and improved camera prowess. In addition, it comes with OneUI 2.0 and Android 10 operating system out of the box.

The Samsung Galaxy M31 also has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Full HD+ screen and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. There’s still the waterdrop notch from last year, which now houses its new 32-megapixel selfie camera.

On the back, we can see that the Samsung Galaxy M31 has a quad-camera setup. It’s composed of a big 64-megapixel primary sensor equipped with the brand’s own Tetracell pixel binning technology, 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 5-megapixel depth and macro lenses. There’s also a fingerprint sensor on its polycarbonate rear panel.



Powering the Samsung Galaxy M31 is an Exynos 9611 processor paired with 6GB of RAM. Built-in UFS 2.1 storage options are 128GB and 64GB, but it can be expanded further by using a microSD card.

The only problem here is it only has a slow 15W fast charging support. Because of its massive 6,000mAh battery capacity, it will probably take a long time before it gets fully charged. Other features included are FM radio, 3.5mm audio jack, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and 4G LTE.

Samsung Galaxy M31 has a starting price of INR14,999, which translates to around Php10,700 for the 4GB + 64GB base model. Meanwhile, the 6GB + 128GB variant costs INR15,999 or ~Php11,400. Pricing and availability in the Philippines are currently unknown.

  1. For 4 years, I’ve been using Samsung Galaxy C9 Pro, which was not launched here in the Philippines, now again this Samsung Galaxy M31 will be the same, why Samsung seems prioritizing India for good midrage phones?
