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.
