The Samsung Galaxy M10 will be the smallest of the new M-series, but that doesn’t make it less relevant. Leaked specs by way of a manual show that it will have a 6.2” screen (720p+) with a teardrop notch (the so-called Infinity V).
The nfo suggests that the chipset will be an Exynos 7872, not 7870 as Geekbench reported. This means a move from eight A53 cores to 2x A73 + 4x A53 and a newer, more capable GPU as well. The phone will come in versions with 2GB and 3GB of RAM and will have a dual SIM slot with a dedicated spot for a microSD card.
The Galaxy M10 will pack a relatively large battery at 3,400mAh, but sadly it will be charged over microUSB. At least there’s a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone will measure 155.6 x 75.6 x 7.7mm and weigh 160g.
Like the other M-phones, this will have a dual camera on the back – a 13MP main module (f/1.9, 1.12µm) plus a 5MP depth sensor. There’s no fingerprint reader on the back.
The phone will launch with Android 8.1 Oreo and will not have NFC. No 5GHz Wi-Fi either, but there is an FM radio receiver.
The Galaxy M phones, M10 included, will be unveiled on January 28 and will be online exclusives.
Samsung Galaxy M10: Revealed Specifications
According to the leaked specifications, the smartphone will come with a 6.2-inch LCD display with an HD+ resolution. Under the hood, it will be powered by Exynos 7872 chipset. The chipset was announced last year, but the Galaxy M10 will be the first smartphone to feature it. Moreover, the smartphone will be available in 2GB RAM and 3GB RAM variants. As of now, the storage details still haven’t been revealed.
This new Galaxy M smartphone will further be boosted by a 3,400mAh battery. It will run on the Android 8.1 Oreo OS. On the camera end, the smartphone features a dual camera setup which will include a 13-megapixel primary sensor and a 5-megapixel secondary sensor. These sensors will come without the autofocus feature. The selfie camera specifications have still not been revealed as of yet. Seeing these specifications, it is easy to guess that the Galaxy M10 will be one of the budget mobile phones to be priced around Rs 10000.
