We are back with some news from Samsung. And this time, it’s not the Galaxy S10 that we are going to talk about. A report has surfaced online that suggests that Samsung is planning to replace its mid-range line-up of On-Series and J-series with the brand new M-series smartphones in the coming few months.
The speculations about the new upcoming series started when Galaxy M2 was spotted in a benchmark listing last week and its key specifications were revealed. Two models of the smartphone – SM-M205F and SM-M305F – were spotted last week and now a device with model number SM-M105F has been spotted on Geekbench.
According to initial reports, the smartphones from Samsung’s new range would be called M2 and 3. However, the latest reports have claimed that the devices would be called as M20 and M30. The latest device that was spotted on Geekbench by MySmartPrice is said to be the lowest mode of Samsung’s Galaxy M-series and reports suggest that it will be called M10.
The Geekbench listing of SM-M105F or Samsung Galaxy M10 reveals some of the key specifications of the device. According to the Geekbench listing, the smartphone would be powered by Exynos 7870 SoC and will come with 3GB of RAM. It is worth noticing that this is the same processor that is used to power other popular Samsung smartphones like the Galaxy J7 (2017), the Galaxy J7 NXT, and the Galaxy A6 (2018). The listing further reveals that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M10 smartphone runs Android 8.1 Oreo. The Geekbench scores of Galaxy M10 smartphone have also been shared. While it scored a 724 in single core test, it managed a 3,637 in multi-core test.
As of now, no other details about the upcoming smartphone are available. But we expect more leaks and reports about it to surface as the launch of the device draws closer. While it has been reported that the M-series would replace Samsung’s J-series and On-series, the South Korean technology giant is also working on revamping its A-series. This year saw the launch of Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) and Galaxy A9 (2018) mobile phones that come with triple and quad rear camera setups respectively. We would have to wait and watch the brand’s strategy to compete with its Chinese rivals.
