It’s here! Samsung has announced that they will be coming up with new mid-range smartphones and one of them is the brand new Samsung Galaxy M20 – and it is officially here in Malaysia!
Samsung Malaysia has entrusted Shopee Malaysia to be the sole distributor of the brand new Samsung Galaxy M20 smartphone. That means the Galaxy M20 can only be purchased online from Shopee.
The Samsung Galaxy M20 comes packed with this list of specs:
- 6.3-inch PLS TFT display with Infinity-V notch
- 2340×1080 pixels with 19.5:9 aspect ratio
- Exynos 7904 chipset
- Mali-G71 MP2 GPU
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB internal storage; expandable with dedicated microSD card slot
- Dual rear-facing cameras
- 13MP f/1.9 main camera with PDAF
- 5MP f/2.2 ultrawide angle camera
- 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera
- 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging (USB-C)
- Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.5
From the specs alone, you can tell that the Samsung Galaxy M20 is looking to be quite a formidable mid-ranger, especially in the battery department. This is the first ever Samsung smartphone to pack in a 5,000mAh with support for their 15W charger that is found in the Galaxy S and Galaxy Note series.
Of course, since it is technically the same technology as the flagship counterparts, the Galaxy M20 also has a USB-C port in contrast with the should-be-defunct micro USB port. Good move, Samsung.
Of course, Samsung also retained the 3.5mm audio jack and a physical fingerprint reader at the back of the phone.
The Galaxy M20 is priced at RM799 and is available in both Charcoal Black and Ocean Blue color options starting from 20th March 2019. It is only available in 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage for now. Looking at the price, the Galaxy M20 is offering a unique package compared to what is available in the market for that price point.
There is another similarly-specced phone from Samsung as well, and that is the Samsung Galaxy A30. Of course, there’s an even higher end variant named the Galaxy A50 too.
Shopee is also having some exclusive free gifts for those who purchase the Galaxy M20 early:
- First 1,00 customers: Logitech X50 Bluetooth speaker + JBL T450 headphone
- Next 2,000 customers: Logitech X50 Bluetooth speaker
- First 100 customers: RM100 cash voucher for Samsung Official Store on Shopee only; usable from 21st to 27th March 2019 (Shopee 27.3 Mega Sale).
The launch date of the Galaxy M20 is also to commemorate Samsung’s Super Brand Day that is happening on Shopee Malaysia as well. The Shopee Quiz for Samsung will be happening from 18th to 20th March 2019, where were told that you can win the Galaxy M20 there.
Not only that, there are other cash vouchers for other Samsung products as well. These vouchers will be valid from 18th to 22nd March.
