Samsung Galaxy M20 tipped with extra-large 5,000 mAh battery, not-so-chunky body
It’s crystal clear that the mid-range segment is Samsung’s biggest problem, with an overhauled and rebranded budget-friendly portfolio reportedly looking to turn things around next year.
A couple of Galaxy M-series devices seem to be right around the corner, and while they’re obviously unlikely to adopt modern high-end trends like in-display fingerprint recognition, quad camera arrangements or Infinity-O designs, they may still be able to offer decent features for their presumably low price points.
We’re talking dual rear-facing cameras, a waterdrop-style notch, and according to a new AllAboutSamsung report in Germany (translated here), a massive 5,000 mAh battery as well for the Samsung Galaxy M20.
Several companies, including Asus, Motorola, and Xiaomi, have already crossed the 5,000 mAh barrier for a few non-flagship Android handsets, but Samsung has yet to pursue this particular specification race.
Of course, the Galaxy Note 9 can keep the lights on for quite a long time on a single charge, despite packing “only” 4,000 mAh battery capacity. An energy-efficient processor and fine-tuned software are sometimes just as important as a gigantic cell for real-life endurance numbers, so the Galaxy M20 may or may not eclipse the Note 9 with its battery life.
Either way, it’s definitely good to hear Samsung will soon try to improve its struggling mid-end product lineup in a number of different areas. If today’s report proves accurate, the Galaxy M20 will also feature a single 8MP selfie shooter, dual 13 + 5MP rear-facing cameras, and overall measurements of 156.4 x 74.5 x 8.8 mm.
The screen size is unspecified for the time being, but the M20 should squeeze somewhere between the 6-inch Galaxy A6s and 6.4-inch Galaxy A8s with a slightly thicker profile than the former and a shorter and narrower body compared to the latter mid-ranger.
