The Samsung Galaxy M series is the first with an Infinity-V display

Samsung's first phones with an Infinity-V display are finally here

At the Samsung Developer Conference in 2018, the company showed off its all-new display times, including the new Infinity-O display, with its hole-punch cutout for the front-facing camera, Infinity-U display, and Infinity-V display. So far, we haven’t seen any phones with the Infinity-V display — until now, that is.

After teasing a new range of phones for India, Samsung has taken the wraps off of the new Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 smartphones. The new devices feature nice, edge-to-edge displays with a small V-shaped cutout for the front-facing camera.

Design and display

Perhaps the most notable thing about the two new phones is their design, thanks to the Infinity-V display. The display on the phones is almost edge-to-edge, though you might note a small chin at the bottom. It’s not huge, but it’s not tiny either. The front-facing camera in the device can be used for Face Unlock features.

The display on the Galaxy M10 comes in at 6.22 inches with a resolution of 1,520 x 720. That’s a little smaller and lower resolution than the Galaxy M20, which boasts a 6.30-inch display and a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080.

On the back, you will find a dual-sensor camera, along with a fingerprint sensor. They’re not bad-looking phones, and while they are a little chunky in some parts, they still look nice and modern.


Perhaps the main difference between the two phones is their specs. Both phones come with a 1.6GHz octa-core processor, but the Galaxy M10 has 16GB of storage and 2GB of RAM while the M20 has 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM. There’s also a difference in battery — while the Galaxy M10 has a battery capacity of 3,400mAh, the Galaxy M20 steps things up to 5,000mAh.

The cameras on the phones are also pretty similar. Both phones offer a dual-sensor camera with one 13-megapixel sensor and one 5-megapixel sensor, while the front-facing camera on the Galaxy M10 comes in at 5 megapixels and the Galaxy M20 comes in at 8 megapixels.

Price and availability

Unfortunately, the two phones are currently only available in India, and we don’t expect that to change any time soon. In India, the Galaxy M10 starts at 7,990 Rupees (around $112), while the Galaxy M20 comes in at 10,990 Rupees (around $155). They’ll be available at Amazon or Samsung’s online store, and come in ocean blue or charcoal black.

It makes sense that Samsung would be focusing more on India. According to Counterpoint, Xiaomi overtook Samsung in market share in India during the fourth quarter of 2017, and in the third quarter of 2018, Xiaomi had a 5 percent lead over Samsung.

I saw the Samsung Galaxy Ring. Here’s what I love (and what I’m worried about)

After announcing the Samsung Galaxy S24 series in January, Samsung ended its big Unpacked event with one big surprise: the Galaxy Ring. Samsung teased a render of its upcoming smart ring, but beyond that, it hasn't said anything since. That is, until now.

Samsung had the Galaxy Ring on display at MWC 2024, and I got a chance to see it for myself. Based on what I saw from the ring, plus a few new things Samsung has confirmed about it, I think Samsung is getting a lot right. There are also clear areas where Samsung is lagging behind the competition.

Samsung has already had a very busy 2024, from launching three new Galaxy S phones to teasing its upcoming Galaxy Ring. Now, we reportedly have our first look at the company's upcoming foldable — the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6.

Early in the morning on February 28, leaker @OnLeaks teamed up with SmartPrix to share design renders of the Fold 6. At first glance, the Fold 6 looks a lot like last year's Galaxy Z Fold 5. There's a narrow 6.2-inch cover screen on the outside, and when the Fold 6 is opened, you get a 7.6-inch inner display. It's reported that the Fold 6's dimensions measure 153.5 x 132.5 x 6.1mm when it's unfolded, making it slightly shorter and wider than the Fold 5.

For many people, a reason to upgrade their smartphone regularly is for the improved camera upgrades that companies include each year for flagship devices.

Both phones are powered with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip for fast performance, come with 8GB–16GB RAM, plenty of storage, and the latest version of Android 14. And to top things off, the cameras on both are impressive, with the OnePlus having slightly better specs.
