A few months ago, in February, Samsung introduced its new Galaxy S20 family for the most enthusiastic user, but they were not the only devices that South Koreans showed. They also taught members of the mid-range, and we already know the launch date and price of the Samsung Galaxy M31.
The Samsung M family was born last year and is the series, according to the company, for millennials. They are affordable phones that stand out for good cameras, screens created to view content, and, above all, a huge battery. Before going on to detail the characteristics of the terminal. We remind you of the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy M31, which now arrives in our European countries:
|performance||Samsung Exynos 9611 Octa core|
|display||6.4″ (16.21 cm)|
SuperAMOLED large screen FullHD + and drop-type notch
If we see the characteristics of the Galaxy M31, one of the sections that stand out the most is the screen. It mounts a 6.4 “SuperAMOLED panel with FullHD + resolution, which translates to 2,340 x 1,080 pixels. The density of pixels is 403 pixels per inch, and the aspect ratio is what we have seen in many devices, 19.5: 9. It is a screen created to view content and, without a doubt, one of the best elements of the terminal.
The notch is of the drop type, and the panel occupies 84.1% of the front. In terms of dimensions, we have a somewhat comprehensive profile with its 8.9 millimeters, and robust due to 191 grams of weight. In the back, we find a camera module reminiscent of the S20, and a fingerprint reader in the central part of the device.
Exynos 9611 with 6 GB of RAM and massive battery
If we go inside, the Galaxy M31 has the Exynos 9611 processor. It is an eight-core processor with four at 2.3 GHz and another four at 1.7 GHz. It is a processor created by Samsung and accompanied by 6 GB of RAM. This hardware will be “controlled” by Samsung’s OneUI 2.0 software. It is a layer that operates on Android 10, so it has all the recent Google security patches.
However, what is most striking is the battery. The device has a 6,000 mAh battery that explains the thickness of the terminal. It is a battery that must give for two days of intensive use without problems, making the Samsung Galaxy M31 one of the freest phones on the market. The load is 15 W.
Samsung Galaxy M31 – Four cameras with 64 Mpx primary sensor
The camera is vital for the target users of this terminal, and Samsung has wanted to give versatility. The Galaxy M31 does not have a telephoto, but it has a four-camera module consisting of:
- 64-megapixel primary sensor with PDAF focus and f1.8 aperture. It has a focal length of 26 millimeters.
- It features a 12-millimeter f2.2 8-megapixel wide-angle for both landscapes and group photography.
- The third sensor is a 5 megapixel to calculate depth.
- The fourth is a macro sensor, also 5 megapixel f2.4.
In addition to the photographic section, Samsung has wanted to enhance the video with 4K recording, hyper-lapse, and slow-motion modes. It is also compatible, in a 1,080p video, with a “Super Stable” mode, which stabilizes the footage using an EIS system.
On the front, Samsung has mounted a 32-megapixel sensor with f2.0 aperture and a focal length of 26 millimeters. Given the characteristics of the terminal, it is time to see when it will go on sale. Samsung will launch it on May 6 for 279 euros. We’ll see how it goes in sales, but of course, it has a screen and a battery out of the ordinary in that price range. It will arrive in Just Red, Ocean Blue, and Space Black colors.
