Samsung’s mid-range lineup gets a new member today, the Galaxy M31. The phone improves upon last year’s M30 and M30s, which went on to become a success for Samsung, partly due to its colossal battery and good cameras. And the Galaxy M31, this time, promises a revamped camera setup while retaining the same huge battery.
The phone greets you with its 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display, similar to what we have seen on M30 and M30s. It has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio achieved through a U-shaped notch that holds a 16MP selfie camera.
At the back is where we see four camera modules. The arrays comprise a 64MP primary shooter with Samsung’s Tetracell pixel binning which outputs 16MP images. Plus there’s an 8MP ultrawide shooter adjoining the 5MP macro and depth lens. Just below the camera is a capacitive fingerprint scanner.
Underneath there’s the Exynos 9611 chipset that goes alongside 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of UFS 2.1 storage which can be expanded via microSD card slot.
The Samsung Galaxy M31 boots on One UI 2 built on top of Android 10 out of the box, while powering the phone is a mammoth 6,000mAh battery. The battery can be charged through a 15W charging adapter over the Type-C port, whilst there’s support for FM Radio and Bluetooth 5.0 as well.
The Samsung Galaxy M31 will be available in India starting March 3 for INR 14,999 for 4/64GB variant and INR 15,999 for the 6/128GB variant. Expect the phone to hit within a week or two in Nepal as well.
