Samsung Galaxy M31 has surfaced on GeekBench. We already knew this phone was in the works, but we now have a few more details, thanks to the benchmarking site. According to the GeekBench listing, this phone’s model number is Samsung SM-M315F. The listing also reveals that it will come with Exynos 9611, the SoC, which also powers the Samsung Galaxy M30s. This chip’s maximum clock rate is 1.7GHz and has a total of 8 cores. This is totally different from the information we got from previous rumours, which claimed that the Galaxy M31 might come with Snapdragon 665 chipset.
The Galaxy M31 is the successor to the Samsung Galaxy M30. The M30 was popular because of its big battery capacity and pocket-friendly price. A 5000mAh battery powered the Galaxy M30.
As per the GeekBench listing, Samsung M31 will have 6GB of RAM and will be powered by Android 10. The phone scored 348 and 1214 in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively.
That is all the information that the benchmark listing revealed. However, rumours and leaks that surfaced earlier hinted that the Galaxy M31 might come with a quad-lens camera at the back.
Samsung is also reportedly working on Samsung Galaxy M21, Galaxy M41, and the Galaxy M11. Out of all these smartphones, the M11 is expected to be the cheapest, while the M41 is likely to be the most expensive. According to leaks and rumours, the Galaxy M41 will be powered by Exynos 9630 SoC paired with 6GB of RAM. It’s also expected to feature a 64-megapixel camera. The M21, on the other hand, could be powered by Exynos 9630 paired with 4GB of RAM. If Samsung sticks to the trend we have seen in 2019, these phones are expected to feature high capacity batteries.
Samsung has not yet announced the launch date of the New M-series lineup. They will likely be launched within the first few months of 2020.
