Forget about the Samsung Galaxy S10 or even the new Galaxy Fold this model, the M series, Samsung’s budget smartphone recently launched in India, could well be there biggest seller in 2019. It is rumoured to be on the way to Europe and the US very soon.
So its definitely been a busy month for Samsung, with the recent release of all the details for the flagship S10 range as well as the brilliantly bonkers folding phone but we believe both of these models will be eclipsed in terms of sales by the M series.
Those outside of India may not be to aware of this model, but its recent release there and the likely rollout to the rest of the world soon could mean that in terms of units sold this may be Samsung’s most popular smartphone of 2019. We have manages to get our hands on one of these- check out the video review below.
Developed as a budget smartphone to directly compete with the likes of Huawei and Xiaomi this can be bought in india from just 7990 Rupees and likely to be available in the UK for £120 and US for $115 (not confirmed)
There is generally a feel that smartphones have become too expensive and certainly in developing markets like india a budget phone is essential.
But its not just the subcontinent where this will be popular, those without the budget or just not willing to trade bucket loads of cash for a phone will also have their eyes on this, for many users this one will do absolutely everything they need, calls, photos, video, social media and internet browsing, and at a tenth of the cost of the flagship models, we are certain more people will be heading down this road.
Will you consider a cheaper model phone?
