As you can see, the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M10 are basically siblings, with the former being the more powerful. The two have almost the same screen size but the M20 will appeal more to those who prefer a high-resolution screen at FHD+ or 409ppi. The M10, on the other hand, settled with HD+ or 270ppi.
Those who want to store more files or apps will like the M20 as it offers 32GB and 64GB of storage, while the M10 has 16GB and 32GB of storage. Both, however, have dedicated microSD card slots so expansion wouldn’t affect dual-SIM users.
Camera-wise, the two have the same camera specs at the rear, having a 13MP main shooter and a 5MP 120-degree wide-angle. It’s different though for the front camera, with the M20 having a higher 8MP compared to the M10’s 5MP.
The two are almost the same when it comes to connections, with 4G LTE support, Dual VoLTE, and WiFi. The M20 though gets Bluetooth 5.0, unlike the M10 which is stuck at 4.2. As for other features, the M20 gets a USB Type-C and a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The M10 uses a microUSB standard and doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner.
Powering the M20 is the new Exynos 7904 chipset, up to 4GB of RAM, and a massive 5,000mAh battery with fast charging. The M10, on the other hand, is pretty toned down with an old Exynos 7870, up to 3GB of RAM, and a smaller 3,400mAh battery. Clearly, the M20 is the best choice if you long-lasting performance.
As for their pricing, the two devices come out very competitive as well and should get the attention of budget-conscious consumers in the Philippines. That is if they can maintain the pricing close to the India SRP.
