Samsung is breaking new ground: Instead of reserving popular high-end features only for the expensive upper class, the South Korean mobile phone manufacturer is now making the entry-level and middle class better. The first smartphone of this new strategy is the Galaxy M31s.
Two trends have dominated the mobile communications market for several years: top smartphones such as the iPhone or Samsung’s Galaxy S are becoming more and more expensive; on the other hand, entry-level and mid-range smartphones are catching up and no longer have to hide from the flagships. The new Samsung Galaxy M31s is undoubtedly a representative of the latter trend.
Samsung Galaxy M31s with Infinity-O display and quick charger
In its new entry-level smartphone, Samsung has integrated four functions that potential cell phone buyers can only find in more expensive cell phones, reports SamMobile. The shapely Infinity-O-Display, for example, which brings along a central camera hole. Samsung has saved this type of screens in the past for the higher-priced Galaxy A and S series. The diagonal is 6.5 inches, the resolution is Full HD +. The basis is the bright Super AMOLED technology.
Another novelty in this price range at Samsung: the 25-watt quick charger, which is included in the scope of delivery. So the lush 6,000 mAh battery should be quickly recharged. And to top it off, there are two camera modes, “Single Take” and “Night Hyperlapse”, which are otherwise only found in more expensive Samsung smartphones.
