Previously, we’ve heard reports that Samsung is refreshing their Galaxy A lineup for next year, with models rocking monikers like Galaxy A11, A21, A31, A41, A51, A61, A71, and A81. And now it appears that the Korean tech giant is also breathing fresh air into their Galaxy M series in the form of Galaxy M21, M31, and M41. As the name suggests, they will be the successor models to existing Galaxy M20, M30, and M40 respectively.
A new leak, courtesy of Sudhanshu Ambhore (@Sudhanshu1414 on Twitter), may have confirmed the existence of the devices and gives us an idea of what to expect from them. The most powerful variant of the incoming budget offerings — Galaxy M41 — will come equipped with a yet-to-release Exynos 9630 chipset. This chipset was earlier rumored to power Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A51 and A71 smartphones, which are expected to launch sometime next year. For the uninitiated, the Exynos 9630 chipset will be the successor to this year’s 9610 chipset that powers Galaxy A50. Other known specs of Galaxy M41 include 6GB RAM and triple rear camera setup consisting of a 64MP main sensor, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, and a 5MP depth sensor.
Moving onto Galaxy M31, it is said to be powered by the recently released Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset. The chipset is also rumored to power one of the most anticipated budget smartphones of this year, the Realme 5. Besides that, it is known to have 6GB of RAM and a triple camera setup similar to Galaxy M41 except for the main camera which is a 48MP sensor.
The cheapest of the three — Galaxy M21 — will come equipped with Samsung’s recently released Exynos 9609 chip. This is the same chipset that powers recently launched Motorola One Vision and the one that is expected to power the incoming One Action. It will also have 4GB of RAM, and dual cameras (24MP main and 5MP depth sensors) on the rear.
