This cheapie Samsung phone has a bigger battery than the S20 Ultra

If you’re looking at buying  the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra for its big battery, perhaps you should take a look at this mid-range Galaxy instead. On Tuesday, Samsung announced its Galaxy M31 — the sequel to the M30 and M30s that came before it. While it has impressive internal specs, there’s one thing that stands out: its 6000mAh battery.

It’s fronted by a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch and a 16MP selfie camera.

At the rear, there’s a capacitive fingerprint sensor, and four cameras: a 64MP main snapper, a 5MP macro camera, a 5MP depth sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide camera at the bottom.

Samsung’s also giving the Galaxy M31 some serious internal specs. It’s powered by the middling Exynos 9611 — the same chip used in the Galaxy A51 — but it’s joined by 6GB of RAM and UFS 2.1 storage with either 64GB of 128GB capacity. UFS storage should buff this phone’s access to data for users and apps.

Finally, to charge that 6000mAh battery, Samsung’s giving the Galaxy M31 15W charging via USB-C. A headphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0 support also feature.

All-in-all, it’s a remarkably competent package.

The Galaxy M31 drops in India on 5 March and will be priced from 16 000 rupees — a little over $220.
