Samsung Galaxy M32 specs leak: A sideways step rather than an upgrade?

Last year’s Galaxy M31 could still be a good option.

  • The specs of the Samsung Galaxy M32 have apparently leaked.
  • The specs show a phone that still has a ton in common with its predecessor.

Samsung’s Galaxy M series has joined the A series in delivering very good budget phones for a while now. It looks like the Galaxy M32 is the latest device ready for release, and the specs have just leaked.

tipster Ishan Agarwal Leaked Galaxy M32 specs in conjunction with 91mobiles, and it doesn’t look like an obvious upgrade from the Galaxy M31. The new phone apparently sports a 6.4-inch FHD+ OLED panel with a notch, a MediaTek Helio G85 SoC, 4GB to 6GB of RAM, 64GB to 128GB of expandable storage, and a 6,000mAh battery.

Photography duties are handled by a quad-camera setup, consisting of a 48MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and a pair of 5MP sensors for macro shots and depth effects. The 20MP camera is said to handle selfies and video calls.

Taken together, it seems that the Galaxy M32 is very similar to the Galaxy M31 that was launched last year. The old phone sports an FHD+ OLED panel, the same 6,000mAh battery and more RAM in the base model. We also see a similar rear camera setup, although the older phone has a 64MP primary sensor.

One major difference is the use of Exynos 9611 in the M31 versus the Helio G85 SoC in the new phone. The MediaTek chipset uses the newer CPU cores (two Cortex-A75 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores) versus the older cores (four Cortex-A73 and four A53 cores) seen in Exynos processors. This should give it an advantage in terms of single-core performance, but older phones may still have an edge in multi-core performance since they still have more heavyweight cores.

Samsung has also posted official picture of the device (seen at the top of the page), reveals a square rear camera housing, striped pattern on the back, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. In any event, we expect the Galaxy M32 to be cheaper than its predecessor, as it doesn’t seem like a major upgrade.
