Samsung Galaxy M31 Review: Quad Rear Cameras & Massive 6,000mAh Battery

Samsung Galaxy M31 is a new mid-range smartphone by Samsung with quad rear cameras, Exynos 9611 SoC, and 6,000mAh battery. Here is our initial Samsung Galaxy M31 review.

Unlike the Galaxy A series with many new technologies and eye-catching design, the Galaxy M has a large battery capacity, decent hardware configuration, and affordable price. To increase competition in the mid-range segment in the first half of 2020, Samsung introduced the Samsung Galaxy M31 in India earlier this month. It is mainly upgraded in terms of battery, configuration, and camera in comparison to its predecessors.
