Samsung is gearing up to launch a new mid-range smartphone with a 5G support, the Galaxy M44 5G. The phone recently received Bluetooth certification, suggesting that it is close to an official debut. The Galaxy M44 5G will be the successor to the Galaxy M42 5G, which was unveiled in April 2021.
The Galaxy M44 5G is expected to feature a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a waterdrop notch for the 16MP selfie camera. The phone will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, which is the same processor used in Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S23 series. The Snapdragon 888 is an octa-core chip with a 2.84GHz clock speed and an Adreno 660 GPU. The phone will also have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via a microSD card slot.
The Samsung Galaxy M44 5G will have a triple rear camera setup, which includes a 50MP primary sensor, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens and a 5MP macro shooter. The phone will be able to record 1080p videos at 30fps. The phone will also have a fingerprint scanner, NFC and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone will run on Android 14, with Samsung’s One UI 6.0 on top.
The Galaxy M44 5G will pack a massive 6000mAh battery, which will support 25W fast charging. The phone will be available in three color options: Night Blue, Prism Silver and Waterfall Blue. The phone is rumored to be priced at Rs 29,999 in India, which is equivalent to around $200 in the US.
The Galaxy M44 5G will be a competitive offering in the mid-range segment, as it will offer flagship-level performance and features at an affordable price. The phone will compete with other 5G phones in the market, such as OnePlus 9R, Xiaomi 14 Pro, and Vivo iQOO 12 Pro. The phone will also appeal to Samsung fans who want a 5G phone with a large battery and high refresh rate display. The Galaxy M44 5G is expected to launch in late 2023 or early 2024.
