The Samsung Galaxy M20 makes its debut in Malaysia with a whopping 5,000mAh battery – a purported first in any smartphone from the South Korean electronics company. 

The large battery capacity is touted as a great selling point for the device, which can reportedly last up to two days in a single charge. 

Combined with the battery’s fast charging capability, Samsung says it will make mobile gaming, watching videos, web browsing, and more a treat on the 6.3in FHD + TFT Infinity-V Display.

Powered by 1.8GHz Exynos 7904 octa-core processor, the chipset is reportedly capable of delivering smooth day-to-day usage and handle graphic intensive games as well.

The mid-level smartphone has dual rear cameras – a 13-megapixel main camera with f/1.9 aperture as well as a 5-megapixel secondary camera with f/2.2 aperture and 120° ultra-wide angle lens.

The ultra-wide mode promises to allow users to capture landscapes, cityscapes and also wefies without any frame restriction.

It also has an 8-megapixel f/2.0 aperture front camera, both for taking selfies as well as to access the smartphone using the Face Unlocking feature, as well as 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

The Galaxy M20 will be exclusively sold online via Shopee Malaysia, a move Samsung Malaysia Electronics president Yonsoo Kim believes keeps up with its consumers’ shopping habits.  

“There is a shift in retail paradigm and consumers are shopping online now more than ever before. Taking this into consideration, we decided to go fully-digital in our sales approach for the new Galaxy M series,” he shares.

Shopee Regional managing director Ian Ho adds, “Consumers these days are more comfortable buying big ticket items like smartphones online, and that is because of the security and value platform like ours bring to the table.”

Priced at RM799, the Samsung Galaxy M20 comes in Charcoal Black and Ocean Blue.

It will be available on Shopee Malaysia starting 9am on March 20. 

The first 1,000 customers will get a Logitech X50 speaker and JBL T450 headphones, while the next 2,000 buyers will get a Logitech X50 speaker. 

The first 100 customers of the day will get an additional RM100 cash voucher valid for their next purchase at the Samsung Official Store on Shopee.
