And Samsung Galaxy M31 has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Important update: this model is updated to Android version 12.
Check the availability of the update version in your region on the manufacturer’s website.

Android version and market relevance

New smartphone from the company Samsung got the name Samsung Galaxy M31 and was announced in February 2020 (see all new smartphones 2020). This model is released in the series of smartphones Samsung Galaxy M.

Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M31 works out of the box under the operating system Android version 10. Not every android smartphone boasts that it can be updated to a newer version, but in our case the model Samsung Galaxy M31 updated to Android version 12 (look in the catalog all smartphones on Android 12).

In addition the Samsung Galaxy M31 — is a smartphone for 2 SIM cards, which is ideal if you use the services of several mobile operators. But this model has one weak point — it does not support 5G networks, which can significantly increase the speed of receiving and sending data to the network. If such a requirement for a smartphone is relevant for you today, then we have collected in the catalog all smartphones with support for 5G networks at any price and from different manufacturers.

Screen, body and battery

The most important thing you need to know about the case and form factor Samsung Galaxy M31. The body is quite compact and the screen occupies almost all of its area from edge to edge (from 80% to 90% of the area of the case). There is a cutout above the screen to take up even more space on the front of the case. As you have seen in the photo, here is a drop-like cutout for a selfie camera. On the front side of the case is located huge Super AMOLED-screen with diagonal 6.4″. At the same time, a battery with a capacity of 6 000 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

A few words about the cameras that have Samsung Galaxy M31. The main camera, located on the back, received several modules (triple camera smartphones): 64 MP Wide + 8 MP UltraWide + 5 MP Macro + 5 MP Depth sensor. And by the way, the camera’s multiple lenses are an interesting feature. What does it give you? Additional modules also take a picture during the «shutter release». And then the smartphone, using special algorithms, processes images from all cameras to optimize and improve the final photo. And with several cameras, you can shoot more interesting photos, for example, with the bokeh effect (this is when the subject in the foreground is in focus, and the background is blurred). The main camera we would rate perfectly for being one of the best cameras on the market.

The frontcamera is also in Samsung Galaxy M31. It is located in front of the screen and has one module: 32 MP Wide. These characteristics you will definitely have enough to make your selfie photos in different lighting conditions. This model does not really stand out in terms of body design (in the context of the front camera). Therefore, I would like to tell you that there are smartphones with pop-up front camera. How it works? The front camera is located inside the body and slides up only when you activate the front camera mode. You take a selfie photo or video, exit the «Camera» application and the camera panel begins to slide down into the body. Everything is simple and interesting enough.

Processor and Internal Memory

The smartphone performance is affected by a lot of factors, and even more so on the android-smartphone, where the developer of the Android operating system and the device manufacturer are absolutely different companies and each develops with its strategy in the market. As a result, in the smartphone you get a hodgepodge: it′s like a “clean” Android, but with a shell from the manufacturer; as though only the necessary applications, but also many unnecessary from the manufacturer. Very often Android-installed apps by default, which you do not even use, are still running and working, they occupy part of the RAM and processor time of your smartphone. This slows the work of other applications and the battery charge is wasted.

So, in Samsung Galaxy M31 is installed 8-core processor on the chipset Exynos 9611 (10nm). As for RAM, the memory module is used here 6 GB, but if this is not enough for you, then there is a version for 8 GB. You can choose the right version of the smartphone, but note that the price of these versions is different.

You can store your photos, videos, music and applications both on the built-in smartphone memory, and on memory cards microSDXC. The manufacturer releases several versions of this smartphone with different memory sizes: 64/128 GB. Before buying, be sure to decide how many gigabytes you need.

Price for Samsung Galaxy M31: buy or not to buy?

Price Samsung Galaxy M31 at the start of sales was $245. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Below average smartphones from $200 to $300” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is very cool with a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

If you want to buy Samsung Galaxy M31, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
