Samsung has officially announced a new M-series smartphone – Galaxy M62 – in the Malaysian market. Despite being launched under a new moniker, this device is essentially a rebranded model of the Samsung Galaxy F62 which was launched in India last month.
Upfront, the Samsung Galaxy M62 is built around a 6.7-inches Super AMOLED Inifinity-O display which sports a FHD+ screen resolution and has an impressive 32 megapixels front-facing camera for selfie and video-calling purposes.
Around the back, there’s a squarish camera island which houses a quad-camera setup consisting of a 64 megapixels primary shooter, 12 megapixels ultra-wide lens, 5 megapixels macro camera, as well as a 5 megapixels depth sensor.
Under the hood, the Galaxy M62 is powered by a slightly dated Exynos 9825 chipset which was also used in the Galaxy Note 10 series flagship. This will be accompanied by up to 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage which can be further expanded via a microSD card.
Keeping its lights on is none other than a huge 7,000mAh battery which carries support for 25W fast-charging. Aside from that, other notable features also include its support for Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, as well as the presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
In the Malaysian market, the Galaxy M62 is priced at RM1,999 (US$494) for its sole 8GB+256GB model and is available in both Blue and Black colorways.
