The M32 is the first phone in the price range to offer a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED display with 90Hz refresh rate. Since the screen has up to 800 nits brightness, outdoor visibility is good, and the viewing angles are good as well. The display is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Compared to Exynos 7 Series 9611 10nm processor in the predecessor, this uses Helio G80 12nm SoC with up to 6GB LPDDR4x of RAM and up to 128GB eMMC storage, compared to UFS 2.1 in the M31. It runs Android 11 with Samsung One UI 3.1 on top. Instead of One UI Core in some budget Galaxy smartphones, this runs full One UI with support for Knox security, Secure Folder and Alt Z Samsung solution. It only has Samsung Pay mini, and not the full Samsung Pay.
The phone has a 20-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture on the front inside the Infinity-U style notch, while the M31 has a 32-megapixel camera.
On the right there is a power button that combines the fingerprint scanner and the volume rockers is present above it. It has dedicated dual SIM and microSD slots on the left, arranged in a single tray. On the bottom there is a 3.5mm audio jack, USB Type-C Port, primary microphone and a loudspeaker grill. There is a secondary microphone at the top.
As for the camera, it has quad rear camera setup which consists of a 64MP main camera with LED flash, f/1.8 aperture, 8MP 123° ultra-wide angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture, 2MP depth sensor with f/2.2 aperture for Live Focus and a 2MP macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. It supports up to 1080p video recording both from front and rear cameras, compared to 4k recording in M31. Check out some camera samples below.
The phone has a plastic back which attracts fingerprints easily since it is glossy and is also prone to scratches. It doesn’t come with a case in the box, so it is recommended to get one. The phone is 9.3mm thick and weighs 196 grams, mainly due to the huge 6000mAh battery. Even though the phone comes bundled with a 15W charger, it supports 25W charger, but you have to spend Rs. 2000 extra.
It starts at Rs. 14,999 for the 4GB RAM with 64GB storage version and will be available from Amazon.in, Samsung.com and all key retail stores starting from June 28th. Buyers also get a cashback worth INR 1250 while paying with ICICI cards.
