Samsung Galaxy M20
Samsung Galaxy M20 is Samsung’s answer to the burgeoning threat to its Smartphone throne from Chinese brands like Xiaomi and Huawei. It combines style and performance in a way that has never been seen before in a Samsung phone.
This is also the first of the Samsung phones to adopt a notch but it is not the ugly broad one. It is a small teardrop shaped one that enhanced the aesthetics of the phone instead of ruining it.
