In addition to teasing the specs, it has also revealed the pricing of the phone, which will begin at around Rs 8,000. It also has a dedicated “Notify Me” button that will send users updates on the device, including when it will be available in India.
The Samsung Galaxy M04 will come with a plastic back and a dual camera setup on the back. It may also have a USB Type-C 2.0 port. It is expected to run on Android 12 and come with a RAM Plus virtual memory technology, which allows the internal memory of the device to be used as RAM. Lastly, the company has promised two years of OS updates, which will include Android 12 Go Edition.
The Samsung Galaxy M04 is expected to have a 5,000mAh battery. It’s likely to have a 6.5-inch HD+ display, and will feature a waterdrop notch on the front. The front camera will feature a 5MP lens. The rear panel will be fitted with dual cameras, and will come with a LED flash.
