Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, the two new M-series smartphones aimed at millennials, will go on second flash sale tomorrow at 12:00PM IST. The smartphones were launched in India last month and went on their first sale yesterday. Soon after the sale went live on Amazon India, the Korean company confirmed that the devices have gone out of stock and announced dates for the second sale.

With the M-series, Samsung is revamping its Galaxy J-series portfolio as it concedes ground to Xiaomi and Realme in India’s smartphone market. It is not clear how many units were made available during the first sale, but the company claims to have seen record traffic and sales. Samsung and Amazon are delighted by the unprecedented consumer response to Galaxy M and thank all Galaxy M fans for their love and support.

With this new range of Galaxy M smartphones, Samsung is trying to offer devices with big display, improved cameras, powerful battery and new processor that could challenge Qualcomm’s offering in this segment. The Galaxy M-series has also received a couple of software updates since the launch, suggesting that Samsung plans to support these devices for a longer period of time. Here is everything you need to know about the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20.
