The Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime Edition has been in the media for quite some time now. An early listing by Amazon.in offered us a glimpse of some of the key specs as well as the price. The Korean tech giant has now officially launched the Galaxy M31 Prime edition in India.
The Galaxy M31 prime Edition comes several months after the introduction of the Galaxy M31 back in February and the Galaxy M31s which made its entrance in July.
In terms of the specifications, the Samsung Galaxy M31 Prime Edition comes with the same internal configuration as the Galaxy M31. Just see this as the Prime Edition of the Galaxy M31 perhaps aimed at celebrating Amazon Prime day 2020.
To recall, the Galaxy M31 is fired up by an Exynos 9611 SoC and sports a 6.4-inch FullHD+ Super AMOLED display. For photography, there is a 32MP selfie camera and at the rear, it features a 64MP quad-camera setup.
Proving the interface is the Android 10-based One UI 2.1. The premium mid-range model also comes with a rear-mounted fingerprint reader and gets its juice from a mammoth 6,000 mAh battery with 15W charging.
The Galaxy M31 Prime Edition gets a free 3-month Amazon Prime subscription. It equally comes with an ‘Always On’ Amazon shopping app, which offers quick access to products on Amazon with a right swipe on the home screen. Furthermore, the mobile phone is pre-installed with a dedicated folder that is stuffed with popular Amazon ecosystem apps such as Amazon Shopping, Amazon Prime Video, Amazon Prime Music, Kindle, and Audible.
