The Galaxy M41 was previously tipped to have been dropped, with the Galaxy M51 supposedly taking its place.
We’ve heard reports recently that Samsung was already slated to ditch the Galaxy M41 due to the problematic production of its OLED panels. Now, it appears that the Korean tech giant is scrapping such a plan and continuing with its release.
This time around, the Samsung Galaxy M41 has purportedly cleared its 3C certification. Apart from its listing indicating that the phone well alive and kicking, its presence on the site also revealed some of the juiciest tidbits surrounding Samsung’s next bang-for-your-buck smartphone.
Accordingly, the upcoming device will arrive with a massive 6,800mAh battery. The said capacity is still unheard of among its mainstream compatriots. If this holds up until its eventual release, then the phone could very well be the first phone to launch with this headline-grabbing feature.
Not your regular bulky phone
The Galaxy M41’s rumored battery has also been leaked separately with an accompanying image. If we are to believe the image, the battery appears to be no larger than those that generate standard phones. As it is, this type of sizing shouldn’t make this phone bulky.
Galaxy M41 rumored features and specifications
If Samsung is still launching the phone, alongside its previous plans, then it is likely that the handset will make use of TCL’s China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) flexible OLED panel.
The Galaxy M41 is also pegged to feature a 6.67-inch display with a resolution of 1,080 x 2,340 pixels and 19:5:9 aspect ratio. Note that this is quite a shift from the Galaxy M40’s 6.3-inch LCD screen.
Under the proverbial hood, the device is speculated to be powered by Samsung’s in-house Exynos 9630 SoC. The phone is then set to be coupled with up to 6GB of RAM. If it pans out, then this, too, is a significant modification from its predecessor’s Qualcomm chipset.
For its optics front, the Galaxy M41 is, reportedly, launching with a 64MP primary sensor on its rear. This is then going to be paired with a 12MP ultra-wide sensor and a 5MP depth lens for portraits shots.
Like virtually all of Samsung’s releases as of late, the Galaxy M41 is also expected to ship with One UI 2.0, based on the current Android 10.0 OS.
With the Galaxy M41’s latest listing, it is suggested that the phone’s release could just be around the corner.
