Samsung has simply made the Galaxy M44 official for its residence market of South Korea, although not below that title. Over there it is referred to as Galaxy Bounce 3, however it ought to be the identical cellphone that we’ll (hopefully) quickly see internationally because the M44 – the “M44” a part of the SM-M446KZKAKTC mannequin quantity provides it away as an M44 below one other title.
The design is strictly what you’d count on from a Samsung mid-ranger in late 2023, with three digicam circle-islands on the again and a round LED flash to the proper in between the topmost and the center cameras. The display screen has a V or U formed notch (we nonetheless cannot inform the distinction) and a considerably thicker backside bezel than the remaining.
All par for the course, then. What is not in any approach standard to see in such a tool is the chipset it is powered by – the Snapdragon 888. That SoC was launched in 2020, and we will solely assume that Samsung had just a few mendacity round gathering mud in a warehouse someplace and eventually determined to place them to good use now.
Those that aren’t followers of the Exynos 1xxx line will certainly breathe a sigh of reduction, as even when the 888 is three years previous, it was the highest-end chip of its time within the Android world, so efficiency ought to be greater than you’d usually count on from an M4x machine.
The Galaxy M44 launched in South Korea pairs that chip with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a 6.58″ 1080×2408 PLS LCD display screen with 120 Hz refresh charge, a 50 MP fundamental rear digicam flanked by two 2 MP sensors, a 13 MP selfie snapper, and a 5,000 mAh battery. It measures 167.7 x 78 x 9.1 mm and weighs 216g.
