The Galaxy M31 is also cheaper than the Galaxy M31s for the base model. We take a look at what exactly are the differences between the Galaxy M31 and the Galaxy M31s in this detailed comparison.

    One distinct difference between the phones is the front camera. On the Galaxy M31s you get the punch-hole camera while the Galaxy M31s has a notch that houses the front camera.
