Samsung Galaxy M10 vs Samsung Galaxy M20: Design

Samsung Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20 look exactly like each other. But there are subtle differences. For instance, Samsung Galaxy M20 has a fingerprint sensor on the back whereas Galaxy M10 skips the feature altogether.

Another noticeable difference is the placement of speaker grilles. On M20, it's bottom-facing, sitting next to USB port. On M10, it's on the south of rear panel. Galaxy M20 has a slightly larger screen and a bigger 5,000mAh battery. It also is heavier than Galaxy M10 which houses a smaller 3,400mAh battery.

Other than these, Samsung Galaxy M10 are almost identical. Both have a glossy glass-like finish on the back. Dual-rear camera module is located on the top left corner with Samsung branding at the centre. On the front, both have Infinity-V display, which looks like a modified version of waterdrop notches seen on several other Android phones.
