The Galaxy M20 takes an entirely different approach than what we have seen Samsung doing. Samsung Galaxy M20 is the first smartphone from the brand to sport a notch. The notch is a teardrop design which is considered the least intrusive among the other notches. Other than that, there is a small chin at the front, giving it an all screen look. Over at the back of the phone, there is a dual camera setup with an LED Flash. There is a Fingerprint sensor beneath it and a Samsung below the sensor.
Over at the bottom, there is a traditional 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-C post and a microphone along with a speaker grille.
The Galaxy M series is the first smartphone from Samsung to use their Infinity-V display. The screen on the Galaxy M20 is a 6.3-inch PLS TFT display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 px and a Pixel density of 410 ppi and a screen-to-body ratio of 83.6 and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9.
