Samsung has released two new phones to its M-series. The Samsung Galaxy M01 and Samsung Galaxy M11. The Samsung Galaxy M01 Price is ~$120/₹8,999 ~ N45,000. You can order from any of the popular retail stores.
These devices or per se the entire M series were specifically created by Samsung in response to serious competition in the Indian Market. The M series contains quite a variety of budget phones that can boost the Samsung market for budget phones.
The Galaxy M01 and the Galaxy M11 are intended to compete with Xiaomi Redmi 8A, Redmi 8, Redmi, Redmi Note 7S, and other budget phones. Its main attractions are the small-bezel screens and screen cut-outs. The M11 is fitted with a punch hole, while the M01 comes with an infinity V display.
It is expected to be available in Nigerian retail stores in few more weeks or possibly not.
I’m going to briefly talk about the Samsung Galaxy M01 – Which I call “tha economical phone”.

The new Galaxy M-series indeed mean a major value to users when compared to past Samsung J series phones that had previously been offered in this price range, but it is clear that the rate at which Xiaomi is releasing quality budget phones, Samsung has no choice but to also do the same or else the market for quality budget phones will be taken from them.
As far as I’m concern, this device is good for its price.
