With the Galaxy M34, Samsung provides a segment-leading Android update commitment, which is an uncommon benefit.
Samsung has recently announced the Galaxy M34 5G in India as their new under-Rs. 20,000 offering. Its primary selling points are an optically stabilized main camera with excellent low-light capabilities, a vibrant display, and a large battery. The Galaxy M34 5G comes in two variants: a 6GB RAM and 128GB configuration that costs Rs. 16,999, and an 8GB RAM and 128GB configuration that costs Rs. 18,999. According to Samsung, these are initial rates that include bank incentives. Let’s take a deeper look at what this phone has to offer.
The Samsung Galaxy M34 5G, like the Galaxy F54 5G, is a large smartphone. However, considering the price, it appears to be well-built and may perhaps pass for a phone in a better sector. The shape of the camera module is identical to that of the Galaxy F54 and even the Galaxy S23. Although the phone is weighty because of its 6,000mAh battery, the plastic shell is easy to grip. The fingerprint sensor is incorporated into the power button, and a headphone jack is located at the bottom.
The Samsung Exynos 1280 SoC powers the Samsung Galaxy M34 5G. This phone has a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display with a full-HD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The battery should last two days on a single charge, according to Samsung, and the phone supports 25W rapid charging with a suitable adaptor.
The Galaxy M34 5G has a 50-megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilization, which is uncommon at this price. It also has an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera as well as a third macro camera. In the display notch is a 13-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies. The camera app has enhanced night capabilities known as Nightography by Samsung.
Finally, the Samsung Galaxy M34 5G runs One UI 5.1 and is expected to receive up to four generations of OS upgrades as well as up to five years of security patches. Such a lengthy commitment may persuade many potential consumers towards this phone.
The Galaxy M34 5G is not the most visually pleasing smartphone in its class, and others, such as the new Realme Narzo 60 5G, appear to be more inviting. Nonetheless, its specs are reasonably competitive, and the long-term software commitment is a distinct selling feature. We will be evaluating the Galaxy M34 5G in the next weeks, so stay tuned for our full review.
