Galaxy M30 to launch on February 27 with A8s-like triple-rear camera

Samsung has announced that the Galaxy M30 launch will take place on February 27. The Galaxy M30 will be the third device in Samsung’s aggressively-priced Galaxy M lineup and will come with a triple camera setup at the back. The rear camera will have a ring around the middle camera like we saw on the Galaxy A8s, but at the front, the M30 will have an Infinity-U display instead of an Infinity-O panel.

Recent reports have suggested that the M30 will also have an AMOLED display (the Galaxy M10, M20, and even the Galaxy A8s all have an LCD panel). The phone’s pricing is expected to be around ₹15,000, and given the excellent pricing of the M10 and M20, the M30 should be a good deal as well. Many of the specs should match those of the M20, such as an Exynos 7904 SoC, a 5,000 mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, and Android 8.1 Oreo.

An Android Pie update is sure to come out later in the year, and Samsung will probably be quick to confirm that officially. The rear cameras should have a 5-megapixel depth sensor and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide sensor in addition to the 13MP primary camera. The front could have a 16MP camera for selfies.

The Galaxy M30 will be revealed on February 27 at 6 PM India time, a week after the Galaxy S10. Like the M10 and M20, it’s likely to be an Amazon-exclusive. You can be sure you will see all the information and details about the handset here on SamMobile in the coming days, along with a full review later on. For now, do check out our Galaxy M20 review to see what you can expect the Galaxy M30 to be like.

The M20 and M10 don’t even have an ambient light sensor, which is quite standard now on phones from other brands in this price segment. To reduce costs, Samsung has included what it calls a virtual light sensor in which the selfie camera takes a picture and adjusts brightness based on what the camera captures. So the auto-brightness doesn’t really work very well. The best thing to do is to avoid all Samsung budget phones. They simply do not offer value for money.

The fact that these M series come with oreo is just as stupid as it was for the A5 2017 which came with marshmallow. They have the newer icons but in the end they will receive less major android updates because they could and should have been launched with Pie. That’s a bit unfortunate

Seems like Samsung aren’t serious about the Chinese competitors. Just look at the M20, when it comes to Indonesia the price increase a lot despite having weaker specs as well as other countries that are expected to be priced the same. The M20 marketing here is only focused on the 5000 MAh battery (#AntiLowbatGuys), nothing else. It’s like the only advantage of this phone while their Chinese competitors offers more advantages with unsurprisingly cheaper price. Samsung are just fortunate that one of their competitor hasn’t release the phone globaly yet and the M20 hype will gone after the competitor release… Read more »

Will be interested to see if resellers offer this phone for sale in North America – if the specs and pricing hold up, this would make a great travel phone.
