After the successful launch of the Galaxy M10 and M20 in India, Samsung is expanding its M series portfolio by launching the Galaxy M30 in the country. As the model number suggests, the M30 sits above the Galaxy M20 in Samsung’s new online-exclusive budget lineup. It boasts slightly better specs than the M20 and accordingly comes at a higher price as well.
The Galaxy M30 comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, Exynos 7904 SoC, a fingerprint reader on the back, 5,000mAh battery with support for fast charging, and Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.5 UI on top. On the back, it sports a triple-camera setup with a 13-megapixel primary camera, 5-megapixel depth sensor, and a 5-megapixel wide-angle lens. There is also a 16-megapixel selfie camera with Live Focus support. The device will be available in 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB storage variants. As evident from the specs, the Galaxy M30 is essentially an M20 with a Super AMOLED display, more storage, and a triple-camera setup.
The Galaxy M30 will go on sale in India on Amazon.in and Samsung eStore at 12 PM IST on March 7. It will be available in Gradation Black and Gradation Blue color options. The base 4GB/64GB variant is priced at INR 14,990 (~$210), while the higher-end variant costs INR 17,990 (~$250). Those are extremely aggressive price points for what Samsung is offering and are bound to attract a lot of buyers in the world’s second largest smartphone market.
