Samsung India has dropped the price of two of its budget devices, the Galaxy M01 Core and the Galaxy M01s, by INR 500 ($6.81). It’s not a huge discount and it might not persuade you to buy one of these two devices if you didn’t have a reason to do so already, but the two M-branded phones were already fairly affordable so an INR 500 discount is not insignificant in this context.
Both the Galaxy M01 Core and the Galaxy M01s were released in India in July. The Galaxy M01 Core was released for INR 5,499 ($75) whereas the Galaxy M01s had an entry-level price of INR 9,999 ($136). These prices are now lower by INR 500, so the Galaxy M01 Core costs INR 4,999 ($68) while the Galaxy M01s will set you back ($129). It’s unclear whether these new prices are temporary or permanent, but we’re more inclined to believe its the latter seeing how Samsung only recently brought new Galaxy M devices to India, including the Galaxy M31s and the Galaxy M51.
Samsung intends to release 20 million Galaxy M phones in India by the end of 2020 and the recent discounts could be a reflection of the company’s efforts in this direction. Or they might simply follow the natural order of things and adopt lower prices in the wake of newer and better models.
