Galaxy M30s live photos pop up at TENAA, new Exynos SoC rumored
The Galaxy M30s is inching its way towards the market, and as part of its pre-launch process, the device seems to have been approved by the Chinese regulatory agency TENAA. This allows us to take a closer look at the smartphone’s exterior design, as TENAA applications are generally accompanied by live photos, and this one is no exception.
Large camera housing to become a design trend?
Judging by the live photos shared by TENAA, the Galaxy M30s will indeed feature an unusual rear-facing camera setup. Or rather, the camera housing where the three rear-facing sensors and LED flash reside is uncommonly large.
Monster battery could benefit from faster charging
The TENAA application for the Galaxy M30s doesn’t contain any hardware details, unfortunately, but we do know that the device is expected to rock a monster 6,000mAh battery. On top of that, GSMArena cites Slashleaks in saying that the phone could benefit from 18W fast charging over USB.
Likewise, the device would be equipped by a so-called Exynos 9611 SoC but the chipset in question has never been confirmed by Samsung. The Galaxy M30s with model number SM-M307F has been spotted on Geekbench with the Exynos 9611 and 4GB of RAM. The chip is likely just a variation of the Exynos 9610 with slightly different clock speed.
We are unable to confirm at this point if the information above is correct, but, at the least, bumping the phone’s fast charging capabilities up from the usual 15W would be most welcomed for a large 6,000mAh unit which would inevitably require a fair amount of recharge time.
As we wait and see how the Galaxy M30s shapes up, it’s worth reminding that Samsung is expected to unveil the phone in India on September 18. The company should launch the device online through Amazon.
