Samsung India brings the Galaxy M30 to offline retail channels nation-wide

Samsung India is making the Galaxy M30 available for purchase offline. It’s been over a year since the Galaxy M30 was launched in India exclusively through Samsung’s online channels, but now the company is pushing the variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage into the offline retail space where it’s apparently carrying a price tag of INR 9,999 ($134).

The Galaxy M series debuted exclusively through online retail channels as a way to reduce launch prices and pass those savings on to the customer. But Samsung reworked its strategy a few months ago, and now the Galaxy M30 is available offline.

It has become a little bit more expensive as a result

The Galaxy M30 with the same 3GB/32GB memory configuration costs INR 9,649 ($130) if you choose to purchase it directly from Samsung’s website. No other memory variants seem to have been made available offline for the time being.

The main benefit of buying a smartphone from a brick & mortar store is that you have an opportunity to test the device first-hand before you commit to a purchase. For some prospective buyers, this could very well worth paying the extra INR 350 ($4).

As to what you can expect from the Galaxy M30, you can get a lot more information from our original hands-on report, but what’s important to keep in mind is that the device has already been succeeded by a spin-off (Galaxy M30s) and a direct sequel (Galaxy M31). You might want to look into those options as well, especially since they are also available through offline channels.
