Riding on the success of its online-exclusive Galaxy M series, Samsung India is all set to launch Galaxy M30s with 48MP triple rear camera setup in India mid-September. Galaxy M30s will be powered by the new Exynos processor — not seen on the four Galaxy M series smartphones launched so far, industry sources told IANS on Saturday.
Keeping up with the trend, Galaxy M30s will house a powerful triple rear camera system with 48MP primary sensor, sources added, taking big on Xiaomi K20 Pro, Mi A3 and Realme 5 Pro — all latest rival devices with 48MP rear camera system. Another key highlight of the new Galaxy M30s will be an industry-first battery.
“Samsung has gone for industry-leading battery capacity for the new smartphone. Galaxy M30s will also support fast charging,” sources told IANS.
Galaxy M series, Samsung’s exclusive range of online smartphones, was launched earlier this year and has seen a great adoption in the mid-range price segment.
In the second quarter (Q2) this year, Samsung closed the gap with the smartphone market leader Xiaomi on the back of its India-first strategy and a strong portfolio refresh, with Galaxy A and M series.
“The India smartphone market is increasingly driven by affordable smartphones (Rs 7,000-Rs 25,000). Smartphone brands are focused on driving consumer upgrades from entry-level buyers to affordable and premium segment (over Rs 25,000) with interesting new propositions,” said Prabhu Ram, Head-Industry Intelligence Group (IIG), CyberMedia Research (CMR).
