Update 1 [14 February 2019] – The Samsung Galaxy M30 has also passed through Bluetooth SIG and Wi-Fi Alliance certification processes, bringing its launch closer than ever. The phone features Bluetooth 5.0, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, and Wi-Fi Direct.
Samsung has already launched two Galaxy M series phones—Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20—in India to fend off competition from Chinese brands Honor, Realme, and Xiaomi. Now, the company seems ready to launch one more Galaxy M series smartphone, the Galaxy M30. It will come with better hardware and software features compared to other Galaxy M phones. The Galaxy M30 has just passed through FCC (Federal Communications Commission), revealing some features and hinting towards an impending launch.
The Samsung Galaxy M30 could come with a Super AMOLED screen (owing to the Always On Display menu’s appearance in the screenshot provided by the company in FCC documents) and a fingerprint reader, going by the screenshots of the Settings menu revealed by FCC certification documents. A press render of the phone was leaked on the internet a few days ago, revealing its design.
Samsung Galaxy M30 Features
The Samsung Galaxy M30 will come with a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-V display with Full-HD+ resolution (2220×1080 pixels). The screen has a bezel-less design and accommodates its selfie camera in a V-shaped notch at the top. The phone will have a triple-camera setup at the rear, featuring a 13MP sensor, two 5MP sensors, and an LED flash. The selfie camera will feature 16MP resolution. There’s an oval-shaped fingerprint reader at the rear but the phone also comes with the Face Unlock feature. The phone is expected to come pre-installed with Android 9 Pie-based One UI software.
In terms of processing hardware, the Galaxy M30 is expected to feature the company’s own Exynos 7904 SoC, 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. There could be another variant with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage space. The phone will feature dual-SIM card slot, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Bluetooth, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Similar to the Galaxy M20, the Galaxy M30 will come packed with a 5000mAh battery so that the phone could easily last more than a day on a single charge.
