Samsung is gearing up to introduce the Galaxy M-series of smartphones in India soon. As we found out yesterday, the support page for the Galaxy M20 has already went live on Samsung India website. The brand will be bringing the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and the Galaxy M30 in January 2019. It’s worth noting that the Galaxy M-series is a replacement lineup for the Galaxy J-series from Samsung.

Taking a cue from the not-so-impressive sales chart of the J-series phones that packed mediocre specs at comparatively higher pricing than the better budget phones from Xiaomi, Realme, ASUS, and others. The Galaxy M-series will be refreshing the budget segment of Samsung.
