Earlier this month Samsung made a strong come back to the affordable smartphones segment with the launch of the Galaxy M10 and the Galaxy M20. At the time, we were also aware of a third device from the company called the Galaxy M30. Samsung, however, to this day continues to maintain a stoic silence over the existence of the Galaxy M30 and has neither confirmed nor denied the existence of this product. A few days ago, however, schematics of the Galaxy M30 were leaked, and we had even posted about the same here. Today, we have some additional information around the Galaxy M30 with regards to its launch and potential price tag.
Samsung Galaxy M30: Expected launch date, pricing
As per a recent report by IANS, the Samsung Galaxy M30 is likely to go on sale by the first week of March. Prior to that, Samsung is also likely to officially launch the M30 in the last week of February. We still do not have any confirmed dates for both these events. Samsung is also yet to officially send out invites for the same. According to IANS, they have this piece of information thanks to their ‘industry sources’. These sources have apparently also revealed the pricing of the device which is expected to be INR 14,990. There is no word if the handset will be sold in multiple RAM and storage capacity options. Anyway, let us now turn our attention to the expected specifications of the Galaxy M30.
Samsung Galaxy M30: Specifications, features
From what is currently known, the spec sheet of the Samsung Galaxy M30 will feature minor upgrades over the M20. As of now, it is expected that the M30 will feature a large 6.38-inch AMOLED panel with the same resolution as the TFT panel of the Galaxy M20. The phone also gets a water drop notch at the top. The Samsung Galaxy M30 is likely to be powered by the Exynos 7904 SoC which, incidentally, is the same one that is used on the Galaxy M20. The phone will be sold in a single 4GB RAM + 64GB version in India. The phone gets a triple slot as well that can accommodate two SIM cards and a MicroSD card at the same time.
The camera on the Galaxy M30 is likely to be a triple camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel primary camera, a 5-megapixel wide-angle camera, and another 5-megapixel depth sensor. The handset is also likely to feature a 15-megapixel front-facing camera. The phone also supports face unlock and has a fingerprint scanner at the rear for security.
Connectivity options on the M30 include dual SIM capability with support for 4G VoLTE networks, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac 2.4G + 5G, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C. Like the M20, the Galaxy M30 will also feature a 5,000 mAh battery.
