South Korean smartphone giant Samsung re-entered the budget smartphone market with a bang, thanks to devices like the Galaxy M30 (Review) and the Galaxy M40. Within a time frame of just four months, the world’s biggest smartphone brand managed to sell more than 2 million Galaxy M series phones and is targeting to earn more than USD 1 billion in online sales in India.

Now, the company seems to be ready to launch improved versions of its M series Android smartphones. We have now stumbled upon a new smartphone listing in Geekbench’s database, revealing a phone that could possibly be the Samsung Galaxy M30s. Thanks to this listing, we get a hint of which processing chipset and how much RAM could be used inside this upcoming mid-range smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy M30s Could Use Exynos 9610 Chipset

Earlier, SamMobile had reported that Samsung has started working on a newer version of the Galaxy M30 and that the phone’s model number would be SM-M307F. Now, the Geekbench listing of a Samsung phone with model number SM-M307F reveals that the phone runs Android 9 Pie, features the Exynos 9610 octa-core processor, and 4GB of RAM. The phone will most probably be released as the Galaxy M30s, and it appears to have a processor that’s faster than the Exynos 7904 that’s used in the Galaxy M30.

The Exynos 9610 chipset’s base CPU clock speed appears to be 1.74GHz. The Exynos 9610 is a 10nm chipset with four Cortex-A73 CPU cores, four Cortex-A53 CPU cores, Mali-G72 MP3 GPU, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi b/g/n/ac, LP-DDR4X RAM support, and support for 4K video recording.

The SM-M307F smartphone has scored 1,680 points in Geekbench 4’s single-core CPU test and 5,211 points in the benchmark’s multi-core CPU test. It is being reported that the phone will have better front and rear-facing cameras and will be released in two storage variants: 64GB and 128GB. Not much else is know about the phone right now, but if it is a successor to the Galaxy M30, it should have at least two cameras on the rear, a triple-card slot, a 5000mAh battery, and a USB Type-C port. Moreover, since it appears to be running Android 9 Pie, it will most probably be released with Samsung’s One UI 1.1 software.
