Samsung has confirmed that it will officially launch the Galaxy M30s in India on September 18, and it has also revealed what the phone will look like, alongside a few key specs. The Galaxy M30s will look a lot like the Galaxy M30 from the front as well as from the back which isn’t surprising since it seems to be some sort of upgraded variant of that phone – basis of the naming. The biggest highlight of the Galaxy M30s is said to be its ginormous 6,000mAh battery – the Galaxy M30 had a 5,000mAh pack.
Basis of renders shared by Samsung on Amazon India, the Galaxy M30s seems all set to retain the company’s gradation design scheme. The phone will come an Infinity U-shaped notch atop a Super AMOLED display panel. On the back there will be three cameras and a physical fingerprint reader for biometric authentication. By the looks of it, the Galaxy M30s looks all set to become the first affordable M-series phone to come with a 48MP main camera.
Rumored specs of the Galaxy M30s include a 6.4-inch 1080p+ Super AMOLED display and an Exynos 9610/9611 processor paired with up to 4GB RAM and up to 128GB storage. Software should be Android 9 Pie-based OneUI. Samsung is likely to launch the Galaxy M30s in India at a price in between Rs 15,000 and Rs 20,000 – in line with the punch-hole toting Galaxy M40.
A quick refresh of the Galaxy M30 specs – the Galaxy M30 which was launched in India at a starting price of Rs 14,990 comes with a 6.4-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with a 1080p+ resolution, an Exynos 7904 processor with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB storage, a 5,000mAh battery with 15W USB Type-C fast charging support, and Android 8.1 Oreo-based Samsung Experience 9.5 UI (now upgradable to Android Pie). On to the cameras, the Galaxy M30 has three rear cameras -- a 13MP primary sensor with f/1.9 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor and another 5MP ultra-wide sensor with 123-degree field of view. On the front, the Galaxy M30 comes with a 16MP camera.
