Samsung is seemingly in no mood to settle down now. Fresh from the launch of the highly competitive Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, Samsung is already gearing to launch the third device in the Galaxy M lineup, aka the Galaxy M30, in India on February 27. Not to mention, it has already launched its flagship Galaxy S10 trio of phones in India at aggressive prices, and will start shipping from March 8, which is also the same day that it starts selling them in global markets. But that’s not all – as Samsung is also planning to launch a slew of Galaxy A phones in India in the days to come.
Although it isn’t sharing the names and the exact launch window, Samsung has started teasing what appear to be the long rumoured Galaxy A10, Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 through a dedicated notify-me landing page – referring them to as being part of its new A-series. All the three Galaxy A phones have been revealed through numerous teaser posters highlighting their key features – the biggest being their ultra-wide and slow-motion video recording capabilities.
While the most basic of the lot – ideally the Galaxy A10 – has an Infinity-V notch display like the Galaxy M10 and Galaxy M20, the other two – ideally the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 – have an Infinity-U notch display like the upcoming Galaxy M30. The Galaxy A10 does not have a fingerprint scanner and comes with a single rear camera. Interestingly, the Galaxy A50 also does not have a conventional fingerprint scanner – this is the model which will supposedly feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Galaxy A50 also comes with three rear cameras.
The Galaxy A30 meanwhile has a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dual rear cameras.
The Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A50 should also get USB Type-C and fast charging out-of-the-box, sort of like the Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30.
Now Samsung is yet to confirm the naming scheme of its new Galaxy A phones, but now that it has started teasing the lineup, hopefully it will drop more hints in the days to come. We already know what these phones will look like, so that’s a good start.
Speaking of which, Samsung will launch the Galaxy M30 in India on February 27. The Galaxy M30 will look a lot like the Galaxy M20 from the front as well as from the back. But there will be one major difference between the two phones. While the Galaxy M20 has a dual camera setup on the rear, the Galaxy M30 will come with three rear cameras. An IANS report recently suggested that the price of the Galaxy M30 could start at around Rs 15,000. If true, that would make it the most affordable phone to pack a triple camera setup.
