Samsung introduces Galaxy M10s and M30s in India

Samsung introduces Galaxy M10s and M30s in India

In a move to expand its portfolio in the mid-range category in India, Samsung has launched a successor to the Galaxy M30 - the Galaxy M30s.

Samsung Galaxy M10s is a budget smartphone with a Super AMOLED display and Samsung claims that it is the first smartphone under Rs. 10,000 to feature an AMOLED panel.

Samsung's Galaxy M30s has been priced starting at Rs. 13,999 for the 4GB+64GB base variant but you will have to shell out Rs. 16,999 for the 6GB+128GB variant.

The phone is also said to have a triple-camera rear camera setup which includes a 48 MP camera along with 5 MP secondary sensor with an f/2.2 lens, and an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera. So, can it create some ripples in this highly-competitive segment?

Well, it seems like Samsung aims to be on its toes and provide the latest and greatest to its users with the refreshed Galaxy M30s. The phone can be purchased in Stone Blue and Piano Black colour options. This device is part of the "Galaxy M" series from Samsung, available mostly outside of the United States. It has a 4,000 mAh battery and comes with support for 15W fast charging. Overall, the smartphone does not feel too much heavy in spite of sporting a big 6,000mAh battery, though the build quality could have been better. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage will set you back by Rs 16,999. Now, it is time to look at the differences between the new Galaxy M10s and the Galaxy M10. Although it is too early to comment on the performance of the device, looking at the sheer specifications, it will certainly face competition with the likes of Realme XT, Xiaomi Mi A3, Vivo Z1x and more. The phone runs Android 9 Pie with Samsungs OneUI 1.5. The UI is smoother as compared to previous generations and it comes with a host of customizable options, which are quite fun to play with.

Coming to one of its major highlights, the Samsung Galaxy M30s is equipped with a triple-camera setup at the rear panel. Both the phones have Infinity U, a dewdrop-like notch, on the front and edge-to-edge screen. Other features include dual SIM support, a 3.5 mm headphone jack and FM radio.

The M30s comes with the largest battery capacity in Samsungs smartphone lineup packing a monstrous 6,000 mAh cell, up from the 5,000 mAh one on the M30.
