Chinese phone manufacturers have changed the mobile industry for good. Samsung was one of the most expensive brands after the iPhone but last year it had faced a financial struggle to achieve the sales numbers due to increasing sales of Chinese brands. Phones like Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme saw the gap in the budget market and grew intensively. The Korean tech giant had to come up with a new fresh strategy to keep everything in their favor. The M series was their attempt to stay in the budget-friendly mobile segment.
In early 2019, Samsung launched the Galaxy M10, M20, and M30 smartphones, with new designs, better hardware specifications, and attractive Samsung display at a very competitive price. These phones did well and now Samsung has come back with another budget mobile phone in the M series – Galaxy M30s, starting at Rs 14,000 in India. The Galaxy M30s is one of the many ‘S’ series phones that Samsung has been quietly planning to launch.
The M30s is the latest model of the popular M30. Similarly, we have the M10s, A30s, and A50s that are updated versions of the M10, A30 and A50 devices. Compared to its predecessor, the M30s packs a bunch of noteworthy upgrades like a massive 6,000mAh battery and a new Exxon’s 9611 chipsets. Are these upgrades enough to make you buy the Galaxy M30s over phones like the Realme 5 Pro and Redmi Note 7 Pro? We review the M30s to find out.
As expected, the design of the Galaxy M30s isn’t much different than its predecessor. It has a plastic unibody panel on the back with a triple camera system set up on the top-left corner. For security, the device has a fingerprint sensor placed just above the center where it is really easy to access. The only difference here is the camera – which is 48MP and the triple camera system gets wider to house the flashlight.
