Samsung Galaxy M30s with 6000mAh battery, 48MP triple cameras launches in India along with the Galaxy M10s

Samsung infused fresh energy in its lineup of affordable smartphones earlier this year with the introduction of the Galaxy M series. Intended to compete with brands like Xiaomi and Realme, which price their smartphones really competitively, the Galaxy M series devices launched earlier in the year come with similar specs as some of the devices in the mid-range Galaxy A series but at more affordable pricing. Samsung has now announced an upgrade to the Galaxy M30 – called the Galaxy M30s, which comes with a major upgrade in the cameras, performance, and the battery on the smartphone without any increase in the price.


The feature which sets the Galaxy M30s apart from the rest of the devices is its 6,000mAh battery, a 20% upgrade over the Galaxy M30. Samsung says this battery should easily last you 29 hours of continuous video and 130+ hours of audio playback. Ther charger in the box is now rated at 15W. The extra battery capacity increases the weight of the smartphone by only 14 grams.

Under the hood, there’s an improvement in terms of the processor as well. The Galaxy M30s is powered by an Exynos 9611, a chipset built with a 10nm process and housing improved CPU as well as GPU. The RAM options for the Galaxy M30s remain the same with 4GB and 6GB up for grabs. The storage options, too, remain unchanged with 64GB and 128GB options, with microSD card support for up to 512GB cards.

There’s a major upgrade in terms of the camera and the Galaxy M30s gets a 48MP primary sensor. Samsung has not specified whether this 48MP sensor is from Sony or Samsung. The remaining two sensors i.e. the 5MP ultra-wide angle sensor with 123º FOV and the 5MP depth sensor remain the same. The 16MP camera on the front remains unchanged too.

The Samsung Galaxy M30s uses the same 6.4-inch Infinity-U Super AMOLED display and unlike the recently launched Galaxy A50s, this one does not feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.
