Samsung expands its budget range later this month with the Galaxy M10, M20, and M30. These cheap Android smartphones get big batteries and low prices.
Samsung Galaxy M series release confirmed
Rumors about the Samsung Galaxy M series have been buzzing around for a while, but an Indian CEO has confirmed the upcoming release. In conversation with Reuters, Samsung confirms that the first three Samsung Galaxy M smartphones will be available in India from the end of January. They will soon be revealed, but many details have already been leaked.
The Samsung Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and Galaxy M30, as the devices are called according to the top man, will be sold in India exclusively through Amazon and the manufacturer’s web shop. Major rivals Xiaomi and Oppo have the same sales strategy in India.
Samsung hopes to compete better with these companies with the new three. Cheap budget smartphones are gaining more and more market share in India, Reuters writes, and Samsung has not yet received a good response to this.
The Galaxy M series should be that answer: the cheapest Galaxy M10 probably has a suggested retail price of 120 euros, rising to 250 euros for the M30. The cheapest Samsung smartphone of the moment, the Galaxy J4 Plus, had a suggested retail price of 189 euros at its release.
Large battery, fast charging, a small notch
Samsung is targeting a younger target group with the three smartphones, according to the CEO. They are equipped with large batteries, support for fast charging, and a selfie camera hidden in a small notch at the top of the screen. Especially the Galaxy M20 has a large battery: published specifications suggest a capacity of 5000 mAh. That should be enough for two days without charging.
Although the smartphones are aimed at emerging markets, they will probably also appear in the United States later this spring. At the end of last year, sources claimed that Samsung is planning to sell the three devices in Germany, France, and the United Kingdom. We will probably hear more about that if Samsung actually announces the threesome.
