“The upcoming Galaxy M30 is expected to be priced at Rs 15,000 for the base variant”
After launching the Galaxy M10 and M20 budget smartphones in India, Samsung is now prepping to unveil the Galaxy M30. And while there were multiple rumours doing the rounds, we didn’t really know the official launch date for this phone. Until now that is. Samsung has just confirmed on Twitter that it would be launching the third smartphone in the M series on February 27th in the country. However, it remains to be seen if the South Korean giant will be hosting a launch event for the same or not, as the teaser only mentions 6pm time.
Going by the tweet, the phone will be available to buy on Amazon India, at least in the beginning. A recent report from IANS had revealed that the Galaxy M30 will be available for purchase in the first week of March. Since the phones would be announced on the 27th of this month, the first week of March likely seems to be the timeframe when the device would be available to buy. The status on the tweet states “3X power”, which is likely referring to the fact that the upcoming M30 will ship with a triple-camera setup.

While the tweet doesn’t reveal any other details, rumours suggest that the phone is said to be powered by the same Exynos 7904 processor found on the M20. And unlike the LCD displays on the Galaxy M10 and M20, the Samsung Galaxy M30 will feature a 6.38-inch Super AMOLED Infinity V display with a tiny notch at the top. The device is reported to come in several variants starting with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and going all the way up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. As per leaks, the handset would be equipped with a 5,000mAh battery, similar to the Galaxy M20.
The same IANS report also indicates that the Samsung Galaxy M30’s price in India will start at Rs 15,000 for the base variant. Meanwhile, both the Galaxy M10 (review) and Galaxy M20 (review) seem to be doing very well in the market as they’ve been sold out during all flash sales. If you want to get your hands on them, their next flash is scheduled to take place on February 19th.
