A new mid-range smartphone from Samsung has been spotted on benchmarking site Geekbench. The Samsung Galaxy M30 is part of a brand new series from the company. So far, we have heard rumours about three variants of the series, the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 and the Galaxy M30. Now, the Galaxy M30 has appeared on Geekbench, giving us a look at what we can expect from the smartphone.
The Galaxy M30 appears to be a slightly more powerful compared to the upcoming Galaxy M20, at least that’s what the leaks suggest. As per the Geekbench listing, the Galaxy M30 will feature a Samsung-made Exynos 7885 chipset and 4GB of RAM; the octa-core processor appears on the listing with clock speed of 1.59GHz. The phone carries the model number SM-M305F, which coincides with previous leaks.
Apart from those two vital details about the hardware, the listing also reveals that the phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo. This isn’t good news for users as most phones in 2019 will come with Android 9.0 Pie software. However, we can expect the Android 9 Pie-based One UI to be released for the smartphone soon enough in case doesn’t launch with the latest version of the OS.
That’s all the details that are available right now on Geekbench. Previous rumours about the phone have suggested that the M30 will come with up to 128GB of storage. A 64GB variant would also be available. The M series of phones are also said to feature LCD displays instead of AMOLEDs. Earlier this month, we reported that Samsung has started the mass production of the Galaxy M10 and M20 in India. However, we haven’t really heard a lot about the Galaxy M30. Samsung will most likely start 2019 with the launch of these devices.
