South Korean electronics manufacturer Samsung on Wednesday launched the Galaxy M30s in India. Powered by a 6,000 mAh battery, this smartphone seems to be a significant upgrade over the first-generation model, the Galaxy M30, which was launched earlier this year. Besides a bigger battery, the phone has a triple-camera set-up with a 48-megapixel primary sensor on the back, super AMOLED screen and a capacitive fingerprint sensor.
The Galaxy M30s sports a 6.4-inch super AMOLED screen of fullHD+ resolution, stretched in a tall 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The screen has a tiny dewdrop-shaped (infinity U) notch on the top accommodating the phone’s front camera. Like other M-series smartphones, the Galaxy M30s is expected to come with Widevine L1 certification, which is required for streaming high-definition video content available on various over-the-top (OTT) platforms, such as Amazon Prime Videos and Netflix.
While the phone’s overall design and display size remain identical to the older-generation model, the Galaxy M30s gets a new processor, operating system and camera modules. The galaxy M30s is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9611 system-on-chip, which is an octa-core processor built on 10nm process.
The phone boots Android Pie-operating system-based One user interface. Imaging is covered by a triple-camera module on the back, featuring a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide sensor and a 5 MP depth sensor. On the front, the phone has a 16MP selfie camera. Powering the phone is a 6,000 mAh battery, making it the segment-first product with such a battery capacity. The phone supports 15W fast charging through supplied charger.
The Amazon-exclusive smartphone will be available in 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage and 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, priced at Rs 13,999 and Rs 16,999, respectively. The phone goes on sale from September 29 at the e-commerce platform. It will be available in dual tone colours - opal black, sapphire blue and pearl white.
