Samsung's new Galaxy M budget lineup has already been launched, and we expect to see the surface of the Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20 and Galaxy M30 within a few weeks. The new models will be released first in India later this month before being released globally, according to Reuters. Samsung saw its share of the Indian market deteriorate thanks to strong sales from Chinese maker Xiaomi. Samsung hopes to fight back with the Galaxy M line, which will replace the Galaxy J series (which is the Galaxy J8 2018, at the top of this article).
The new phones will be available in India only through Samsung's own website and via Amazon India. The handsets will be priced at 10,000 to 20,000 rupees ($ 142 to $ 284) and will have heavy batteries and fast charging. There are rumors that the entry-level Galaxy M10 is equipped with a 5.6-inch LCD screen, and is expected to be equipped with the Exynos 7870 chipset. The device will include 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a battery of 3000mAh. It is said that a 13 megapixel camera adorns the back of the phone with a 5MP tweezer in the front.
The Galaxy M20 should feature a 6.1-inch LCD display. The Exynos 7885 SoC is rumored to be under the hood along with 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of native storage. A dual camera setup will supposedly adorn the back of the device (12MP + 5MP) with an 8MP front selfie stabilizer. Keeping the lights on will be a 5000mAh battery.
India remains the second largest smartphone market in the world, with more than 1 billion wireless subscribers. Still, 350 million people in the country have not yet acquired a smartphone. Xiaomi has been able to capitalize on the developing economy of the country with its value pricing model. Data from Counterpart research firm indicate that Samsung, the world's largest smartphone maker, had a smaller market share in India than Xiaomi in two of the first three quarters of last year. Fourth quarter data have not yet been released.
