Samsung Galaxy M30s is expected to make its India debut next month with a massive 6,000mAh battery and 48MP triple rear camera setup.
Pitched as the only device in the smartphone industry with such a huge battery at a competitive price point, Galaxy M30s will be available on Amazon like other Galaxy M series devices. The smartphone is said to come with a 48MP camera, and the latest report by IANS states that it will be priced between Rs 15,000 and 20,000.
The Samsung Galaxy M series is a line of online-exclusive mid-tier smartphones manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The letter M stands for Millennial. Being positioned at the mid-range and low-end segments, all models in the series have the essential features of a smartphone and differ in size and design.
The first models in the series, the Samsung Galaxy M10 and M20 were released in February 2019; they were followed by the Samsung Galaxy M30 in March 2019 and the Samsung Galaxy M40 in June 2019.

Battery and Miscellaneous: The Galaxy M30s is powered by the same 6000mAh battery unit that powers the Galaxy M30. It supports 15W wired fast charging through the phone’s bundled wall charging unit and USB Type-C port. Samsung calls its version of rapid charging Adaptive Fast Charging.
