Following months of speculation, the existence of the Samsung Galaxy M30s as a retail product has been confirmed. It may be exclusive to Amazon India, a site that is currently promoting it as a device with an impressive 6000mAh battery. This new Galaxy M-series variant will go on sale on September 18, 2019.

Update: The Galaxy M30s is now live on Amazon.in. It does indeed have the super-sized battery as promised in its pre-release campaign. This new 6.4-inch FHD-display phone improves over the M30 with the newer Exynos 9611 processor and the 48MP main camera also hinted at in teasers. It is joined in a triple-lens module by an 8MP wide-angle lens.

The M30s is available in 2 RAM/storage SKUs: 4/64GB or 6/128GB. They are priced at INR 15490 (~US$213) and INR 18500 ($262) respectively.

The Samsung Galaxy M30s has appeared on the Indian Amazon site, in the form of a pre-release promotion along the lines of that for the Realme 5 series on Flipkart. It hypes this phone as one with an impressive 6000mAh battery. The M30, on the other hand, has a 5000mAh battery. This, then, may be the new device's special feature that earns it the 's' suffix.

On the other hand, the Galaxy M30s has also appeared on the Android Enterprise database as a phone with 4GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB in fixed storage, whereas the Galaxy M30 also has 3 and 6GB RAM options. This new listing also suggests that the M30 and its new variant share a 6.4-inch display (which, according to Amazon, are also Super AMOLED), although it cannot be said that they will be of the same resolution as yet.

The Amazon teaser for the new M-series phone also shows that it has a triple camera in a novel long rectangular housing, thus rendering a leak indicating only 2 rear cameras invalid. This material hints that it, like many other 2019 mid-rangers, may also have a 48MP camera.

The Samsung Galaxy M30s is to be released on September 18, 2019, for a price that has not yet been disclosed. However, those looking for a deal on a slightly older phone may be advized that Amazon.in is currently offering about INR 1500 (US$21.18) off a new 4GB Galaxy M30, a 3GB M20, an M40 or an M10 in conjunction with their new sibling's launch.
