The Galaxy M01s is Samsung's newest entry-level smartphone for the Indian market. Its release comes days after Realme made the Realme C11 available in the country. The phone is somewhat of an upgrade over the Galaxy M01, which was released in June. The Galaxy M01s is available only in one variant with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, and it costs INR 9,999 (US$133). It can be bought on Samsung's official website and Amazon.

Given its low price, it is no surprise that Samsung made some compromises in the Galaxy M01s' hardware. It runs a MediaTek Helio P22 SoC that has eight Cortex-A53 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. While the phone does feature a 4,000mAh battery, it does not support any form of fast charging and uses a micro USB port. The phone runs Android 9 Pie-based One UI 1.1 out of the box.

The Samsung Galaxy M01s' rear camera array consists of a 13MP primary sensor and a 2MP lens. An 8MP selfie camera is nestled at the V-shaped notch on the device's 6.2-inch HD+ screen. Unlike most Samsung offerings, the Galaxy M01s comes with a TFT panel. There's a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner too.

It'll be interesting to see how the highly-competitive Indian market receives the Galaxy M01s. Many sub-INR 10,000 (US$133) smartphones have had their fares hiked several times, and this could be Samsung's chance to regain some ground.
