Samsung has caused a bit of a splash in the mid-range smartphone segment with the recent launch of the Galaxy M10 and M20 range of smartphones in India. Set for a wider rollout, the M10 and M20 will also be joined by the Galaxy M30, details of which have just leaked out.
The Galaxy M10 and M20 have been a sales hit on their global debut in the highly competitive mid-range smartphone market in India. Launched last week, the new mid-range smartphones from Samsung feature an appealing combination of features and performance for a relatively low asking price. While we know everything there is to know about the M10 and M20, we haven’t heard much about the top-of-the-line Galaxy M30 until now.
The folks over at PriceKart have uncovered a schematic overview of the Galaxy M30 and it reveals that it will step it up over the Galaxy M20 by including a third rear camera. The main lens is rated at 13MP with an f1/1.9 aperture, the second will incorporate a 5MP shooter with a wide-angle lens and an f/2.2 aperture while the third will be a 5MP depth-sensing camera with f/2.2 aperture. The front-facing camera is expected to be a 16MP monster.
In virtually all other respects with will be quite similar to the M20, including the utilization of an Exynos 7094 octa-core processor, extra-large 5,000mAh battery, USB-C port, and support for 4G VoLTE. The display will fractionally larger at 6.38-inches (versus 6.3-inches), but will include the same FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels for a pixel density around 400ppi. It may, however, pick up as much as 6GB RAM where the M20 maxes out a 4GB.
Expect to see it officially surface in the coming month, possibly at MWC.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
