The Samsung SM-M305F smartphone has been spotted on Geekbench. The listing for the device, which is also known as the Samsung Galaxy M30, states the operating system as Android 8.1. The amount of on-board memory is given as 4 GB. The M30 will be joining the M10 and M20 as part of Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy M series.

The folks at MySmartPrice have noticed a Geekbench listing for the Samsung Galaxy M30 smartphone (model SM-M305F). Those hoping for an Android 9 Pie operating system will be disappointed, as it looks like Android 8.1 is going to be utilized. The Geekbench post also states 3724 MB memory, so the M30 will basically come with 4 GB RAM. With the M20 expected to come with 3 GB RAM, clearly the M30 is going to be the "high-end" choice in the series so far.

Although the processor has not yet been named, there are some clues about what it could be. The listing describes an octa-core processor with a base frequency of 1.59 GHz. It’s not the sort of statistic that will get many smartphone users excited, and it has been speculated it will be Samsung’s Exynos 7885 that drives the device. This is the same SoC that will likely be found in the M20. Storage space is expected to be 64 GB or 128 GB.

There have also been rumors that the new M series could feature an M50 model, which could possibly offer some more attractive specifications. MySmartPrice has noted that this device could sport an AMOLED screen. It has also been mentioned that the Galaxy M50 will have Android 9, 4 GB RAM, a 3500 mAh battery, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 – but these unconfirmed details need to be taken with a pinch of salt for the time being.
