The Galaxy M30 is one of Samsung's newest mid-range devices. However, it appears that the OEM is already planning to refresh this phone with a different, faster CPU. On the other hand, this possibility has only been indicated through new Geekbench scores thus far.
Deirdre O Donnell,

Samsung clearly pursues a strategy of covering as many aspects of the smartphone market as possible with as many devices as possible. To that end, it has set the Galaxy M series up this year, and festooned it with a number of new models that target a spectrum of low-to-mid-tier price points. The Galaxy M30 sits in the approximate middle of this slider, between the M20 and M40. However, it seems that even this is not enough for their maker.

A new device, depicted as somewhat similar to this phone, has recently appeared on the Geekbench database. Its model number is SM-M307F, whereas that of the M30 is SM-M305F. It is powered with the 10nm Exynos 9610, while the M30 is associated with the older, 14nm Exynos 7904. Therefore, it appears that Samsung may be preparing a new variant of the pre-existing phone.

The SM-M307F has considerably fewer Geekbench entries compared to the SM-M305F; however, these early data-points suggest that the former is faster and better at multitasking already. Those who have already bought the M30 may be disgruntled at these findings. Then again, it is possible that this putative "Galaxy M30s" is destined for different regions - perhaps those where other Exynos 9610-powered devices are successful, or may be in the near future.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
