South Korean manufacturer Samsung is all set to launch the successor to the proclaimed M30 today in India. It will be the fourth smartphone in Samsung’s M series, after M10, M20, M30 were launched a few months apart. The series is considered to be a direct competitor of Xiaomi, Vivo, and Oppo smartphones in the budget catalog.
Galaxy M30 will have a 6.3 inches thin-film-transistor (TFT) LCD full-HD+ display with a hole-punch style camera cutout, dubbed Infinity-O display. It will run on Android 9 Pie on Samsung’s customized One UI. It will have an in-built 128GB storage, expandable via a microSD card and 6GB RAM for multi-tasking. There will be a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a face unlock option for added security.
The phone will cost ₹19,900 with the most spec-heavy variant. The 16MP front camera will be placed on the left side of the display, giving an almost full-display immersive feel. Unlike the M30 which has a mammoth 5000 mAh battery, M40 will be downsizing the battery capacity to a 3400mAh cell, which is rather disappointing.
Asim Warsi, Samsung India’s Senior VP of Smartphone Business has confirmed that the phone will be equipped with a triple camera setup on the back. Going by the rumors, it will be a set of a 32MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP depth mapping lens. The first sale in India will start on 18th June, at 12 P.M.
Stay tuned for more updates on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M40.
