Samsung, which has been dethroned by Xiaomi in India, and threatened by the popularity of Realme, Vivo and other Chinese brands, has now decided something which never has been done before. Samsung is reported to launch the Galaxy M-series models in India with an as low price as Rs. 9,500.
While the firm has already scheduled a launch event for the more interesting Galaxy S10, nothing has been heard of the Galaxy M phones in terms of their launch date.
Xiaomi's been absolutely relentless with its smartphone offerings in India, so Samsung has its work cut out for it with the Galaxy M lineup. Samsung has announced that the smartphones will be catered towards millennials and will be unveiled on January 28 in what will be the global launch of the series.
Samsung M-series has been declared as India-first smartphone. The new M-series might help bolster the company's offerings in the budget segment.
It seems that Samsung now wants to aggressively target the sub-Rs 10,000 category.
The range, which will include phones priced up to Rs 20,000, will be sold online only. Samsung says that the phones will be available both on Amazon.in, as well as its own online storefront. This can feature a triple camera set-up.
5,000 mAh battery and ultra-wide camera the biggest draws?Inside, it is expected come with Exynos 7885 CPU with 3GB RAM, 32GB/64GB storage, 13MP+5 MP dual camera on the back, an 8MP snapper on the front and a massive 5000mAh battery, which will be more than enough to keep the phone running for more than one-and-half day under mixed usage.
A lot has been said and written about Samsung's soon-to-launch Galaxy M series.
