amsung is planning a half-yearly refresh of its A-series and M-series lineup, attaching an “s” suffix to the phones which see improvements in certain areas. Earlier this month, Samsung had announced the Samsung Galaxy A10s, the Samsung Galaxy A30s, and the Samsung Galaxy A50s. Now, a leaked marketing teaser suggests that Samsung is planning a new phone with a massive 6,000 mAh battery, while separate reports suggest that this could be the Samsung Galaxy M30s.
SamMobile then revealed the specifications of this device. According to them, the Samsung Galaxy M30s SM-M307F will feature a 6.4″ FHD+ 2400 x 1080 display. The phone is also speculated to feature an Exynos 9610 SoC and will come in 4GB + 64GB and 6GB + 128GB RAM and storage variants. The camera will also see an upgrade, as the phone will come with a triple rear camera setup comprising of a 48MP, f/2.0 sensor, an 8MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor, and a 5MP, f/2.2 depth sensor. Selfies on this phone will be handled by the 16MP, f/2.0 front camera.
Of course, there will also be a 6,000 mAh battery. This is unlikely to be complemented with a super-fast charge solution, but the sheer capacity should allow for very comfortable usage even under heavy use scenarios. We do hope Samsung at least considers making the phone capable of fast charging, even if they do not bundle in a fast charger and if it has to be purchased separately. We also predict that Samsung would likely be marketing reverse wired charging capabilities for this device.
The Samsung Galaxy M30s is expected to launch soon. It remains to be seen how Samsung prices this device. Samsung’s budget and mid-range options have seen widespread adoption riding on the company’s offline distribution and sales channels, so a mid-year refresh should give the company some more talking points right before the Diwali shopping season.
