Giving the New Year a head-start to capture the market, Samsung India is geared up to launch a new Galaxy ‘M’ series with three smartphones in January 2019. Reliable industry sources told IANS on Wednesday that the India launch will mark the global debut of Galaxy ‘M’ series. According to the dealers, the “world’s first” new smartphone series is being launched with industry-first features.
Earlier, three devices under ‘M’ series — M10, M20 and M30 — were spotted on cross-platform processor benchmark Geekbench. The Galaxy M30 may be powered by an Exynos 7885 chip with 4GB RAM, read the listing.
The Galaxy ‘M’ series comes on the heel of Galaxy A7 and A9 — Samsung’s first triple and quad-rear camera devices. In 2018, Samsung’s flagship devices — Galaxy S9, S9+ and Galaxy Note 9 — became bestsellers, while Galaxy ‘J’ series continues to rule the mid-price segment, according to industry experts.
Samsung India is also set to launch other interesting products across domains early in 2019 to maintain its leading position in the country. With the new series, Samsung is all set to take on Xiaomi which is currently the leading smartphone brand in India with a market share of around 28%. Like Samsung, Xiaomi might also be launching a new smartphone in January 2019 and it could be the one with a 48MP camera and Snapdragon 675 SoC.
