Samsung plans India-only phones to challenge Chinese rivals

Samsung plans India-only phones to challenge Chinese rivals

The move should see Samsung better poised to compete with major Chinese hardware brands in India, including Xiaomi, Vivo, and Oppo.

Over in India, Samsung has published a new microsite teasing the new Galaxy M. The device, which has yet to be fully revealed, comes with Samsung's Infinity-V display that offers thin bezels all around a teardrop notch around its front-facing camera.

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.

Samsung also revealed to Reuters that India will be the first country where the M-series will debut.


In December, the government had introduced new regulations - effective February 1 - that would bar online marketplaces with foreign investments from selling products of the companies where they hold stakes, and ban exclusive marketing arrangements.

The South Korean tech giant is likely to launch up to four smartphones in the Galaxy M series, M10, M20, M30 and M40.

Samsung M-series has been declared as India-first smartphone.

The "M" series will also be available on Samsung's online store.


"The new series is designed around India's millennial consumers".

Samsung M30 can be in the range of Rs 20,000, taking on Poco F1 from Xiaomi. Furthermore, these M series smartphones are expected to feature a bigger battery that supports Faster charging as well.

Samsung also stated that all the Galaxy M series smartphones will sport a powerful display, powerful camera, powerful battery and a powerful processor. The latter is expected to house a 5,000mAh battery.
