Samsung Galaxy M Series India Launch Set for January 28 Company Confirms

While the tenth anniversary obviously is the most interesting of such hardware, the Korean Chaebol like we have learned from leaks and rumors is also working on replacing its Galaxy J series with the expected launch of three devices under ' Galaxy M' series.

Samsung's mobile phone sales in India touched 373.5 billion rupees ($5.3 billion) in the 12 months to end-March 2018, according to regulatory filings sourced by paper.vc, a business intelligence platform. In case you were having doubts, Samsung has cleared all that up with a microsite dedicated to Galaxy M series.

Eager to take the fight to Chinese smartphone manufacturers, Samsung is planning to launch a new range of budget Galaxy M series phones in 2019, with the handsets expected to arrive in India first, as reported by Reuters.

"The M series has been built around and incepted around Indian millennial consumers", Warsi said.

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

The company said it'll launch these devices in India first, and then roll them out globally. It's being speculated that the two smartphones will be pitched as mid-range smartphones.

However, reports from other research organisations like IDC and Counterpoint have positioned Xiaomi to be ahead of Samsung (in terms of units shipped) for many quarters now. The word on the street is that Samsung might launch the Galaxy M30 as well on January 28. The Galaxy M30 is also said to come with a 5,000mAh battery and may also be Samsung's cheapest phone with a triple camera system.

The expected prices are INR 10,000 for the M10 and INR 15,000 for the M20 ($140 and $210, respectively). Meant to appeal to a millennial audience, the new series of phones have been designed in India.

Xiaomi has managed to maintain a steady lead over Samsung for over a year now, with a 27.3% market share compared to its rival's 22.6% in the July-September 2018 period, buoyed by a almost 50% share in the online segment and rapid expansion in its bricks-andmortar channel as well, according to IDC.
