After numerous leaks and teasers, Samsung has finally announced the Galaxy M30s in India today. In line with the company’s recent ‘s’ models, the Galaxy M30s is an upgraded version of the existing M30. However, unlike its A series counterparts, the M30s offers more substantial upgrades over the original model. In fact, the changes are big enough to warrant a bump in the model number, but Samsung thought otherwise.Galaxy M30s specs include multiple improvements over Galaxy M30Compared to the Galaxy M30, the M30s comes with updated rear cameras, a bigger 6,000mAh battery, a newer Exynos 9611 octa-core chipset, and more.

On the software front, the new model runs One UI 1.5 based on Android Pie.
The Galaxy M30s brings some significant hardware and software improvements in the camera department.
