Samsung recently launched its new smartphone in the Galaxy M-series named Galaxy M40. The Galaxy M40 was the first smartphone in its series to be powered by a Snapdragon CPU and come with a punch hole display camera. Other than that, the Samsung Galaxy M40 was also the successor to the Samsung Galaxy M30 released earlier this year in February.
Now, according to a recent report, the South Korean tech giant is working on a new variant of its Samsung Galaxy M30 smartphone. And there are hearsays that the Samsung Galaxy M30’s new variants might be launched in the coming weeks as it was spotted earlier on a benchmarking platform. The device will be called the Samsung Galaxy M30s and according to the sightings from Geekbench benchmarking platform, it will pack 4GB of RAM.
The benchmarking platform also revealed that the device will run on Android 9 Pie. This is definitely an upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy M30 that was launched with Android 8.1 Oreo.
The new Samsung Galaxy M30s comes with a model number SM-M307F, and it was spotted on Geekbench. The spotting reveals that the device will be powered by the Exynos 9610 SoC rather than Snapdragon CPU. Comparing it to the original Samsung Galaxy M30 which ran on Exynos 7904 SoC the new Samsung Galaxy M30s CPU is definitely an improvement. The Galaxy M30s’s Exynos 9610 CPU reportedly clocks at 2.3GHz on its highest rate and it comes paired with a fairly powerful GPU – the Mali G72 MP3.
Talking about the benchmarking performance of the Samsung Galaxy M30s, it scored 1,680 on the single core and 5,211 on the multi-core tests on Geekbench 4. Comparing it with the scores of the original Samsung Galaxy M30, these are definitely higher. And there is no doubt that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M30s will offer a better performance than the regular Samsung Galaxy M30.
There is a possibility that the device will be called the Samsung Galaxy M30s and it will come in multiple RAM and storage variants similar to the regular Galaxy M30. The benchmarking shows that the device packs 4GB of RAM, but it might also come in a 6GB RAM variant. What upgrades it packs over the original Samsung Galaxy M30 and what improvements and changes it brings will be seen once it launches in the market. But considering that the 4GB RAM variant of the Samsung Galaxy M30 costs Rs 14,990 and the 6GB RAM variant costs Rs 17,990, it will be interesting to see what price the upgraded Samsung Galaxy M30s will have.
