The Samsung Galaxy M series is a line of online-exclusive budget smartphones manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The M stands for MILLENNIALS in Samsung M series. The Samsung M series smartphones comes with the big battery. Samsung Galaxy M series is launched in India on February 5, 2019 with primary focus to target Budget segment ( up to 20000 Rs.) and boost the online sales of Samsung devices. Another focus of Samsung through this series is to rival Xiaomi and Realme in order to gain online market share.
The Samsung M Series lineup includes entry-level handsets like the Galaxy M10 and budget handsets like the Galaxy M40 and the Galaxy M30s. While older models of the Samsung Galaxy M Series came with Samsung’s own 7-Series processors, some of the newer ones have seen an upgrade to the faster 9 series chips. Samsung Galaxy M Series mobiles also come with very competent camera features with several models featuring dual or triple rear cameras with a dedicated ultra-wide-angle camera.
Samsung Galaxy M Series is Made in India at Samsung’s biggest mobile factory in the world at Noida, Uttar Pradesh. India not only has Samsung’s biggest mobile factory, but it’s also the largest mobile phone manufacturing unit in the world based on production capacity. Much of the supply is meant for the Indian market. Given the import taxes in the country, Samsung needs local production in order to effectively compete against its rivals on price. The company has been manufacturing its Galaxy M and Galaxy A series handsets here as well. However, Samsung may also export Indian-manufactured smartphones to markets in Europe, Africa and West Asia.
