Samsung has been very competitive in the flagship pricing till 2018 and hadn’t concentrated on the budget phones till the start of 2019. Samsung just shook the market with its new M and A series especially with the A8s which had a punch hole display. While the M Series was made especially for the Indian Users, it wasn’t launched with Android 9 Pie onboard, and this made all the users unhappy. While Samsung has started rolling out OTA updates to fix the issues, we have also started this series of timeline updates to help you figure out all the details of the latest updates.
The Galaxy M30 is the best phone of this series yet with a 6.4 inch 1080 x 2340 px Display with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. The phone comes with an Octa-Core Exynos 7904 clocked at 1.8Ghz. The phone has a 13+5+5MP Triple camera setup on the back and a 16MP front-facing selfie shooter. The phone comes with a 5000mAH battery to support its backend with a Samsung Adaptive fast charger. The phone doesn’t feel laggy. Also, the phone has a super fast rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

The Galaxy M30 has just received Pie Update, and we cant hope from Samsung to provide two continuous major updates to its budget devices, mainly made for Indian users.
