Over the past month, Samsung has been trying to regain lost ground over the average Indian consumer. Off late, their phones have been overshadowed by Xiaomi, OPPO and Vivo budget smartphones. With Samsung's recently launched M series, however, they aim to tap into that market again and make the best of the situation. Yesterday, the company announced the newest addition to the line-up aimed at millennials, the Galaxy M30.

Here's all you need to know about the smartphone.

The company claims that the Exynos 7904 processor comes with a feature that allows it to multitask and consume very little power, which should enhance the battery life.

The company claims that the phone will outshine the competitors when it comes to camera performance. This can largely be owed to the triple rear camera setup that the phone offers.

In order to help with unhindered gaming and multitasking performance, the phone comes with a massive 5,000mAH battery paired with fast charging via a USB type C charger. To top it off, the phone will come equipped with the latest in the line Android 9.0 Pie operating system.

The smartphone will be available on both and starting March 5.

The company has also partnered up with Jio 4G to bring some unmissable benefits. Users of the Galaxy M series can avail of double-data on plans worth ₹198 and ₹299.
