Samsung, which has been dethroned by Xiaomi in India, and threatened by the popularity of Realme, Vivo and other Chinese brands, has now decided something which never has been done before.

This new Samsung Galaxy M series might be an online exclusive smartphone series. The word on the street is that Samsung might launch the Galaxy M30 as well on January 28.

This new smartphone is targeted for the "millennials", and the young users. Samsung is reported to launch the Galaxy M-series models in India with an as low price as Rs. 9,500. "Inspired by millennials and designed in India, Galaxy M will empower the millennials like never before".

The move to launch the Galaxy M series in India first could be related to the company's falling market share in the country. The company sent a press note confirming the launch of the brand new series, adding that the Galaxy M series is created to attract "young millennial consumers". As the company has said it is partnering with Amazon to sell this new series in India.

It seems that Samsung now wants to aggressively target the sub-Rs 10,000 category.

The Galaxy M10 and the M20 series will come with FullView screen having wafer-thin bezels on all sides and boast small curved "V" shaped physical space on top, which will house the front-shooter, while the rest of the sensors will be hidden beneath the screen and the speaker is likely to be wedged in between the frame and the camera.

The range, which will include phones priced up to Rs 20,000, will be sold online only. This can feature a triple camera set-up.

The biggest attraction with the Galaxy M20 will no doubt be its 5,000 mAh battery. Samsung M10 is expected to have 3500 mAh battery.

The Galaxy M10, Galaxy M20, and Galaxy M30 are said to feature "powerful displays, cameras, batteries, and processors".
