Samsung's affordable M-series may not be as varied and all-encompassing as the recent A roster, but there's still a fair bit of segmentation for you to negotiate when picking one up. We have today the Galaxy M30 - essentially a Galaxy M20, but with a Super AMOLED display.
That's not all, though. Alongside the superior screen, you'd also be getting an extra depth-sensing camera on the back joining the primary 13MP module and the 5MP ultra-wide. Over on the front, there's another upgrade - the selfie shooter's resolution has been doubled to 16MP. Then there's the M30's RAM and storage options, which start where the M20 peaks - the base model is 4/64GB, but there's also a 6/128GB version.
Some areas have remained unchanged and that includes the Exynos 7904 chipset - an efficient SoC that's not exactly a chart-topper in terms of performance. The 5,000mAh battery, on the other hand, is among the biggest you can get on a big name brand smartphone.
The Galaxy M30 is packaged identically to the M20 and the box contents don't differ much either. There's an AC adapter that's rated at 9V/1.67A and 5V/2A and is Qualcomm QuickCharge 2.0 compliant - or Adaptive Fast Charge as Samsung calls it. It's the same unit that ships with the S10 flagships if that will make you feel better about a charger that's been around since the S5. A USB-A-to-C cable is also included, and there's a clear silicone case to get you started on protection.
