Samsung could be planning to launch a brand new Galaxy M-series phone in India this month. According to a new report, Samsung may launch the successor of the Galaxy M40 as early as November 15. This could either mean that the Galaxy M40s or Galaxy M50 is on its way, although nothing has been confirmed nor has it been teased by Samsung yet. More importantly, the next Galaxy M phone will not be online-exclusive and will be sold through offline retail stores as well.
The launch of a new Galaxy M-series has been suggested via a memo from Samsung to its retail partners, The Economic Times reports. A separate report by 91mobiles reveals a screenshot of the message circulated to retail partners via WhatsApp in which Samsung says, “we look forward to provide the next new launch of M series model in offline at the same time and same price.”
This not only suggests the launch of a new Galaxy M phone, but also confirms that the upcoming phone will be made available via offline retail stores on the same day as its online sale date. Moreover, Samsung wants to make sure there is no price discrepancy between the online and offline price of the smartphone.
To recall, the Galaxy M lineup of phones launched in India earlier this year as an online-exclusive series. The company has since launched the Galaxy M10, M20, M30 and M40 as well as some refreshed models like the Galaxy M10s and M30s.
The report by 91mobiles further claims the upcoming Galaxy M phone will be launched on November 15 and could be the Galaxy M50. This part of the report should be taken with a pinch of salt. One assumes the Galaxy M50 would be a high-profile launch and Samsung would have started teasing its launch by now. However, the company has not uttered a word about its next phone launch in India, so a November 15 launch date seems too close to be true.
