Sanket Vijayasarathy New DelhiSeptember 17, 2019UPDATED: September 18, 2019 13:15 IST Samsung Galaxy M30s will offer a 6,000mAh battery and 48MP triple cameras, both of which are upgrades over the M30.HIGHLIGHTSSamsung Galaxy M30s will launch in India on September 18.It features a 6,000mAh battery and a 48MP triple camera.Galaxy M30s is expected to launch between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 in India.Samsung has been quite aggressive this year, launching a number of Galaxy M and A series phones in India that range from budget to mid-range. Under the Galaxy M series, Samsung has introduced the Galaxy M10, M20, M30 and M40. The Galaxy A list is even bigger, going all the way up to the A80. Samsung is not done, however, as it is looking at bringing updated models of phones launched in the first half of the year. It has already announced the Galaxy A30s and A50s in India. On Wednesday, September 18, Samsung will bring the Galaxy M30s.The Galaxy M30s will be based on the M30, but will pack a bunch of upgrades to keep it more relevant. Not that the M30 is less relevant, but given the ever-growing competition in the budget and mid-range segments in India, the M30s will look to offer something unique. The one big USP of the Galaxy M30s that Samsung has been hyping is its massive 6,000mAh battery. Here’s what else we know so far.– The Galaxy M30 already offers a large 5,000mAh battery, but the M30s will take it a few notches higher with a 6,000mAh capacity, which would be a first for any phone in this segment. The M30s will tout a two-day battery life on its massive 6,000mAh battery, which should be plenty for gaming and video streaming on the go.– This will be the first phone in India to offer a 6,000mAh battery. The only other phone that offers this capacity is the Asus ROG Phone 2, which will launch in India on September 23 at a much more premium price point.advertisement– Samsung has also revealed that the Galaxy M30s will come with a Super AMOLED display. Renders of the smartphone show that the M30s will sport an Infinity-U waterdrop screen much like its predecessor.– As mentioned earlier, the Galaxy M30s will be a major upgrade over the M30. In addition to a larger battery, the M30s will also get a new and faster mobile processor. Samsung is yet to reveal the details of the processor, but you can expect it to be an upgrade over the 1.8Gz Exynos 7904 chipset that powered the M30 and M20.– The Galaxy M30s will also get an upgraded triple camera setup. The system will include a 48MP primary sensor as per Samsung’s teaser. Additionally, we expect to see a wide-angle lens and a depth sensor. To recall, the Galaxy M30 comes with a 13MP primary camera, 5MP ultra wide-angle sensor with f/2.2 aperture and a 5MP f/2.2 depth sensor.– According to a recent listing on TENAA, the Galaxy M30s will come with 18W fast charging support, which would be slightly faster than the 15W fast charging tech on the M30. That being said, the M30s gets a bigger battery as well, so it will be interesting to see how long the 18W charger will take to fully charge up the device.– Additional specs revealed by TENAA include a 6.4-inch FHD+ display, 24MP selfie camera and up to 6GB of RAM.– As for the pricing, the Galaxy M30s is expected to launch at prices similar to the M30. We expect the phone to cost somewhere between Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000.– In addition to the Galaxy M30s, Samsung will also launch the Galaxy M10s and a new Galaxy M30 3GB + 32GB variant. The M10s will be a refreshed version of the M10 with an upgraded dual camera setup, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and a possible 4,000mAh battery priced under Rs 10,000.ALSO READ | Samsung Galaxy A50s, Galaxy A30s launched in India: Specs, availability detailsGet real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

The events, set in the future, are fictionalised but are based on real members of the Royal family, with actors cast for their resemblance to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.King Charles is played by Tim Pigott-Smith, who died suddenly last month before the television version could be broadcast.Although well-received by critics on the stage, Goold conceded the BBC version would be more controversial.“The TV audience is much bigger and broader,” he said. “But I hope that people who think it’s going to be anti-monarchist will watch the whole thing because I think it’s nuanced.” Camilla, King Charles III, Kate Middleton, Prince William, Prince Harry Credit:Robert Viglasky/Drama Republic The one-off drama, which is likely to appall staunch royalists, tells the story of King Charles III and his scheming family, as they embark on a constitutional crisis so extreme that a ruthless Duchess of Cambridge plots to depose him.Scenes include an opening shot of the Queen’s coffin, two appearances from the ghost of Diana, Princess of Wales, and the Duchess of Cornwall slapping Prince William in the face.Goold said the show contained issues of the “greatest sensitivity”, with some scenes altered for the BBC from the original stage version so as not to compromise the national broadcaster.

Getting the play into the public domain in the first place, he said, had require “long conversations” with lawyers, with one scene involving Diana, Princess of Wales considered “too mocking” to air on the BBC.He added “certain actors”, whom he chose not to name, had refused to be involved in the production over fears it might jeopardise a future knight or damehood.Asked by Radio Times magazine whether there had been any “difficult editorial conversations” about King Charles III with the BBC, Goold said: “There was one.“The issue of greatest sensitivity was always how the funeral of the Queen would be presented and what that would mean for a BBC that covers such events for real.“But we also changed one line in Diana’s prophecy about Charles as King because it somehow felt too mocking.” Credit:Robert Viglasky/Drama Republic Jessica and Prince Harry Credit:Robert Viglasky/Drama Republic But John Whittingdale, a Tory MP and former Culture Secretary, said there was no need for anyone to be offended on behalf of the Queen.”It’s a drama, it’s not presented as fact,” he said. “It was extremely well reviewed and well received as a play.”Some of my colleagues get hysterical about this kind of thing. I don’t think the Queen is the least bit offended.”If the BBC has commissioned a production of a decent play how can one possibly object to that? High-quality drama is at the heart of public service broadcasting.”King Charles III will air on BBC Two on Wednesday, May 10 at 9pm. The BBC, which employs a Royal Liaison Officer, said only that Buckingham Palace was “aware” of the production, but refused to comment on whether they discussed the drama with advisors.Buckingham Palace declined to comment.King Charles III’s first review from the Telegraph, which awarded the play five stars, noted it would have caused heads to roll in a different era, with critic Charles Spencer concluding: “I would deferentially suggest that the Prince of Wales gives it a miss.”Sir Gerald Howarth, a former defence minister and outgoing Tory MP, said: “We have a sovereign who commands universal respect across the nation and the rest of the World. It is extraordinarily insensitive for an organisation which is so consumed with political correctness.”It is pure indulgence by the BBC to run a play featuring the demise of the sovereign and ascribing to a popular member of the Royal member [the Duchess of Cambridge] base motives.” The late Tim Pigott-Smith as Charles IIICredit:Robert Viglasky/ Drama Republic British actors refused to take roles in controversial drama King Charles III for fear it might jeopardise their knighthoods, its director has claimed. Rupert Goold, who directed the play and its new television adaption, said parts had been turned down by those who worried how it “might affect their future relationship with the honours system”.The role of King Charles III was taken by the late Tim Pigott-Smith, who has received an OBE, with Charlotte Riley joining the television version to play the Duchess of Cambridge.
