The new smartphones will be exclusive to Amazon India and can also be purchased via the Samsung Online store. Neil Shah, research director, devices and ecosystems at Counterpoint Research, however, expressed scepticism about Samsung's chances to break Xiaomi's hold on the ecommerce segment, saying the South Korean company is a year late with this series since the average selling prices online have moved beyond Rs 10,000. We should start seeing some teasers from Samsung now that it has confirmed the launch of the Galaxy M series in India on January 28.

Samsung's microsite went live today in India which also confirms the launch date which is January 28. The company also stated that all the Galaxy M series smartphones will also be available on their own online store, for consumers to purchase.

Samsung will be launching the Galaxy M series in India prior to a global rollout.

While there used to be a very clear divide between mid-range smartphones and high-end flagships, the lines have increasingly blurred over the past few years.

Samsung set to launch India-first online-only Galaxy M series this month-end

Samsung has been struggling to maintain its spot as a market leader in India for the past three quarters, while Xiaomi has been steadily holding the top spot.

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. The Galaxy M10 and M20 have been rumoured to be the first Samsung phones with Infinity-V displays.

Going by the earlier reports and the new official press renders, which reveal the new M series will be featuring Samsung's new Infinity-V displays, which the Korean tech giant introduced during their Developer Conference previous year. Meant to appeal to a millennial audience, the new series of phones have been designed in India.
