Samsung's Galaxy M series is launching in India on January 28

The company's new Galaxy M series (now being teased on Amazon) is a prime example. However, the recent introduction of the new Redmi Note 7 might turn it into an impossible task.

In December, the government had introduced new regulations - effective February 1 - that would bar online marketplaces with foreign investments from selling products of the companies where they hold stakes, and ban exclusive marketing arrangements.

Samsung has been hinting at the Galaxy M for quite some time and its features were tipped in leaks earlier this month.

In their press release, Samsung has refused to share details about the specs and features, and have said, "Samsung's new range of Galaxy M smartphones come with powerful display, powerful camera, powerful battery and a powerful processor helping the smartphones deliver power-packed performance for young millennials".

Samsung has been sharpening its focus on India, home to more than a billion wireless subscribers and where roughly 350 million users still do not use smartphones. Both the handsets are expected to come with Infinity-V display, which is the company's water drop notch version.

The report says that the Galaxy M20 from Samsung will come with 3.5mm headphone jack, USB Type-C port and speakers at the top and bottom of the device. A Galaxy M30 is also believed to be in the works. Today we get a couple of images that seem to be part of the upcoming M20's manual. The latter is expected to house a 5,000mAh battery.

After playing second fiddle to Chinese rival Xiaomi in India's burgeoning smartphone market in 2018, Samsung is set to fight back with a new line of budget-friendly handsets. The phone will run Android Oreo 8.1.

The India-made phones, priced from less than 10,000 rupees ($141.80) up to 20,000 rupees, will carry chunkier batteries and features such as quick charging, Warsi said.
