To win over the budget and mid-budget segment, which has mostly been dominated by Xiaomi, Oppo, and Realme, Samsung's had its Galaxy A-series, which includes Galaxy A30, Galaxy A70 (Review), among others. Earlier this year, Samsung also announced the Galaxy M-series, which includes Galaxy M30 (Review), Galaxy M40(Review) and more. Both these series have been online-exclusive. However, reportedly Samsung is exploring the offline market for the "forthcoming smartphones" in the M-series.
As reported by Economic Times, Samsung is working on the next smartphone in the M-series — Galaxy M50 —which will also be available for offline purchases. Reportedly, the price of the smartphone will remain the same as the online price.
Another report by 91 Mobiles confirms the same. The report says that a Samsung spokesperson has revealed that the brand will make its next M-series smartphone available offline at the same time and price as online. He further added, "We shall evaluate the incremental value proposition for our consumers, channel partners, and retailers, and take further action accordingly."
