“The Galaxy P30 will be the first smartphone in the brand’s P series”
There have been talks about Samsung equipping its upcoming flagship smartphone – the Galaxy S10 with an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, if the recent reports are to be believed, it’s the Galaxy P30 which will be the all-new in-display fingerprint sensor smartphone. The smartphone was rumoured to be launched as early as next month in China and as if on cue, it has been spotted on China’s 3C certifications agency’s website now.
According to the earlier rumours, the smartphone bears the model number SM-G6200 and will be dubbed as the Galaxy P30. Now, the same model number has been spotted on the Chinese certifications website. However, the listing doesn’t reveal anything concrete, except that the launch date might be closer than we thought. Recently, the popular leakster @MMDJ_ claimed that the brand is working on a new smartphone with an in-display fingerprint scanner in China, he also revealed that the P30 will have an LCD panel. This bit of information is a bit confusing since current-gen under-display biometrics are designed to work only with OLED panels. So the P30 might ship with a conventional fingerprint scanner only.
The leakster then went on to clarify that the new Galaxy P30 is likely to come with a high-end spec sheet and an affordable price tag. Another recent report has revealed that the Galaxy P30 will be offered in two storage variants – 64GB and 128GB. Both models are speculated to sport 6 gigs of RAM. Further, the reports claim that Chaebol will offer the new smartphone in blue, pink, black and red hues. However, nothing else is known about the upcoming smartphone at the moment.
There are rumours that the P30 will be accompanied by a beefed-up variant – the P30+, and the duo will be exclusive to Asian markets. The smartphones are speculated to launch in China by the end of this year.
