One of the biggest innovations of 2018 is the in-display fingerprint sensor. Samsung, the smartphone giant is all set to include an ultrasound fingerprint sensor on its Galaxy S10 flagship. However, a new report has claimed that first Samsung phones to feature this technology would be the Galaxy P30 and P30+. Both the devices are expected to launch in October as well.
These speculations started when a Twitter handle revealed that Samsung is installing an in-display fingerprint sensor on its phone made especially for the Chinese market. Later, the model number of this alleged P-series phone was leaked to be SMG6200. Now, a new report on Weibo has claimed that this model number is nothing but a representation of Galaxy P30 or P30+ smartphones.
Interestingly, these new P-series devices would fall under the mid-range category. Their in-display fingerprint sensor would not be as advanced as the Qualcomm’s ultrasound one on the Galaxy S10. The Galaxy P30 and P30+ are also likely to arrive with more affordable IPS LCD display panels against the Super AMOLED infinity display panels of the Samsung flagships. Almost all the current phones with an in-display fingerprint sensor use AMOLED displays which are thinner and conserve battery by lighting each pixel.
It’d be interesting to note how the IPS LCD display of Galaxy P30 and P30+ performs this task. However, special in-display fingerprint sensors made to work with LCD panels have been in rumours for quite some time. Whatever the case might turn out to be, we won’t have to wait until 2019 to see this technology on Samsung phones.
