Samsung Galaxy P30

Samsung Galaxy P30

The Samsung Galaxy P30 is a strange beast. Much of its strangeness stems from the fact that there’s no official confirmation about its existence. As of this writing, there’s not even any consensus even on what it should be called. Some postulate it as the code name for the Samsung upcoming Galaxy A6s smartphone, whereas another rumour pits it as the China-only smartphone that recently underwent several rounds of certification. The expected specifications too are all over the place with some pegging it to be powered by the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, whereas other reports expecting it to run the newer Snapdragon 670 under the hood.

The speculation continues with some claiming that the phone will feature a 6-inch LCD screen replete with an in-display fingerprint scanner, whereas others peg it to feature a 6-inch AMOLED display and traditional rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. This is where we would like to point out that current LCD technology cannot accommodate in-display fingerprint scanners due to its thickness and opacity. There is some consensus on the battery being 3300mAh unit, with the rear camera sporting a dual-camera system with a 12+2-megapixel depth sensing setup.

Samsung Galaxy P30 and P30 Plus: TENAA Certification

The alleged Galaxy P30, which carries the model number SM-G6200, has now been spotted on TENAA. Apparently, these new phones would be exclusive to China at first. The listing on the certification site reveals that the Galaxy P30 would come with a 5.99-inch LCD display, and a 3300mAh battery.



Those are all the details that were described in the listing, along with some device photos. The phone appears to not have any notch at the front but has a fingerprint scanner at the back along with a dual-rear camera setup. Yes, that seems wrong, since these phones are supposed to have in-display fingerprint scanners.

It is possible that the Galaxy P30 Plus would have the scanner under the display, while the Galaxy P30 would not. We shall have to wait for an official announcement to find out. Apart from these new details, the rumors suggest that the phone will come in two storage variants; 64GB and 128GB. It will also be available in four color options; Blue, Black, Red, and Pink. As these are mid-range phones, they will ship with a mid-range chipset such as the Exynos 7885 or the Snapdragon 710.

That’s all we know about the new Galaxy P30 and Galaxy P30 Plus from Samsung. As we mentioned earlier, these could be launched during the ‘4X the Fun’ Event that’s happening on October 11th. Stay tuned for more!
