Move over Galaxy S, Galaxy P is here. At least, this is what an increasing number of leaks say. The series is purported to kick off with the release of the Galaxy P30 and P30+. It is also possible that one of them will come with in-display fingerprint reading, and will follow the trend of color-gradients for back panels.

SamMobile claims to have exclusive info that points to the release of the Galaxy P phones. The most prominent and popular variant of this new series in the rumor mill is the Galaxy P30. It may also have a corresponding plus model, as with the Galaxy S line of phones.

The Samsung-focused blog also believes that the P30/P30+ will also be distinguished by their inclusion of an in-display fingerprint reader, and that the OEM will pass the Galaxy S10 over in order to include it in these purported phones first by the end of the year. On the other hand, another recent report has suggested that only the P30+ is likely to see this novel feature.

The P30 line is also predicted to have LCD screens rather than Super AMOLED. These phones - which may also go by model numbers along the lines of SM-G6200 - are also rumored to sport color-graded back panels, in line with the trend set by the Oppo Find X and Huawei P20 line. Accordingly, these phones are also projected to be aimed initially at the Chinese market.

Therefore, it may seem that the Galaxy P series is not meant to be a flagship offering, but a more mid-range one in which they can soak-test the emerging and still demonstrably unreliable feature of in-display fingerprint reading. On the other hand, they may also have specs such as 6GB of RAM and at least 64GB in internal storage. These leaks also suggest that Samsung are setting this device line up for increased appeal in the Chinese smartphone space. All in all, it seems that the rest of the world will have longer to wait for Samsung flagships with optical display-mounted biometrics as a security option.
