Samsung’s Android smartphones have been using AMOLED displays for years now, but it looks like that’s about to change. A new rumor claims that Samsung’s next mid-range handsets will be the Galaxy P30 and Galaxy P30+ and both handset are said to arrive with LCD displays.

The names of the the handsets were first reported by SmartPrix, which cited several popular Chinese leakers. The Galaxy P30 and P30+ are both said to be carrying the codename “Phoenix” and may be released sometime next month. Samsung does have a special press event scheduled for Oct. 11, so it’s possible that the handsets will make their first appearance there.

Unfortunately, there’s currently no information as to what these Samsung smartphones will look like. Phone Arena speculates that the Galaxy P30 phones may arrive with Infinity Display designs along with a screen aspect ratio of 18:9. This is certainly possible since Infinity Displays are no longer exclusive to Samsung’s high-end devices.

The Galaxy P handsets are said to be only aiming for Asian markets, particularly China and India. If this is accurate, then it means that these devices will have mid-range specs. Samsung could also use Qualcomm’s chipsets to power the handsets, since Snapdragon processors are already popular in those markets.

The Galaxy P30 and P30+ could also arrive with dual cameras, which is no longer that uncommon in mid-range phones. There’s a possibility that the two devices could arrive with triple cameras on their backs, which doesn’t seem too outlandish since Samsung’s mid-range Galaxy A7 (2018) already has a triple-camera setup on its back. The Galaxy P series phones could also arrive with glass unibody designs.

Another interesting piece of news about the Galaxy P30 is that it may be the very first Samsung phone to come with an in-display fingerprint scanner. SamMobile speculates that Samsung wants to better compete in China, which is why it wants to release a new smartphone there with an in-display fingerprint scanner.

SamMobile also expects the Galaxy P phones to use optical in-display fingerprint sensors. It’s currently being rumored that Samsung will use a high-end ultrasonic in-display fingerprint sensor for the Galaxy S10 next year. It would make sense that Samsung would try to split up its in-display fingerprint sensor offerings by reserving the superior technology for its first high-end premium flagship in 2019.
