First Galaxy device with in-display fingerprint scanner could arrive next month
Samsung Galaxy Note 9
Back in July, one industry insider revealed that Samsung had plans to introduce two new smartphone lines in China known as Galaxy P and Galaxy R. At the moment, it’s unclear what smartphones the latter series will encompass, but the Galaxy P devices are expected to sit in the mid-range segment. And today, thanks once again to the same tipster, it appears Samsung may have a rather impressive launch up its sleeves.
Set to go official sometime next month, the first Galaxy P smartphone will rather predictably be called the Galaxy P1. Presently, no comments surrounding the official spec sheet have been made, but when the expected market positioning is taken into account, an Exynos processor is highly likely alongside at least 3 or 4 gigs of RAM. In addition to this, considering the aim at the Chinese market, a dual-camera setup is a possibility too. However, keeping with Samsung’s traditions and defying recent design directions, a notchless display should also be present.
While on the subject of the display, a separate tweet has suggested that the Galaxy P1’s most impressive feature may actually lie beneath the panel. See, following a number of smartphones that have utilized the technology, Samsung’s next Chinese mid-ranger may also incorporate an in-display fingerprint scanner.
For now, this all still remains speculation and the second tweet could easily relate to another Galaxy device destined for China. However, the information does coincide with recent comments by Samsung executives that stated that new features will now make their initial debut inside mid-range offerings.
