Samsung Galaxy P30 and P30+ could arrive next month with LCD displays

Samsung Galaxy P30 and P30+ could arrive next month with LCD displays
Samsung Galaxy A8+ with AMOLED display

For years now, Samsung’s smartphones have basically used AMOLED displays exclusively. But according to a new report, the brand’s next device may make use of an LCD panel.

Reportedly, the new display will make its way to both the upcoming Galaxy P30 and the larger Galaxy P30+. At this point, it’s unclear what exact design and specs the new devices will bring. However, considering Samsung’s recent focus on its Infinity Displays, an 18:9 aspect ratio is likely. Moreover, it’s worth pointing out that the Galaxy P line will reportedly target Asian markets such as China and India. This suggests that both smartphones will most likely be positioned in the mid-range segment.

If this is indeed the case, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Samsung’s two smartphones arrive with at least two or three rear cameras and a glass unibody design. Internally, the popularity of Qualcomm processors in these countries means that a Snapdragon chip of some sort is highly likely. Also, gradient color options are to be expected. After all, since Huawei introduced them earlier this year, a number of other manufacturers including Xiaomi and Samsung itself have adopted them.

Currently, the Galaxy P30 and P30+ are expected to make their debut sometime next month. This could suggest that an announcement will take place at Samsung’s October 11 event alongside the Galaxy A9 Pro (2018).

Why not? Huawei use their "note."

Because Huawei might steal 1st place from Samsung in near future. So they did this cheap move to spoof Huawei P30.

Because that is Huawei's strategy. Just giving a taste of their own medicine.

They keep making new phones every month? What about their S9 ang Note 9, are they still selling?

Agreed! I love Samsung devices and all but this is just started to become ridiculous if it isn't already. They have the S, Note, J, A, C, E, Prime, Pro a few others not worth mentioning. The Note series is in a class of it's own. The S series is the upper-end spec series, the J series is the low-end spec devices and then I guess everything else is somewhere in between. Too many different devices to keep up with. Let's not even get started with "+ versions" of the same device.

Samsung appears to be chasing the combined sales for all their devices while making it harder for their consumers to decide what device is best for them. Some of these devices won't receive the same level of support through updates as time moves on and that could push consumers away in the future with the uncertainty of how long their Samsung devices will be supported by Samsung.

I may be a Samsung fan but, even I have to agree with some that Samsung needs to stop Making so many damn phones. Have the S phones and the note phones and maybe one other that is on the cheaper side and stop all the damn others.

While I would agree with you, the fact remains that a vast majority of their profits remain in the lower tiers of smartphones. The flagships aren't selling nearly as well globally, therefor, the more low and mid tier phones they put out, the more money they see rolling in. As confusing as it may seem, to the casual consumer the name SAMSUNG is all that matters on the phone, and specs are a distant second.
