Samsung is on the final round of preparations for unveiling a mid-range smartphone which is expected to be launched next month. If the rumors turn out to be true, the device will more likely be launched during the ‘4X the Fun’ event on 11th of next month.
Earlier, the Samsung P30 was expected to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor but it turns out that the device features a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. Today, the key specifications of the smartphone have been leaked as it got listed in TENAA.
The certification does not reveal many details though it hints at major design aspects. The Galaxy P30 will launch with the model number SM-G6200. This may change depending on the market where it is launched. The screen size is expected to be 5.99-inch with LCD display. The dimensions of the phone are 156.14 x 76.5 x 8.39(mm). The company has probably packed a 3300mAh battery.
The camera is a vertically stacked dual camera setup with LED flash at the bottom of the secondary sensor. The fingerprint sensor is mounted on the center of the rear side, which looks like an ideal place to mount the fingerprint sensor. The handset will support dual SIM with dual standby. This is how the device looks from the side.
There might be another variant for the P30 with the name P30 Plus featuring an in-display fingerprint sensor. It is also expected that the P30+ might feature a triple camera setup as seen on the Samsung Galaxy A7(2018). There will be two storage variants to choose from – 64 GB or 128 GB and will be available in four color variants – Blue, Black, Red, and Pink. The processor powering the device is expected to be Exynos 7885 or the Snapdragon 710 depending on the market where it launches. We’ll get to know more regarding the specifications of the device once the device gets launched. Stay tuned for updates regarding the device.
Samsung Galaxy A20 Spotted in Geekbench, Comes with Exynos 7885!
Samsung is expected to add up to 9 devices in its Galaxy A series smartphones. This will be in addition to the Galaxy S10 line-up and the Galaxy M series which is expected soon. The Korean manufacturer has not revealed any useful information about any of the upcoming Galaxy A devices yet, but they have started appearing in benchmarking sites like GeekBench.
Today, a Samsung Galaxy smartphone with model number SM-A205FN was spotted in GeekBench’s database. Since, the Galaxy A30 and Galaxy A40 has already appeared in the benchmarking site, the new device is speculated to be the Galaxy A20.
From the GeekBench specs list, the Galaxy A20 will be powered by the same 14nm octa-core Exynos 7885 clocked at 1.35GHz like the Galaxy A30. It will be paired with 3GB RAM and run on Android 9 Pie out of the box. Since it will be arriving after the S10 launch it will likely to come with the company’s new One UI. The smartphone managed a score of 1099 and 3456 points on the single core and multi-core tests respectively.
There is no other information from the GeekBench listing but from the previous reports, the upcoming Galaxy A series will feature a Infinity V display along with a in-screen fingerprint sensor. However, the most basic of the series Galaxy A20 is reported to get a more traditional rear or side mounted fingerprint sensor instead.
Samsung has not announced any launch date but the Galaxy A20 and the more Premium Galaxy A series is expected to arrive in the Q1 2019 end or early Q2 2019. We expect more information to be revealed from other certification and benchmarking sites. Keep tuned.
