South Korean electronics major – Samsung certainly isn’t done releasing smartphones this year. And following the news that its very first foldable, bendable smartphone could be arriving just before the year runs out, a new report from Korea suggest the Korean Chaebol has one more surprise up its sleeve.
While the news just broke that its rival over in Cupertino might not hop on the on-screen fingerprint sensor bandwagon soon, Samsung, on the other hand, is reported to have perfected plans to release three variants of the Galaxy S10 with the on-screen fingerprint sensor. Going by the latest report, however, the Galaxy S10 might not be the firm’s first devices to come fitted with the technology that has since found its way to a couple of smartphones out of China.

Twitter leakster @MMDDJ_ has just revealed that Samsung is preparing a new Galaxy P1 smartphone with the on-screen fingerprint sensor for the Chinse market. When asked what time the device would arrive, it was revealed that the alleged Galaxy P1 device could be made official as early as October, even though no specific timeline was given.
At this point, the full specs sheet remains everyone’s guess, it is very much likely the supposed Galaxy P1 smartphone would come with Samsung’s own Exynos processor with at least 4GB of RAM, a notch-free design in line with Sammy’s recent releases, and possibly with a dual-camera setup to at least appeal to the targeted market.
The smartphone market in line with recent trends is gradually shifting to devices with under-display fingerprint scanners, and been a major player in the industry, it shouldn’t be long before Samsung incorporate such feature in their phones.
