The smartphone is available for purchase in Italy and Spain via Amazon. The Galaxy M30 sale will commence at 12 PM in the country.

Samsung, however, is launching only the 4GB+64GB variant of the Galaxy M20 in Europe, with a price tag of 229 euro.

Both the smartphones come with stereo speakers, a USB Type-C port, IP68 water-resistance, and a dedicated Bixby button. It offers a waterdrop-shaped notched panel. The device runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung Experience 9.5 on top.

The company is offering an option to expand the storage by up to 512GB using a microSD card slot.

The camera configuration includes a regular 77-degree 12MP sensor with an F1.5/F2.4 variable aperture, a 12MP 2x telephoto snapper with a 45-degree viewing angle and a fixed aperture of F/2.4 and an ultra-wide 16MP camera with a 123-degree viewing angle and a fixed F2.2 aperture. On the photography front, Samsung fused a triple camera setup at the back.

There is a 16-megapixel front shooter for selfies, which also supports selfie focus. The Galaxy S10e has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor instead of hiding one behind the display, it employs Gorilla Glass 5 instead of the 6th generation, and the smaller 5.8-inch display is flat and doesn't curve around the edges. Analysts have predicted that the South Korean giant will be selling around 40-45 million units of S10 series smartphones this year.

The issue with all these facial recognition systems implemented in current commercial products is that they don't perform any type of 3D depth scans of the tested face, but merely look at the position of the eyes, nose, or mouth to authorize a person and unlock a device -hence the reason majority can be bypassed by flashing photos or videos in front of their cameras.
