Earlier this year, Samsung had promised to launch a new Galaxy A-series smartphone every month till June 2019. Till now, the company has kept its promise as there are more than 10 smartphones launched under the Galaxy A-series in the last 5 months. Till now, the top-end and the most unique smartphone in the Galaxy A-series is the Galaxy A80, that came with the world’s first rotating camera. Now, according to reports, Samsung might be planning to launch a new Galaxy A90 smartphone in the next few weeks. Last week, there were reports that Samsung Galaxy A90 would be a part of the company’s Galaxy R-series but now, the report seems to be incorrect. According to some new sources, the smartphone will be a part of the Galaxy A-series only and it would not be rebranded.
Currently, Samsung Galaxy A90 is still under development and it will be launched sometime in future. However, there is no specific timeline for the launch that has been confirmed as of now. According to a new leak, the device will come in two variants. The two variant of the Galaxy A90 holds the model names – SM-A905 and the SM-A908.
The Samsung Galaxy A90’s SM-A905 model will come with 4G connectivity and it will sport a large 6.7-inch display. The device will also come with an in-display fingerprint scanner and it will feature a triple rear camera setup. Its camera will reportedly comprise of a 48MP main camera sensor paired with a 12MP secondary camera along with a 5MP tertiary sensor. Other than that, there is also a new and unknown feature that the Galaxy A90 will be coming with called the “Tilt OIS”. From just the name, it sounds like a camera-related feature but nothing is known about what it is and what it does.
On the other hand, the Galaxy A90 with model number SM-A908 is the 5G variant and it sports a similar screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner. However, its sensors vary, it too features a triple-rear camera setup. Its camera setup includes a main 48MP primary sensor paired with an 8MP secondary sensor and a third 5MP tertiary sensor.
Camera features aside, the most important aspect of both these models of the Galaxy A90 is that they will reportedly be powered by the Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC. This makes it the first smartphone in the Galaxy A-series to be powered by the top-end Snapdragon CPU as all the other devices in the Galaxy A-series house Exynos or lesser CPUs.
If the reports are true, then it might be Samsung’s way of bringing a flagship CPU in an affordable smartphone. Although the price, the launch date and other details of the Galaxy A90 is still unknown, it will be launched sometime in the future.
