Samsung is going to launch an A-Series device with the flagship specifications – including the Snapdragon 855 and possibly a 5G variant as well. The A-Series device in the talks is the Samsung Galaxy A90. But there’s currently a new rumour which states that the Samsung Galaxy A90 might not have the slide-rotating camera mechanism.
Initially, the Galaxy A90 was rumoured to be the rebranded Galaxy A80 for certain markets. Later, it was rumoured that there won’t be any Galaxy A90 at all as it would be part of the new R-Series of devices. And about a few days ago, the Galaxy A90 got back in action by being rumoured to be a flagship device in the A-Series.
There are supposed to be 2 variants in the Galaxy A90 Series itself. They will be having the following model numbers – SM-A905 and SM-A908. Not only that, but they might even have some so-called “Pro” variants. These Galaxy A90 models are going to debut the Snapdragon 855 – first A-Series device to have flagship chipset.
The one with the model number, SM-A905 will be equipped with a 48MP + 12MP + 5MP triple camera setup. On the other hand, the device with model number, SM-A908 will sport a 48MP + 8MP + 5MP triple camera setup. But as said earlier, these cameras won’t have the slide-rotating camera mechanism which we saw on Galaxy A80. And probably, Samsung is thinking to compensate that by having some mysterious feature named “Tilt OIS”.
According to one of the renowned leaksters – OnLeaks, the Galaxy A90 with the model number – SM-A908 will feature FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U panel. On the other hand, the SM-A905 might come with the QHD+ Super AMOLED panel. This is to compensate for having Infinity-U panel instead of the futuristic camera mechanism.
The Galaxy SM-A908 is said to have the 5G variant while the SM-A905 might not have it. So, it looks like some corners had to be cut to keep the prices in the upper-midrange segment so that they can compete with the flagships from several other manufacturers. Anyways, with so many leaks coming in, the Samsung Galaxy A90’s launch might not be far away.
