In an obvious attempt to catch up with the growing numbers of its Chinese smartphone-manufacturing rivals, Samsung is now tipped to feature another trendy mobile advancement in its upcoming smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A90.
Serial tipster Ice universe has revealed that the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy A90 is set to feature a pop-up selfie camera. The revelation comes in a tweet indicating that the forthcoming iteration is "perfect." He then followed the tweet with an explanation relative to his statement, saying that the device will come without a notch or a punch hole. If this tipping pans out, it would be the first Samsung Galaxy smartphone to come with such highly-advanced camera features.
The Samsung Galaxy A90's purported pop-up selfie camera follows a growing trend among smartphone manufacturers to sport the iconic camera design. In 2018, when the size of notches were reduced varyingly, some brands were able to maximize the display's potential even further by arming their iterations with a glorified motorized assembly and a pop-up module. The pioneers of these mobile breakthroughs are now on the OPPO Find X and the Vivo NEX S.
And while the Galaxy A90's speculated pop-up camera offering seems to be generating a great buzz for the South Korean tech company, it wouldn't be the first smartphone to come with such a feature this 2019. Reports indicate that the Vivo V15 Pro will also come with the same feature. Note that the latter also belongs to an upper-midrange segment of smartphones. As far as which between the two is better, we can only wait for their respective launch dates.
Apart from the Samsung Galaxy A90 and the Vivo V15 Pro, other smartphones are also rumored to come with the now popular camera trend. These include the OPPO R19, the OPPO R19 Pro, and the Vivo X25 – all of which are slated to debut during the first quarter of 2019.
The other features and specifications of the Samsung Galaxy A90 are still under wraps. Speculations are rife though that the device will boast of 6GB/8GB RAM tiers with internal storage of 128GB. In terms of display, the handset is rumored to feature a true bezel-less display with more than a 92% screen-to-body ratio. This design can now be gleaned from its concept images which surfaced just recently.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 is also tipped to retail in three color variants – Black, Gold, and Silver.
