Samsung To Debut A New Mid Range Galaxy R Series
Samsung introduced the Galaxy M and the refreshed Galaxy A lineup of smartphones earlier this year; in a bid to take back the market lost to Chinese OEMs like Xiaomi, Honor and Realme. The company has since seen significant success with both the lineups in countries like India. Now, a known gadget tipster has claimed that Samsung is looking forward to introducing a brand new series which will be called the Galaxy R.

According to the tipster who goes by the username @OnLeaks on Twitter, the Samsung Galaxy R series of the smartphone will cater to the mid-range. Two devices are currently in development in the lineup, out of which both of them have a huge display and triple rear cameras. It is claimed that at least one of the handsets in the upcoming series will have support for 5G; the next generation of mobile networks.
The other smartphone is touted to have a unique camera feature, details of which are unknown at the moment. One of the smartphones in the Samsung Galaxy R series may be the long rumoured Galaxy A90 which will be rebranded into the new lineup. The device has the model number SM-A90X and was leaked a while ago, but was later claimed to be launched as the Galaxy A80 back in the month of April. This suggests that the “unique” camera feature may be a pop-up mechanism to house the front-facing camera; as the feature was expected to debut with the Galaxy A90.

The upcoming 5G smartphone in Samsung’s R series will not be the first 5G capable device from the company. It has earlier launched the Galaxy S10 5G back in the month of February. While the handset caters to the premium category, the 5G R series device is expected to be a mid-range handset, so it may be the world’s most affordable 5G smartphone when it is introduced. Unfortunately, more details about the lineup including the price and rest of the specifications are unknown at the moment but are expected to be revealed in the following weeks.
