Samsung Galaxy A90 With Triple Cameras Leak
Samsung’s Galaxy A90 has been the centre of various rumours (1,2) that have been rather convoluting. Initial reports had pointed at the device being the Galaxy A80 renamed for different countries while a fresher rumour claimed it to be an entry to the upcoming Galaxy R series. The latest leaks report that the Galaxy A90 is real and will, in fact, launch in two variants.
And in another addition, one of both likely called #GalaxyA90 (SM-A908) comes with a FHD+ sAMOLED Infinity-U display…— Steve H.McFly (@OnLeaks) June 29, 2019
According to the famous leakster OnLeaks, The Galaxy A90 is said to ship in two variants with their model numbers being SM-A905 and SM-A908. One of these will likely be a “Pro” variant with beefier specs. Furthermore, the higher specced variant could also be the first A series smartphone to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. It is unclear what the standard Galaxy A90 would house but it will most probably be a mid-range chipset like the Snapdragon 730G as found in the Galaxy A80.
The biggest leaks to arrive is regarding the camera of the Galaxy A90 duo. SM-A905 is reportedly equipped with a triple camera set up consisting of a 48MP+12MP+5MP sensors with the new “Tilt OIS” feature. Similarly, the SM-A908 variant also sports the same setup but with different sensors, namely a 48MP+8MP+5MP configuration. Unlike the Galaxy A80, the leak suggests that the upcoming pair of smartphones will not feature any special form of motorized mechanism. Hence, no swivels and rotating cameras.
Additionally, the Galaxy A90’s SM-A908 variant is reported to receive an FHD+ SuperAMOLED Infinity-U display. Both the upcoming devices are said to be sized identically, with a 6.7-inch screen. On the other hand, the high-end SM-A905 is assumed to have a QHD panel with a punch hole.

Shockingly, the leak claims that only the affordable variant of the Galaxy A90 will receive 5G networking which will be skipped on the elder sibling. Samsung might be trying to make an appeal for the higher bandwidth on lower priced devices. This will seek to make the cost of entry to the new network more affordable. The move will likely compete with other OEMs that are equipping 5G modems on their affordable lineups. Samsung brought the first true 5G phone and is now seeking to win the race in lower price segments as well. Unfortunately, finer details are not available as even Samsung has yet to make any official statements regarding the Galaxy A90. Updates will be provided in the arriving weeks.
