Galaxy A90 will also come with Samsung’s new 25W Fast Charger

The Galaxy A90 is shaping up to be something of an experimental device for Samsung. It’s said to have a pop-up front-facing camera, which extends then rotates the rear-facing shooter then rotates to focus on what’s happening on the user-side, as well as a Crystal Sound-like solution, which sends sound waves through the screen; eliminating the need for a front-facing speaker.

So, it looks like the Galaxy A90 will nudge the envelope in terms of design. But will it do the same on the performance front? Not quite, according to Weibo tipster Martian V, who claims it will have a 6.7-inch FHD+ OLED screen, an unannounced Snapdragon 700-series CPU, a tri-camera (48MP + 8MP + ToF) and a 3700mAh cell, complete with a 25W Fast Charger à la forthcoming Galaxy S10 5G.

With that in mind, the Galaxy A90 is expected to sit beneath the Galaxy S10 quartet in Samsung’s smartphone line up, so it’s far from a flagship; hinting it’s an experimental, one-off handset that has been designed to test market response to a new design concept ahead of a launch on a flagship device, or it could just be another way for Samsung to showcase its engineering prowess.

      A ToF camera uses infrared light (lasers invisible to human eyes) to determine depth information - a bit like how a bat senses it surroundings."

  • Why is it that mid range phones are being released with high speed charging when the newly released flagship model, excluding the S10 5G, still has the same charging capabilities as an S7? There is something seriously wrong with the thought processes at Samsung.

    • Samsung has already said it will test out new features on mid-range devices before bringing them to flagships, so this fits with that strategy. The S10 5G also gets it, but that phone isn't going to be selling in most markets so I guess it doesn't count. Certainly bad that we don't get the faster charging on the S10e, S10, and S10+, though.
