Rumor: 2020 Galaxy A lineup could get drastic camera upgrades

Samsung will refresh its Galaxy A series next year, that’s to be expected. Not much has surfaced about them so far, aside from the potential naming scheme they will allegedly employ. However, a new rumor passed along on Twitter claims to reveal the main camera configuration for the entire Galaxy A (2020) lineup, from the budget Galaxy A21 up to the higher-end Galaxy A91.

The Galaxy A (2020) models to have no fewer than three main cameras?

If the rumor is correct – and we are unable to confirm if it is at this point – then every smartphone model in the Galaxy A (2020) lineup will have three rear-facing sensors at the least, while a handful of other models will also be complemented by an additional ToF module.

This is somewhat unusual because ToF sensors have so far been reserved for the more premium devices. But new technologies tend to become more affordable as they advance, so the idea that ToF sensors will be used more extensively by the Galaxy A series might be hopeful but not too outlandish. After all, the Galaxy A80 does have a ToF module even though the phone itself is not cheap, so more models may get this feature next year.

More megapixels for the Galaxy A series

Another interesting possibility highlighted by this rumor is that the Galaxy A81 will have a 64-megapixel main camera, while the Galaxy A91 will employ a 108-megapixel unit. Presumably, these would be none other than the 64MP ISOCELL Bright GW1 and 108MP ISOCELL Bright HMX sensors unveiled this year.

We should stress that this is an early rumor and it may or may not be accurate. Such is the nature of early leaks and rumors, especially since Samsung or any other OEM can change its mind by the time a product is ready for mass production. We’ll keep you posted as soon as we find out more.
