Galaxy M90 rumored to be in the works as online-only Galaxy A90 variant
The Galaxy A90 is yet to go official, but there’s already a rumor floating on the internet about Samsung working on a Galaxy M90. The M90 is said to be similar to the Galaxy A90 and would be only be available for sale online like other Galaxy M series phones. Our sources don’t have any word on a Galaxy M90 being developed, and since the M series is currently competing in the sub-$300 market, an M90 wouldn’t make a lot of sense considering the A90 is likely to be priced near the $700 mark if we go by the Galaxy A80’s 649 euros price tag.
The M90, bearing model number SM-M905F, is reported to launch in India sometime in November. There’s no word on specs, but if the A90’s rumored specs are anything to go by, we could see the M90 sport a Snapdragon 855 under the hood. However, it’s more likely that Samsung will opt for a mid-range chip, as the Galaxy M90 probably won’t have 5G support. The A90 has a 5G model, which is perhaps the only reason it is powered by the Snapdragon 855 and not something like the Snapdragon 730G that powers the Galaxy A80.
Pricing would also be a key factor that decides if the M90 is exactly the same as the Galaxy A90 in other aspects. The Galaxy M40, which is based on the Galaxy A60, isn’t priced as attractively as other Galaxy M series phones in India, and with the Galaxy A80 also quite expensive and competing against devices like the OnePlus 7 Pro, we’re not sure how much interest the Galaxy M90 will garner if its price tag breaks the $600 barrier.
