While Samsung already launched a bunch of Galaxy A devices in 2019, it has plans to launch more smartphones in the premium series. The Galaxy A90 was rumored to arrive this year, but the information was nothing concrete. Now, the phone’s name has been listed on Samsung‘s own website for the US market. It will most probably be the highest-priced Galaxy A series phone of the year, and it is expected to feature the New Infinity Display, Snapdragon 710 processor, and a pop-up selfie camera.
With the phone being listed on Samsung’s website alongside the Galaxy S10, it looks like the Galaxy A90 could launch soon. No specifications have been revealed by the listing, though. Earlier this month, the phone was listed on the Samsung UK website as well. It looks like the phone will come with some exclusive gaming content, thanks to the company’s partnership with Gameloft for the Asphalt 9 Legends racing game.
Galaxy A90 Confirmed By Samsung US Website, Will Get Asphalt 9 Freebies
The Galaxy A90 had already surfaced through a lot of leaks, and the phone has now been listed on Samsung US website (first spotted by Samsung-focussed tech publication GalaxyClub), alongside the Galaxy S10 series, and is bound to receive exclusive Asphalt 9 Legends gaming benefits as a gift. These benefits include 50,000 Asphalt 9 credits, ten premium card packs, 250 tokens, and a free Lotus Evora Sport 410 sports car. Both brands claim that they will keep holding contests and offer free exclusive content as well as additional rewards in the future. Buyers of the phone will have to download the game from the Galaxy Store, though, to be eligible to receive free benefits.
Samsung’s partnership with Gameloft for Asphalt 9 Legends, which is a graphically intensive game, points towards the use of a powerful GPU. It is being reported that the phone could be Samsung’s first device with a completely bezel-less screen, thanks to the New Infinity Display and the pop-up selfie camera.
Samsung Galaxy A90 Could Feature Snapdragon 710, In-Screen Fingerprint Reader, Pop-Up Selfie Camera
We had exclusively reported last month that the Galaxy A90 will be launched in India along with the Galaxy A70 and one Android Go-powered entry-level smartphone. The Galaxy A90 will feature a 6.41-inch New Infinity Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The phone will also use an optical in-screen fingerprint reader, similar to that of the Galaxy A50. It could come with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. It is expected to feature a triple-camera or a quad-camera setup, which could include a 3D ToF (Time of Flight) sensor.
The Galaxy A90 will be devoid of any screen notch or a punch-hole-style selfie camera. It will achieve the completely bezel-less screen avatar, all thanks to its pop-up selfie camera, similar to the Galaxy A70. The phone will succeed the Galaxy A9 (2018), and run Android 9 Pie-based Samsung One UI. The Galaxy A90 could be priced as high as INR 50,000 in India, just below the Galaxy S10e, which was launched with a price tag of INR 55,900. The Galaxy A90 could be offered in three colors: Black, Gold, and Silver.
