Samsung Galaxy A90 rumored to be firm's first phone with a pop-up camera

Samsung logoA tweet from tipster Ice Universe states that Samsung is working on a new mid-range phone that won't have a notch or a punch-hole in order to keep its thin bezels. Instead, the Samsung Galaxy A90 will use a mechanical pop-up camera similar to the one first seen on the Vivo NEX S. The Galaxy A90 is expected to eventually be a replacement for the Galaxy A9 (2018) (see image at the top of this article), and rumored specs call for a device with 6GB to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

While a pop-up camera does help to make the display pristine, it does have some potential issues. Some worry about the durability of the motorized drive that pushes the camera up and back down again. And a phone with a pop-up camera is most likely not going to have an IP rating for protection from dust and water. The aforementioned Vivo NEX S does not sport an IP rating, and neither does the Galaxy A9 (although for different reasons).

Speaking of the Galaxy A9 (2018), which was just released last November, this is the first smartphone to come with a quad-camera setup on back, and it is equipped with a 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display. Throw in plenty of memory and storage, and a large 3800mAh battery, and you'll see why there is no reason for Sammy to replace this model anytime soon.

Samsung may be working on a pop-up camera for the Galaxy A90, but this year is all about the punch-hole. The Galaxy A8s (aka Galaxy A9 Pro for the international market) was the company's first handset to feature a punch-hole selfie camera, and the trend will continue with the upcoming flagship Samsung Galaxy S10 line.
