Earlier renders of Galaxy A90 had shown that the phone will be the first Samsung smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera. The phone does not come with Infinity-V or Infinity-U waterdrop notch, nor a hole-punch cutout on the screen. The phone is expected to come with FHD+ resolution, brand new Snapdragon 700 series chipset with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and at least 64GB of internal storage. The new Galaxy A90 or Galaxy R-series will likely ship with Android Pie with One UI on top. The battery capacity could be anywhere between 3,500mAh and 4,000mAh.
