Galaxy A90 enhances the concept of a retractable camera by adding another mechanism that also allows front-to-rear rotation, eliminating the need for dedicated front and rear cameras on the phone.
The design is illustrated with computer renders, showing the advantages and disadvantages of this concept.
Starting with the drawbacks, the Samsung Galaxy A90 is likely to lack the technology to unlock the screen by facial recognition. Another drawback, the two mechanisms for lifting and rotating the camera may fail over time. And space constraints for the camera module might be a problem, causing some compromises on the image quality side.
From the information gathered so far, we find out that the Samsung Galaxy A90 comes equipped with a 6.7-inch screen. This is OLED, includes a fingerprint sensor and uses a 2400 x 1080 pixel resolution.
The Galaxy A90 will be powered by the Snapdragon 7150 SoC chipset (successor to Snapdragon 710/712).
Returning to the camera, it would use a three-sensor optical configuration, 48MP (f / 2.0 lens), 8MP (wide lens f / 2.4) and depth sensor for Depth-of-Filed effects. The rotating camera can also be used for self-picture and video calls.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 will be delivered in a 2219-gramcase, with dimensions of 76.5×165.0x9.0mm. It will accommodate a 3.700 mAh battery and wireless charging mode with fast charging up to 25W.
