Smartphone manufacturers are trying their best to avoid the upper bezel on their devices by experimenting with a variety of solutions like notches, slider mechanisms, and pop-up cameras. The first ever pop-up selfie camera came from Vivo, the Vivo Nex.
Now, it appears like smartphone giant Samsung wants to be part of the trend by making use of a pop-up camera in one of its upcoming devices. The brand already has displays like Infinity-V Display(waterdrop notch), Infinity O Display(punch-hole camera).
Rumors have surfaced online that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A90 will come equipped with the pop-up camera. The front camera would pop-up from the device once the user opens the camera application or any other application which uses the camera. Take a look at the tweet below.
Why do I say that the A90 is perfect? The answer is that the Galaxy A90 will be Samsung's first pop-up front camera phone, so its screen is perfect, there is no Notch, no Hole. pic.twitter.com/j01WWtPzh8

However, it is a bit early for the rumors to start coming out as the 2018 variant of the Samsung Galaxy A9 got unveiled just three months back. The Samsung Galaxy A9 (2018) comes with a large 6.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution of 1080×2220 pixels.
The Samsung Galaxy A9(2018) is powered by Snapdragon 660 SoC coupled with 6/8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded further up to 512GB via a microSD card.
The device gets a Quad-camera setup at the back, featuring a 24MP primary camera with f/1.7 aperture, a 5MP depth sensor with an f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP wide-angle lens with an f/2.4 aperture which is further accompanied by a 10MP (f/2.4) telephoto sensor for 2X optical zoom. Whereas, the front bears a 24MP shooter for selfies and video calling. An improved camera setup would be seen on the Galaxy A90.
On the software front, the handset runs Android 8.1 Oreo with Samsung’s Experience UX layered on top while the newer Galaxy A90 is expected to run Android Pie out of the box.
We hope that the performance and time delay of the pop-up camera to be better than the early generation Vivo Nex devices as it is coming from Samsung this time with quite a while of R&D. More details regarding the Samsung Galaxy A90 will be coming out in the upcoming months. Till then, stay tuned for updates.
