Samsung is preparing a new smartphone based on Snapdragon 855.
The South Korean company Samsung is preparing a budget flagship smartphone, which will be released in this calendar year.
The model will be built on the Snapdragon processor 855.
Chinese insider under the nickname TechstarGod said only that “the cost of the smartphone will be lower than the Samsung series S10”. We can assume that we are talking about gadget Galaxy A90. According to rumors, this smartphone will become the top-end model of the renewed A-series.
Unfortunately, at the moment, no more information about the smartphone. Still, it was reported that Samsung was obligated to provide six mobile phones Snapdragon 855, including the Galaxy S10, S10 Galaxy +, Galaxy S10e, S10 Galaxy with support for 5G, Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Note 10. But with a new phone a mystery number is now increased to seven.
The cost of the gadgets Samsung Galaxy series S10 this year starts at $749 for Galaxy S10e, which means that the upcoming flagship with the same processor should cost less and not have some new features, like ultrasonic fingerprint sensor on the display, triple rear camera or the display from edge to edge.
Since Galaxy S10e already compromise on some aspects, this cheaper Samsung flagship with Snapdragon 855 will be weakened even more. For example. he may not receive AMOLED display, which is in series S10. It’s possible that referred to a cheap flagship of Samsung can include a physical fingerprint sensor, the same as on the S10e.
At the moment, these details are just speculation and rumors, so it’s best to treat them with a grain of salt. But idea Samsung to launch flagship budget with a powerful processor Snapdragon 855 should definitely change the situation in the flagship segment, and to help the Koreans to compete with the OnePlus.
