The Samsung Galaxy A90 has leaked out in a live photo for the first ahead of its impending official launch. The photo shows that leaks and renders to date have been pretty accurate, but there are notable differences.

With Samsung’s Galaxy A90 on the cusp of being officially unveiled, it has been leaked out in its first live photo. What it reveals is that, as rumored, it will incorporate a new Infinity display that doesn’t feature any notches or cut outs but will instead adopt a sliding mechanism. A key difference from most sliders we’ve seen so far is that the rear cameras also flip around to become the selfie cameras.

This is a design detail that has previously surfaced in 3D renders of the device, but there are some notable differences between the renders and the real thing. The slider mechanism is this photo is squared off, rather than curved while the triple camera arrangement doesn’t appear to include a flash. While this can be accomplished with the display when in selfie-mode, it isn’t clear whether there is a flash built into the rear of the device for illumination when taking regular photos.

As for its processor, early rumors have pointed to the use of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 7150, which would be the purported successor to the Snapdragon 710. However, Qualcomm hasn’t made official reference to this chip, but instead only just announced that the Snapdragon 710 will be succeeded by the new Snapdragon 730. It is possible then, that the Galaxy A90 could be the first smartphone to ship with Qualcomm's next-gen mid-range silicon.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
