Samsung has released a bunch of A-series phones this year and is set to crown the pile with the ultimate Galaxy A device. "Devices" is the right word, actually, as there will apparently be two of them. Both are expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 855 and will feature brand new technology.

Samsung has placed more focus on its Galaxy A series over the past ten months or so. The company has used the line as a testing bed for some of its new technology, and devices like the A30, A50, and A70 have come to be regarded as good for value money, which is something that couldn't have been said of older-gen Galaxy A phones. Unsurprisingly, Samsung will be looking to capitalize on that success, as a new report claims that it has two Snapdragon 855-powered Galaxy A phones in the works.

Considering the fact that we've already gotten the A70 and A80, it's no surprise that the devices are going to follow the logical progression of that naming scheme and will be sold as the Galaxy A90. There will be two of them: the SM-A908 and SM-A905.

The SM-A908 will feature a 48 MP + 8 MP + 5 MP rear camera setup and 5G support, while the SM-A905 will sport a 48 MP +12 MP +5 MP rear camera setup and "Tilt OIS" technology. Both will be powered by Qualcomm's flagship Snapdragon 855, and will feature 6.7-inch Super AMOLED displays with in-display fingerprint sensors.

The A90 phones are also expected to sport Samsung's touted 45 W fast charge.
