It seems possible that Samsung will resurrect the Galaxy R brand-name to include what many believed was going to be the Samsung Galaxy A90. According to a well-known industry leaker, the Samsung model SM-A90X will likely be part of a new Galaxy R series that would feature premium midrange smartphones.

As if Samsung’s full range and back catalog of smartphones wasn’t confusing enough already, it looks like the Galaxy R series will be making a reappearance. The original Samsung Galaxy R was released in 2011 but was discontinued due to hardware problems, with the South Korean manufacturer turning its focus onto the hugely successful S series.

However, leaker Steve H. McFly (OnLeaks) claims that the Samsung SM-A90X is more likely going to be part of a revamped Galaxy R series of devices rather than the previously speculated Galaxy A90. The noted tipster also shared some other details, including that there are apparently two Galaxy R-series smartphones already in development.

As for potential hardware design and specifications, the Samsung Galaxy R series could feature “huge displays”, a triple camera setup, and one of them (if not both) should offer 5G connectivity. McFly signed off the tweet with a considerably interesting tidbit that stated one of the R-series smartphones would sport: “a very unique camera feature”. This could point to the under-display camera technology that Samsung has been rumored to have been working on for a long time now or a completely new camera setup that hasn’t been touched upon yet.
