While all eyes are on the Galaxy Note 9, Samsung is also said to be gearing up to launch a new Galaxy A smartphone. This series offers Samsung’s mid-range devices with premium features. A new report now suggests that the next Galaxy A device will come with features that are yet to be seen on Samsung’s flagship smartphones.

According to Korea’s ETNews, the Samsung Galaxy A (2019) will come with features like triple-camera setup at the back, and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Interestingly, both these features are widely expected to debut on next year’s Samsung Galaxy S10+.

In fact, the report adds that the Galaxy A (2019) smartphone will also feature the same rumored triple-camera setup – one lens with variable aperture, one super-wide angle lens, and one telephoto lens. A triple-camera setup was first successfully introduced on the Huawei P20 Pro. An in-display sensor, on the other hand, was first introduced by Vivo on its X21 smartphone.

It comes across as a tad surprising that Samsung is working on the same set of features that will be introduced on a flagship and mid-range device. But the report adds that this is likely to be a part of Samsung’s push to increase sales of its premium mid-range devices.

The report quotes an industry source as saying, “Since the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco, Samsung has been cautious about adopting new technologies or parts from new suppliers. But it seems to be changing its strategic direction in order to further strengthen competitiveness of its budget phones.”
