Samsung’s first smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera appears in leaked renders

On: April 27, 2020

Samsung is known for pushing the envelope when it comes to innovation and technology. The company has adopted a number of notch designs, including the Infinity-V and Infinity-U notches, and was one of the first to launch a phone with a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. It’s also used more complicated mechanisms like a rotating triple camera module, which we saw on the Galaxy A80. However, there’s one popular design element that the brand hasn’t adopted yet, which is the elevating selfie camera module. At least until now. Reliable tipster OnLeaks has released several CAD-based renders of an upcoming Samsung mid-range smartphone with a pop-selfie camera and triple rear cameras.

As you can see in the render above, the upcoming Samsung smartphone seems to be sporting a mid-range design. We can spot a single elevating camera module in the top left corner. The rear panel houses an elongated vertical camera island housing three lenses and the LED flash. We can also see the oval fingerprint scanner towards the center on the back panel. The handset seems to be flaunting a glossy paint job with curved edges on the back. We can expect the material to be glasstic, which is a hybrid between plastic and glass. Other design elements revealed by the renders include physical volume and power button on the right, USB Type-C with speaker grille on the bottom and what looks like an IR sensor on the top edge. The publication claims that the phone will measure 160.9mm x 77mm x 9.2mm.

According to the report, the smartphone will come with a 6.5-inche display with no notch and slightly thicker chin. There seems to be no headphone jack on the smartphone. Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the phone including the name, launch date and other specifications. We can expect the brand the launch the device once the global lockdown lifts, so stay tuned.
