We do must surprise about pricing although, because the Galaxy A80 launched at 649 euros (~$737), and it packed an higher mid-range Snapdragon 730 chipset. It’s affordable to imagine this new cellphone could be barely dearer, given its reported identify (A90 vs A80) and better finish chipset.

Samsung may additionally must maintain the Galaxy S10e in thoughts, because it’s the most cost effective Snapdragon 855 cellphone in its line-up proper now, with a launch price of $749.
