Samsung A90 mid-range phone could go notchless
As first spotted by GalaxyClub, Samsung has updated their Galaxy A site page revealing telltale details about the upcoming A90 smartphone’s design, a couple weeks before its official release.
Galaxy smartphone-and-tablet-focused blog GalaxyClub discovered on Thursday that Samsung’s Galaxy A website page had been updated with feature descriptions that do not fit any A model on the market right now; the best explanation is that these discrepancies can be accounted for with the upcoming model, the A90, whose launch is slated for Apr. 10.
It has been known that the model will top the mid-range A line, but what the latest update suggests is that it will feature an AMOLED “Notchless Infinity Screen” described as “all screen and no bezel.” This supports notable tech leaker Ice Universe’s claim that was made back in February that “there is no notch, there is no hole.” The tweeter also predicted that the A90 will be the company’s first phone with a pop-up front camera—which would explain how they managed to omit any and all bezels.
Why do I say that the A90 is perfect? The answer is that the Galaxy A90 will be Samsung's first pop-up front camera phone, so its screen is perfect, there is no Notch, no Hole. pic.twitter.com/j01WWtPzh8FEATURED STORIES

Back in 2018 at the Samsung Developer Conference, the company unveiled four sketches of potential upcoming smartphone display designs. Samsung fans have seen the Infinity O screen design materialize on the A8S and Galaxy S10, the Infinity U has made its way to the A30 and A50 and the Infinity V display is featured on the A20. The only one that remains unaccounted for is the New Infinity Display which has no visible notch whatsoever.
Considering that Samsung promises that the A90 will come with “all screen and no bezel,” this model could finally make the fourth display format a reality.
