Spanky, 27 Apr 2020Why would you want an in-border light sensor? I have one in my current phone and it always dar... moreI mean, on the top of the phone, not on the side or the whole border.
Because of notch becoming smaller and turning into punch holes, for space reasons ambient light and proximity sensor basically got either :
*Reduced to a far too small size (and placed around the camera)...
*Removed and use selfie camera instead...
*Or put under display...
All those 3 transformations cause the sensor to be way less effective and work really poorly.
But having those in the area of both the top border and tiny bezel between the display and the border would allow to get back to the good old, big enough and well working ones.
It would basically be at the same place it always was with bezel and working as well.
That's one of the many negative side effect of Android implementation of notch and punch hole trend that affect other types of front sensor solutions...

No pop-up cameras for me. That just seems like the worse idea ever, for a camera.
I'm looking forward to in-display cameras. Until then, the punch hole camera is the best solution, in my opinion.

Don't forget to mention an Enxynos processor! They after selling they same hardware over and over again
Nice to see other phones with pop up camera, sadly it is yet again a pop up with a single camera, no additional sensors, no 3D facial recognition, no Iris scanner, not even a floodlight...
Being a Galaxy A serie, it probably won't have a Snapdragon, I don't really mind other type of SoC, but Qualcomm have a huge edge when it come to many secondary things other than Raw power, even just AI and other in-chip hardware based algorithms.
Though, with the recent deep hate toward Exynos, they might play the safety card and start using Qualcomm's SoC, who know ?
Give to that phone a SD765G, put in the pop up 3D Facial recognition (at least IR + Dot projector) sensors and floodlight, add in-border ambiant light and proximity sensor, and a 3D Sonic Max indisplay FPS (Samsung being the only one to use Qualcomm's 3D Sonic, there is a tiny chance it could happen), with a flat display design, I instantaneously buy it !
Even if it cost more than it should...
But hey, they are making a different design than usual, that's a step in the right direction !
I bet they will use the Exynos 9610 / 9611 again, or something worse than that...
ponk87, 27 Apr 2020You are not going to get the best snapdragon SoC on a Samsung phone for 400 on a new phone. th... moreWhy do you need monster SoC on a small device in the first place? Sd765 is more than capable to handle everything at full HD. The problem is not the choice of SoC but the lack of demand for those. S10e was compact but the masses went bigger or cheaper, hence no S20e this year.
Anonymous, 27 Apr 2020Not exyno, tell them to put snapdragon 865 You are not going to get the best snapdragon SoC on a Samsung phone for 400 on a new phone. they just need to underclock the 990 to prevent it from overheating and it should run perfectly fine.
joe nodden, 27 Apr 2020What does the size of the phones have to do with them releasing different phones.There is no variety, Samsung has at least 10 A series, and all of them offer the same. With some minor differences
Mike9625, 27 Apr 2020I don't get the point on releasing "different phones" all of them being bigger than 6.5' WTFWhat does the size of the phones have to do with them releasing different phones.

Anonymous, 27 Apr 2020Not exyno, tell them to put snapdragon 865 Samsung produces their own Exynos SoCs, so it would save them money to use that on a budget phone. Snapdragon would increase the costs.
At $400, even a Exynos 990 phone would be mega-seller. They just need to make sure it looks like a modern phone, and has a large enough battery.
This is probably Galaxy A61. I suspect A81 will use a similar mechanism like that of the A80 this year as well.
