If recent reports are believed, Samsung is now willing to spend a bit more on hardware for its premium mid-range smartphones in a bid to gain more market share. Now the next addition to the series has something different - triple cameras and an in-display fingerprint scanner.
This would be Samsung's second online exclusive smartphone in two months.
According to the report, the company is looking to introduce triple-camera and in-display fingerprint sensor to Galaxy A (2019) lineup before these features are fully adopted for the company's flagship Galaxy S-series smartphone.
As we mentioned above, there's no indication of when this Galaxy A smartphone might be coming, but it would be a little odd if Samsung premiered these premium features on its mid-range smartphones before its flagships.

While it might not be the ultrasonic fingerprint scanner behind the glass, like on the upcoming Galaxy S10, the Galaxy A from 2019 will feature an optical sensor. We're not sure if the Galaxy A 2019 series will be rocking a telephoto lens or the ability to snap images with 3x optical zoom but we will have to find out when more reports, leaks and rumours come through.
One of the features they're said to be considering is the "super-wide angle" triple-camera system that's expected to be present on the Galaxy S10 as well.
Earlier this month, the company launched Galaxy On6 online, which was its first "Infinity Display" mid-segment smartphone to be sold exclusively on an e-commerce platform.
