Here's a first look at the Samsung Galaxy A91 — or is it the Galaxy S10 Lite?
We’ve already seen the 5G-powered Samsung Galaxy A90, but now it looks like we need to get ready for a Samsung Galaxy A91. Renders just leaked for the device from reliable source @OnLeaks (via 91Mobiles). As the name suggests, this would be an iterative upgrade over the A90 — at least theoretically.
Unfortunately, we are very confused about what, exactly, this device even is. The name suggests its an iterative upgrade over the A90, but it looks almost identical to the Samsung Galaxy S11 renders we’ve already seen from @OnLeaks. What’s more, we’ve heard plenty of rumors to suggest that the Samsung Galaxy A91 will get branded as a Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite in certain areas of the world.
What do you do with a phone that looks like an unreleased flagship, has a name that harkens to a region-exclusive 5G device, and could also potentially be a tweak of a 2019 flagship? My head is spinning just thinking about it.
Regardless, check out the renders in both photo and video form below.
Samsung Galaxy A91 renders
As before, the Samsung Galaxy A91 looks incredibly similar to the Galaxy S11 renders we’ve already seen. The camera module on the back of the device is nearly identical to the one on the S11 series and the centered punch-hole camera on the front is lifted right from the Galaxy Note 10 (and will also likely be on the S11 series). In fact, from what we can tell here, the Samsung Galaxy A91 looks very far removed from the Galaxy A90 that we’re wondering why it would even have the A91 name.
That, of course, brings us back to the Galaxy S10 Lite idea. Samsung essentially confirmed that such a device exists and all rumors point to the A91 and the S10 Lite being the same device. Could Samsung really push out this device with the S10 name when it looks so much like what we expect the S11 to look like?
