Samsung A-Series 5G smartphone: Galaxy A90 5G

With multiple smartphone manufacturers that launched expensive high-end 5G smartphones this year, it was a matter of time before 5G phones came up with more reasonable prices. Samsung is among the first companies to introduce a 5G-enabled smartphone that promises not to break the bank. In addition to faster network support, the Samsung A90 offers a lot of first-class features, including advanced SoC and premium image capabilities.

Equipped with a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 and a rain drop selfie camera module, the Galaxy A90 5G is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 flagship SoC, accompanied by 6 or 8 GB of LPDDRX and 128 GB of NAND flash storage (expandable using a microSD card). Like other Qualcomm-based 5G smartphones, the Galaxy A90 5G uses the Qualcomm X50 modem. This is the same SoC and modem that powers Samsung’s Galaxy S10 5G phone, so from the point of view of performance and connectivity, the Galaxy A90 5G promises to behave like the high-end model.

Imaging capabilities of the Galaxy A90 5G include a 48 MP main camera, an 8 MP ultrawide lens, and a 5 MP depth sensor. Meanwhile, a 32 MP module is used for selfies.

One of the interesting selling points of the Galaxy A90 5G is support for Samsung’s DeX platform that enables desktop-like experience on Android-based devices (e.g., open up multiple windows, re-size windows, drag and drop content, etc.) when they connected to a PC display or a TV. Of course, proper DeX experience will require an external keyboard and mouse.

Other notable features of Samsung’s Galaxy A90 5G are a 4,500 mAh battery, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB 2.0 Type-C port for data and charging, stereo speakers, Dolby Atmos support for USB-C headsets, a fingerprint reader, and facial recognition.

Samsung’s Galaxy A90 5G will be released in black and white in South Korea on September 4. Exact price is unknown, but one of the rumours suggests that it will be below $1000. The launch in other countries will likely follow shortly as operators will certainly be interested in starting sales of a reasonably priced 5G handset in time for the holiday season.
