Samsung Galaxy A90 5G with Snapdragon 855 SoC, 48MP Triple Camera Setup Launched: Price, Features


Samsung has added a new device to its 5G smartphone portfolio today – the Galaxy A90 5G. This new smartphone has launched in Korea, and it will go on sale in the country starting tomorrow. The brand hasn’t announced the price of the Galaxy A90 5G, nor has it revealed details regarding the smartphone’s availability in markets outside Korea. Samsung has, however, unveiled the specifications of the device. Let us check them out.

Samsung Galaxy A90 5G Specifications

The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution. The display has a U-shaped notch at the top, which Samsung calls Infinity-U Display. There is an in-display fingerprint scanner as well. Currently, there is no information regarding the display protection, but considering that the A90 5G is an upper mid-range smartphone, it will most probably come with Corning Gorilla 3 or above.

Powering the Galaxy A90 5G is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. And this chipset was the only option Samsung had, as its Exynos chipset don’t support 5G connectivity yet. Anyway, the Snapdragon 855, as you might know, features eight Kryo 485 cores and Adreno 640 GPU. According to the specifications sheet posted on Samsung Korea’s website, the A90 5G has 8GB of RAM. And it will be available in two storage options – 64GB and 128GB. There are no surprises when it comes to software – there is Android 9 Pie with One UI customization.

At the rear, there are three cameras – a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide unit, and a 5MP depth sensor. This is the same camera setup that is in the Galaxy M40 and a few other Samsung smartphones. Samsung hasn’t revealed details regarding the video recording capabilities of the rear cameras, but considering that the A90 5G has Snapdragon 855 SoC, the cameras will most probably feature 4K video recording. At the front, the A90 5G has a 32MP camera with f/2.0 aperture.

The battery is a 4500mAh unit. And as it was leaked earlier, the A90 5G supports 25W Super Fast Charging that works over USB Power Delivery protocol. As I’ve mentioned above, the smartphone supports 5G connectivity, making it among the very few smartphones to offer the feature. The 5G connectivity not only provides significantly faster data transfer speeds compared to the 4G, but it also has lower lag, which, in theory, should offer improved gaming experience among other benefits. Other connectivity options include dual-band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v5.0, and USB Type-C port. Unfortunately, there is no 3.5mm audio jack.
