Samsung has just unveiled the Galaxy A90 5G, the company’s very first mid-range smartphone that comes with 5G connectivity.
The A90 5G is equipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 5G chip and can be ordered with either 6GB or 8GB RAM. The device is only offered with 128GB internal storage, but a microSD card with up to 512GB can be used on the 6GB version.
The device sports a triple-camera configuration with a main 48MP F2.0 sensor offered alongside a depth sensor with 5MP resolution and F2.2 and an ultra-wide lens with 8MP and F2.2. The selfie camera features 32 megapixels and F2.0.
At 206 grams, this isn’t necessarily the lightest smartphone around, but given it features a 6.7-inch screen, it’s clearly a trade-off that many will be willing to make.
Going on sale this week
In terms of battery life, the device features a 4,500 mAh unit and 25W Super Fast Charging. A fingerprint sensor is embedded into the glass and face recognition is offered as well.
“The Galaxy A90 5G also takes your mobile gaming experience to the next level. With 5G connectivity, you can enjoy live gaming without lags and its Game Booster will always be running at most optimum state when you are in the heat of the battle,” Samsung says in a typical press realeasy statement.
The smartphone will go on sale in South Korea on September 4 and will then expand to other markets in the coming months, with pricing details for each country to be announced at launch. Samsung will release two different color options, black and white, paired with “a unique geometric pattern on the black glass,” as the company itself explains.
