Samsung has unveiled the first 5G phone in its mid-range Galaxy A series just a few weeks after launching the flagship Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy Note 10 5G devices. In a statement, Samsung said the new Galaxy A90 5G will offer future-proof connectivity at a more affordable price that will be officially announced when the handset is launched in South Korea on 04 September, before expanding to additional markets thereafter. The company did reveal that the handset comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset together with a 6.7-inch FHD+ (1,080 x 2,400) Amoled display.
The A90 5G will also feature a triple-camera array on the back, with a 48MP primary camera alongside depth-of-field and ultra-wide lenses, as well as a 32MP front-facing camera. All come with a range of AI capabilities such as Super Steady, Scene Optimiser and Flaw Detector to improve photos on-the-go. Additional features include 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a 4,500 mAh battery with 25W Super-Fast Charging, on-screen fingerprint scanner, face recognition as well as a dedicated Game Booster mode.
It’s also the first device in the A series to support DeX, Samsung’s ‘Desktop Experience’ software for mirroring the phone’s screen and apps on a PC or TV.
