Much anticipated and rumoured Samsung’s latest 5G phone, the Galaxy A90 5G is now official. It will be the first Galaxy A-series smartphone to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile platform. Samsung is bidding on the Qualcomm’s flagship chipset in order to enable support for 5G mobile networks.
The Samsung Galaxy A series is a line of mid-range smartphones manufactured by Samsung Electronics. The first model in the series, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, was released on September 2014.
It is speculated that the Galaxy A90 5G will sport a tri-camera setup with 48-megapixel 5-megapixel 8-megapixel sensors at the back, a 32-megapixel front camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage. The phone will go on sale starting September 4 in Korea. So far there is no word on its price just yet.

5G is, of course, going to make all the difference from now on, and the specs put the A90 5G right up against reasonably priced phones like the Redmi K20 Pro in India, and it’s hard to judge how competitive it’ll be without release information for various markets. However, 5G isn’t yet a factor in India as yet and hence Indian customers might have to wait for a while to get their hands on this latest Samsung piece. All we know for now is that the Galaxy A90 5G is coming out in South Korea tomorrow and Samsung hasn’t announced pricing details.
