Samsung announced a surprising detail about its upcoming mid-range smartphone Galaxy A90. According to Samsung, the Galaxy A90 will have support for 5G. After the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy Note 10 5G, it looks like Samsung next smartphone is ready to have 5G, which would make the company’s first 5G smartphone in the budget-friendly category. This news comes from the reputable leaker Evan Blass, who also tweet about it multiple times including static and video adverts seemingly all linked back to the Galaxy A90 5G. We don’t know how Evan had access to these images or videos that seem very much of Samsung’s style but it would be fairly easy to suggest that these could be true.
Samsung Galaxy A90 looks very similar to other smartphones from the A-series. But that doesn’t mean any rear camera panel that moves and flips, unlike the Galaxy A80. Instead, there seems to be a three-camera rear array, although we don’t know what specs these snappers pack at this moment. One of the videos Evan uploaded suggests that the phone will feature a wide-angle lens for the rear camera. There is no fingerprint sensor for the phone though. Instead, it has in-screen technology. There is also a standard tear-drop notch to house the front camera. All in all, it seems very similar to what the A series has offered so far- except for the 5G which could be the selling point for this phone.
So far, the 5G is available only to the premium smartphones but the Galaxy A series tends to be more inexpensive. This could also mean that A90 will be the first 5G smartphone in the budget category. The Galaxy A90 is still in the manufacturing process and we don’t know the release date. Samsung has just launched Galaxy Note 10 and the next release could be of foldable, so we can assume that A90 won’t be launching any soon. The other key feature for this smartphone will be the fast charging. With 25W and 45W fast charging now added to the equation, it seems you’ll be able to juice these phones up very quickly too. The Note 10 Plus was the first Samsung phone to hit that 45W mark, but it won’t be the last.
