    Galaxy A90 5G benchmarked with Snapdragon 855, 6GB RAM

    A benchmark entry for the Galaxy A90 5G on Geekbench is confirming earlier rumors that the device would be powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC. Samsung has never used a flagship chipset for a mid-range device before, but with 5G connectivity possible only on flagship chips like the Snapdragon 855 and Exynos 9820 at this time, it isn't very surprising that the A90 5G will come with top-of-the-line silicon under the hood.

    What's slightly odd, however, is that the Galaxy A90 5G has only 6GB of RAM while the recently released Galaxy A80 comes with 8GB of RAM. It's possible the A90 will come in both 6GB and 8GB RAM variants — just the presence of 5G connectivity would make the A90 quite the costly device, and offering options for storage and RAM would allow Samsung to keep the retail prices a bit more palatable.

    After all, the A90 will also have some other impressive specs, like a 4,500 mAh battery and “exclusive tilt OS” technology, all of which are likely to put the A90 dangerously close to flagship smartphones on the price spectrum. Just what the actual pricing will be is something only time will tell. The same goes for a release date, which will probably be sometime after the Galaxy Note 10 goes official in early August.
