    Samsung’s upcoming 5G smartphone, the Galaxy A90 5G, has been certified by the Korea National Radio Research Agency (NRRA), bringing it a step closer to its official launch. The NRRA certification follows approvals from the Bluetooth SIG and the Wi-Fi Alliance.

    Galaxy A90 5G launch imminent

    Korea's NRRA has just certified an unannounced Samsung smartphone with model number SM-A908N. It is presumably the Korean variant of the Galaxy A90 5G, Samsung's first non-flagship 5G smartphone. There's also an SM-A908B, which should sell internationally. Both of these variants were certified by the Bluetooth SIG last week with the Galaxy A90 5G moniker.

    The NRRA listing doesn’t reveal much about the specifications of the device. However, previous leaks and rumors suggest the phone to be powered by the flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset with at least 6GB of RAM. The handset features a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display of FHD+ resolution. It may pack a massive 4,500mAh battery with 45W fast charging.

    In the imaging department, the Galaxy A90 5G is rumored to feature a triple rear camera setup with “Tilt OIS” tech. Details about megapixel counts are scanty at the moment. Samsung was previously rumored to launch the Galaxy A90 with a pop-up camera system. However, that particular handset was eventually launched as the Galaxy A80 (review). So it remains to be seen whether the upcoming A90 5G retains the Galaxy A80's not-so-well-tested sliding, rotating camera system.

    There's no word yet on when Samsung plans to take the wraps off the Galaxy A90 5G. Given all these certifications, we may not need to wait too long now. Once it arrives, it will be the most affordable 5G smartphone from Samsung. It may still cost significantly more than the Galaxy A80, though. After all, it will be the most high-end 2019 Galaxy A phone, and 5G support alone would result in a higher price tag.
