Galaxy A90 5G finally breaks cover in latest leak


Last updated: August 30th, 2019 at 18:44 UTC+02:00

We first reported two months ago that there’s a new Galaxy A series device in the pipeline. The Galaxy A90 will be Samsung’s first non-flagship 5G smartphone with high-end specs. Samsung hasn’t said anything about such a device as yet.

There has been a lot of circumstantial evidence lately about this device but it has finally broken cover in a new leak out. We can see the Galaxy A90 5G in what appears to be promotional material for the device. As expected, the design isn’t all that different compared to the existing Galaxy A series.

Latest leak finally shows off the Galaxy A90 5G

From what we know so far, the Galaxy A90 bears model number SM-A908N and will work on 5G networks. It will most likely feature a triple camera system with a 48-megapixel primary sensor hooked up to an 8-megapixel ultra-wide and 5-megapixel depth sensor. The camera system will be mounted on a sliding and rotating contraption like the Galaxy A80. There has also been some talk about an “exclusive tilt OIS” technology.

The device was recently benchmarked with the Snapdragon 855 chipset. Yes, the Galaxy A90 gets a flagship chipset, largely out of the necessity of enabling 5G support. It will likely be offered in both 6GB and 8GB RAM options. All of this will be backed up with a chunky 4,500mAh battery which is expected to support 45W fast charging.

As the Galaxy A90 5G has picked up some requisite certifications in recent weeks, we can expect the device to be launched in the not too distant future. We also hear that it’s going to be made official sooner rather than later. It will be offered in markets where 5G networks have gone live.
