Galaxy A90 5G will not receive monthly security updates


Last updated: September 6th, 2019 at 09:47 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A90 5G is the first non-flagship 5G smartphone from Samsung. That being said, it’s not exactly cheap either. It’s at the top end of Samsung’s Galaxy A series. If you thought that this meant it would receive monthly security updates, think again.

Samsung has made it clear from the get-go that the Galaxy A90 5G is not going to receive monthly security updates. It has been put on the quarterly schedule so owners can expect to receive one update every three months.

Galaxy A90 5G will only get a new security patch every quarter

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A90 5G a few weeks ago. It’s also showcasing the device at the ongoing IFA 2019 trade show in Berlin. The Galaxy A90 5G has been released in South Korea first and it will soon make its way to markets across Europe.

It’s a proper premium device with a glass sandwich build and noteworthy specs. The Galaxy A90 5G touts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with a Snapdragon x50 5G modem. It’s available with 6GB and 8GB of RAM with 128GB internal storage. There’s also a triple-camera system at the back.

The Galaxy A90 5G costs 749 euro so it’s not exactly cheap. That was to be expected, but those who are looking for a lower entry cost to experience 5G will appreciate it. It certainly beats having to pay more than 1,000 euro for a compatible device.

Customers should be mindful of the fact that Samsung has put the Galaxy A90 5G on the quarterly update schedule from the outset. This isn’t the only device to get this treatment. Many other recent Galaxy A handsets are on the quarterly schedule as well.

The Galaxy A90 5G is readily available for purchase in South Korea. It will be released in select European markets next month.
