Snapdragon 855-powered Galaxy A90 5G moves closer to official launch


Last updated: August 1st, 2019 at 14:39 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy A90 5G has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, bringing Samsung’s first non-flagship 5G smartphone a step closer to its official launch. Okay, so the A90 5G may have some flagship-grade hardware, like a Snapdragon 855 chipset and blazing fast network speeds, but it will still remain in a lower segment than Samsung’s actual flagship lineups.

In fact, we’re not sure Samsung would even use the Snapdragon 855 if it weren’t for the fact that there’s no mid-range Snapdragon or Exynos chip that supports 5G connectivity yet. Other specs of the Galaxy A90 are expected to be pretty impressive as well, like a 4,500 mAh battery and something called “tilt OIS” on a triple-camera setup, but all of it will simply make it the most high-end Galaxy A series phone, likely with a price tag that’s as hard to stomach as the Galaxy A80’s.

There’s no telling when Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy A90 5G. The company will be busy with the Galaxy Tab S6, Galaxy Note 10, and the Galaxy Fold over the next few weeks, so it may be a while before we get to hear about the device from the horse’s mouth, especially if Samsung wants to hold a live event for the Galaxy A90 launch similar to the events it held for the Galaxy A80 earlier this year and the Galaxy A9 (2018) last year.
