Samsung introduces its new mid-range 5G smartphone
3rd Sep 2019
Samsung has confirmed that it's 3rd 5G smartphone to be released will be the Galaxy A90 5G. This will be the first mid-range handset that we will see on the 5G market.
After the release of the Galaxy S10 5G and Galaxy Note 5G - both top-of-the-range smartphones - it's great to see Samsung making 5G connectivity accessible to a wider audience.
No official price tag for the Galaxy A90 has been released as of yet, the handset is being launched in Korea tomorrow (4th September, 2019), and is expected to cost around 900,000 KRW (£610), which is a significantly lower price tag than the Galaxy S10 5G (£1,099).
The mid-range market has definitely shifted upwards in recent years, with smartphone specifications constantly advancing, the price tags follow suit. So, the Galaxy A90 5G will most likely be the most expensive mid-range handset on the market - but boasting a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 (the latest chipset found in many current Android flagships) and a 6.7-inch FHD+ (1,080 x 2,400) AMOLED display, can we really complain?
What other features can we look out for?
It has also been confirmed that the A90 5G will include a triple-camera array - a 48MP primary camera with two dedicated depth-of-field tricks and ultra wide shots.
Not just this, but the A90 5G is also packing a bunch of AI tools, a 32-MP front-facing camera and selfie improving software housed in the small notch at the front.
Samsung is also promising some sort of game boosting mode for the new A90 5G - 6GB or 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and a microSD card slot, a 4,500mAh battery with 25W Super Fast Charging, on-screen fingerprint scanner, face recognition, and compatibility with the brand's DeX mode.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G will be available from Wednesday 4th September 2019, following its launch in Korea, expanding to additional markets afterwards.
