Samsung Galaxy A90 5G Hands-on
Big screen and new geometric design
It sports a huge 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution, and that screen looks gorgeous. It comes with a tiny, waterdrop shaped notch, which accommodates a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Probably most impressive, however, is the massive 4,500 mAh battery inside. When you are connected to 5G the battery drain is much higher, but this large battery should handle it well. It also supports 25 watt fast charging with the fast-charge adapter coming included in the box with the phone.
Specs and Camera
As far as the specs go, Samsung has teamed up with Qualcomm to include the Snapdragon 855 chipset while the X50 5G modem supports the 5G connectivity. The phone also comes in either 6GB or 8GB RAM, and it features 128 gigs of expandable storage.
On the backside, there's a triple-camera setup:
- 48-megapixel main sensor
- 5-megapixel depth sensor
- 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera
This is also the first Galaxy A series phone that includes the new Samsung DeX, so you can easily expand your phone's display to a PC or TV and even mirror the phone, and reply to notifications and messages.
The Galaxy A90 5G is trying to appeal to a slightly different audience that can't afford to purchase a flagship, but still wants those 5G speeds. The phone is coming to Europe in October for a price of 750 euro, while a US launch is not impossible, but Samsung has refused to comment on that yet. What do you think about this new, more affordable 5G phone?
