Samsung revealed the Galaxy A90 5G as the cheapest 5G smartphone in South Korea back in September. It is the latest device to feature 5G capability after the flagship Galaxy S10 5G and the Note 10 5G. Samsung has today introduced the A90 5G in China. The smartphone features the powerful Snapdragon 855 SoC and supports the NSA network through external bandwidth.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 5G flaunts a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED full HD+ Infinity-U display with a Infinity-U notch and an in-display fingerprint scanner. The device has arrived in China with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of native storage.
The primary camera is a 48-megapixel unit with an aperture rating of f/2.0, which is paired to a 5-megapixel depth sensor with an aperture rating of f/2.2 along with an 8-megapixel depth sensor with a 12-degree wide-angle field-of-view. The Samsung Galaxy A90 draws power from a 4,500 mAh battery with 25W rapid charging. The device runs on Android 9.0 Pie-based One UI and features face unlock for additional security.
The Samsung Galaxy A90 starts from 4,499 Yuan (~$635). The smartphone is available in two color options, namely Space White and Holographic Black. The rear panel is designed using a splicing scheme last seen on the Huawei P30 Pro. Samsung is calling it their holographic plaid pattern. The design has a gradient finish on the upper half and a solid color on the lower portion.
Pre-sales of the A90 5G will begin in China from Oct. 25 and its shipments will start on Oct. 31. The Samsung Galaxy A90 rivals the iQOO and Xiaomi’s 5G lineup in China.
