Samsung Galaxy A90 5G, technical sheet of characteristics and price

26 mayo, 2021

Although the rumors about the Samsung Galaxy A90 began months ago, it was yesterday when it suffered a leak that, in addition to exposing practically all its secrets, pointed to a imminent launch by the company South Korean. And so it has been, we already have among us the new member of the Galaxy A family.

Finally, the Galaxy A90 5G does not have a sliding and rotating camera, as was speculated long ago, but it is the first mid-range model to have 5G connectivity, as the name suggests, and the first to include support for Samsung DeX.

This is how Samsung makes money: the secret is on the IPHONE

Features bordering on the high-end

Despite many rumors to the contrary, the new Samsung Galaxy A90 5G looks similar to other Galaxy A models, such as the Galaxy A50s, with a triple vertically arranged rear camera on the left and a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a drop-shaped notch. This screen also offers FullHD + resolution (2,400 x 1,080 pixels) and hides the fingerprint reader integrated in it.

Samsung has a plan to win the mid-range and it is not to be the cheapest

On the back, we find a design with square patterns interrupted only by the presence, as we said, of the main camera. This is composed of a 48 megapixel main sensor with f / 2.0 aperture, a 5-megapixel sensor with f / 2.2 aperture responsible for achieving the bokeh effect and a third 8-megapixel sensor with f / 2.2 aperture and wide angle.

We are, therefore, before the same photographic team that mounted the Galaxy A50s, with whom it also shares the front camera, which has a single 32-megapixel sensor with f / 2.0 aperture. Where we do find differences is in the battery of the new Galaxy A90 5G, which has a capacity of 4,500 mAh and is supports 25W fast charge.

The expansion of 5G and Samsung DeX

But if there is something that distinguishes the latest Samsung model from the rest of the Galaxy A family terminals, it is 5G connectivity (NSA Sub6), something that it achieves thanks to the Qualcomm X50 modem that accompanies the Snapdragon 855 processor (although it could reach other markets with Exynos and Samsung’s 5G modem).

This feature makes the Galaxy A90 5G the Samsung’s third terminal compatible with 5G networks, after the Galaxy S10 + 5G and the Galaxy Note 10+ 5G, and what is more important still: the first “mid-range” model to have this feature.

Furthermore, the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G has also become the first member of the Galaxy A family to comes with support for Samsung DeX. In this way, and as we do with the Note 10, it is possible to connect it to a computer to work with it more comfortably.

Versions and prices of the Samsung Galaxy A90 5G
