Galaxy A90 5G to release soon, clears Wi-Fi Alliance

Samsung Galaxy A90 5G has cleared the Wi-Fi Interoperability test and should hit the shelves in the next couple of months. The A90 — model number SM-A908B — has been cleared by Wi-Fi with certificate number WFA90939.

The Wi-Fi clearance is usually one of the last hurdles of any smartphone, meaning that the A90 5G could see the light of day pretty soon. We speculate the phone to release anytime between the end of August and mid-September.

The device will be released in Europe as A908B, while it’ll be branded as A908N in South Korea.

Despite not being a conventional S-Series flagship, the A90 gets to be recognized as one of Samsung’s most powerful smartphones. The company doesn’t use flagship specs on non-S-Series devices, but that could be a thing of the past with the launch of A90 5G.

According to rumors, the phone could come with a 6.70-inch touchscreen with an FHD+  resolution of 1080×2240 pixels, Snapdragon 855, 6GB of RAM, 48+8+5 primary camera, 4580 mAh battery, and of course 5G support. The FHD+ res is nothing to be sniffed at if the price warrants that, and FYI, even the standard (non-Plus) Galaxy Note 10 is said to be powered by FHD+ res only. A note 10 with a non-Quad HD display, can you imagine?

Famous benchmarking website, GeekBench, has already taken the phone for a spin. The result was impressive, to say the least, with the device recording 3458 and 10852 single and multiple-core scores, respectively.

The phone will come with Android Pie out of the box like the recent Samsung flagships and will get an update to Android Q in due time, probably right after the Galaxy S10 series.
