It has a similar 6.7-inch Super AMOLED display as the Galaxy A80 but comes with a small U-shaped cutout at the top. Housed within the cutout is a 32MP selfie camera with an f/2.0 aperture.
At the back of the phone is a triple camera setup which comprises a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a 5MP depth sensor. The phone will be available with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage.

The Galaxy A90 5G will go on sale in Samsung's home market of Korea from September 4 in black and white color options. Samsung hasn't announced the phone's pricing details just yet. Apart from Korea, the Galaxy A90 5G will also make its way to a few additional markets sometime in the near future.
