Back in October of 2019, Samsung had updated its update schedule to reflect its commitment to offering monthly updates for the Galaxy A50, and it seems that Samsung is doing its part to keep to its schedule. The Galaxy A90 5G, on the other hand, was launched as the first handset under the company’s A-Series to support 5G connectivity, and it ran on a previous-generation flagship chipset from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon 855. Thus, the handset was launched in limited markets including Europe and certain parts of Asia.
