On the bangs above the screen perched a single front camera with a 32MP resolution with f / 2.0 lens opening. While the back of the Galaxy A90 5G is made of glass with a design called a ‘geometric pattern’ by combining two colours that are slightly different at the top and bottom of the case.

Three rear cameras embedded neatly in the upper left corner with each resolution of 48MP (f / 2.0) for the main camera, 8MP ultra-wide (f / 2.2), and 5MP depth sensor (f / 2.2).

Some of Samsung’s superior camera features like Super Steady, Scene Optimizer and Flaw Detector complete the rear camera features. While the front camera has a Live Focus mode.
