Okay, like I said earlier, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is supposedly going to be one of the best-selling mid-range phones for 2022 just as the Galaxy A52 did last year, and even the Galaxy A51 before it.
So, what do you get for the supposed best-selling mid-range phone for 2022?
Well, to begin with, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is more an incremental upgrade from the Galaxy A52 last year, so, don’t expect to see any drastic changes in specs, features, and even design.
And speaking of design, if you place the Galaxy A53 5G and the A52 from last year side by side, trust me, you’ll have a very hard time trying to tell them apart as they’re basically the same phones in terms of looks.
But looks aside, you get a familiar 6.5 inches Super AMOLED display with Full HD+ resolution, and ticking the clock at a 120Hz screen refresh rate.
The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 just as last year, and speaking of protection, the Galaxy A53 5G is among the few mid-range phones out there with a proper IP67 rating for ingress protection against dust and water.
Being a new device, the Galaxy A53 5G comes with Samsung’s new 5nm Exynos chipset, the Exynos 1280, and even the battery capacity has gotten a slight boost from 4500 mAh on the A52 to 5000 mAh on the new phone. Charging speed still tops out at 25W though.
And speaking about charging, well, unfortunately, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G doesn’t come with a charger in the box, so, you’d have to buy your own if you don’t have one lying around somewhere, and one other thing that you won’t find on the A53 5G is a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
Yes, sadly, but it is what it is.
So, aside from those, everything else that you’d get on the Galaxy A52 from last year, is exactly what you’ll get on this new phone.
A 64MP main camera, complete with optical image stabilization, a 12MP ultrawide, and two separate 5MP sensors, one for taking macro shots, and the other one for depth sensor.
Coming to the front, you get a 32MP front-facing camera. As before and unlike other mid-range phones from other brands, the Galaxy A53 5G can record 4K videos at up to 30fps using both the front and rear cameras.
You get Android 12 out of the box with Samsung’s proprietary One UI 4.1 software on top of it, and one weapon that the A53 5G comes with this year is the commitment of up to 5 years of software updates for the phone just like you’d get on Samsung flagships, 4 years of major Android version updates, and one additional year of security updates.
So, this means the phone will keep getting updated to Android 16 in 2026, which is something you don’t ever get to enjoy on other mid-range phone brands.
Other features include the tested and trusted set of stereo speakers and the good old under-display optical fingerprint reader.
The phone comes in four colors this year, namely; Black, White, Blue, and Peach.
