Like every year, Samsung is preparing to unveil a new series of smartphones from its A range. Before the official presentation, we already know everything about the Galaxy A53 5G, the Korean manufacturer’s mid-range device.
Samsung’s Galaxy A53 5G passed through the benches of the TENAA certification body, and it took the opportunity to reveal the full technical data sheet of the smartphone before its official launch. TENAA also unveiled images of the smartphone, which confirm the design of OnLeaks’ renders a few months ago.
The smartphone will directly succeed the Galaxy A52 5G of 2021. We learn that the smartphone is powered by a Samsung Exynos 1200 chip. The Galaxy A53 5G is equipped on the front with a 6.46-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, like the most high-end models of the manufacturer.
Samsung ditches the headphone jack of its mid-range smartphones
TENAA confirms that the Galaxy A53 5G is powered by a 4880 mAh battery, but Samsung is expected to advertise a 5,000 mAh battery on the device’s final spec sheet instead. This is compatible with 15 W “fast” charging, against 45 W for the future Galaxy S22 Ultra which could arrive on February 9th.
On the photo side, the smartphone will bet on a quad camera setup, with a 64-megapixel main sensor, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and two other 5 MP and 2 MP sensors. At the front, the selfie part will be managed by a 32 MP sensor. The smartphone promises to be rather light and compact, with only 190 grams on the scale and a thickness of 8.1 mm.
Finally, the certification body confirms the absence of the jack on this model. It would seem that Samsung has decided to abandon the headphone jack on its entire A range in 2022, since even other smartphones like the Galaxy A73 5G or Galaxy A33 5G which had also been unveiled by OnLeaks.
As of now, it’s unclear exactly when Samsung will unveil its new Galaxy A smartphones, but their launch is imminent. They might be coming from February or March 2022.
