Samsung is launching several affordable A series smartphones

The Galaxy A33 5G, A53 5G and A73 5G represent the new generation of Samsung’s highly regarded mid-range smartphones.

The most powerful of Samsung’s large range of smartphones are, of course, the foldable Fold and Flip series. The Galaxy S series, which has won a lot of fans, also gets a lot of attention. The practical and good yet fairly affordable Galaxy A series devices that make up large sales numbers are without doubt the most popular.

On 17 March, Samsung introduced three new A series smartphones: Galaxy A33 5G, Galaxy A53 5G, and Galaxy A73 5G. As the names suggest, all three models feature a future-proof 5G connectivity support.

The mid-range model, Galaxy A53, is sure to become the most popular. It is also the only one of the announced phones that will be available for purchase immediately. Officially, it is the successor to the Galaxy A52, but Samsung actually released an updated version of the A52s 5G in the autumn, which has proven to be very successful. This phone, however, continues to be better than then new model in several aspects and is also much cheaper. The new model features a considerably larger battery (5000 mAh vs 4500 mAh), but Samsung’s own Exynos 1280 processor is slightly weaker than the Qualcomm version used in the previous model. The headphone jack important for many has also disappeared on all the new models. The most affordable model of the trio, Galaxy A33, is very similar to its big brother, both in terms of appearance and features. The body which is practically identical in size has a slightly smaller screen. The Galaxy A53 uses a 6.5“ Super AMOLED screen in a fairly thin frame with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, and the front camera opening is cut into the screen. The Galaxy A33 uses a slightly smaller 6.4“ screen with a larger frame and refresh rate of 90 Hz. The front camera, however, is found in the older water drop-shaped opening. There is also a difference in cameras. The main camera on the A53 features a 64 MP sensor with optical stabilisation, while the A33 uses a smaller 48 MP sensor. On the plus side, Samsung has also added an optical stabiliser to the camera of the cheapest model.
The ultra-wide camera is also different – the A53 has a 12 MP sensor. The A33, however, has only got an 8 MP version. The detail of front cameras also varies. The A53 uses a 32 MP camera, while the A33 only has a 13 MP camera. In addition, the Galaxy A53 can record 4K videos, while the users of the A33 have to settle for Full HD.

The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is already available for purchase. The version with 6 GB RAM and 128 GB internal memory costs 449.99 euros, and the price of the version with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB internal memory is 499.99 euros. The Galaxy A33 5G will be available for purchase at the end of April and will cost just under 400 euros.

However, given the 100 euros lower price of the Galaxy A52s 5G that has been available on the market for just seven months and the fact that, compared to the new model, its disadvantages are only a slightly smaller battery and somewhat shorter software support, buyers looking for a good deal might find it worth considering buying the slightly older model. That said, it is very likely that once the new model is released, the older version will no longer be manufactured and it won’t be staying on the shelves for long.
