Samsung lower budget A series devices have been a favorite if not one of the best selling devices from the manufacturer among Kenyans year after year, and Understandably so, Samsung is adding to the lineup with the Galaxy A53 5G.
There have been loads of speculative renders, and a prototype was spotted in a benchmark database revealing some of its specifications hence we have an idea of what the device will be like.
First, the device has now been certified by 3C, alongside its charger – a 15W unit. Competitors are already providing way faster-charging support at this price point and it’s rather disappointing that Samsung keeps the same slow charger.
“According to this report by MySmartPrice, the Samsung Galaxy A53 5G smartphone with the model number SM-A5360 is listed on the 3C certification website. The bundled charger reportedly listed along with the phone has an output of 1.67 amperes current at 9.0V and 2.0 ampere at 5V, which corresponds to a maximum charging speed of 15W.”
In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy A53 which is expected to launch in Q1 of 2022 will have almost the same design as the A52. The dimensions of the phone are roughly 159.6 x 74.7 x 8.14mm (9.73mm including rear camera bump). This is a bit slimmer than the A52’s thickness. The camera bump extends from the back-plate itself which is made of plastic.
A tipster, Anthony reports via a tweet that the A53 will be using an Exynos 1200 SoC.
Other leaked specs include a 6.5″ flat AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz, a quad rear camera setup with a 64-megapixel primary camera. The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G is also tipped to pack a 5,000mAh battery.
