Samsung Galaxy A event recap: New Midrange phones!


At the Galaxy A announcement today (March 17), Samsung promised more potent midrange phones and the company more than delivered on that promise. Ahead of a launch next month, the Samsung Galaxy A53 & Samsung Galaxy A33 make their online event debuts.

When it launches on April 1, the Galaxy A53 will cost $449/€449/£399 (even if it appears that some U.S. carriers may receive the phone on March 31). The Galaxy A33 will be available on April 22 for €369/£329; the absence of U.S. pricing seems to imply that the A33 won’t initially be available in this nation.

The Galaxy A53’s Price would also lead you to believe that it will be very competitive with phones like the iPhone S.E. & Pixel 5a. Additionally, Samsung described the features and capabilities of its new mid-range phones, which further suggests that these gadgets can compete with practically any non-flagship phone.

Here is some information on what Samsung revealed at its event today:

With its 6.5-inch screen and triple camera setup, Samsung’s more advanced phone is very similar to the Galaxy A52 from the previous year. However, Samsung claims that the gadget is now powered by an Exynos 1280, which has many AI-inspired capabilities. The phone has an IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, and its 5,000 mAh battery must provide multi-day battery life.

The 5,000 mAh battery, Exynos 1380 CPU, AMOLED panel, and IP67 water-resistance of the A53 have all made their way to the A33. It’s easy to assume that the Galaxy A33 received a lot more advancements than its predecessor from the previous year, the Galaxy A32.

Below is a video replay of the Galaxy A event. Here is the live blog summary, which was written while the event was happening.

Why would anyone be interested in the midrange Galaxy phones?

Why would anyone be interested in the midrange Galaxy phones?

You might start pondering this. We also hear you. Undoubtedly, the Galaxy S22 phones that were released last month have more high-end features.

But as we have mentioned, the Galaxy A phones remain surprisingly popular, especially since that Samsung has been giving its midrange models more attention recently. And given that the iPhone SE 2022 will be available tomorrow, it only makes sense to draw comparisons between Samsung’s new phones, especially the Galaxy A53, and Apple’s entry-level handset.

Here’s a closer look at why it’s dangerous to ignore the Galaxy A announcements.

The Galaxy A33’s specifications are the subject of the most current announcements leak as of this writing.

This new phone is rumored to cost €379 at launch, that’s more than this $279 Samsung paid for the A32. Rarely do phone manufacturers perform simple phone conversions; instead, they choose to set distinct prices for various locations. However, that price may reflect the Galaxy A33’s purported upgrades, such as the use of an OLED panel rather than an LCD one.

Samsung Galaxy A event recap: Galaxy Event

Samsung was remarkably open when it revealed the details of the March 17 product unveiling when it unveiled today’s Galaxy event so over the weekend. According to the company’s announcement of the event, “Samsung is bringing the powerful Galaxy technologies for the A series even farther.” “The fantastic new Galaxy A series devices are created to offer the fully-loaded experience that customers want from a smartphone,” says Samsung.

That’s a vague statement, but we’re assuming it refers to software upgrades that will give the Galaxy A lineup’s cameras and other hardware more features. Because, at least theoretically, the initial linkages seem to indicate that the cameras offered by the Galaxy A53 & Galaxy A33 will be fairly comparable to those found on their predecessors.

Is the iPhone SE 2022 is budgeted phone?

Along with the already popular cheap phone, the iPhone SE 2022, which would be causing a stir, the Galaxy A33 and A53 will have to compete against the Google Pixel 5a.

Google’s newest budget phone is something of a marvel; it offers a wonderful take on Android in a tidy container with incredible phone photography, everyone for under $400. However, the rumored specs put the Galaxy phones on top.

Oneplus Nord 2

The OnePlus Nord 2 is among the several mid-range phones that will compete with the Samsung Galaxy A33 & A53.

The OnePlus Nord 2 was described as “OnePlus has again built a phone that delivers so much for a device of its price that you may find it difficult to believe the specs sheet,” reviewer Richard Priday said. “This is the new mid-range phone to beat.” It’s just unfortunate that it has yet to arrive in the United States.”

By delivering its more cheap phones to the United States, Samsung may have the upper hand. If it can replace OnePlus in other areas, though, only time will tell.

Samsung Galaxy A event recap: Additional Phones

There may be additional phones making their debut at today’s Samsung event, depending on who you ask. The Galaxy A73 is the one that is mentioned most frequently by rumor-mongers.

The Galaxy A73’s alleged 108MP camera, a first for the Galaxy A range, is one of the most intriguing aspects of the speculations surrounding the device. In addition, the A73 would have a telephoto lens, which is a feature that is uncommon for midrange phones.

The issue, of course, is that the Galaxy S21 FE, a phone Samsung announced back in January as a more affordable member of the Galaxy S21 series, has features that are uncomfortably similar to those of the Galaxy S21. Because the Galaxy S22 only prices $100 more than S21 FE and is likely a better bargain, that phone was almost quickly eclipsed by the arrival of the Galaxy S22.

At least not globally; we don’t necessarily see Samsung launching another phone that also undercuts the Galaxy S21 FE. It’s probable that, like the Galaxy A72, the Galaxy A73 is only available in a few markets. It’s unclear if this implies it will appear on stage at the Galaxy A event today.

Samsung sold 58 percent of its phones in the A-Series last year

More justification for why the Galaxy A phones are receiving their own launch event today: according to Android Central, 58 percent of Samsung’s phone sales in 2017 were made up of A-Series phones. If the Galaxy A52 (seen above) and its buddies were that important to your phone business, you would also host an event.

Don’t change your setup. Aimed at smartphone users, Samsung is presenting the live stream’s video at a vertical angle.

By the way, the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A33 are visible.

Dolby Atmos Speakers

Samsung A33 seems to have a 6.4-inch speaker, while the Galaxy A53 has a 6.5-inch screen. A louder Dolby Atmos speaker from Samsung promises rich, immersive sound. When the phones are outside, an algorithm controls the brightness.

The camera’s specifications are as follows: The Galaxy A53’s main camera is 64 MP, whereas the Galaxy A33’s is 48 MP.

The A-series has improved the Portrait mode to capture more depth. Samsung has also made low-light advances, such as an improved night mode, a promise.


When you take video on the phone, A.I. is used to modify frame rates. But that, artificial intelligence also aids in the removal of obtrusive elements from photographs. (The Pixel 6 has a function like this.)

The Exynos 1280, which we believe to be the 5nm processor powering AI functionality, is the best guess.

Samsung Galaxy A phones shouldn’t view as budget electronics, according to Samsung’s messaging. The Galaxy A33 & Galaxy A55 should view as front-line phones on par with the Galaxy S22 flagships because of the AI-powered features & Quick Share capabilities.

Robustness and Water-resistance

Let’s discuss robustness. The A33 and A53 both offer a strong frame to prevent drops and IP67 water- and dust resistance. (We assume, however, that you still want to purchase a case.)

Its 5,000 mAh power packs in both phones, according to Samsung, should provide multiple days of usage. Apps that aren’t being used, it seems, are automatically put to sleep.

UI 4 and Sim Tray

For Galaxy A53 & Galaxy A33, One U.I. 4 is the preferred user interface. Given the current privacy concerns, Samsung is promoting the privacy dashboard option, which is part of the Android 12 interface.

As part of Samsung’s efforts to create environmentally friendly products, SIM trays, side keys, and other components of the phone are produced from recycled phones.
