Galaxy A53 5G: new chip and 8K video


2 min read

Samsung should soon present the successor to last year’s Galaxy A52 phone, which will try to dominate the mid-range segment this year. Quite detailed specifications have been posted on Twitter, citing a new chip and 8K video but no WiFi 6 nor Bluetooth 5.2.



Samsung has practically dominated the mid-range phone segment with its Galaxy A phones in recent years. In that pool are a bunch of phones from Chinese brands that they are successfully fighting.


Last year, Samsung raised the bar by a few centimeters more by implementing OIS on the main camera and raising the refresh rate to 120Hz.

This year, it seems, some things will be added but some will be dropped.

According to a post on Twitter, the Galaxy A53 5G will have a 6.5 ″ Super AMOLED display in FHD + resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. Instead of the Snapdragon chip, it will be powered by the new Exynos 1280, about which we know nothing yet. There was some story about the Exynos 1200 chip so whether it’s a bug or some subvariant of the same chip, we’ll see.



It also lists 6GB of RAM and 128GB of data memory with expansion through a hybrid dual SIM slot.

The battery has a capacity of 5000mAh with support for 25W charging.


The rear will get again a 64MP main camera with OIS, 12MP ultra-wide, 5MP macro, and 5MP depth sensor. In front is a 32MP selfie camera.

The novelty is that in addition to 4K at 60fps, the main camera will also record 8K at 24fps, which probably enables this new chip.

What you won’t like is the alleged ejection of the charger from the sales package as well as the removal of the 3.5mm audio jack.

The introduction of the Galaxy A53 5G can no longer be far off, and it is realistic to expect them before the end of the month.
