Samsung Galaxy A33 will reportedly use the same, still unofficial Exynos 1280 chipset as the Galaxy A53. This 5nm SoC apparently comes with an octa-core CPU with two 2.4 GHz Cortex-A78 cores and six 2.0 GHz Cortex-A55 cores.
The Galaxy A33 will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage when paired with the Exynos 1280, although there could be differences in regional variants – we could see the A33 with the Exynos 1200, and just 6GB of RAM.

It’s still unclear what to expect in terms of performance from the Exynos 1280. Last year’s report claimed it would be worse than what the Exynos 1080 offers, but that doesn’t make sense, so we’ll have to wait and see. By the way, it has long been rumored that both the A33 and A53 will only be offered with 5G – there will be no 4G models this year.
It is also expected that the Galaxy A33 will have water and dust resistance, specifically IP67. Last year, the Galaxy A52 was the cheapest Samsung with such a rating, this year it goes even further on the A33. It’s no surprise that the Galaxy A33 will run Android 12 with One UI 4.1 on top.
