Samsung Galaxy A73 was launched quietly and… quietly


2 min read

Last week, Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A33, the latest mid-range offering in the company’s Galaxy A series portfolio. In addition to these phones, the South Koreans launched a third, more powerful device that flew under our radar: Samsung Galaxy A73. The Galaxy A73 is only mentioned once in Samsung’s press release, so it’s no wonder that it went mostly unnoticed and didn’t attract much attention, like the Galaxy A53.

The Galaxy A73 inherited last year’s Galaxy A72, and quite naturally, it’s a more powerful and premium offering than the Galaxy A53. It has

  • a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

On the inside, the device runs an indeterminate

  • octa-core chipset,
  • paired with 6GB / 8GB of RAM and 128GB / 256GB of storage.

For reference, the Galaxy A72 had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G SoC.



The biggest upgrade in the Galaxy A73 is the 108 MP rear camera, which is a big step up from the 64 MP sensor on the Galaxy A72. While the ultra-wide 12 MP camera and 5 MP camera are unchanged from the previous model, the telephoto lens has been left, replaced by a 5 MP depth lens.



The rest of the hardware is more or less the same as last year’s model. You still get a 5,000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging support (the charger does not come in a box), a fingerprint scanner under the screen, IP67 protection against water and dust, 5G support, and Bluetooth 5.0.

In terms of software, the Galaxy A73 will run Android 12 out of the box with Samsung’s latest skin One UI 4.1 on top. Samsung has not specified anything about software support, but it is safe to assume that the device will receive the same level of support (four years of OS updates) as the Galaxy A53.
