Samsung Galaxy M53 5G announced with features from the Galaxy A73
Last month, it appeared that Samsung had started teasing the Galaxy M53 5G, a more powerful alternative to the Galaxy M23 and the Galaxy M33 5G. While the handset did not arrive on March 27 as expected, Samsung has now revealed it on its Mobile Press website.
Like other recent Galaxy A and Galaxy M releases, Samsung has not confirmed what chipset powers the Galaxy M53. Instead, the company states that the Galaxy M53 relies on a 5G chipset with an octa-core CPU containing two cores running at 2.4 GHz and a further six clocked at 2 GHz.
Based on those specifications, it seems likely that Samsung has equipped the Galaxy M53 with the Dimensity 900, a chipset also found in the OnePlus Nord CE 2 5G and the Oppo Reno6 5G. Additionally, the Galaxy M53 will be available with 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable storage and a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 25 W fast charging.
Separately, the Galaxy M53 shares a few details with the Galaxy A73, including its 6.7-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. For reference, the display has a 1080p native resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate, plus a centre punch-hole for a 32 MP front-facing camera.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy M53 has the Galaxy A73's 108 MP primary camera as well, but without optical image stabilisation. Sadly, the Galaxy A73's other optics have been replaced with an 8 MP ultra-wide-angle camera and dual 2 MP sensors for calculating depth of field and macro information. Samsung has not announced how much the Galaxy M53 costs; the Galaxy M23 and Galaxy M33 5G's release suggests we could be a few weeks away from learning that.
