It has taken Samsung a while, but it has detailed what chipsets power the Galaxy A13, Galaxy A23, Galaxy A33 5G, Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A73 5G. Disappointingly, Samsung has re-used older Exynos and Snapdragon SoCs, but there are some newer options available.

Samsung has finally confirmed what chipsets it has used in its new Galaxy A series smartphones, although not on its website. For some reason, the company continues to refer to SoCs in the Galaxy A73 5G and Galaxy A53 by their clock speeds, unlike its competitors. Samsung did not reveal what chipsets it had used in any of its Galaxy A series press releases either.

Instead, it has included these details in a press release on its Indian newsroom. As expected, the Galaxy A73 5G relies on the Snapdragon 778G, a 6 nm SoC also found in the Galaxy A52s 5G and the Galaxy M52 5G. In comparison, the company equips the Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G with the Exynos 1280, a 5 nm chipset that remains missing from Samsung's Semiconductor Global website.

Separately, the Galaxy A23 utilises the Snapdragon 680 4G that Qualcomm revealed in October 2021. Finally, the Galaxy A13 comes with the Exynos 850, an 8 nm SoC that Samsung announced in October 2019. Sadly, this means that the Galaxy A13 has the same chipset as its predecessor, along with the Galaxy A21s, Galaxy M12 and the Galaxy XCover 5.

Incidentally, it remains unclear where Samsung will sell the Galaxy A73 5G, other than in India. The Galaxy A73 5G is Samsung's first Galaxy A series smartphone with a 108 MP camera, even if its SoC is nearing a year old at this point.
