The Galaxy A33 is projected to succeed the affordable-class A32 5G from 2021. According to the latest renders, the upcoming model may not change much in terms of design or specs in 2022. On the other hand, it is now slated to lose a feature that is usually a perk of budget Android smartphones.

Samsung is currently slated to produce very direct successors for the Galaxy A series of 2021. Accordingly, there may be a Galaxy A33 to succeed the A32. Now, a new set of high-quality images from the eminent tipster OnLeaks suggests that the latter may not move on much in terms of looks.

The renders show a phone with very similar rear and front panels to the existing lower-mid-tier phone, Infinity-U notch and all, although it is still shown in the lavender color said to be replaced by orange in the entire 2022 Galaxy A series. The A33 is also now believed to even have the same size of FHD+ SAMOLED display (6.4 inches) as its putative predecessor.

It may also inherit a USB type-C port and quad rear shooters, found in a camera hump nearly identical to that of the A32, except in a more raised form this time around. On the other hand, the A33 is thought to ditch a 4G variant in 2022, not to mention the 3.5mm jack that is normally found in phones starting at ~US$270 or less.

Hopefully, this is not a sign that Samsung and other OEMs will start phasing the component out in this price-tier as well in the near future. On the other hand, the device as portrayed in this new leak is far from official yet.
