Samsung Galaxy A Series: What You Need to Know (+ Price Lists)
When Samsung launched the A50 series three years ago, it was the first phone from the company’s stable to feature an under-display fingerprint sensor. Though it was not the optical laser type sensor deployed in the S series, it was good enough for the masses, and for them precisely, Samsung made this A series.
The A-series, even today, continues to be the differentiating phone line in Samsung’s vast series of phones. Some say the A series is the middle ground between the F/M series and the S series. More like an affordable flagship but below the Fan Editions (FE). But lately, things turned very interesting in this affordable flagship category as the Nothing 1 phone is rumored to challenge Samsung’s throne. In case you’re looking to save more on your purchase, consider buying the phone from a verified wholesale iphone or Samsung manufacturer. You can also look for refurbished electronic gadgets at wholesale prices online.
Here Are Some of The Latest A Series Samsung Phones:
- Samsung A73 5G: The latest A series of Samsung smartphones all will get up to 5 years of updates, confirmed Samsung. That’s a strong promise of supporting a device even after three years which is the current trend. The A73 has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G and a 108-megapixel optical image stabilization enabled primary camera. Although the 778G might sound old, given that the 778G+ has launched, it’s a capable chipset that can help you smoothly sail through the day. It costs $525.
The battery capacity is rated at 5000 MaH, and going by the trend set by Apple, Samsung has stopped bundling a charger, but this device supports 25-watt fast charging.
But the display is one of the best available in the world, and it’s a 120Hz Super AMOLED panel with a peak brightness of 800 nits. So multimedia consumption is going to be a good experience on this phone. But, Samsung omitted the 3.5 mm headphone jack to shrink the phone’s width, so you must use the type c to 3.5 mm adapter (bought separately) or use a pair of Bluetooth headsets.
Overall it’s quite a good phone and with lots of goodies. Gamers will surely appreciate the phone since the thermal management system is quite good on A73 5G.
- Samsung A53: The A53 is a solid midrange but only if you think of this as such. The A52s had a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G(same as the A73), but the A53 has Samsung’s own Exynos 1280 based on the 5-nanometer process. Samsung says that the Exynos runs more relaxed because it takes up less space than the 778G, but benchmarks show the peak performance of 778G to be better than Exynos 1280. The Exynos chip is not by far any downgrade, but it’s not an upgrade either. It costs $320.
You will not notice a difference in daily life practical usage, and the fluid 120 Hz display with AMOLED type will keep you entertained. However, it is in gaming where you will notice the difference. You will see not much difference in casual games, but in graphics-intensive games, the Mali-G68 in Exynos 1280 can’t keep up with Adreno 642L.
Regarding cameras, the primary one is 64 megapixels with phase detection autofocus (PDAF), optical image stabilization, and the focal length is 0.8 µm (micrometer). The quality of the image shot in daylight is good enough, and the selfie is the same 32-megapixel pixel binned 12-megapixel camera found in numerous other A-series phones. But an interesting take here is that this A53 5G supports wider 5G bands and has stereo speakers but no 3.5 mm headphone jack.
- A32 5G: This smartphone falls for the value segment of the market and is targeted at those customers who need a good camera, display, and battery phone but can accept a few compromises. The compromise in A32 5G comes in display technology since the TFT LCD is used here instead of Amoled. The display resolution is 720p, but it has a high screen-to-body ratio of 81.6%.
The chipset used here is Mediatek density 720, which is a reasonably capable chipset given the price, and you will not experience shutters or bugs in day-to-day usage. The primary camera is a 48-megapixel unit and has phase detection autofocus too. It can also record 4K videos at 30 frames per second. The battery capacity is the same as all the other A-series phones at 5000 mAH, but fast charging is limited to 15 watts. It costs $135 but finding a good deal from a credible cell phone and tablet wholesale dealer will be more cost effective.
The Samsung A series of phones is a genuinely affordable flagship category, and there is something for everyone over here. The A73 serves the upper end of the spectrum, A53 5G strikes the middle ground, and the A32 caters to the value-conscious people who need a dependable all-day lasting phone without spending much.
