Samsung A53 5G differs from the cheaper model, primarily in that it has a faster display and higher-resolution cameras.

The latter is not an improvement, on the contrary – instead of four ARM Cortex-A78 performance cores, there are now only two of them, which are accompanied by six Cortex-A55. The 6.5-inch, 120Hz, 1080p+ AMOLED display is inherited from the previous model, as is the quad-camera on the rear, consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera with f/1.8 aperture, optical image stabilization, a 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera with f/ 2.2 aperture, a 5 MP depth camera, and a 5 MP macro camera.

However, Samsung emphasizes that there are improvements despite the identical camera hardware because both the night mode and the portrait mode should deliver better results with the Samsung Galaxy new mobile. As usual, the front camera uses a 32 MP sensor. The housing is IP67 certified, making the device waterproof. In addition to the integrated 5G modem, Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.1 are also available. Pleasing: The Samsung Galaxy A53 5G comes with One UI 4.1 based on Android 12. Samsung promises four years of operating system updates and five years of security patches.
