Every year, Samsung introduces loads of new smartphone models. The Galaxy Ax3 will be the name for the affordable and mid-range Galaxy A series handsets in 2022. Consider the Galaxy A13 on a budget, the Galaxy A33 on a somewhat higher budget, and the Galaxy A53 on a mid-range budget. The Samsung Galaxy A73 will be one of the most technologically sophisticated A series devices. This phone will be available in the second quarter of 2022. Only a 5G variant is anticipated to be launched this time.
The Samsung A73 now has a new display.
To start with the front. The phone will most likely have an AMOLED flat screen. Presumably, a 6.7-inch screen with Full HD + resolution will be chosen. The refresh rate can be increased from 90 Hz to 120 Hz. The fingerprint is placed under the screen. The A-series smartphone will have an IP67 certified plastic casing – in other words, the phone is dust and water-resistant. Last month, Korean media The Elec announced that Samsung for the first time wanted to equip the new A-series model with a screen from a Chinese manufacturer. This allows the company to save on costs, necessary to face growing competition from Chinese brands. Potential display providers are CSOT and BOE. Samsung has reportedly asked the two manufacturers to manufacture an OLED panel, whoever offers the best solution will be authorized to produce the screens for the A73. The Chinese CSOT is already supplying Samsung displays for the Galaxy M series. The Galaxy A73 5G will most likely be re-equipped with a perforated selfie camera, which will be placed in the centre in the middle. It is not yet clear whether Samsung will go for a 32MP front camera again or if it will go this time for a 12MP front camera, as is the case with the Galaxy S21 FE.
We are also waiting for the necessary changes at the top and bottom. Where the Galaxy A72’s SIM slot was accessible from above, it will most likely be moved down with the A73. This space is freed up because Samsung will remove the 3.5mm headphone connection. Unfortunately, this will also apply to the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy A33. The new A-series model will probably still offer the option of using a microSD memory card, unlike the S-series models. In addition, the bottom will house a USB TypeC connection, microphone and speaker. As usual with Samsung smartphones, the volume keys and the power button are located on the right side. The left side remains free of buttons and connections. The device will work with the Android 12 operating system in conjunction with the One UI 4 user interface. Samsung provides its A-series models with 3 years of software updates and 4 years of security updates. As for the chipset, the Samsung A73 5G could be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G, which is also used in the Galaxy A52 5G. There will likely be several memory variants on offer: 6 / 8GB RAM and 128GB / 256GB ROM.
Some time ago, Garyeon Han announced via Twitter that the Galaxy A73 will be equipped with a 108-megapixel image sensor. It would be the first time that a mid-range Samsung phone has been equipped with a high-resolution camera. For now, only the brand’s top models are equipped with a 108MP camera, like the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Galaxy S21 Ultra. Most likely, Samsung will use a different sensor for the A73. Samsung should use the ISOCell HM2 sensor. This is a relatively small 1 / 1.52 ″ sensor with 0.7μm pixels. This is Samsung’s third-generation 108MP camera sensor for mid-range smartphones. Several other brands have already applied this image sensor from Samsung, such as Xiaomi Redmi Note 10 Pro, Honor 50 and Motorola Edge 20.
A part of the main camera, there is still no information on the other three cameras of the Galaxy A73. It is possible that these will remain unchanged. To give you an idea, the Galaxy A72 is equipped with a 64 MP main camera with OIS, a 12 MP ultra-wide camera, an 8 MP telephoto lens with OIS and a camera. macro of 5 MP. Since the A73 has a large display, you can also expect a large capacity battery to be built in. It will likely be a 5,000mAh battery again with support for 25W fast charging. It is not yet clear whether Samsung will provide a charger with A-series phones next year.
When can we expect the new A-series cars in 2022?
Korean media reported earlier this month that production of the Galaxy A73 will not begin until the second quarter of 2022. This means the new phone model will arrive later than its predecessor, the A72 introduced in March, at the same time. time than its predecessor. ‘A52. Production of the A33 and A53 will begin in the first quarter of 2022, so these Samsung phones are expected to release sooner. The Galaxy A7x is generally much less popular than its budget sibling, the Galaxy A5x. This is also evident from the sales figures of the Galaxy A52 / A72. Samsung also expects the A73 to be the same next year as the A53 and A33. Samsung plans to produce 28 million Galaxy A53 5G smartphones, while only 3.4 million of the A73 5G units will be produced. A significant difference. No pricing information is yet available, the Galaxy A72 4G received a suggested retail price of € 470 at launch. The new model will likely go on sale for the same price. In the coming months, we will know more about the Samsung A73 5G.
