The Galaxy A series mid-range smartphones obviously continue to play their own crucial role in aiding the company to retain the top spot among the world’s largest smartphone vendors as far as sales volume is concerned, despite not being anywhere near as important for Samsung’s profit scores as the high-end Galaxy S series.
For example, the Galaxy A13 and A03 were by far the tech giant’s most well-liked smartphones in 2022. This is just one of the numerous reasons why many people may be anticipating the release of the Galaxy A34 5G and Galaxy A54 5G.
As the names suggest, these are slightly more advanced products than the two aforementioned bestsellers, and even though they’re not technically official yet, we already know everything there is to know about them. Yes, every little thing from the design language to color options, full specifications, and even European pricing.

Like it did with the somewhat more expensive Galaxy A54 5G, Media Markt has done it again by prematurely listing this mid-range smartphone in Austria. However, we were unable to see the 5G-enabled A34 in action on the Austrian website of the German shop, and because all the information was unsurprisingly removed, it is still unclear exactly what the product’s dimensions are.
The existence of a Dimensity 1080 SoC within the Galaxy A34 5G, which replaces the Samsung-made Exynos 1080 found inside the A33 5G last year and the Dimensity 900 SoC that was originally thought to power this new mid-ranger, is by far the most exciting information that has been provided here.
Because 1080 is a bigger number than 900, this is definitely good news, especially when considering the Galaxy A34 5G is likely to end up costing a little less than rumored last month.
Here are the highly likely price tags for the Galaxy A34 5G
128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM cost €390
8 GB of RAM and 256GB of storage cost €460
That’s actually… not that horrible, is it? Although it’s a little worse than the Galaxy A33 5G’s debut cost from around a year ago, it’s still better than the first estimates of €410 to €430 for the entry-level edition on the old Continent.
Does the Galaxy A34 5G fit our criteria for the greatest-value phones on the market in 2023 in terms of price (and value)? Probably. But, this wouldn’t be the one gadget in that category to receive any kind of trophy or crown.
Its design is simply too easily forgettable and its specs not… special enough to help the A34 5G stand out from the mid-range crowd. In terms of design, the aforementioned pictures are by far the most accurate and crisp representations of the A34 to date, showcasing all of its anticipated paint colors (violet, lime, graphite, and silver) in all their advertising brilliance.
The Galaxy A34 5G looks an awful lot like the slightly more powerful and feature-packed Galaxy A54 5G, which is definitely a good thing, but it does make one fairly important style compromise, settling for a small U-shaped notch rather than going the even smaller (and more modern) hole punch route.
