With the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G, a new 6.7-inch smartphone has been launched which uses a Super AMOLED Plus display with 1080 x 2400 pixels (FHD+) and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. An eight-core SoC with 6 GB of RAM provides the necessary computing power. Android 12 with One UI 4.1 comes installed on a 128GB hard drive – and, typical of Samsung, is likely to have bloatware, a double app store, and some apps that can’t be disabled or uninstalled.
Samsung Knox completes the security features of the device. The built-in 5000 mAh battery promises up to 17 hours of Internet use, up to 19 hours of video playback, up to 39 hours of 4G LTE telephony and up to 87 hours of music playback per charge. The manufacturer also announces support for Dolby Atmos and the link to the Windows function, with which smartphone applications and notifications can be used or viewed on compatible Windows computers.
In terms of cameras, there’s a 108MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 2MP depth sensor and macro specimen. A 32MP wide-angle does its job up front. Video recordings are possible in maximum 4K at 30 fps. Slow motion recordings in HD at 240 fps are also part of the feature set. Connections include 5G, Bluetooth 5.2, microSD (up to 1TB), NFC, USB-C and WLAN 802.11ac.
The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G weighing 176g is now available in Blue, Brown and Green color variants. Cost (PVC): 469 euros. The manufacturer gives a two-year warranty and provides quarterly security patches for Android. As with the current A-series, which also belongs to the middle class, at least four major upgrades (major versions) can be expected for the operating system of the M53 – but this has not been confirmed so far.
