Samsung has launched a new Galaxy M-series budget phone named Galaxy M53 5G. The main highlight of the phone is its 108-megapixel primary camera sensor. It also has a high refresh rate AMOLED display panel. If you have not noticed this already, it is simply an affordable version of the Galaxy A73 5G.
The Galaxy M53 5G sports a 6.7-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Plus Infinity-O display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, it has an octa-core processor said to be MediaTek's Dimensity 900. It is reported to be the first Samsung mid-range phone to feature the chipset. The phone is available in a single configuration of 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It supports microSD cards for storage expansion up to 1TB.
The back panel has a square-shaped camera module featuring four cameras. These include a 108-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture, a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on the phone is a 32-megapixel sensor with f/2.2 aperture housed inside the punch-hole.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with 25W Super Fast charging. However, a compatible fast charger will need to be purchased separately. The phone will boot One UI 4.1 based on Android 12 out of the box. Samsung is yet to reveal Galaxy M53 5G pricing and availability details.
