Along with the A33 5G and A53 5G, Samsung also launched the Samsung Galaxy A73 5G. It is the largest of the three and offers the biggest display – a 6.7” Super AMOLED panel with FHD+ resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. That replaces a display of the same size with 90 Hz refresh rate on last year’s A72.
The A73 offers next-gen connectivity. The unnamed chipset (suspected to be Exynos 1280) is paired with 6/8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB storage, plus a microSD slot for up to 1 TB more.
The phone boasts a 108 MP main camera with an f/1.8 lens with OIS, replacing the old 64 MP sensor. There’s no telephoto lens this time around, however, so the phone relies on its high resolution main sensor to do the zooming in.
The main camera is joined by a 12 MP ultra wide camera, a 5 MP macro cam and a 5 MP depth senor. On the front is a 32 MP selfie camera punch holed into the display.
The battery situation is the same as last year, 5,000 mAh capacity and 25W charging. The smaller A53 and A33 (even A23) offer the same battery.
