Samsung recently announced the availability of their latest Galaxy smartphone innovations in the Philippines and we’re not getting just one but THREE NEW SMARTPHONES in the market! Powered by a brand-new processor, coupled with Galaxy’s signature AI camera, expansive and smooth display, and two-day battery life, the new Galaxy A series features 5G connectivity, defense-grade security, an eco-conscious, stylish and slim design, and advanced connected experiences. In case you’re wondering what their main differences are in terms of specifications and price, we’ve got your covered!
Whether creating content or sharing it with friends, all the new smartphones offer an advanced, next-level camera experience, packed with many of the powerful and fun features from the Galaxy A series. The Galaxy A73 5G has higher megapixels than the other two. Plus, it’s the biggest in terms of dimensions.
Fueled by a brand new 5nm processor, the new Galaxy A series’ innovative AI-powered camera makes every image look awesome – even in low lighting. Improved Night mode automatically synthesizes up to 12 images at once, so night photos look bright, with less noise. And when shooting video in low-light environments, the Galaxy A series’ framerate is automatically adjusted to create bright, clear videos.
The enhanced Portrait mode captures depth and subject outlines more accurately with dual cameras and powerful AI. Meanwhile, with Fun mode, moments can be amplified using playful filters and effects that now work with the Ultra-wide lens. For the first time on the Galaxy A series, Photo Remaster breathes new life into old photos by offering ideal lighting and resolution settings, and Object eraser removes pesky photo bombers in the background.
Samsung has always challenged what’s possible with technology and will continue to rethink how best to use the planet’s resources. Announced in August 2021 with Galaxy for the Planet, Samsung is committed to delivering tangible environmental actions to help make the planet healthier by 2025. Building on Samsung’s sustainability efforts, the Galaxy A series removes the charger plug and reduces the size of the packaging. Packaging also uses sustainably sourced paper, while the device itself uses recycled post-consumer materials (PCM) for the side buttons and SIM card trays.
Beyond materials, the longevity of the new A series is extended. Galaxy A53 5G guarantees up to four generations of One UI and Android OS upgrades and up to five years of security updates. These features allow users to access the latest software and security to maximize the smartphone lifecycle.
