Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G: Awesome Mobile Experiences Open to Everyone
SINGAPORE – 18 March 2022 – Samsung Electronics announced the Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G to deliver a complete package of the latest Galaxy innovations, offering a holistic mobile experience at a great value. Powered by a brand-new processor, coupled with Galaxy’s signature AI camera, expansive and smooth display, and long-lasting battery life, the new Galaxy A series lineup features 5G connectivity, defence-grade security, an eco-conscious, stylish and slim design, and advanced connected experiences. Both devices support continuous One UI and Android OS upgrades and security updates to ensure the user mobile experience is always awesome.
“We’re making it easier than ever to enjoy the latest Galaxy mobile experience at an accessible price point. The newest additions to our Galaxy A Series feature amazing innovation, including enhanced OIS camera functionality, long-lasting battery life, IP67 grade water and dust resistance and 5G standalone support, all packed in a sleek design with Awesome colourways,” said Sarah Chua, Vice President of Mobile eXperience, Samsung Electronics Singapore.
Capture an Awesome Shot in Any Situation
Whether it’s creating short videos or sharing your visual moments with friends, the Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G offer an advanced, next-level camera experience, packed with many of the powerful and fun features from the Galaxy S series.
Galaxy A53 5G’s quad-camera system features a 64MP OIS Camera with VDIS technology that takes crisp and steady shots every time. Meanwhile, a high-resolution 32MP front camera delivers great selfies and clear video call experiences. On the other hand, the Galaxy A33 5G also features a quad-camera system with a 48MP OIS main camera.
Fuelled by a brand new 5nm processor, the new Galaxy A series’ innovative AI-powered camera makes every image look awesome – even in low light. Improved Night mode automatically synthesises up to 12 images at once, so night photos look bright and with less noise. When shooting videos under low-light environment, the Galaxy A series’ frame rate is automatically adjusted to create bright and clear videos.
The enhanced Portrait mode captures depth and subject outlines more accurately with dual cameras and powerful AI. With Fun mode, moments can be amplified using playful filters and effects that now work with the Ultra-wide lens. Plus, Photo Remaster breathes new life into old and low-quality photos, and Object Eraser removes pesky photo bombers in the background.
Maximise Viewing Experiences Anywhere, Anytime
In the past, a sunny day could make it hard to see what’s on a smartphone screen, but the new Galaxy A series’ intelligent algorithm ensures the display comes through in vivid detail, even outside. Galaxy A53 5G’s expansive 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display also offers a 120Hz refresh rate for an immersive experience while Galaxy A33 5G features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The new Galaxy A series is now equipped with long-lasting battery life and 25W Super Fast Charging – so viewing, streaming and more can last longer.
Beautiful, Durable, Purposeful Design
The new Galaxy A series is expertly crafted to be fashionable, functional, and sustainable. The device’s slim bezel creates a smooth, stylish look and Ambient Edge design seamlessly blends the camera with the body of the phone. Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G feature the tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 and IP67 water and dust resistance, providing enhanced durability and peace of mind.
Samsung has always challenged what’s possible with technology and will continue to rethink how best to use the planet’s resources. Galaxy for the Planet is Samsung’s commitment in delivering tangible environmental actions to help make the planet healthier by 2025. Building on Samsung’s sustainability efforts, the packaging size of Galaxy A series is reduced, and is packaged in sustainably sourced paper, while the device itself uses recycled post-consumer materials (PCM) for the side buttons and SIM card trays.
Beyond materials, both devices guarantee 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 maximise the smartphone lifecycle.
The Connected Galaxy Experience, Secure and at Your Fingertips
The new Galaxy A series ensures data and information stay protected, secured by the defence-grade Samsung Knox. When storing private photos, notes and apps, Secure Folder offers users an encrypted, digital safe, so only they can access its contents. Using Private Share, users can control exactly who has access to files and for how long.
Galaxy A53 5G and A33 5G work seamlessly with other Galaxy devices for the full, connected Galaxy ecosystem experience. Audio options are expanded by connecting the Galaxy Buds series with a range of devices, including Galaxy A53 5G and Galaxy A33 5G. Available on Galaxy Buds Pro and coming soon to Galaxy Buds2 and Buds Live, users will be able to enjoy 360 Audio technology which delivers true, immersive, 3D sounds. When it’s time to get productive, use Link to Windows to connect the new Galaxy A series to a Windows PC to copy and paste, transfer files and even answer calls or texts.
