After a successful launch of the Galaxy S22 series last month, Samsung has unveiled their latest mid-range handsets with five new Galaxy A-series handsets heading to Australia soon.
The new phones announced at an online event overnight include a mix of 5G and 4G compatible handsets, including the Galaxy A73 5G, Galaxy A53 5G, Galaxy A33 5G as well as the Galaxy A13 4G and Galaxy A23 4G.
The Galaxy A-Series are a good seller for Samsung, offering a large display with smooth scrolling thanks to impressive refresh rate, as well as long lasting battery life, security and an excellent experience wrapped up in a stylish design.
The new Galaxy A-series phones are running the latest Android 12 with Samsung’s OneUI 4.1 on-board, with Samsung promising ‘four generations of One UI and Android OS upgrades and up to five years of security updates’.

The phone comes with an IP67 water/dustr resistance rating and is powered by an octa-core processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of on-board storage (with microSD card expansion).

The Galaxy A53 is the headliner for the A-Series launch this year, with Garry McGregor, VP:IT & Mobile at Samsung Electronics Australia describing the A53 priced at $699 as ‘pound for pound one of the best mid-tier devices on the market‘.
