We’ve been hearing about three 5G-connected Galaxy mid-rangers since late 2021, but not one of them has been made official yet. The good news is that they haven’t been canceled as they were just listed by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).
The three devices have the following model numbers: SM-M336BU/DS, SM-A336E/DS and SM-A536E/DS. As you may have guessed, these are dual-SIM versions of the Galaxy M33 5G, A33 5G and A53 5G.
The M33 has been spotted running Geekbench with on an Exynos 1200 chipset. The A53 will allegedly use the same chip in some regions and a Snapdragon in others. However, rumors of the impending reveal of the 1200 chip never panned out and it’s not clear if and how that may have affected Samsung’s launch plans.
Anyway, the Galaxy A53 5G will be a well-specced mid-ranger with a 120 Hz OLED display, a 64 MP quad camera. There will be no 3.5 mm headphone jack on this one, however, have a look at the speculative renders yourself.
The Galaxy A33 5G will have a 6.4” 1080p+ Super AMOLED display, a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 15W charging. And it will have a headphone jack, you can check out renders of the phone here. The A33 and A53 are expected in four colors: Black, White, Light Blue and Orange. The Galaxy M33 5G will have a larger 6,000 mAh battery.
Speculative renders: Samsung Galaxy A33 5G • Samsung Galaxy A53 5G
We still don’t know when these three models will be unveiled. Samsung will be busy with the Galaxy S22 and Tab S8 launches in early February, so the three mid-rangers may squeak in before that.
