Samsung expands its local mid-range lineup with the Galaxy A73 5G

Samsung Singapore now has the Galaxy A73 5G available to our local Samsung fans.

Back in March, Samsung announced three mid-range Galaxy A series handsets for 2022 – the Galaxy A73, A53, and A33. The Korean electronics firm promptly brought the latter two mobile phones to our market, opting to leave out the Galaxy A73 5G until now.

Awesome Gray colourway.

It packs four rear cameras like the Galaxy A53 5G, but the Galaxy A73 5G uses a 108MP main shooter instead (f/1.8, OIS). Galaxy A73 5G also has a bigger display (6.7-inch Super AMOLED with 120Hz refresh rate), and a better processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G 5G).

It is otherwise similar to its lower-tiered Galaxy A53 5G, touting the same 5,000mAh battery capacity, 25W fast-charging, One UI 4.1 interface (based on Android 12), 5G connectivity, IP67 water resistance, and expandable memory (up to 1TB via MicroSD card). 

Awesome Mint colourway.

Notably, the Galaxy A73 5G comes pretty close to Samsung’s better-known Galaxy S series, since the Galaxy A73 5G covers all the basic phone features. For example, even the regular Galaxy S22 doesn’t have a big 6.7-inch display, a 108MP primary camera, a big 5,000mAh battery, or expandable storage. But, you’re still getting a better processor, a better display, and better IP-rated water resistance on the Galaxy S22.

Awesome White colourway.
