With the flagship range already launched, it’s only a matter of weeks before Samsung also unveils the Galaxy A family, with the Galaxy A34 and Galaxy A54 series in the starring role.
Expected to feature 5G connectivity, the new models already have teaser images and unofficial spec lists. Thus, the Galaxy A34 looks like it will be much closer to the top-spec A54 than the current A33-A53 pair, with the main difference being the screen replacing the centrally applied perforation with a less elegant “Infinity-U” cutout. Viewed from the back, the phone will display the same design with individually delineated photo lenses, leaving little to differentiate the “poor man’s” model from the version aimed at mid-budget buyers.
The Galaxy A34 will be released in one version, with 5G. The new smartphone comes in a case measuring 161.3 x 77.7 x 8.2 mm, appearing noticeably larger than the previous model. The screen combines FHD+ resolution with an increased diagonal to 6.6 inches (up from 6.4 inches for the A33). In contrast, the Galaxy A54 will have a 6.4-inch screen, with perforation applied centrally. Both models are expected to use Super AMOLED panels with 120Hz refresh rate.
The Galaxy A34 5G comes with the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset, in a 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB + microSD slot configuration. The Galaxy A54 5G gets the more powerful Exynos 1380 solution, in the 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB internal storage + microSD formulation.
Both models will have 5000mAh battery and 25W fast charging. The list of features is completed with dual-SIM support, GPS receiver, Bluetooth 5.2, NFC, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack (A34 only) and WiFi-6 (A54 only), fingerprint reader, stereo speakers, and an IP67-certified case for water and dust resistance.
The Galaxy A34 could be priced at €400, while the Galaxy A54 could cost €500.
