The Galaxy A53 5G is one of the best mid-range smartphones on the market, offering a good enough configuration for most use cases at an affordable price. Overall, the “A5X” model is the best-selling of Samsung’s offerings in Western countries, and now that we’re gearing up for a new generation, the A54 5G is sure to be among the most sought-after next year. Apparently a prototype of the next model has already been tested with GeekBench, with it already listed in the benchmark’s database.
Galaxy A54 won’t be a major upgrade in raw performance
New Galaxy A models generally launch in the spring, so Samsung should be in the final stages of development for the most important mid-range model in its portfolio. The Galaxy A54 in its as-yet-unfinished variant scored less than impressive in the GeekBench test, but in line with expectations for a phone that will most likely sell for around €300.
The Single-Core score is 766 points, and the Multi-Core score is 2,599 points, which is almost exactly half the score of a flagship at the moment. The truth is, however, that the top phones on the market offer more performance than most users would need, so we can expect a good user experience from the Galaxy A54 5G.
This year’s Galaxy A53 was based on Samsung’s mid-range Exynos 1280 processor, which proved to be a bit slow in real-world use, though it was decent in synthetic tests. This model uses an S5-E8835 processor, which seems to be the hater of this model, probably called the Exynos 1380. It uses an octa-core configuration with four cores performing at 2.4GHz and another four efficient at 2GHz, with a Mali-G68 GPU and benefits from 6 or 8GB of RAM. Rumors talk about a phone with a 5,100 mAh battery, 50 MP main camera and a 6.4″ screen at 120 Hz.
The model tested with GeekBench runs Android 13, most likely with OneUI 5.0. Since Samsung is offering four system updates, we can expect to see Android 17 on this model as well when this version launches.
