Samsung may drop its most advanced Galaxy A model

When it comes to the Galaxy A series of mid-range phones, the past few years have seen two favourite options emerge – the Galaxy A3x and Galaxy A5x, with fewer and fewer buyers turning to the premium mid-range alternative.

Significantly more expensive than the more compact and nearly as high-performing A53 alternative, the Galaxy A73 may not have a sequel next year, with sources close to the South Korean manufacturer appearing to confirm this hypothesis. For now, the only certainty is the suspicious absence of the A74 from the usual stream of rumours that have already delivered key details about other models in the series, such as the Galaxy A14 5G, Galaxy A24, Galaxy A34 5G and Galaxy A54. In contrast, the Galaxy A74 does not appear to be ready in any of Samsung’s partner factories.

If the suspicion holds true, then dropping the A74 could also be bad news for Samsung fans who were just waiting for the A54. Becoming the new top of the range, the Galaxy A54 could be expensive without getting the expected Galaxy A74 features, with Samsung just taking advantage of the much higher popularity of this model. By taking the Galaxy A74 out of the catalogue, Samsung could also make the current Galaxy S22 series, whose sales haven’t been that great so far, more attractive.

As for the new flagship Galaxy A54, it’s expected to feature a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and improved in-display fingerprint sensor. The camera setup will be centered around a 50MP main camera with optical stabilization, seconded by a 12MP ultrawide camera.

Major improvements are also expected on the front camera. With 32MP resolution and support for 4K shooting, it will feature optical image stabilisation (OIS) for the first time.

Performance will be provided by the Exynos 1380 chipset, equipped with four high-performance cores (only two in the predecessor Exynos 1280) and a much more powerful Mali-G68 GPU. The list of features is completed with 5G connectivity, GPS, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.3, NFC and USB Type-C, stereo speakers, a 5100 mAh battery with fast charging and an IP68-certified casing protected against water and dust ingress.
