Samsung’s Galaxy A series of phones are great. Typically, the A-series phones take some of the best features from the Galaxy S line and put them in a more affordable package. This is true for the new phones, too.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy A53 5G and the Galaxy A73 5G, which follow the Galaxy A52s 5G, the A52 5G, and the Galaxy A72. The Galaxy A33 5G is very similar to the Galaxy A53 5G, and it has a similar screen.
If you want to find out everything you need to know about the very quiet Samsung Galaxy A73 5G, this is the place to start.
Release date and price
- Announced 17 March 2022
- Available 22 April 2022
- Price TBC
Samsung held a Galaxy A event on March 17, 2022, where a lot of new devices were shown off. Among them were the Galaxy A53 5G and the Galaxy A33 5G. Samsung didn’t show off the Galaxy A73 5G on stage, but the company did mention it at the bottom of a press release and on its newsroom.
Samsung hasn’t said how much the Galaxy A73 5G will cost yet, but it did say that it will be available in “select markets” on April 22, which is the same day. We don’t know what the select markets are right now, but we’ll keep this feature up to date when we learn more.
- 163.7 x 76.1 x 7.6mm, 181g
- Black, white and sage
In terms of looks, the Samsung Galaxy A73 and the Galaxy A53 5G are very close. It has a flat screen with a punch-hole camera at the top, very thin bezels around the screen, and a quad-camera on the back with three big lenses and one small lens.
This model has a plastic frame, a “glasstic” rear, and the camera housing is a single piece that doesn’t wrap around the frame as the S22 model does. The phone’s housing does blend in smoothly with the back of the phone, giving it a clean look. Read also; Snapdragon Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is way better than the Exynos

It has a Full HD+ resolution, and as we said before, it has a flat-screen.
