The Samsung Galaxy A53 and its variants may launch in the Philippines as rumoured model numbers appear on Samsung Philippines’ website.

A downgrade of the Galaxy A52s with a weaker processor and a lack of headphone jack.

It’s been a while since the release of the A52, A52 5G, and A52s 5G. The first of which we have reviewed already. (There’s also a video coming up as soon as we’re done with the editing. To give you a hint, it’s going to be around 30 minutes long as it is HIGHLY DETAILED). Now, Samsung has listed the Galaxy A53 5G on the Philippines website prior to its launch.

The CTECC (China Telecoms Equipment Communication Center) as well as Thailand’s Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (BTC) has certified Samsung phones with model numbers SM-A536B, SM-A536E, and SM-A5360. These numbers are clearly the Samsung Galaxy A53 and its variants, possibly the A53s and the A53 Pro as there are no hints stating the A53 would get a 4G version.

Renders of the A53 from and OnLeaks have surfaced online giving us a glimpse of what the phone may look like officially. In terms of design, it’s heavily identical to the previous handset just with a lack of a headphone jack and an Exynos 1200 chip. Another difference is that the back is now even flatter and does not curve around the edges.

The phone allegedly improves from its predecessors by having a 120Hz FHD+ AMOLED screen with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Like the previous handsets, it would have 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage. However, the front camera’s resolution has been seriously reduced to 12mp instead of 32mp found on the previous handsets. The main camera will be composed of a 64mp main, 32mp secondary (possibly ultrawide), and a 5mp third camera. As mentioned, it may use the Samsung Exynos 1200 chip. There are no other variants announced.

Model numbers SM-A536B/DS and SM-A536E/DS have appeared on Samsung Philippines’ website, making their release more likely to arrive.

As these are just rumours for now, please take the specs with some level of doubt and wait until Samsung actually announces it along with variants, price, and internal configurations.
