Samsung launched the Galaxy A53 today, and it is a well-specced smartphone for its price. If you are a Galaxy A51 user and are interested to know if the Galaxy A53 is a worthy upgrade to your device, you’ve come to the right place as we’ve decided to compare the features and specifications of both devices.

The Galaxy A53 has a 6.5-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-O display, similar to the Galaxy A51, but the new phone also offers a 120Hz refresh rate and higher peak brightness. So, it will provide a massive jump in performance while scrolling, navigating around the UI, and gaming. Speaking of gaming, the new phone from Samsung is also equipped with the Exynos 1280 chipset, which is a lot faster than the Galaxy A51’s Exynos 9611 processor.

The Galaxy A51 has a 48MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP macro camera, a 5MP depth sensor, and a 32MP front camera. In comparison, the Galaxy A53 uses a much better 64MP primary camera with OIS. Other cameras remain the same. You can expect better images and videos in all lighting conditions.

While the Galaxy A51 will be limited to Android 12-based One UI 4.1, the Galaxy A53 comes pre-installed with Android 12 and One UI 4.1, and it will get four major Android OS updates (up to Android 16).

Samsung’s new phone also features quality-of-life improvements such as an IP67 rating for dust and water resistance, stereo speakers, 5G connectivity, longer battery life (5,000mAh battery vs A51’s 4,500mAh battery), and faster charging (25W).
