Samsung launched the Galaxy A73 5G alongside the Galaxy A33 5G and the Galaxy A53 5G earlier this year. All three phones came running Android 12-based One UI 4.1 out of the box. The company announced that it would release up to four Android OS updates to these phones, which means they will get the Android 16 update sometime in the future.

The phones will also get up to five years of security updates, which is among the best in the Android segment. However, after a couple of years, security updates won't come every month. All three phones feature OIS for the primary camera, high-refresh-rate OLED screens, an IP67 rating, stereo speakers, 6nm or better processors, and 25W fast wired charging.
