Last month, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A32 5G with a Dimensity 720 processor, a quad-camera setup, and a 5,000mAh battery. Earlier today, the company introduced the 4G variant of the Galaxy A32. One would assume that the 4G variant of the Galaxy A32 would either have similar or slightly weaker specifications than the 5G version, but that would be incorrect.

The Galaxy A32, weirdly, is better than the Galaxy A32 5G in more ways than one. The Galaxy A32 sports a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display with Full HD+ resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate, and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. In comparison, the Galaxy A32 5G uses a 6.5-inch TFT LCD display with HD+ resolution and a 60Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy A32 also beats the Galaxy A32 5G with its in-display fingerprint reader.┬áThe Galaxy A32 (158.9×73.6×8.4mm; 184g) is also smaller and lighter than the Galaxy A32 5G (164.2×76.1×9.1mm; 205g).

In terms of camera hardware, the Galaxy A32 has a 64MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 5MP depth sensor, a 5MP macro camera, and a 20MP selfie camera. The Galaxy A32 5G has a comparatively weaker camera setup, featuring a 48MP primary camera, an 8MP ultrawide camera, a 2MP depth sensor, a 5MP macro camera, and a 13MP selfie camera.

The only aspect where the Galaxy A32 5G is better than the Galaxy A32 is the processing. The Galaxy A32 5G uses the MediaTek Dimensity 720 processor, while the Galaxy A32 settles for the MediaTek Helio G80. Both phones run Android 11 with One UI 3.1 and are powered by a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. You can have a look at the complete specs comparison of the Galaxy A32 and the Galaxy A32 5G in the table below.
