Going by the previous trend of Samsung’s mid-range smartphones, the company could launch its new generation devices early next year. The devices usually bagged the necessary certification two months prior to their launch. To throw a few names in, the Galaxy A52 5G picked up 3C certification in January 2021 and was launched in March 2021. Similarly, the Galaxy A53 5G got 3C certified in January 2022 and was launched in March.
So, putting all this together, it seems like we are inching closer to the launch of the Galaxy A54 5G (and most probably the Galaxy A74 5G). The Galaxy A54 5G has received 3C certification in China and could go official by January 2023, two months earlier than its predecessors. Interestingly, it will be among the very few Galaxy A-series devices to be sold in China.
The certification database reveals that the Chinese version of the device carries model number SM-A5460 (via TechGoing). The listing reveals that the upcoming Galaxy A54 5G may support 25W fast charging, similar to its predecessors. The device could run Android 13 out of the box and come with support for up to four Android OS updates (up to Android 17).
According to previous rumors, the Galaxy A54 5G will feature a downgraded camera resolution than the Galaxy A53 5G. Notably, it will come with a 50MP primary camera and miss out on the depth sensor (which is a good thing?). In the battery department, the Galaxy A54 is set to receive a boost of 100mAh compared to the Galaxy A53 5G and will pack a 5,100 mAh battery.
Information regarding the chipset and everything else has been kept under wraps. But it won’t take long for that information to come out.
