Samsung's offering a new Galaxy A53 5G

Android.  You have options.

That's my unofficial slogan.

And in offering more options Samsung's just launched the Galaxy A53 5G.  Not everybody needs to drop over $1000 for the latest flagship.

The new phone will sell for $589CDN and is ready for preorder on April 1st.

Here's what the phone gets you:

  • 6.5" @ 2400x1080 @ 120Hz
  • octacore (2.4GHz / 2.0GHz)
  • 6GB RAM
  • 128GB storage
  • Rear camera
    • 64MP (f/1.8, 26mm, 1/1.7", 0.8µm)
    • 12MP (f/2.2, 123°, 1.12µm)
    • 5MP (f/2.4)
    • 5MP (depth sensor, f/2.4)
  • Selfie camera
    • 32MP (f/2.2, 26mm, 1/2.8", 0.8µm)
  • 5000mAh

Not bad specs overall, good battery, storage and decent camera specs - just wish it had Qi myself and if I knew what processor...
