Samsung Galaxy A33: Release date, price and specs
Samsung’s Galaxy A33 is expected soon and despite the low price, the budget phone could arrive with 5G, water resistance and more premium features.
Samsung The next budget smartphone is coming soon and the Galaxy A33 seems to be packed with cutting-edge technology at an affordable price. For a few hundred bucks, a brand new phone with an updated processor and improved cameras always sounds great, and the latest model isn’t likely to disappoint. Although the Galaxy A33 hasn’t been officially announced, rumors suggest it’s only a few weeks away, and photos and specs have already leaked.
Samsung’s flagship phones are well known. The Z Flip 3 and Z Fold 3 have a remarkable ability to fold in half and unfold to double width, respectively. The other flagship series, Samsung’s Galaxy S, features high-end camera arrays with an incredible 100x hybrid zoom. Featuring blazing-fast Qualcomm Snapdragon processors, Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection, and bright, high-resolution displays with 120Hz refresh rates, these are dream phones. The only downside is cost, and many buyers can’t afford or even don’t want to spend $1,000 or more on a smartphone. Fortunately, Samsung also makes high-quality phones for less than $400. While they’re not as glitzy as the headline-grabbing Z and S ranges, they’re still great phones.
Samsung’s Galaxy A33 is expected to arrive soon, having received FCC certification in January, as reported GSM Arena. Samsung’s Galaxy A32 was launched in January 2021, but fans are still waiting for its successor, which might show up at the Awesome Unpacked 2022 event. It seems late March is the most likely time for the Galaxy announcement A33. Photos leaked on Twitter by OnLeaks as of November 2021, and while the Galaxy A32 was available in standard and 5G versions, it is expected that the Galaxy A33 will only be available with 5G. Of course, that makes sense with 5G being more widespread now.
Samsung Galaxy A33 Price and Specs
Samsung’s Galaxy A33 is rumored to offer a 6.4-inch screen. Although slightly smaller than the 6.5-inch size of the A32 5G, it could feature a higher resolution display and AMOLED. That would be a big step forward, if true, delivering a brighter, more vivid and crisper display. Although the processor is currently unknown, a mid-range MediaTek chip is likely. A 5,000mAh capacity battery and an improved quad-camera array are expected, so no big changes there. It could also put it in the $350-$400 price bracket, keeping the phone a very affordable option.
Another interesting rumor suggests that the Galaxy A33 will not have a headphone jack. Although it may be missed by some users, it provides a greater opportunity for water resistance. An IP rating of 67 is expected which would be great news, potentially extending the life of the phone. Samsung recently improved its image processing software for its flagship devices, and the Galaxy A33 could also benefit from some of these upgrades.
