Samsung has released the latest version of its popular mid-range smartphone, the Galaxy A54. The new phone looks similar to its predecessor, but there are a few key differences.
The A54 starts at €500, which is slightly higher than the launch price of the A53 5G. However, the prices of Samsung phones tend to drop quickly, so it's likely that the A54 will be available for less than €500 in a few months.
The A54 has a slightly smaller screen than the A53 5G, but it's also heavier. This is likely due to the new Exynos 1380 chipset, which is more powerful than the Exynos 1280 in the A53 5G.
The A54 also has a new camera design. The triple camera system on the back is now headlined by a 50MP unit, instead of the 64MP unit on the A53 5G. The ultrawide and macro cameras appear to be unchanged.
The A54 has the same IP67 dust and water resistance rating as the A53 5G. It also has stereo speakers and a microSD card slot.
The A54's retail package is barebones, just like last year's model. The only accessories you get are a SIM eject tool and a USB-C cable.
The Samsung Galaxy A54 is a solid mid-range smartphone. It has a good display, a powerful chipset, and a versatile camera system. However, the price is a bit high, and the design is not as unique as some other mid-range phones.
The Galaxy A54 is expected to receive four years of Android updates and five years of security updates. This is one of the longest software support policies in the industry.
The A54 is also available in a 5G variant. The 5G model is slightly more expensive than the 4G model, but it offers faster data speeds.
If you're looking for a mid-range smartphone with a good display, a powerful chipset, and a versatile camera system, the Samsung Galaxy A54 is a good option to consider. However, if you're on a tight budget, there are other mid-range phones available that offer better value for money.
