- The latest Samsung Galaxy A-series is here, this time with three new models, the A33, A53, and A73. All of the new A-series phones comes with 5G and each built for a different type of user and budget.
We got the chance to take the new Galaxy A73 5G, the mightiest of the latest A-Series and put it through it’s paces and what better way to start it with the unboxing. Let’s get to it so you have a better idea of what you can expect right out of the box if you’re planning or thinking of getting one.
What’s In The Box?
The Galaxy A73 comes accompanied by a charging cable and a SIM ejecting pin. This is pretty much the standard these days as Samsung no longer provides a power brick for charging. But if you have an old charger capable of 25W charging, you can still use it for the A73 5G.
Price and Colours
In Malaysia, the A73 5G would set you back RM 2,099 for the 8GB | 256GB model as it is only available in this one variant spec wise.
We got the White one but the phone is available in 3 colours;
- Awesome Mint
- Awesome Gray
- Awesome White
The A73 5G comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, powered by a Snapdragon 778G 5G (6 nm). Its GPU uses the Adreno 642L and the CPU an Octa-core 4×2.4GHz Kyro 670 & 4×1.8GHz Kyro 670.
Like its A72 predecessor, the A73 comes with a 5,000mAh battery and a microSDXC card slot, allowing for additional storage for those wanting to fully enjoy its powerful main camera.
The phone has a display size of 6.7″ like the previous A72, but the A73 comes with Super AMOLED PLus 120Hz, with a resolution of 1080 x 2400 px, protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass 5 screen.
- Main – 108MP OIS F1.8
Ultra Wide – 12MP F2.2
Depth – 5MP F2.4
Macro – 5MP F2.4
- Front Cam – 32MP F2.2
Video capturing on the main camera goes up to 4K@30 FPS, 1080p@30/60FPS, with GYRO EIS. Whereas the selfie camera provides video capturing up to 4K@30FPS and 1080p@30FPS.
On paper, the A73 5G does look very attractive, with the camera department being the star attraction here along with its 5,000mAh battery life. However, I fully expect more to be revealed about this phone especially with regular daily usage as well pushing it as far as it can go in photography, creative multitasks as well as the gaming side of it.
Stay tuned for more about the Galaxy A73 5G in my full review of the phone in the next few days!
