Samsung is preparing to launch its next generation of Galaxy A series phones. The company has already launched the Galaxy A04 series in various markets including India. Samsung is expected to launch more devices like Galaxy A14 series, Galaxy A24, Galaxy A34, etc. Usually, the Galaxy A7X series is the most premium in the lineup. Samsung’s current flagship of the Galaxy A series is the Galaxy A73 5G. The Samsung Galaxy A74 5G was expected to be in the works for its launch early next year. However, a new report suggests otherwise.
According to a new report, Samsung may not launch the Galaxy A74 5G at all. In fact, the Galaxy Club claims that Samsung will not launch any phones as part of the A7x series in the future. According to the report, the Galaxy A54 will be Samsung’s highest-end Galaxy A-series for at least the next year.
Why Samsung May Not Pursue Plans for Galaxy A7x Series
No particular reason was given as to why the Galaxy A7x series should be shut down. Samsung also hasn’t launched the Galaxy A73 5G in as many countries compared to the Galaxy A72. Also, there are no reports of the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE or Galaxy S23 FE launching next year. As a result, there remains a huge price gap between the top-of-the-line Galaxy A-series and the baseline Galaxy S-series, Samsung’s flagship smartphone offering.
The company has not confirmed any details. Therefore, we advise taking the leaked details with caution. As of now, the Galaxy A73 5G remains the last phone in the Galaxy A7x series in Samsung’s portfolio. Of course, that only applies if Samsung decides to revive the top model.
The company hasn’t launched the successor to the Galaxy A82 either. As such, the company could be considering downsizing the lineup and keeping its portfolio a bit slimmer.
The Galaxy A73 5G was launched in early March this year. It came with a premium price of Rs 41,999 in India. The phone launched with 8GB RAM by default and offered 128GB and 256GB storage options. The latter would cost Rs 44,999 in India.
For the price, users got a large 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen had a punched-out top and was equipped with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The Galaxy A73 5G also packs a Snapdragon 778G processor and a hefty 5000mAh battery. It supports 25W fast charging, but there is no charger in the box.
On the rear, the phone offers a quad-camera setup with a 108-megapixel main camera sensor, the first in the company’s A series. There’s also a 12MP ultrawide camera, as well as dual 5MP sensors for depth-sensing and macro photography. The device comes with a 32MP front camera.
Samsung launched the phone with Android out of the box. It had a layer of One UI 4.1 on top. However, in different markets, the phone has already received the latest One UI 5.0 based on Android 13. What do you think of the Galaxy A74 5G? Let us know in the comments below.
