MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, March17, 2022(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In a release issued under the same headline earlier today by Samsung Canada, please note that in the Canadian Availability section, the product link was incorrect. The corrected release follows:
Samsung Electronics Canada today announced the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy A53 5G, expanding access to innovative Galaxy technology at an affordable price point. Fully loaded with AI camera experiences, an expansive and smooth display and two-day battery life1, Galaxy A53 5G is designed to power your every moment whether you are working, learning, creating or exploring. With 5G network access2, defense-grade security, seamless connectivity and an eco-conscious, stylish and slim design, Galaxy A53 5G delivers new ways to create, connect and thrive.
“We believe everyone deserves the opportunity to experience the positive impact mobile technology can have on their lives,” said TM Roh, President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ MX (Mobile eXperience) Business. “With the latest Galaxy A series release, we’re making it easier than ever to enjoy Galaxy’s advanced, innovative mobile experience at a great value.”
Capture an Awesome Shot in Any SituationWhether creating content or sharing it with friends, Galaxy A53 5G is packed with many of the powerful and fun features from the Galaxy S series for next-level camera experiences. Galaxy A53 5G’s quad-camera system features a 64MP OIS Camera with VDIS technology, paired with a high-resolution 32MP front camera for crisp and steady shots every time.
Fueled by a brand new 5nm processor, Galaxy A53 5G’s innovative AI-powered camera makes images look awesome – even in low light. Improved Night mode automatically synthesizes up to 12 images at once so night photos look bright with less noise. When shooting video in low-light environments, Galaxy A53 5G’s framerate automatically adjusts for bright, clear videos.
The enhanced Portrait mode captures impressive depth and subject outlines with dual cameras and powerful AI. Moments can also be amplified with Fun mode, delivering playful filters and effects that now work with the Ultra-wide lens. Plus, Photo Remaster breathes new life into old and low quality photos, and Object Eraser removes pesky photo bombers in the background.
Maximize Viewing ExperiencesIn the past, a sunny day could make it hard to see your smartphone’s screen, but with the intelligent algorithm on Galaxy A53 5G, you can view your favourite content in vivid detail – even outside. The expansive 6.5-inch3Super AMOLED display also offers a 120Hz refresh rate for immersive viewing experiences. Plus, Galaxy A53 5G is now equipped with up to two-day battery4life and 25W Super Fast Charging5– so watching, streaming and more can last even longer.
Beautiful, Durable, Purposeful DesignExpertly crafted to be fashionable, functional, and sustainable, Galaxy A53 5G’s slim bezel and Ambient Edge design seamlessly blends the camera with the body of the phone to create a smooth, stylish look. Galaxy A53 5G also delivers enhanced durability thanks to Tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 and IP676water and dust resistance for added peace of mind.
Samsung has always challenged what’s possible with technology and will continue to rethink how best to use the planet’s resources. Announced in August 2021 with Galaxy for the Planet, Samsung is committed to delivering tangible environmental actions to help make the planet healthier by 2025. Building on sustainability efforts, Galaxy A53 5G removes the charger plug and has reduced packaging.
