When did the Samsung a54 come out?

Everyone is asking this question. Well, Samsung has not officially announced any release date. But, experienced leakers are pretty much confident about the early launch of Galaxy A54 5G. Let’s look into their calculation.

Both the Galaxy A52 and Galaxy A53 5G came on March 17th, 2021 and 2022 respectively. Based on these release dates, Leakers Assume that Galaxy A54 5G comes in March 2023.

How much is Samsung Galaxy A54 in the USA?

We all know Samsung’s Galaxy A series has been popular all over the globe for its affordable price. The Galaxy A series has always been a midrange handset. So, I expect even this time upcoming Galaxy A54 will be budget friendly Samsung Handset.

If we judge the price of the last three generations of the Galaxy A5x series, given below, we can conclude.

Samsung’s  Galaxy A51- USA Price– $399
Samsung’s Galaxy A52 – USA Price– $499
Samsung’s  Galaxy A52s 5G –USA Price– $499
Samsung Galaxy A53 5G – USA Price– $449

So, we can conclude that it is very much likely for Samsung to market the base model of Galaxy A54 5G at $499 in the USA.

Well, it’s a guess. Also, you cannot expect anything but 6GB Ram & 128GB internal memory at this price.

Samsung Galaxy A54 5G design:

The design of the “Galaxy A54 “ is pretty much familiar with a set of triple rear cameras, thin bezels, and a centre-positioned selfie camera in a punch-hole at the front. The rear triple camera does not sit flush with the back of the phone, rather slightly protruding. As per “OnLeaks”, there will be an in-screen fingerprint sensor. It is expected to have a “Power-Button” and “Volume controllerbuttons on the right side. Like its predecessor, Galaxy A53, Speaker, microphone, and USB Type-C port are placed at the top. While the secondary microphone and SIM-Ejector tray are placed at the bottom. Samsung has placed its “Logo” at the back with the “Led” flash and “triple” cameras.

The “OnLeaks” says Galaxy A54 gets a “6.4” inches display. Though, many experts say the display size will be 6.6 inches. The display is expected to be a super “AMOLED” display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The Samsung A54 may measure roughly 158.3 x 76.7 x 8.2mm, says the “OnLeaks”. The others experts and leakers are silent regarding the handset’sdimensions and weight.

Samsung Galaxy A54 5G Performance:

Regarding the performance, GeekBench gave us important clues. We can be sure that Samsung is going to unveil the successor of “Galaxy A53”, as it is the GeekBench’s database where the news has surfaced.

The prototype has managed to get 776 (GeekBench single-core score) and a stunning 2599 (GeekBench multi-core score). I think it is pretty much impressive for a “midrange” smartphone. As per “GeekBench”, Samsung is going to use the S5E8835 chipset. I think it is the successor of “Exynos 1280”, a fair chance to be officially named “Exynos 1380”. This chipset is combined with an “Octa-Core” processor, codenamed “S5E8835” in the GeekBench database. The “Octa-Core” processor has a “4” Plus “4” configuration.“Four” of the “Eight” cores have been clocked at “2.40Ghz”, certainly it’s the performance core. The rest, the remaining 4 cores, cores seem to be the “Efficiency core as reported to have clocked at 2.0 GHz.

Also, GeekBench has given clues about the “RAM”. The Galaxy A54 may have two variants, one with a 6GB RAM option and the other with 8GB RAM.

Samsung will use Android 13, certainly with the One UI skin top, to run the Galaxy A54 5G.

The handset is expected to power with a 5000mAh battery.

The GeekBench says that the Samsung A54 will be packed with 25W fast charging.

Well, I do not guarantee that all the speculation will prove true. We have to wait a couple of weeks more to find the facts and figures. But, I can assure you that if you are looking for a midrange, budget-friendly Samsung handset with 5G enabled, Samsung A54 is the best one to grab. The Galaxy A5x series got a proven track record. This time also, Samsung A54 not going to disappoint us.
