Samsung Galaxy A73 leaked renders reveal little design change from its predecessor
Samsung has some big plans for its Galaxy A series! The Korean company already announced the Galaxy A13 in the US - and it’s Samsung’s cheapest 5G phone. Moving up the line, the Galaxy A33 will receive a water resistance rating making it one of the cheapest smartphones sporting this feature.

Now, after weeks of leaks and rumors, some Galaxy A73 renders have emerged from the deepest and darkest cyber lairs. The leaked renders are courtesy of OnLeaks and Zoutons and give us a look at the design of the next-generation upper midrange Samsung phone.

For better or for worse, the overall design of the Galaxy A73 seems practically unchanged from its predecessor. The camera bump on the back retains its place and shape, sadly there’s no S21-like redesign in that area.

The hole-punch camera on the front also occupies the same central spot as the selfie of the A72, and the bezels around the 6.7-inch display also look very similar to the last-generation device.

  • Display: 6.7-inch Full-HD+ (1080x2400 pixels) Super AMOLED 20:9, 393ppi, 90Hz
  • Processor: Snapdragon 750G

  • Battery: 5,000mAh, 33W fast charging
  • Dimensions: 163.8 x 76 x 9.6mm
  • Price: Around $499
  • Misc: IP67 rating, no 3.5mm jack, plastic body

Samsung Galaxy A73 leaks and rumors so far


The Galaxy A series is starting to get the same rumor mill treatment as its bigger S-branded siblings. Even though most of the sources claim that the Galaxy A73 will feature a Snapdragon 750G chipset, there’s an interesting rumor that the phone will make use of the Samsung and AMD partnership and come with a trimmed-down version of the Exynos 2200, featuring only two high-performance cores.

Back in October, another leak suggested that Samsung might switch to a Chinese OLED manufacturer for the screen of the Galaxy A73 with BOE and CSOT being the potential candidates for the contract.

The camera situation is the most exciting so far - it seems that the Galaxy A73 will sport Samsung’sISOCELL HM2 108-megapixel sensor. This sensor will bring the A-series to a whole new level, as it’s the highest resolution main camera in the current lineup, S-series devices included. There will also be OIS on board on the main camera, so the device is shaping out to be a great camera phone.

There's still a remote possibility that Samsung might opt for the 50MP GN2 sensor instead, and it won't be that big of a downgrade. The GN2 features much larger pixels than the 108MP sensor, and would potentially result in better low-light shots. There were also rumors that the Galaxy A73 will get the 108MP sensor straight from the S21 family, as Samsung is planning to update the main camera in its flagship phones and a move to the next generation of this 108MP sensor with the Galaxy S22.

Samsung Galaxy A73 release date


The Galaxy A73 official launch seems to be imminent - various sources point toward a December announcement, with dates as early as 20th. Some sites cite December 31st as a potential release date.
