Samsung Galaxy A33 5G review

Samsung's Galaxy A mid-range

Samsung's Galaxy A mid-range lineup has undergone its yearly refresh, and it's looking really good.

The Waterproofed League

The Galaxy A33 5G has been promoted to the waterproofed league, and it now features the same IP67-rated ingress protection treatment as the higher tier models.

90Hz Super AMOLED screen

The Galaxy A33 is keeping the 90Hz Super AMOLED screen of the Galaxy A32, but it employs a much more powerful Exynos 1280 chipset with a newer processor and gaming-friendly graphics.

48MP Primary Features

The camera has been improved, too. Now the 48MP primary features optical stabilization and supports up to 4K video capturing.

25W Wired Charging.

And finally, but not of least importance, the Galaxy A33 now supports faster 25W wired charging.
