Samsung has been teasing the release of the Galaxy M53 in India for some time now and now the handset is finally official. The phone will be available for purchase through Amazon.in and Samsung.com.
The device runs on the Dimensity 900 SoC paired with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The display is particularly impressive for its class – 6.7-inch Super AMOLED+ with 1080 x 2408px resolution and support for 120Hz refresh rate.
Interestingly enough, the fingerprint reader is placed on the side of the frame, not under the display. Having a side-mounted fingerprint reader on a phone with an OLED display is a rare sighting.
The camera setup is also more than decent. The main camera is 108MP, f/1.8 joined by the standard 8MP, f/2.2 ultrawide unit and two more 2MP sensors – one is used for macro shots while the other is for depth sensing. The punch-hole on the display is reserved for a 32MP, f/2.2 shooter.
All that hardware draws power from a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 25W fast charging, presumably over the Power Delivery 3.0 standard. The phone comes with One UI 4.1 pre-installed on top of Android 12.
The Galaxy M53 is available in two colors Blue and Green. The 6GB configuration starts at INR 26,499, but early bird buyers can get one for INR 23,999. The 8GB version, on the other hand, will sell for INR 25,999 in the beginning and will ask INR 28,499 later on. The actual sales begin on April 29.
