What you need to know

  • Alleged renders of the Samsung Galaxy A33 5G have leaked.
  • The renders reveal an Infinity-U display and a quad-camera setup on the back.
  • They also suggest the phone will not include a headphone jack.

The first CAD-based renders of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy A53 5G surfaced online last week, revealing a familiar design. Reliable leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer (@OnLeaks) has now partnered with 91Mobiles to publish CAD renders of the Galaxy A33 5G.

The leaked renders reveal a flat display with a U-shaped notch at the top for the selfie camera. On the back of the phone will be a quad-camera setup, similar to the one on the Galaxy A53 5G. Disappointingly, the renders also suggest the Galaxy A32 successor will not have a 3.5mm headphone jack. The move doesn't come as a surprise, however, since none of Samsung's best Android phones include the analog port.

The Galaxy A33 5G is rumored to sport a 6.4-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution. Like the Galaxy A53, it looks like Samsung won't be launching a 4G variant of the Galaxy A33.

In addition to the Galaxy A33 5G, Samsung is also said to be working on an entry-level 5G phone called the Galaxy A13 5G. It is rumored to feature a 6.48-inch HD+ display and MediaTek's Dimensity 700 chipset. According to tipster @TheGalox, the phone will also include a triple-lens camera system featuring a 50MP main sensor, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 5000mAh battery with 25W charging.

The Galaxy A33 5G is expected to be launched sometime early next year, along with a few other 2022 Galaxy A-series devices.

  • No headphone jack no go with me and some of my friends.
  • Were you going to buy such a low end phone anyway? No phone has ever had a headphone jack. The thing you stick in the hole is the jack. Some tech article got it wrong then the rest of the world just copied them :/
  • I feel like these "no go" posts are bots at this point ..even if they're not lol
  • The headphone port has stuck around in budget phones due to the cost of bluetooth earbuds.
  • That's a big NO GO for me as well.
  • In an interesting plot twist, old school wired headphones are now a trend.
  • Just bought the Samsung A52s 5G. Comes with headphone jack. Nice phone apart from the default way of powering the phone off. Thank God it's changeable.
