Samsung made an impression on January 14 with the Galaxy S21 series, but the brand still has other cards to destroy. It has just lifted the veil on the Galaxy A32 5G , a mid-range device that aims to make 5G more accessible.
Last week, the South Korean giant therefore introduced its new series of flagships, a series made up of three separate devices: a Galaxy S21, a Galaxy S21 + and a Galaxy S21 Ultra.
Quite different from each other, they have the particularity of offering compatibility with 5G. However, their price remains high and not everyone will be able to benefit from their services.
The Galaxy A32 5G, a device with an attractive price / quality ratio
To help democratize 5G, Samsung is therefore back with a new device positioned at a slightly more measured price: the Galaxy A32 5G. Device priced at £ 249, or around € 281 using the conversion rates currently in effect. Conversion rates obviously do not take into account the taxes applicable in each market – by which means that the Galaxy A32 5G may cost a little more in France.
But what to expect for this price? Samsung started out on a fairly basic technical sheet. The Galaxy A32 5G is therefore equipped with a 6.5-inch Infinity-V screen, a screen unfortunately limited to a definition in HD + and therefore to 720p arranged. To animate it, the choice of the brand fell on a SoC clocked at 2 GHz and coupled with 4 GB of RAM.
The storage reaches 128 GB and there is also a very nice 5000 mAh battery. If the intention is laudable, it should nevertheless be noted that the latter is confined to a 15 W fast charge. It will therefore take a few hours to restore color.
A well-balanced technical sheet and a complete photo module
Samsung has been quite generous on the photographic side with a module made up of four sensors. More precisely, a 48 mpx main sensor accompanied by a wide angle opening at f / 1.8, an 8 mpx sensor associated with an ultra wide angle opening at f / 2.2, a macro sensor of 5 million pixels and a last dedicated sensor the calculation of the depth of field, to generate beautiful background blurs. The front camera reaches 13 million pixels and it comes with a wide angle opening at f / 2.2.
The Galaxy A32 5G does not ignore the fingerprint reader. The coin is mounted on the edge of the telephone.
The look is pretty cool. Samsung left on a clean note that gives the phone a certain flair. Unsurprisingly, the Infinity-V screen requires, a notch is present, but it takes the shape of a drop of water and it will therefore be quite discreet. The chin, on the other hand, is a little more conspicuous, and it must be recognized that this breaks the lines of the telephone a bit.
Four colors to choose from
Still, at this price, the Galaxy A32 5G should meet with some success. At least among fans of the brand. The others will undoubtedly go to Xiaomi more willingly, whose Redmi Note 9T – also compatible with 5G – is offered at € 50 cheaper. And this even if the latter does not go so far in the field of photography. It is indeed limited to three sensors at the rear, with a main one of 48 million pixels and two of 2 million pixels for the macro and the depth of field.
The Galaxy A32 5G will be available in several colors. It will be possible to take it in black, white, blue and purple.
