With the launch of the 2023 Galaxy A-series, what’s notable is that there’s no Galaxy A74–the top-end model this time is the Galaxy A54. We are still hoping for a Galaxy A74, but the Galaxy M54 that was revealed by Samsung Saudi Arabia online MIGHT be the closest thing we have.
The Galaxy M54 is also powered by an Exynos 1380 and is also paired with 8GB RAM and up to 256GB storage. It has a bigger 6.7-inch 120hz Super AMOLED display with a punch-hole for a 32-megapixel camera, but it appears to use a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead of an in-display one.
It also borrows the same Galaxy S23 design language that Samsung appears to be using across all of its 2023 phones. The triple rear camera setup carries a 108-megapixel main camera with OIS, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. Unlike the Galaxy A54, the M54 carries a huge 6000mAh battery inside while still supporting 25w wired charging.
The Galaxy M54 has a plastic back and no IP rating, though the front display is protected by Gorilla Glass 5. The Galaxy M54 does come with Android 13-based OneUI 5.1, though Samsung did not disclose how many updates it will receive.
There is no pricing yet for the Galaxy M54, but we expect Samsung to give it an under Php 30k price tag if it makes it to the Philippines. For context, the Galaxy M53 is priced at Php 27k at launch.
