As it makes 5G phones accessible to everyone, Samsung announced an even more affordable 5G phone with the Galaxy A32 in Europe. Even more affordable than the Galaxy A42 5G that was announced late last year, the Galaxy A32 gets a smaller 6.5-inch HD+ display that uses a TFT panel instead of AMOLED. Because of that, you get a side-mounted fingerprint scanner instead.
Samsung Galaxy A32 5G Specs:
- Dimensity 720 processor
- 4GB RAM
- 64GB/128GB storage
- 6.5-inch TFT display, HD+ resolution
- 48-megapixel main camera with PDAF, 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 5-megapixel macro camera, 2-megapixel depth sensor
- 13-megapixel f/2.2 selfie camera
- 4G, LTE
- WiFi, Bluetooth, side-mounted fingerprint scanner
- 5000mAh battery
- 15w fast charging
- Android 11, OneUI 3.0
Powering the Galaxy A32 is a Dimensity 720 processor that is paired with 4GB RAM and 64GB/128GB internal storage. As for the rear cameras, you get a similar setup that’s found on the Galaxy A42 save for the lower-resolution depth sensor. That being said, you still get a 48-megapixel main rear camera with the Galaxy A32, while a 13-megapixel camera takes care of selfies.
It’s also similar with the Galaxy A42 as it also gets a 5000mAh battery with 15w wired charging. Samsung did not disclose what Android version it is running, but we presume that it comes with Android 11 and OneUI 3.0
The Galaxy A32 5G is priced at 279 Euros (~Php 16.3k) for the 64GB model while there’s no mention of the pricing for the 128GB variant. Pricing in Europe is usually more expensive, so expect a lower SRP when it becomes official here in the Philippines.
We’re expecting around Php 14-15k for the Galaxy A32, and while that may sound a bit on the pricey side (especially with the low internal storage and display resolution), we will have to get our hands on one and see if the Dimensity 720 processor is worth its asking price.
