Samsung Galaxy M53 5G has just been announced in India as its latest midrange smartphone aimed at gamers. Here are all the details.
Samsung has come up with another addition to the M series and this time, it is the successor to a very popular model. The Galaxy M53 5G brings in some key upgrades that resemble that of the Galaxy A73 5G that we just reviewed. It has got a new main camera, a new chipset, and a couple of other changes over its predecessor, the Galaxy M52 5G. The prices are cheaper this time, which makes it seem like an even better deal for value conscious buyers.
The Samsung Galaxy M53 5G in India starts at Rs. 23,999 for the base variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The 8GB + 128GB variant is priced at Rs. 25,999. Note that this pricing is inclusive of a Rs. 2,500 instant discount for ICICI Bank credit card and EMI transactions. Hence, prices could increase in the future. The Galaxy M53 5G will be available in Deep Ocean Blue and Mystique Green colour options and will go on sale on April 29 via Amazon, Samsung's official website and retail channels.
