So far, only high-end smartphones like the Galaxy S21 from Samsung have had to live with compromises in terms of equipment, while the middle class has been spared certain decisions. That will change in the coming year with the Galaxy A53.
Samsung Galaxy A53 does without a 3.5 mm jack connector
The 3.5 mm jack connection is retained in the entry-level and mid-range. So far, Samsung has followed this unwritten law. That will change with the Galaxy A53 and probably all other Android smartphones from the South Korean group in 2022. The 3.5 mm jack connector has already been removed from the top models. Now this approach is being extended to the middle class, as the source confirms Render images based on CAD drawings created:
Samsung only slightly changes the design of the Galaxy A53 compared to the Galaxy A52. It is noticeable, for example, that the main camera has a much softer finish on the back. The curves are much larger, so the Camera hump no longer looks so big. In principle, however, the arrangement of the cameras remains unchanged.
The biggest change concerns the no longer available 3.5 mm jack connection. It is not clear to us why Samsung is removing this. The Galaxy A52 was already waterproof, so that can hardly count as a reason. If the power supply is missing in the scope of delivery, as is the case with the top smartphones, it will many customers didn’t like it at all.

There will also be an Exynos processor with an AMD GPU. Since there is still likely to be a shortage of chips, all of this is currently not really certain.
