The more you look at the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G, the more it feels like the ideal proposition for the Indian smartphone buyer. Not only does it offer the benefits of a segment-best 108MP quad-camera setup, but it also packs a high refresh rate Super AMOLED panel. More importantly, the phone is powered by the 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset that guarantees outstanding performance, among other advanced features. And all this at an introductory price of Rs 23,999 makes it a deal that’s hard to refuse. Let’s take a deep dive into what makes this smartphone stand out from the crowd.

108MP brilliance

A big ace up the Galaxy M53 5G’s sleeve is the 108MP main camera on its rear panel. It enables users to capture clear and detailed images in all lighting conditions. Incorporating such a high-resolution sensor wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the MediaTek Dimensity 900 chip. Its support for high-res 108MP sensors is one of its primary attributes. Moreover, the chipset also provides several other traits like 4K HDR video, single camera AI-bokeh, and other AI-enabled features. The phone also comes with the famed Single Take feature that lets you capture multiple outputs in one take and Magic Object Eraser which lets you erase unwanted elements from a picture.

The Galaxy M53 5G’s quad-camera setup also includes an 8MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. The combined abilities of all these shooters give the phone extreme versatility, making it a great choice for photography lovers. Moreover, a 32MP front camera is also present on the device that lets you capture beautiful selfies. 

Smooth performance

The MediaTek Dimensity 900 chipset is made with a 6nm process and has eight cores comprising two performance and six efficiency cores. The CPU is able to deliver high-intensity performance on the back of its dual 2.4GHz Cortex-A78 cores, while the low-intensity tasks are handled by its six Cortex-A55 cores running at 2.0GHz. The combination ensures a balance between powerful performance and battery efficiency. The SoC is also home to a Mali-G68 MC4 GPU that promises slick visuals, especially for gaming.

Another big highlight of this phone in the hardware department is its incorporation of up to 8GB of RAM. Thanks to the RAM Plus feature, you can get up to 16 GB of RAM, which is the best in its segment. Overall, no matter what apps or games you try running on the device, you will always have a smooth experience. You don’t have to worry about gaming performance for long hours either, as the device comes with a Vapour Cooling Chamber that keeps the thermals in check.

12-band 5G support and Intelligent Voice Focus 

A major USP of Samsung phones has been their support for a wide array of 5G bands. The Galaxy M53 5G supports 12 bands 5G, thus almost guaranteeing that you will receive your preferred carrier’s 5G service once it is rolled out in India. This is made possible by the top-notch 5G modem onboard the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC. Not only it offers 5G-CA for enabling higher average speeds and a seamless handover between two 5G connection areas, but it also brings MediaTek 5G UltraSave for delivering superfast 5G speeds without putting much strain on the phone’s battery.

There are several other connectivity features as well. Users would also appreciate the Intelligent Voice Focus that lets you take phone calls easily by cutting down loud background noise. For example, even if you are in a noisy scenario such as a busy road, or a party, you can rest assured that the receiver can hear your voice in a crystal clear manner. Not just that, the feature amplifies the voice of the other party, so that you can hear them clearly too. 

In addition, the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is the only smartphone in the segment that comes with Auto Data Switching. It allows you to make or receive calls or use data from the secondary SIM, even when the primary SIM is in no network zone.

Striking high refresh rate display

Another functionality that the MediaTek Dimensity 900 facilitates is the use of a 120Hz panel on the Galaxy M53 5G. The inclusion of high refresh-rate display results in smooth scrolling and a fluid user experience. Moreover, this 6.7-inch FHD+ screen is sAMOLED+ in nature, giving it bright and vivid visuals that stand out. All this, combined with the ultra-slim bezels on the phone, make for an immersive viewing experience.

A massive battery

Moreover, the efficient operations made possible by the 6nm MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC make for even more savings on the battery front. When the phone does run out of power, filling it back up is a rather quick task, thanks to the support for 25W fast charging.

The other highlights of the Galaxy M53 5G include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and an Intelligent Voice Focus feature that cuts out loud background noise during calls. There’s no doubt that the Samsung Galaxy M53 5G is a great choice for those looking for a powerful mid-range smartphone that doesn’t cut any corners. The presence of the MediaTek Dimensity 900 SoC inside makes sure that the phone is powerful and feature-rich.
