Samsung Galaxy A54 Release Date
- Update: The Galaxy A54 5G will be released on March 16, 2023.
|Galaxy A54 5G||March 16, 2023|
|Galaxy A53 5G||March 17, 2022|
|Galaxy A52||March 17, 2021|
Samsung has not shared any information on the release date of the Galaxy A54 so far. However, we can expect the Galaxy A54 to launch in March 2023. This is based on past launch trends of the Galaxy A5X series.
For context, the Galaxy A52 was launched in March 2021, followed by the Galaxy A53 5G in March 2022. The past releases show that Samsung usually launches its Galaxy A series phones in March. Therefore, we can expect the next-generation Galaxy A54 to launch around the same time frame.
Samsung Galaxy A54 Features
Samsung is already working on its next generation of mid-range smartphones, including the successor to its most popular mid-range phone— the Galaxy A53. The Galaxy A54 will bear the model number SM-A546B. This means that the smartphone is in the works and will be released soon. Let’s take a look at its specifications.
Samsung is yet to announce the Galaxy A54 5G officially. And as you might have guessed, the specifications of the Galaxy A54 are also unknown. However, based on past and current trends, we can speculate on its specifications.
Starting with the performance, the Galaxy A54 could be powered by the Exynos 1380 5G chipset, which will succeed the Exynos 1280 5G chipset on the Galaxy A53. Reportedly, the Exynos 1380 5G chipset (part number S5E8835) is already in development. However, these are just speculations, and Samsung might also use a Snapdragon 7-series processor on the Galaxy A54.
As for the display, we could see an FHD+ 120Hz display on the Galaxy A54. A conceptual render by Technizo Concepts X LetsGoDigital hints toward a display with symmetrical bezels around the display, resembling the flagship Galaxy S series. Moreover, the camera bump is also a bit more protruding.
Talking about the cameras, the Galaxy A54 could have a better and improved primary camera sensor and ultra-wide and other cameras. As per GalaxyClub, the upcoming Galaxy A54 will sport a 50MP primary unit. There are no details about the camera as of now. In terms of megapixel count, we will see a camera downgrade on A54 as both Galaxy A52 and A53 pack 64MP units. Since the megapixel count isn’t everything, we may see a bigger and more capable sensor on A54 with OIS. As for the front camera, we can expect a 32MP selfie shooter.
4. Battery & Charging
The Galaxy A54 will have a large battery size of 5100mAh. As per GalaxyClub, the Galaxy A54 will carry the model number EB-BA546ABY with a rated battery capacity of 4905 mAh. So the typical capacity could be 5100 mAh. To recall, last year’s A53 had a rated battery capacity of 4860 mAh and a typical capacity of 5000 mAh.
The charging speed will likely remain disappointing. While other OEMs are shifting to 65W or even 150W on their mid-tier phones, Samsung may stick to 25W with the Galaxy A54.
Samsung Galaxy A54 5G has appeared in China’s 3C certification database, confirming its charging details. It also hints the device may launch soon in the Chinese market. As per the 3C listing, it may carry support for 25W fast charging.
A notable thing about the Galaxy A54 is the software. It will run on the latest One UI 5 software based on Android 13 out of the box. Plus, Samsung will also provide four years of major software updates and five years of security updates with the Galaxy A54, just like the Galaxy A53 and other Galaxy smartphones.
Do note that these are not official specifications of the Galaxy A54. Hence, these may contradict the specifications when the smartphone is officially released. However, this is the closest to the actual specifications of the smartphone.
Galaxy A54 Full Specifications (Expected)
- 6.5-inch 120Hz Super AMOLED

Galaxy A54 Price in the US
- The Galaxy A54 5G price could start at $499 in the US.
The Galaxy A series is known for its affordable pricing. It is the most popular Galaxy phone in the world. Therefore, we can also expect the Galaxy A54 to be priced similarly. Let’s look at the prices of the last three generations of the Galaxy A5X series.
- Samsung Galaxy A51– $399
- Samsung Galaxy A52– $499
- Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G– $499
- Samsung Galaxy A53 5G– $449
Based on these prices, we can expect the Galaxy A54 to be priced at $499 for the base model. The base model will likely have 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
This is all we know about the upcoming Galaxy mid-range — the Samsung Galaxy A54 5G. The specifications, release date, and price are all speculations. Nevertheless, we will have to wait for the official release for more accurate information regarding the Galaxy A54.
Do you know the A54 or any other upcoming mid tier Samsung phones will have wireless charging capability?
Unfortunately, no. We don’t think that Samsung will bring wireless charging to the A series anytime soon. Samsung reserves some features for the S and Z lineup.
