Samsung formalizes the 4G version of the Galaxy A32, a smartphone launched in the 5G version in January 2021. The smartphone is visually identical, but it is far from being identical in terms of technical data. Enhanced screen. Reinforced photographic equipment. Different processor. Here is a smartphone that does not lack interest.
You should already know the Galaxy a32. At least, its 5G version. It is one of the first Samsung smartphones in the A line of 2021, along with the Galaxy A02 and Galaxy A12. It went a little unnoticed at the beginning of the year, as Samsung formalized the following day Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra. Heavy artillery.
The Galaxy A32 5G is certainly less expected than the Galaxy a52, whose predecessor is the best-selling Android smartphone in the world in 2020. But the A32 5G is Samsung’s cheapest 5G smartphone, and this is remarkable.
At the same time, the brand’s international press office presented another Galaxy A32: the 4G version. It is a smartphone visually identical to the Galaxy A32 5G. It uses the photographic quintet on the back and the notched screen on the front, served by a beautiful border, and we expected the Galaxy A32 4G to be relatively close to the Galaxy A32 4G. But that is not the case, quite the contrary.
Many elements really differ between the two versions. First, there is the screen. The screen of the A32 4G is slightly smaller, 6.4 inches, but its definition is much higher (Full HD+), for a resolution that fires, 411 pixels per inch (against 270 for the 5G version). In addition, the slab is Super AMOLED and is compatible 90 Hz. The visual experience must therefore be much better than the 4G version. Furthermore, the panel incorporates a fingerprint reader, while it is placed on the edge of the Galaxy A32 5G.
Another change is photography. The main sensor of 48 megapixels of the A32 5G is replaced by a model 64 megapixels. The lens always opens at f/1.8 and the phase detection autofocus is still present. The panoramic sensor (8 megapixels, the aperture at f/2.2) does not change. Likewise for the macro sensor (5 megapixels, opening at f/2.4). On the other hand, the definition of the camera that calculates distances ranges from 2 megapixels to 5 megapixels. At the front, the A32 5G’s 13 megapixel webcam is replaced by a model 20 megapixels.
Last important modification, the SoC. The Dimensity 720 5G is replaced by the Helio G80. The casting remains the same (MediaTek), but the fineness of the engraving is earlier: from 7 nm to 12 nm. The most powerful cores operate at the same speed (2 GHz), but are certainly less optimized in terms of power management. In addition, the GPU is less good. Also note that the A32 4G is no longer compatible with NFC.
For the rest, no change. Drums 5000 mAh compatible quick charge 15 watts. WiFi ac and Bluetooth 5.0. In 4 to 8 GB of RAM depending on the version. In 64 to 128 GB internal storage with possible extension. AND One UI 3.0, in a base Android 11, always in charge. So here’s a very surprising Galaxy A32 4G when compared to the 5G version.
