FCC Certifies Samsung Galaxy A32 5G

Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy A32 5G is likely to be the company’s cheapest 5G smartphone ever. Most people have seen the future affordable device in leaked renders, and so we know what it looks like. Now the FCC has certified the phone as well, which gives us some details about its specs and features.

Firstly, the device will ship with a 15W charger in the box. The model that was certified is SM-A326J, and this specific variation comes with support for 5G bands 28/77/78. There’s also NFC support on board.

The Galaxy A32 5G will have a 6.5″ display with a waterdrop notch, and a glossy plastic finish. On the rear there are three cameras (48 MP main) and an LED flash, as well as an unknown sensor (or perhaps a fourth shooter). The phone measures 164.2 x 76.1 x 9.1 mm, and it will have a fingerprint scanner embedded into the power button and is likely to run Android 11 from day one.

As for the company itself, many reports have stated that Samsung will be releasing four folding smartphone devices in 2021. The models will reportedly consist of two Z Fold models and two Z Flip models.

Following rumours that Samsung plans to scrap its Galaxy Note lineup, the company will release the Galaxy S flagships in the first half of the year, with the expectation that Samsung will release foldable flagship phones in the second half. Samsung’s Note series is effectively being succeeded by the highest-tier Galaxy S21, which will come with S Pen support.
