Samsung’s working on a successor to the Galaxy M32 from earlier this year, which will unsurprisingly be called Galaxy M33. A prototype of this model has been spotted in the Geekbench database today, where it showed up with the Exynos 1200 chipset at the helm.
That’s the same SoC that the Galaxy A53 5G was caught running the same benchmark with, and their scores are pretty similar too, unsurprisingly. It is in fact likely that the Galaxy M33 will be a rebranded A53, but with one major difference – a much larger battery.
The Galaxy M33’s cell has already been certified by SafetyKorea, and this process reveals that we’re looking at a 6,000 mAh unit with the model number EB-BM336ABN. The Galaxy M32 also has a 6,000 mAh battery, so its successor isn’t gaining anything in this category. Then again, it’s not losing any capacity either.
The prototype Galaxy M33 that ran Geekbench had 6GB of RAM, although the phone may be offered in multiple memory/storage configurations when it launches. Speaking of launch, since the prototype ran Android 12, we’re expecting the finalized product to debut with that version of the OS, which means it’s still a few weeks out – it’s Samsung’s flagships that usually get the honor of first launching with the newest iteration of the software. This is also corroborated by the fact that we haven’t yet seen any additional leaks about the M33. Still, the floodgates are now open, so brace yourselves for what’s coming.
