Samsung Galaxy A74 5G Launch Not Happening; Galaxy A7X Series Cancelled: Report

Samsung also did not launch the Galaxy A73 5G in as many countries compared to the Galaxy A72.


Samsung is gearing up to launch its next generation of Galaxy A-series phones. The company has already unveiled the Galaxy A04 series in various markets, including India. Samsung is expected to launch more devices, such as the Galaxy A14 series, Galaxy A24, Galaxy A34, etc. Usually, the Galaxy A7X series is the most premium in the lineup. Samsung’s current Galaxy A-series flagship is the Galaxy A73 5G. It was expected that the Samsung Galaxy A74 5G could be in the works for its launch early next year. However, a new report suggests otherwise.

According to a new report, Samsung might not launch the Galaxy A74 5G at all. In fact, Galaxy Club claims that Samsung will not launch any phones as part of the A7x series in the future. The Galaxy A54 will be Samsung’s most premium Galaxy A-series for the next year at least, according to the report.

Why Samsung Might Not Pursue Plans for Galaxy A7x Series

There was no particular reason stated as to why the Galaxy A7x series would be shut down. Samsung also did not launch the Galaxy A73 5G in as many countries compared to the Galaxy A72. Also, there are no reports about the Samsung Galaxy S22 FE or the Galaxy S23 FE launching next year. Therefore, it leaves a huge price gap between the top-tier Galaxy A-series phone and the baseline Galaxy S-series, which is Samsung’s flagship smartphone offering. 

The company has not confirmed any details about the same. Therefore, we advise taking the leaked details with a pinch of salt. The Galaxy A73 5G, as of now, remains the last Galaxy A7x series phone in Samsung’s portfolio. This is, of course, true only if Samsung decides to revive the top-tier model.

The company also did not launch the Galaxy A82’s successor. Therefore, it could be possible that the company is considering trimming down the lineup and keeping its portfolio a bit leaner.

The Galaxy A73 5G was launched earlier this year in March. It came with a premium price tag of Rs 41,999 in India. The phone was launched with 8GB of RAM as standard and offered 128GB, and 256GB storage options. The latter would cost Rs 44,999 in India.

For the price, users got a tall 6.7-inch Full HD+ AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen sported a hole-punch cutout at the top and came with a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 5. The Galaxy A73 5G also features a Snapdragon 778G processor and packs a beefy 5000mAh battery. It supports 25W fast charging but there is no charger in the box.

On the back, the phone offers a quad-camera setup with a 108MP main camera sensor, which is the first in the company’s A-series lineup. There is also a 12MP ultrawide camera along with two 5MP sensors for depth-sensing and macro photography. The device comes with a 32MP front camera.

Samsung launched the phone with Android out of the box. It had a layer of One UI 4.1 on top. However, the phone has already received the latest One UI 5.0 based on Android 13 in various markets. What are your thoughts on the Galaxy A74 5G? Let us know in the comments below.
