Over on the front, there’s a 32MP selfie shooter. All of this is backed by a large 5,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging support. However, as we have seen with the Galaxy A53 and other recent Galaxy phone launches, Samsung doesn’t include the charger inside the box. On the software front, the Galaxy M53 ships with One UI 4.1 based on Android 12. Samsung promises two years of OS updates and four years of security updates.

Other notable highlights of the Galaxy M53 include a side-mounted fingerprint reader, 5G support, Dolby Atmos, and a vapor cooling chamber to keep thermals in check.

The Galaxy M53 starts at ₹26,499 for the 6GB/128GB model and goes up to ₹28,499 for the 8GB/128GB model. ICICI credit card owners can avail ₹2,500 off on both variants. The phone will go on sale on Amazon India, Samsung.com, and leading retail outlets starting April 29.
