Capture an Awesome Shot in Any Situation

Whether you’re creating content or sharing it with your friends, the new Galaxy A53 5G is built with an awesome camera that’s always in reach. The Galaxy A53 5G’s quad-camera system features a 64MP OIS Camera with VDIS technology that takes crisp and steady shots every time. Meanwhile, a high-resolution 32MP front camera delivers great selfies and clear video call experiences.

Fueled by a brand new 5nm processor, Galaxy A53 5G’s innovative AI-powered camera makes every image look awesome – even in low light. Improved Night mode automatically synthesizes up to 12 images at once, so night photos look bright, with less noise. And when you’re filming videos in a low light environment, your phone’s framerate is automatically adjusted to create bright, clear videos.

The enhanced Portrait mode captures depth and subject outlines more accurately with dual cameras and powerful AI. And with Fun mode, moments can be amplified using playful filters and effects that now work with the Ultra-wide lens. Plus, Photo Remaster breathes new life into old low quality photos, while Object eraser removes pesky photo bombers in the background.
