mobiles, samsung, galaxy a73, phone, psa: galaxy a73 gains 108mp main camera but loses zoom camera

Mid-range smartphones seldom pack telephoto lenses, opting to pad the camera setup with macro/depth/ultra-wide-angle lenses instead. Last year’s Galaxy A72 stood out in this regard thanks to its 8MP telephoto lens. Its successor, the Galaxy A73, has axed it all together and opted to replace with an objectively inferior sensor.

Galaxy A73 loses the beloved zoom camera

Strictly speaking, 108 MP sensors have been around on mid-range smartphones for quite some time now, especially ones from Xiaomi. However, Samsung took its own sweet time bringing it to non-Galaxy S devices, with the Galaxy A73 being the first of its kind. It keeps the Galaxy A72‘s 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens and substitutes the telephoto lens with a 5 MP depth sensor.

Although the Galaxy A73 offers many quality-of-life upgrades such as a better Snapdragon 778G SoC and a 120 Hz screen, the lack of a dedicated zoom lens will certainly affect its camera prowess, especially when it gets axed for a practically useless depth sensor. Other downgrades include the lack of a 3.5mm audio jack and the lack of an in-box charger, both of which seem to be a lost cause at this point.
