Galaxy A33 Rumor Has It That There Will Be Quad Rear Cameras But No Headphone Jack On The Phone

It seems that the Galaxy A33, which is expected to be announced soon, will have a similar style to the Galaxy A52 (seen above), but it will be devoid of Samsung’s regular headphone port.

Samsung discontinued support for headphone jacks on its flagship phones in early 2020, but kept them on its budget and mid-range devices. According to recent rumors, that may be about to change with the release of the Galaxy A33.

It has been revealed that the Galaxy A33 would sport a fresh design based on leaked specifications from @Onleaks and 91Mobiles. Samsung’s next Galaxy A33 is speculated to include a 6.4-inch FHD+ AMOLED display and quad rear cameras with alleged higher-resolution sensors expected to be shown at CES in January.

In contrast to last year’s A32, which was offered in both a 4G and 5G variant, the A33 may not have a 4G variant next year. If these reports are correct, it seems that Samsung will no longer provide headphone functionality in its mid-range phones, despite the company’s long tradition of having this feature.

Budget-conscious consumers who use wired headphones to listen to music or watch videos instead of costlier wireless earbuds might be hit hard by this news. However, this choice isn’t completely out of the ordinary.

A USB-C connector and a speaker are on the bottom of the Galaxy A33, and the phone will be available in black, white, orange, and light blue color variants, according to the latest leaks (though color options may vary based on the region).

Samsung has maintained to provide a microSD card slot in its mid-range phones even after discontinuing it on its higher-end Galaxy S models, but the most recent reports are silent on whether the Galaxy A33 would follow suit.

It’s also conceivable that the Galaxy A33 may lose its microSD card slot, like Samsung did with the Galaxy S20, which had both a 3.5mm headphone jack and a microSD card slot removed at the same time.

Even if it’s not true, we could be witnessing the end of an era, as Samsung could be signaling the end of support for both headphones jacks and microSD card slots on all its phones regardless of price—possibly compelling current Samsung users to explore alternatives such as Motorola and TCL’s mid-range devices.
