Listen to the Podcast:
The Samsung Galaxy M54, Samsung’s newest budget smartphone, was recently launched in the Middle East markets.
In case you didn’t know, Samsung’s M-series of smartphones is the more affordable option for its A-series. In this case, the Samsung M54 is the budget equivalent of the Galaxy A54, which just came on the market. The two phones share the same chipset and design language (an obituary for the Galaxy S23).
This article takes a look at everything you need to know about the new Samsung Galaxy M54.
Samsung Galaxy M54: prices and availability
Samsung has quietly launched the phone in the Middle East, without any accompanying press event or announcement.
The Samsung Galaxy M54 is officially on the Samsung Palestine and Samsung Levant websites. We will have to wait for Samsung to announce the price of the Galaxy M54.
Samsung Galaxy M54 will be officially launched on April 11, 2023.
By contrast, previous prices for the Galaxy A53 and Galaxy M53 suggest that the Galaxy A54 will be more reasonably priced, perhaps at the Galaxy A34. Let’s wait for the global launch of the phone to find out more about its price and availability.

Samsung Galaxy M54: Key features and specifications
Samsung seems to be happy with the way the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is designed. Samsung Galaxy M54 also sports the same design for the camera ring that we’ve seen on other Samsung phones recently. But Galaxy M54 does not have rounded corners like Galaxy A54 or A34. The Samsung logo is the only thing on the back of the phone next to the camera. The phone has a budget design, not a high-end one. It has a plastic back and a plastic frame. You can get the phone in dark blue or silver.
When you look at the phone to the front, you’ll see a 6.7-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz frequency. It has a much bigger screen than the Galaxy A54, and since it could cost less, it would be a lower panel. . The screen is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 and the fingerprint scanner is not integrated into the screen but into the power button.
Samsung Exynos 1380 SoC is powered by Samsung Galaxy M54. This chipset has already been seen in the Galaxy A54. It is quite a powerful mid-range chipset, similar to the Snapdragon 778G SoC and the Mediatek Dimension 1080.

Galaxy M54 has three cameras, all set up very well. The main camera has a 108MP sensor that can be used with OIS. Then there’s an 8MP wide-angle sensor and a 2MP close-up sensor. The front of the phone has a 32MP camera. Compared to the Galaxy A54, the camera is a big problem. The Galaxy A54 has the same 50MP sensor as the Galaxy S23 and much better secondary sensors. But since the price was lower than we thought, we can’t complain too much.
The phone has a 25W fast charge and a 6,000 mAh battery. The 6,000 mAh battery in this phone should catch the eye of many who buy it, as it will last longer than the competition, whose batteries are around 5,000 mAh.
Unlike the Galaxy A series, the M series does not have an IP rating. This means that the Galaxy M54 is not protected against dust or water. But the phone is out of the box with a 5.1 UI based on Android 13.
