The A54 5G has a 6.6-inch Full HD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED display with 120Hz refresh rate, compared to 6.4-inch 90Hz in the predecessor. Since the screen has up to 1000 nits brightness, a 25% increase compared to the A53, it is bright even in outdoors

The Galaxy A54 5G is powered by the Dimensity 1080 6nm SoC with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB storage. The performance is good for daily usage, but the gaming performance is not on par with the Snapdragon 778G. It has support for several 5G bands.

The phone runs Android 13 with One UI 4 on top. Samsung has promised 4 OS updates and 5 years of security updates for the phone. It also has NFC and Knox security.

Inside the U-shaped notch there is a 13-megapixel camera with f/2.2 aperture, same as the predecessor. The earpiece grill is on the top edge, which doubles as up as a secondary speaker.

It has an in-display fingerprint scanner, which is quick to unlock the phone, immediately after you keep the finger in the area. There is a small chin below the display.

Coming to the button placements, the power button and the volume rockers are present on the right side. There is nothing on the left side. The primary microphone, USB Type-C port and the loudspeaker grill are on the bottom. The secondary microphone and the hybrid dual SIM slot are on the top. The phone doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack.

It has a 48MP main camera with OIS, 12MP ultra-wide camera and a 5MP macro camera. Both the front and rear cameras support up to 4K 30 fps recording. Check out some camera samples below.
