Samsung is one more step closer to unveiling the Galaxy A25 5G. The company has just picked up another important certification for the new mid-range phone. The device has been certified by renowned independent product testing firm TUV Rheinland, hinting at a nearing launch.

Galaxy A25 5G receives the TUV Rheinland certification

The Galaxy A25 5G will succeed Samsung’s Galaxy A24, which debuted in April this year with 4G connectivity. Last week, we gave you exclusive official renders of the new phone. It picked up the FCC certification shortly after that, while a major leak followed a few days later to reveal most of its specs and alleged European pricing.

Now, the device has popped up on the TUV Rheinland’s website. Spotted by MySmartPrice, the listing shows that the phone will be available in a dual-SIM variant with support for 25W fast wired charging (9V, 2.77A). While no other information was revealed, earlier leaks, benchmarks, and certifications have already given us a lot. The phone packs a 5,000mAh battery.

The US version of the Galaxy A25 5G will support 11 5G bands, the FCC revealed. It boasts NFC, Bluetooth 5.2, Wi-Fi 5, and GPS and features a microSD card slot. Storage options include 128GB and 256GB, paired with 6GB and 8GB RAM, respectively. Samsung’s in-house Exynos 1280 processor powers the device. The 5nm chipset has a peak CPU speed of 2.4GHz.

The upcoming mid-range Samsung phone features a 6.5-inch display with an FHD+ resolution. We should be looking at a Super AMOLED panel with a 90Hz/120Hz refresh rate. For imaging, the Korean firm is giving you a 50MP primary rear camera, an 8MP ultrawide lens, a 2MP macro camera, and a 13MP selfie camera. We are expecting OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and 1080p video recording.

Samsung may launch the phone earlier than the 2023 model

The Galaxy A25 5G popped up on a Geekbench listing in September, revealing Android 14 onboard. However, a recent leak said the device will ship with Android 13. If the later report is accurate, Samsung may be looking to unveil it early next year. Even if it isn’t, recent developments suggest the new mid-range phone will arrive on the market earlier than its predecessor.

As our exclusive renders show, the handset will come in four colors: Black, Blue, Silver, and Yellow. The Korean firm usually gives these colors fancy names, so expect something similar this time too. The Galaxy A25 5G may cost around €300/$300 for the base variant when it launches next year. Stay tuned for more information.
