To ensure you can browse on 5G for hours, the device is equipped with a generous 5,000mAh battery with 18W charging. It also has a couple of modern features like a 90Hz refresh rate for extra smoothness, 180Hz touch sampling for improved responsiveness, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for a cleaner look.
There’s a punch-hole on the screen to make the 13-megapixel selfie subtle. You can also notice the slight curve on the back that should make it comfortable in the hands. It comes in two muted but sleek colors: Fluid Black and Space Silver.
The A74 5G also uses AI to adjust the brightness depending on your habits automatically. It also has 100% DCI-P3 coverage for great color representation.
