All that is powered by a large 5,000 mAh battery, which supports up to 25 watt fast charging.

Samsung Galaxy A54 : Unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy A54 smartphone comes in a thin white cardboard box, which tells you that it definitely does not come with a USB charger inside.

It is protected by two security stickers. Please make sure they are intact when you receive the box. Do not accept it, if any of the security stickers have been cut or tampered with.

After cutting the security stickers and taking off the top of the box, you will find the Galaxy A54 smartphone wrapped in plastic.

But don’t chuck away the box cover yet. Hidden underneath is a cardboard packet containing its documents and accessories.

Once you remove everything, you should find these items inside the box:

  • Samsung Galaxy A54 smartphone
  • One set of documents : Quick Start Guide, warranty card, Samsung Pay leaflet, Regional Lock Guide
  • Type C to Type C USB cable
  • SIM tray pin

The package is pretty sparse. There is no USB charger, and no, it doesn’t come with a basic TPU case either.
