Samsung just sent us their new Galaxy A73 smartphone, and here is our unboxing and hands-on preview!
Samsung Galaxy A73 : What’s Inside The Box!
Samsung just launched their Galaxy A73 mid-range smartphone, which boasts a 108 MP quad-camera system and a large Super AMOLED+ display, at an affordable price point!
They sent one to us to review, so let’s take a look at the box, and see what we find inside!
Once you fully unbox it, this is what you will find :
- Samsung Galaxy A73 5G smartphone
- Set of Galaxy A73 documents
- Type C to Type C USB data and power cable
- SIM tray extractor pin
Unfortunately, Samsung did not include a 25 watt charger, and the Type C to Type C cable will only support the newer Samsung chargers.
If you have the older Samsung charger, you will need to reuse the old Type A to Type C cable, or buy a new cable.
