The Galaxy A25 is expected to feature a 6.44-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate and a punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. The device is rumored to be powered by the Exynos 1280 chipset, which is based on a 5nm process and has an octa-core CPU with two Cortex-A78 cores and six Cortex-A55 cores.

The Galaxy A25 will likely have a 5000mAh battery, which is the same capacity as the Galaxy A24. The device will support 25W fast charging, which should provide a decent battery life and quick top-ups. The device will also have a side-mounted fingerprint sensor for biometric authentication, as well as an accelerometer, a gyro, a compass, and a virtual proximity sensor.
