Does Galaxy A53 5G support screen mirroring?

I'm confused about screen mirroring support on my phone - whether it's wired (via USB-C to VGA or HDMI adapter) or wireless. Because I wanted to use my phone as screen mirroring to some televisions in school instead of bringing my laptop.

Yes, it does. The Galaxy A53 5G supports Smart View. To activate Smart View, swipe down from the top of the screen using 2 fingers or swipe down from the top of the screen 2 times, find and tap Smart View, then find and tap your TV on the list.
