When needed, Samsung can be quite flamboyant with its product launches. However, it is known to slyly launch some of its low-end offerings from time to time, like the Galaxy A03's stealthy launch in India. Now, Samsung has launched two more affordable smartphones via a press release, the Galaxy A13 and Galaxy A23.
Galaxy A23 specifications
Previous leaks suggested that the Galaxy A23 would be launched in both LTE and 5G flavours. The variant launched today is the former, as Samsung has flat out refused to state which SoC powers the smartphone other than Octa-Core (2.4GHz + 1.9GHz). It is coupled with up to 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. One can expand the latter to 1 TB via a micro SD card.
At the back, the Galaxy A23 packs four camera sensors, a 50 MP (f/1.8) wide-angle lens, a 5 MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2 MP (f/2.4) macro lens and a 2 MP (f/2.4) depth sensor. An 8 MP (f//2.2) sensor handles selfies and video calls. The smartphone features a TFT LCD panel with FHD+ resolution and a V-shaped notch for the selfie camera.
Other Galaxy A23 specs include a 5,000 mAh battery that supports 25 W fast charging and a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. It runs Android 12 customised with One UI 4.0 out of the box. Samsung will sell it in four colour variants: black, white, peach and blue. Its price and availability will be revealed at a later date.
Galaxy A13 specifications
For the most part, the Galaxy A13 is nearly identical to the Galaxy A23. It packs the same camera configuration (50 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP), 5,000 mAh battery with 25 W fast charging, an 8 MP selfie camera, and a 6.6-inch FHD+ screen. The only apparent difference between the two is the SoC, which, in typical Samsung fashion, is designated as Octa-Core (2.2GHz + 2GHz).
The Galaxy A13 also packs slightly lower RAM and storage (up to 6 GB and 64 GB), with the latter supporting expansion via a micro SD card. Other features such as Samsung Knox, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and colour variants are identical across both devices.
