Samsung’s ever-expanding portfolio of affordable 5G-enabled Galaxy A series smartphones will be joined by a new member soon. The Galaxy A14 5G has been making the rounds in the rumor mill for some time now, and the device is now one step closer to its official launch as it has picked up certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance.
The Wi-Fi certificate doesn’t reveal anything interesting other than the fact that the model number of the device will be SM-A146P instead of SM-A146B (Samsung has been using the letter B for international 5G-enabled smartphones ever since it started making 5G phones, but it seems the company is making some changes for upcoming devices). The A14 5G has support for Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, which means it can connect to both 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks.
The Galaxy A14 will be one of Samsung’s most affordable 5G smartphones
As for its specifications, a recent leak revealed the Galaxy A14 5G will feature a 6.8-inch screen with Full HD+ resolution, a notable step up from the 6.5-inch HD+ display on the Galaxy A13 5G. It will also sport a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Furthermore, Samsung is expected to launch the A14 as a 5G-only device, unlike its predecessor. Unfortunately, details on the phone’s processor and memory configurations are currently unavailable. Battery capacity is unknown, too, but a 5,000 mAh battery seems like a safe bet.
The Galaxy A14 5G could launch in Europe by the end of 2022, but again, we’re in the dark as far as a concrete release date is concerned. The same goes for pricing, but you can rest assured that we will let you know once more details about the phone come to light.
