Samsung's working on both updates to its existing software and existing hardware at the same time, as you would expect. In case of the latter, Samsung is working on a Galaxy M14 5G as a sequel to the Galaxy M13 5G, as revealed by the M14 5G's entry — or rather, the entry of a Samsung device with model number SM-M146B — on the Geekbench benchmark database.
This is one of the first appearances of the Galaxy M14 5G, suggesting the launch of the phone is still a couple of months away, although with Samsung you can never be sure. According to the benchmark, the Galaxy M14 5G could be powered by the Exynos 1330 chipset.
Galaxy M14 5G will run Android 13 out of the box
The Exynos 1330 features two 2.4GHz cores and six 2.0GHz cores and the Mali-G68 GPU, and one of the variants of the phone should have 4GB of RAM to go along with the the processor. On the software front, the benchmark lists Android 13, which means the Galaxy M14 5G could be one of the first Galaxy phones to launch with the newest version of Android out of the box.
The specs revealed by the benchmark are more or less the same as those for the Galaxy A14 5G, although we will have to wait and see what other specs the two phones will share. It will also be interesting to see if Samsung will launch an LTE version of either phone. We would say no if we were to guess, especially since 5G networks recently went live in some markets where the M series is popular, like India.
As usual, we'll let you know as soon as we found out more about this particular new Samsung smartphone, so stay tuned.
