Samsung sells an incredible amount of its entry-level smartphones. They’re competitively priced and offer respectable specs. These devices tend to do well in emerging markets particularly for first-time smartphone buyers.
So it goes without saying that Samsung seeks to improve them with every iteration. The Galaxy A12 ranked among the best Samsung phones due to the value for money it provided. The Galaxy A13 will be its successor and it’s getting an upgrade in the camera department.
Galaxy A13 is getting a camera upgrade
Reports out of South Korea suggest that Samsung is planning to equip the Galaxy A13 with a 50-megapixel primary sensor. The device will have a quad camera setup with a 5-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel macro and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
There’s also going to be an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The rest of the camera setup is exactly the same as the Galaxy A12. It’s only the primary sensor that’s being upgraded from 48-megapixel on the Galaxy A12 to 50-megapixel on the Galaxy A13.
Earlier reports have suggested that the device will run a MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC with 5G support. Its predecessor also utilized a MediaTek chipset, came with a 5,000mAh battery and had a 6.5-inch HD+ TFT display. No word as yet on the pricing for the Galaxy A13.
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A12 in November last year before it went on sale in January 2021. So we might see a similar timeline for the Galaxy A13. It may very well be one of the first Samsung devices to hit the market in 2022.
