Samsung switching to 50MP cameras for its cheap Galaxy A phones?


Last updated: September 20th, 2021 at 12:27 UTC+02:00

Samsung is expected to make 5G smartphones cheaper than ever before with the Galaxy A13 5G. We first came to know the Galaxy A13 5G is in development back in late August, but details on its specifications were non-existent at the time. That’s no longer the case thanks to a report from GalaxyClub.

The Galaxy A13 5G reportedly has a 50MP main camera sensor, which is rather interesting. We’ve seen either 48MP or 64MP rear cameras on Samsung’s mid-range phones over the last few years, and the company’s 50MP sensors are so new that they are yet to be used in any of its own devices.

It’s not known which sensor the Galaxy A13 5G will use, but we can assume that it will not offer anything close to the performance of the 50MP camera that’s expected to be present on the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+.

2022 Galaxy A series could focus on improved cameras across the board

The switch to a 50MP camera sensor for the more affordable Galaxy A series phones may not be the only thing Samsung is doing to shake up the mid-range segment. We heard recently that the Galaxy A73 could feature a 108MP main camera, and all 2022 Galaxy A devices are rumored to support optical image stabilization.

Coming back to the Galaxy A13 5G, today’s report also reveals the battery capacity of the device: 5,000 mAh. And that’s pretty much it as far as information about this phone is concerned, though we will likely hear more in the coming weeks and months as we move closer to its launch, which may or may not happen sometime later this year.
