Back in the day, every OEM, Samsung included, rushed to pack the tried-and-tested 48MP camera sensor in their mid-range and lower-mid-range offerings. Now, the slightly upgraded 50MP sensor is the new kid on the block. We reported earlier that several Galaxy A series devices would be using the hardware. Now, Galaxyclub.nl has learned that the Galaxy A23 is one of them.
The Galaxy A23, much like its predecessor, the Galaxy A22, will come in two variants, one with 5G and one without. Last time around, Samsung had to cut several corners to enable 5G connectivity on the Galaxy A22 5G, and one can only hope that the differences between the two variants are a lot less blatant this time around.
50MP is the new 48MP
However, we can rest easy knowing that Samsung will likely use the same 50MP camera module on both Galaxy A23 variants. After all, the Galaxy A13, which is a tier below the Galaxy A23, is slated to run the same primary camera sensor. Then again, several competitors such as Motorola, Realme and Xiaomi are transitioning to a 50MP sensor on their devices, so it isn’t surprising to see Samsung follow suit.
We don’t know a whole lot more about the Galaxy A23. If previous product cycles are anything to go by, we can expect to see a slightly newer SoC, a marginally better screen and the age-old 5,000mAh battery. It is hard to tell when Samsung will launch the Galaxy A23, but we can expect to see it in around Q2, 2022 if things go according to plan.
