Samsung’s budget 5G smartphone breaks cover ahead of official announcement
Whereas Samsung is gearing up for its next major announcement, let’s talk a bit about the company’s plans after the launch of its market heavy hitters, Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4. Although profit margins are much lower for budget smartphones compared to flagships, the Galaxy A and M series are still a big part of the company’s mobile business. One of the most anticipated Galaxy A series phones, the The Galaxy A23 5G is expected to be introduced shortly after the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4. Despite the fact that we don’t have an official release date for the budget 5G smartphone, we finally know what it looks like thanks to a new leak.
Although its name suggests it sits at the bottom of the Galaxy A tier in terms of specs, the Galaxy A23 5G is quite the opposite. It’s not just the 5G connectivity which makes it appealing to the masses, but other specs have also been leaked recently.
For example, the Galaxy A23 5G is supposed to sport a massive 6.6-inch FHD+ display and a quad-camera setup (50MP + 5MP + 2MP + 2MP). Not to mention that the main camera of the phone has OIS (optical image stabilization) which is quite unusual.
More importantly, the Galaxy A23 5G will offer 25W fast charging support and a more than decent Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, coupled with 4/6/8 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of internal memory.
Images that surfaced today confirm that the Galaxy A23 5G will be available in at least four different colors: black, blue, rose gold, and white. We know for sure that the phone will be launched in Europe first and it will cost €300, but it is entirely possible that some of them top US carriers might choose this one as well.
In other news, if you’re exclusively interested in Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, which will be unveiled on August 10 and hit the market two weeks later, you can now reserve either of the two flagships in Samsung’s online store.
