Samsung Galaxy A13 and A23 unveiled with 6.6″ FHD+ displays and 50MP cameras

The Galaxy A series is home to some of the best selling Samsung phones. The company unveiled two affordable models today, the Galaxy A13 and A23. Both have 4G connectivity, though there is already an A13 5G (though the spec sheet has more differences than the modem).

The Samsung Galaxy A23 (4G) is quite different from the Galaxy A22. The first major change is going from a 6.4” AMOLED (720 x 1,600 px, 90 Hz) to a 6.6” LCD (1,080 x 2,408 px, 60 Hz). The screen gained Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Strangely, this phone is more similar to the new A13 than it is to its predecessor.

The changes continue with the camera department. The main camera has a 50 MP sensor (f/1.8 aperture), replacing the 48 MP one. The ultra wide camera drops to a 5 MP sensor (from 8 MP), the two 2 MP helpers (macro and depth) remain on board. The selfie camera was also demoted with an 8 MP sensor (down from 13 MP on the A12).

Samsung doesn’t reveal the chipset, but do note that this is a 4G phone. We’ve seen leaks mentioning a Dimensity chip, that would be for the Galaxy A23 5G. Anyway, this phone comes with several memory configurations: 4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB storage (plus a microSD if you want). The phone will run Android 12 with One UI 4.1 out of the box.

The battery capacity is the same as last year, 5,000 mAh, but here we find a rare upgrade – charging speed went up to 25W (up from 15W).

Samsung Galaxy A13 (4G)

The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G launched in December, now comes a 4G version. There are a number of differences between the two and as we mentioned earlier, the Galaxy A13 and A23 are quite similar.

The Samsung Galaxy A13 (4G) will run Android 12 with One UI 4.1 on an Exynos 850 chipset (8x A55 @ 2.0 GHz, Mali-G52 MP1) with 3, 4 or 6 GB of RAM and 32, 64 or 128 GB of storage (there is a microSD slot). The phone’s body is made out of plastic and measures 165.1 x 76.4 x 8.8 mm and weighs 195g.

On the front is a 6.6” LCD (1,080 x 2,408 px, 20:9) that runs at 60 Hz. For comparison, the 5G model has a 6.5” 720 x 1,600 px display with 90 Hz refresh rate. The 4G one also has Gorilla Glass 5 protection.

Also on the front is an 8 MP selfie camera (instead of a 5 MP cam). The rear camera setup features a 50 MP main (f/1.8, PDAF), 5 MP ultra wide (which is missing from the 5G model), 2 MP macro and a 2 MP depth sensor. Both the front and back cameras top out at 1080p video recording. Did you notice that there is no camera bump?

The Galaxy A13 will offer up to 300 Mbps download speeds, 150 Mbps upload. Wired connectivity includes a 3.5 mm headphone jack and USB-C to charge the 5,000 mAh battery with 25W fast charging (up from 15W on the 5G model).
