There are plenty of 5G-capable smartphones available these days, at least in the top tiers of the smartphone market. While more affordable 5G phones are on the market, few phone manufacturers have managed to break into the entry-level or budget phone market with 5G handsets. Samsung’s Galaxy A series has been vying for dominance in this space, and the Galaxy A13 5G will attempt to maintain that position.
Last month, we saw the Galaxy A13 5G, which could start a new trend for Samsung’s Galaxy A series. It would be the first smartphone with a 50MP camera, and other family members would finally get the much-desired Optical Image Stabilization, or OIS, feature. Now, a new set of leaks from Zouton and @OnLeaks has revealed almost everything about what could be one of Samsung’s biggest 2022 releases.
The phone’s 50MP camera will reportedly use Samsung‘s slightly new ISOCELL JN1 sensor, which could be the imaging department’s only highlight. The phone only has two other cameras on the back, a 5MP ultra-wide shooter and a 2MP depth sensor, unlike its Galaxy A12 predecessor. At this time, nothing is known about the front camera, which is hidden behind an old-school waterdrop notch.
The phone’s 5G capability will be provided by a MediaTek Dimensity 700, a step down from the Dimensity 720 5G found in the Galaxy A32 5G. According to rumors, it’ll have a 6.48-inch 23401080 screen, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, and 64 or 128 GB of storage. It will ship with Android 11 pre-installed, and all of these features will be powered by a large 5,000 mAh battery.
The Galaxy A13 5G is unabashedly unexceptional in terms of design, but that’s precisely the point of the phone. For an expected $290, you’ll get a 5G phone from a reputable brand with all of the essential features of a user-friendly smartphone, including a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Galaxy A13 5G could be announced in early 2022, which means it’ll compete for attention with the Galaxy S21 FE and Galaxy S22.
