Months after its global debut, Samsung officially launched the Galaxy A23 5G in India. It’s a mid-range smartphone with Snapdragon 695 mobile silicon and an OIS camera setup. Here, we will get into the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G in more detail, including its specs, features, expected price, and availability in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy A23 5G Overview:
Back in March 2022, Samsung launched the vanilla Galaxy A23 along with the rest of the 2022 A-lineup. It was powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 680 chipset. The chip has now been replaced with a 5G-enabled SoC in the A23 5G, among other changes.
Design and Display
The 5G version for the Samsung Galaxy A23 sports a similar design to its 4G counterpart. The back has an Ambient Edge design, as we have seen in almost all mid-range phones in the series in 2022. Over on the front, it still has the same-old Infinity-V notch design. Even there is no difference in the color options.
The display on the front measures a 6.6-inch FHD+ LCD screen. Samsung has not yet confirmed the refresh rate and the protection used on the screen. For reference, the 4G variant has a 90Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
Performance and Memory
In charge of things inside is an octa-core Snapdragon 695 SoC. Like the Snapdragon 680 used on the 4G model, it is based on an energy-efficient 4nm process but features a more powerful CPU and GPU configuration.
The base variant of the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G ships with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. You can configure the phone with up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Furthermore, Samsung even offers storage expansion of up to 1TB using an external MicroSD card.
Samsung Galaxy A23 5G inherits the quad-camera setup as its 4G sibling. Leading the line is a 50MP primary shooter, which even has Optical Image Stabilization. Accompanying it is a 5MP sensor with an ultrawide lens.
In addition, we get a couple of 2MP sensors for macro and portrait shots. The V-shaped notch on the front encloses an 8MP sensor for selfies and video calls.
Rest of the Specs
The battery specification has also remained almost unchanged. Samsung A23 5G packs a 5,000mAh battery. The charging speed is not confirmed, although it was revealed to be 25W by an FCC listing. Like the rest of Samsung’s 2022 lineup, it boots Android 12 out of the box with OneUI 4.1 on top.
