Samsung introduced its Galaxy A23, which was a 4G smartphone, back in March 2022. Now, the South Korean giant is in the process of launching a 5G version of its Galaxy A23 device. Folks over at Gizpie managed to get hold of the price list from a retailer in Europe. The listing suggests that the new 5G smartphone with 64GB internal storage will be priced at around €300 (approx. ₹24,500). Reportedly, the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G will make its way to the US, Europe, and India soon.
The Galaxy A23 5G device bearing the model number SM-A236E/DS was spotted on the BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) certification website earlier in July 2022, hinting that it could launch soon in India. The device earlier visited the FCC certification, revealing its battery capacity and charging specifications. It was also listed on the Geekbench database, which confirmed the new 5G processor.
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G is expected to inherit the design and cameras from its 4G counterpart. However, it will get a slightly more powerful processor and 5G connectivity. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 695 chipset as opposed to the Snapdragon 680 chipset of the Galaxy A23 4G. This processor also does duty in the OnePlus Nord CE 2 Lite 5G, Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G, Realme 9 Pro 5G, iQOO Z6 5G, Vivo T1 5G, and others.
