The Galaxy A series of smartphones is set for a refresh soon. We have heard as much from well-placed sources at the company who further confided that the devices are also set for a release in the Kenyan market almost immediately, as has been the case in the past.
The same has been evident online where leaks have been unstoppable over the last few weeks.
While we have known that the Galaxy A23, for instance, is on the way, not many of us were expecting Samsung to release a 5G version of the device. Yet, according to leaks, that appears to be on course.
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G, as it is likely to be known as, is said to be powered by a Dimensity 700 chipset, the same chipset that we saw on what ended up being the country’s most affordable 5G smartphone, the Redmi Note 10 5G from Xiaomi.
Its 4G counterpart, the device we were expecting all along, is said to be powered by the Snapdragon 680, which has also showed up in a couple of devices that have been launched locally in recent days.
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G is said to feature a quad-camera setup at the back that is headlined by a 50-megapixel sensor.
In terms of differences between it and the 4G variant, that is said to be in the displays where the Galaxy A23 5G will sport a 6.5-inch display and the non-5G version will go with a 6.4-inch panel.
Given its pricing, the Samsung Galaxy A2x devices are usually some of the fast-moving units in Samsung’s lineup and the Galaxy A23 is expected to pick up from where the Galaxy A22 left. The device, and other Galaxy A series smartphones will benefit from Samsung’s generous software upgrade program.
