A page with a 5G version of the Galaxy A23 smartphone has appeared on the official Samsung website. Since the device has acquired support for fifth-generation cellular communications, the novelty has received a different chipset and several changes. There is also speculation that the company has made adjustments to the display by lowering the screen refresh rate to 60 Hz, but there is no official confirmation yet.
The specifications of the Galaxy A23 5G do not include the name and model of the chipset, but Geekbench results show that this is the Snapdragon 695 – an upgraded version of the Snapdragon 690 with a 15% increase in processor performance and a 30% increase in graphics accelerator. The Snapdragon 695 is built on TSMC’s 6nm process and uses Kryo 660 (Cortex-A78/A55) processor cores. In terms of memory, the manufacturer offers modifications with 4, 6, and 8 GB of RAM and 64 or 128 GB of storage, which can be expanded using microSD cards up to 1 TB.
The Galaxy A23 5G display is a 6.6-inch FHD+ LCD panel. The size is the same as the 4G version, which has a screen refresh rate of 90Hz. Specifications are not mentioned here. Either way, it’s an Infinity-V display with a notch for an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The main camera has not changed and includes a 50 megapixel main module with f / 1.8 aperture and optical image stabilization, as well as an additional 5 megapixel (ultra wide-angle, f / 2.2) and two modules responsible for macro and depth. The battery has a capacity of 5000 mAh, the charging power is not specified (on the 4G version – 25 W). According to the FCC base, it is also 25 watts. The novelty works on the Android 12 operating system with the OneUI 4.1 proprietary shell.
There is no official launch date for the Galaxy A23 5G yet, as well as the cost of the new smartphone. Last year’s Galaxy A22 5G model at the start of sales was priced at 230 euros (about 14,480 rubles). The Galaxy A23 started at 300 euros (18,885 rubles), so the 5G version should be even more expensive.
