Four new phones from Samsung from Galaxy A series and Galaxy M series.
Galaxy A series and M series are more budget-friendly phones from Samsung. The Galaxy A12 and A23 are successors to the earlier A13 and A22 models. Similarly, Galaxy M23 and Galaxy M33 are the successors of the M22 and M32.
Galaxy A13 and A23
Although the prices have not been revealed officially, the A12 was priced at ₹12,999 for the 4GB/64GB storage variant and ₹15,499 for the 6GB/128GB storage variant.
We can expect the A13 to be priced similarly but A12 was overpriced for what it was offering.
Galaxy A13 will be powered by an octa-core processor (exact SoC is not officially revealed) and will feature a 6.6-inch TFT 1080×2408 display. Compared to the A12 which had a 6.5-inch TFT 720×1600 display, it is an upgrade for the Galaxy A13.
The camera gets a slight upgrade with a 50MP primary camera compared to the 48MP primary camera in the Galaxy A12. The other lens used are 5MP ultra-wide lens, 2MP depth lens and a 2MP macro lens, which is the same as in Galaxy A12.
The front camera features an 8MP camera.
The Galaxy A13 will feature 3 variants with 3/4/6 GB RAM and 32GB/64GB/128GB storage. The battery remains the same with 5000mAh but gets an upgrade with 25W fast charging.
The phone weighs 195g with 165.1×76.4×8.8mm in size and will only have LTE (4G) connectivity.
The release date and pricing has not yet been officially revealed.
Galaxy A23 and A13 are very similar to each other in looks and specifications except for the processor and RAM/Storage variants.
The Galaxy A23 will feature also feature an octa-core processor but it will be different than the one in A13, probably a better performing one. (SoC not revealed officially)
The camera, battery, screen size and display is the same as in Galaxy A13 but the base model will have 4GB of RAM with an option of 6GB and 8GB RAM. The storage will have 64GB and 128GB storage.
Galaxy M23 and M33
Galaxy M23 and Galaxy M33 are also very similar to each with only minor differences in specs. Both of them will be powered by an octa-core processor but both will have different SoC (officially unknown).
On the display side, both the Galaxy M23 and Galaxy M33 will feature 6.6-inch, 1080×5408 TFT display.
Considering that both Galaxy M21 and M31 had an sAMOLED display, this choice of display seems weird unless it comes with a significantly lower price comparatively.
Both of them will have 128GB of storage and MicroSD support up to 1TB. However, the Galaxy M23 will have just one variant with 4GB of RAM and the Galaxy M33 will have 6GB/8GB variants.
In the camera department, Galaxy M23 will have a triple camera setup with a 50MP main lens, 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP depth lens. The front camera will have an 8MP camera.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy M33 will have a quad-camera setup with a 50MP main camera, 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP depth and 2MP macro. The front camera will have an 8MP camera.
For the battery, the Galaxy M23 will have a 5000mAh battery and Galaxy M33 will have a 6000mAh battery.
