Regularly (and often annually) manufacturers update their range. Following the (inconspicuous) introduction of the Galaxy A04, Samsung has announced the forthcoming successor to the A22, the A23 5G, which is slightly more expensive than its predecessor.
The A23 5G replaces the MediaTek A22 series SoC with a Snapdragon 695 5G paired with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage (expandable up to 1TB via microSD card). This is a change from the previous model, which offered two configurations: 4G with an AMOLED screen and 5G with an LCD screen. Only one version will be available for the A23.
In terms of screen, Samsung has opted to offer a 6.6-inch LCD (TFT) display (slightly larger than the A22) with a 120Hz refresh rate and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. The fingerprint sensor will be placed on the edge and the selfie sensor on the 8 MP will be placed in the cutout (in the form of a water drop).
The rear photo module has an optically stabilized 50 MP main sensor. There are also many other sensors, namely:
ultra wide-angle 5 MP;
- macro 2 MP;
- a sensor designed for 2 MP portraits.
Samsung has built in a 5,000mAh battery that is compatible with 25W fast charging. The manufacturer did not include a charger in the box, which is becoming more common. Like the A04, the device will run Android 12 with One UI 4.1 overlay.
The device will be available in France in 3 colors: black, blue and white at a price of 319 €.
