Samsung is bringing 5G access to more affordable Galaxy devices with each passing year. Last year, the most affordable 5G Galaxy smartphone was the Galaxy A42 5G. This year, the company’s cheapest 5G smartphone is the Galaxy A22 5G. Next year, the most affordable 5G smartphone from Samsung could cost even lower.
According to a new report from GalaxyClub, Samsung is working on a new 5G smartphone with model number SM-A136B. The company could launch it as the Galaxy A13 5G. Since the Galaxy A12 costs less than $180 in the US and €170 in Europe, we expect the Galaxy A13 5G to carry a price tag that’s lower than $200. The Galaxy A12 was launched in December 2020, so we can expect Samsung to unveil the Galaxy A13 towards the end of 2021 or in early 2022.
Not much else is known about the Galaxy A13 5G. The Galaxy A12 features a 6.5-inch HD+ LCD display, a MediaTek Helio P35 processor, 2GB/3GB/4GB/6GB RAM, and 32GB/64GB/128GB internal storage. It has a 48MP quad-camera setup at the rear and an 8MP selfie camera. It has a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. We can expect the Galaxy A13 5G to feature a faster processor, higher RAM in the entry-level version, and maybe a better screen.
We expect more information about the Galaxy A13 5G to surface over the next few months. What do you expect to see in Samsung’s cheapest 5G smartphone? Let us know in the comments section below.
