As Samsung usually keeps a pretty stable pricing structure, we’d estimate that the Galaxy A23 5G will come in around the £229/$299/€249 mark.
The only pricing leak we have suggests it might cost a little more, but we’d take it with a pinch of salt. Gizpie has shared what it claims are prices from a European retailer, and pin the phone around €300 (well, €301.76, to be precise). The site doesn’t share which retailer the info comes from though, and that oddly precise (and clearly off) pricing has us doubting things a little.
What are the Samsung A23 5G specs and features?
Samsung may not have announced when or where the A23 5G will go on sale, or how much it will cost, but it has revealed the phone’s key specs and design.
It bears a striking resemblance to the other A-series devices from 2022, which is unsurprising really. Its specs are also similar to its 4G sibling.
The phone comes with a 6.6in flat display with a Full HD+ resolution and the Infinity-V front camera that employs a shallow teardrop notch to accommodate the lens. Samsung hasn’t confirmed the display’s refresh rate, which suggests it’s only 60Hz – a downgrade from the 90Hz panel on the 4G model, which also boasted Gorilla Glass 5 protection that is unmentioned here.
Samsung hasn’t confirmed the chip that powers the phone, though leaked Geekbench results suggest that it uses the Snapdragon 695 5G, a natural replacement for the Snapdragon 680 4G in the Galaxy A23.
RAM is however confirmed to be available in 4, 6, or 8GB, while storage options are 64 or 128GB – including an expandable microSD card slot.
The cameras have also been confirmed, with a 50Mp OIS main + 8Mp ultrawide + 2Mp macro + 2Mp depth sensor, and an 8Mp front-camera.
The battery is 5000mAh, and while Samsung hasn’t confirmed charging speeds, it’s likely the same 25W capacity as the 4G model.
As you’d expect, the phone will ship with Android 12 and running Samsung’s One UI 4.1.
