Samsung has announced a new affordable 5G smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G model. The 4G only variant has already been on the market since March, and from an aesthetic point of view the two phones are similar.
The Samsung Galaxy A23 5G comes with a 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with FullHD+ resolution (the official release does not specify whether the refresh rate is 60Hz or 90Hz), Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 processor, quadruple camera with 50 Megapixel main sensor that it has and OIS (big white ball in this chapter), up to 8 GB of RAM and a 5000 mAh battery with fast charging at 25W.

Full specifications for the Samsung Galaxy A23 5G:

  • 6.6-inch Infinity-V IPS LCD display with FullHD+ resolution (2408 x 1080 pixels), 20:9 aspect ratio, Corning Gorilla Glass 5 protection;

We don't have information about the price yet, but last year's Samsung Galaxy A22 5G model was launched with a starting price in Europe of 229 euros. I suspect that this smartphone will have a similar starting price, and for a phone with a good processor, camera with OIS, 5G connectivity and a fairly large battery, I say the price is acceptable.
