During CES 2023, Samsung debuted the Galaxy A14 5G. This revised version of the Android 13 smartphone has a new front-facing camera and a better display at a more affordable price. Samsung has managed to maintain the price of the updated gadget at a level that is lower than that of its predecessor while still including all of the improvements.
The South Korean company is updating one of its Galaxy A models only one month before it is expected to reveal the Galaxy S23. After the Galaxy A13 5G was introduced over a year ago, the Galaxy A14 5G has finally made its debut. So far, the most obvious differences are visible on the surface and include increased size.
Renders for Samsung’s next flagship, the Galaxy S23, suggest the company will adopt a more understated design aesthetic for the Galaxy A14. The flat back is finished with a spun metal material. Its 50 MP primary sensor is accompanied by 2 MP depth and macro sensors that maintain their same placement and resolution regardless of zoom. However, the lenses’ visibility has increased.
The front of the device has a 6.6-inch LCD screen with a higher resolution of FHD+, which is surrounded by substantial bezels, particularly at the bottom. Despite continuing with the notch design, Samsung has upgraded the selfie camera it holds to a 13 megapixel one. The fingerprint reader, which is located on the device’s side, has not changed.
Your expectations for a leaner body will be dashed. Compared to the Galaxy A13, the phone is somewhat thicker and heavier. The same gorilla glass and plastic chassis construction is used. Black is your sole color choice if you’re in the United States, but users in other parts of the world may choose from more upscale hues like green, red, and silver.
You’ll find the same octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 CPU behind the display. However, an Exynos 1330 model is likely to be available for purchase from Samsung in several international markets. Regardless, even the entry-level model features 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage. Last but not least, we’ve preserved the 5000 mAh battery capacity and the 15W charging speed.
When will the Galaxy A14 5G be available, and how much will it cost?
With its affordable $199 (€199) unlocked price and two major Android software updates, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G is a great value. It has been announced by AT&T that the gadget will be available to purchase on their network beginning on January 13. Even more so, Samsung has been vague about whether or not the Galaxy A13 would be phased out or given a permanent price cut.
