Samsung could soon launch a 5G version of its Galaxy A23. Appeared on Geekbench, the smartphone would carry a Snapdragon 695 chip from Qualcomm to do this.
Samsung’s Galaxy A family could expand shortly, already boasting a large number of smartphones which, in France, this year range from the very affordable Galaxy A03 to the Galaxy A53 – the A73 is not available in France to date -, through the Galaxy A13 and Galaxy A33 that we have also tested. Only models from the Galaxy A33 are compatible with 5G, less expensive terminals being satisfied with compatibility with 4G. However, that could change.
As noted MySmartPrice, a smartphone stamped SM-A236U has entered the lists of the benchmark site Geekbench. This echoes the Galaxy A23 4G, stamped SM-235 (unavailable to date in France), and looks like a Galaxy A23 5G. The mention of the device in question is accompanied by some characteristics, including that of its CPU consisting of eight cores, six being clocked at 1.8 GHz and two at 2.21 GHz. The site also mentions the GPU integrated into the chip, an Adreno 619, which identifies the Snapdragon 695 chipset equipped with a 5G modem.
The Geekbench lists also show that, unless changed, the smartphone will be equipped with 4 GB of RAM and that it will run on Android 12. If it retains the characteristics of the Galaxy A23 4G, the smartphone should also ship a 6.6-inch LCD screen, a 50-megapixel main photo sensor, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module, a 5000 mAh battery and a fingerprint reader located on its ignition button. This Galaxy A23 5G could soon sign the arrival of the 2022 generation of Galaxy A2x in Europe, the appearance of smartphones in Geekbench generally signaling the imminence of their announcement.
