Samsung unveils $200 5G Galaxy phone

The Samsung Galaxy A14 5G, which costs just under $200, is the cheapest 5G smartphone in the Galaxy portfolio and the first Galaxy A smartphone of 2023. It is billed as the Galaxy A13 5G successor for 2021.

It was announced at CES 2023, and at $199.99, the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G is $50 less expensive than the previous model, the Galaxy A13 5G, but it also has a new camera and a slightly larger screen.

The smartphone includes an FHD+ screen, which was missing on previous-generation models due to the A14 processor. It has a 6.5-inch LCD panel with a fast refresh rate of 90Hz. Aside from that, there are no significant changes to the hardware specifications. In fact, Samsung retrains the Galaxy A13 5G spec sheet.

The Galaxy A14 5G shares many similarities with the Galaxy A13 5G, which was released in December 2021. Both phones have similar-sized screens (6.6 inches vs. the A13 5G’s 6.5-inch display), 5G, a 90Hz adaptive refresh rate for smoother scrolling, a 5,000-mAh battery, 15-watt fast charging, and a triple-camera system with a 50-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel depth camera, and a 2-megapixel macro camera. The Mediatek Dimensity 700 processor powers the Galaxy A14 5G.

The front camera and price of the new A14 5G are among the most significant differences between it and the A13 5G. The Galaxy A14 5G has a 13-megapixel selfie camera, which should be a significant improvement over the 5-megapixel front camera on the A13 5G. The Galaxy A14 5G is also $50 less expensive than the Galaxy A13 5G, which debuted at $250 and has the same 64GB storage capacity. Both phones also have a microSD card slot for up to 1TB of storage.
