With the Galaxy A14 5G, Samsung is kicking off 2023 with a low-cost phone update that includes some shrewd improvements. The A14 will be less expensive than the A13 5G at $199 (KES 24,606). While leaving many other core specifications alone, it offers a higher-res display and selfie camera than its predecessor.
Over the past few months, there have been numerous leaks of information about the Galaxy A14 5G, and it appears that most of it was accurate. The new Exynos 1330 processor, which replaces the MediaTek chip that powered the Galaxy A13 5G, powers the phone’s 6.6-inch Full HD+ display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The battery capacity remains at 5,000 mAh.
The A14 5G has 4GB/6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. It also has a microSD card slot for an additional 1TB of storage. The A14 5G has three cameras at the back: a 50MP main camera, a 2MP depth camera, and a 2MP macro camera. The front camera has been upgraded to a 13-megapixel sensor.
The first Samsung phone with Android 13 and One UI (Core) 5.0 running on it out of the box is the Galaxy A14 5G. However, the A14 5G won’t receive any preferential treatment when it comes to software updates and is only qualified for two years of OS upgrades and four years of security updates.
