Samsung has unveiled two new smartphones – Galaxy M23 and M33 in its M-series. Both are budget devices with 5G connectivity. The phone Galaxy M23 succeeds last year’s Galaxy M22. So, let’s dive into the specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Samsung Galaxy M23 5G in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy M23 5G Overview
Design and Display
The new Samsung Galaxy M23 brings a 6.6-inch TFT display with Full HD+ resolution. Though we guessed there would be a 120Hz refresh rate on the screen, Samsung has mentioned the standard 60Hz which is a little disappointing. Even last year’s Galaxy M22 had a 90Hz Super AMOLED screen. Further, the device boasts 400 PPI density and an 82.3% screen-to-body ratio.
The device weighs 198 grams and measures 8.4mm in thickness. There is a rectangular camera cutout at the back panel which holds the triple camera setup. It is available in two different color options – Deep Green and Light Blue.
Performance and Memory
The phone boots on Android 12 on top of One UI 4.1. The system is powered up with an unspecified octa-core processor that clocks at the speed of 2.2GHz and 1.8GHz. With this information, we guess that Galaxy M23 will integrate Qualcomm Snapdragon 750G chipset.
As per memory, you can see a single configuration of 4GB RAM coupled with 128GB internal storage of eMMC 5.1. You can also expand the latter with the help of a dedicated microSD card slot.
Camera and Audio
Moving on, there is a triple camera setup inside the rectangular camera module on the rear panel of Galaxy M23 5G. It has a 50MP primary sensor with an f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP ultrawide lens whose field of view is unknown, and a 2MP depth shooter for portrait shots.
Further, it has an 8MP selfie snapper inside the tear-drop notch above the screen. Both rear and front cameras can record videos up to 1080p at 30 frames per second. For audio, there is a loudspeaker system accompanied by a 3.5mm headphone jack for music and calls.
Rest of the specs
Under the hood, Galaxy M23 gets its fuel from a 5,000mAh battery whose charging capability is yet to be known. Unfortunately, Samsung will not include a compatible charger in the box. Further, there is Samsung Knox Security in the device which comes along with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometrics.
Other sensors include an accelerometer, gyro, proximity, and Virtual Proximity Sensing. Lastly, the connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS), and a USB Type-C 2.0 port.
