what you should Know
- Samsung quietly announced the Galaxy A23 5G in August.
- The phone is now available in the United States and retails for $299.
- The Galaxy A23 5G is powered by a Snapdragon 695 chipset and features a 120Hz display.
Android users in the US looking for an affordable smartphone now have another option to consider as Samsung has just launched the Galaxy A23 5G in the US.
The phone was originally announced in August with very little fanfare as availability appeared to be limited. However, this affordable Android phone offers a lot of value and could prove to be one of the best Android phones under $300.
That’s because Samsung is packing this phone with specs that will make even last year’s Galaxy A32 5G jealous. This includes the impressive Snapdragon 695 chipset and an even more impressive 6.6-inch FHD+ 120Hz display. Sure, you get a small notch and fairly large bezels, but some compromises have to be made at this price point.
On the back, you’ll find a 50MP quad-camera array, accompanied by a 5MP ultra-wide camera, as well as depth and macro sensors. There is an 8MP selfie camera on the front.
The Galaxy A23 5G offers a whopping 64GB of internal storage, but luckily you have microSD card support. Rounding out the specs, the phone comes with 4GB of RAM (the official spec also lists 6GB and 8GB RAM options along with 128GB of storage) and a 5,000mAh battery should provide plenty of juice to see you through the day and beyond.
Those interested in picking up Samsung’s latest mid-range offering won’t have to wait long—or at all. The Galaxy A23 5G is available starting today, September 1, at various retailers and carriers such as T-Mobile and AT&T. The device retails for $299.99 and is only available in black, though there will probably be some cases to dress it up a bit if you want a splash of color.
