Like every other smartphone manufacturer, Samsung has also jumped on the 5G bandwagon, even for its budget segment handsets. We saw the launch of the Samsung Galaxy A23 4G in March, and now the 5G variant is tipped to debut soon. The Galaxy A23 5G has made it to the FCC database bearing the model code SM-A236.

As the tradition goes, Samsung produces different variants of its handsets for specific markets. That’s why FCC has listed various Samsung Galaxy A23 5G model numbers according to the storage capacity and Dual-Sim functionality. Per the listing, all models will support 5G connectivity, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, MicroSD slots, and dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (ac).

Previously, the Galaxy A23 5G was also spotted on the Geekbench website, which revealed the Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 SoC inside. It boasts significant gains over the Snapdragon 680 chipset used in the vanilla A23.

A 5,000 mAh Li-Po battery will power the A23 5G with the exact 25W Quick charging as its predecessor. Per the 3D renders of the latest Samsung 5G mobile, a 6.55-inches display is expected to cover the front with an Infinity-V notch at the top. This notch will expectedly house an 8MP front shooter, while a quad-camera layout will probably sit at the rear.

The primary lens will likely be a 50MP lens aided by an 8MP ultra-wide, 2MP macro, and 2MP depth sensors. Dimensionally, the A23 5G seems quite similar to its 4G sibling with an 8.5mm thickness. It will also share a side-mounted thumbprint sensor and a 3.5mm audio jack with the vanilla A23.

The A53 5G is expected to begin its journey from some European and Asian markets before spreading to other regions, chances of the handset coming to  Pakistan are quite thin but we'll keep you in the loop as the story develops.
