Update | Samsung Galaxy A14 4G debuts for less than A13 in India
Update: The Galaxy A14 is now official and available through Samsung online in India. The smartphone does indeed start for INR 13,999 (~US$169) with 64GB of internal storage - albeit as a limited-time introductory offer, after which it may revert to a price of INR 16,499 (~US$199).
Original Article: The Galaxy A14 4G is now reportedly ready to join 2023 siblings such as the M14 on the Indian market. This device has a Helio G80 SoC rather than something newer like the Exynos 1330 - however, it might have its fans with almost S23-like looks at a much lower price.
The A14 4G (or SM-A145x) is now projected to go for as little as INR 13,999 - around the same as its US$169 starting price in other markets. The non-5G A13, on the other hand, started at INR 14,999 (~US$181).
Then again, its 2023 counterpart may be stuck with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage as a base model with that potentially attractive price. Furthermore, there is no mention of the A13's top-end 6GB/128GB configuration for the newer device in its supposed new region.
The A14 also misses out on a 90Hz display, and relies on the cut-down Core version of One UI. Therefore, t may have to rely on its updated triple rear camera set-up to drive its sales should it really launch in India soon.
