Rumor | Samsung's Galaxy A13 5G goes into mass production in India
Samsung is currently thought to have a successor to the Galaxy A12, one of its most budget smartphones, in the works. Despite its low-end nature, it is touted to rock a 50MP main camera and to have a still-respectable, if slightly aging, Dimensity 700 chipset. Now, it seems these rumors could be confirmed or denied soon as its specs have reportedly been set in stone.
This is because a line at the Greater Noida Samsung smartphone plant in India is said to have been commissioned to produce the alleged A13 5G. Therefore, units of the device might already be in existence, with all of its finalized features in place.
They are thought to include a potentially shiny plastic rear panel, so as to keep its costs down. The internals found within this chassis are slated to power a build of One UI based on Android 11, which might be a little underwhelming for a new phone thought to launch in 2022.
Nevertheless, the Galaxy A13 5G might make up for that with a price of as little as ~US$250 (or ~INR 18,760, as it might be in one of its major target markets).
