Samsung is said to update its Galaxy A line of smartphones with devices with minimal design upgrades compared to the 2021 variants. Now, shots of a rear panel allegedly belonging to one of these next-gen smartphones has reportedly been taken from its factory. It shows camera cut-outs that may also be present in the rest of this "A13's" siblings.

The Galaxy A13 is tipped to become one of the cheapest next-gen Samsung smartphones on its launch. Despite this, it has been designed to look much like that of putative higher-end siblings such as the A53 and A73. Or rather, this is the case according to new leaks emanating from the blog 91Mobiles.

The latest such report from the blog seeks to support another asserting that the Galaxy A13 had gone into mass production in Greater Noida, India, where Samsung maintains one of its mobile device factories. This one contains alleged hands-on images of the plant's output thus far: the supposed smartphone's rear panel.

It does indeed have the simple, corner-mounted camera-hump esthetic that is not much different from others seen, for example, the Galaxy A52 series. Accordingly, the A13 as depicted could have up to 4 cameras, although its version of the alleged 2022 Galaxy A rear panel is made of shiny plastic, which might not be the case for something like the A53.

On the other hand, a possible identifier etched into the inside of this component starts "A13 LTE...", implying that the device does not have 5G, in contradiction of earlier leaks. Therefore, the A13 has both LTE/4G and 5G variants (one of which could have the Dimensity 700 SoC and a 6.48-inch display), or this particular tip in the Samsung smartphone leak saga is less than accurate.
