Full announcement. Samsung Galaxy A23 4G is an inexpensive smartphone with optical stabilization (+prices and first looks)

Formally, the Samsung Galaxy A23 4G smartphone wasannounced in early March. In fact, full information, including the brand of the chipset and some prices, has become available only now. Time to get acquainted.

The chipset is the hit of the season Qualcomm Snapdragon 680. So we don't expect particularly high performance. It will be around 250 thousand points in AnTuTu.

Memory. From 4 to 8 GB of operational, 64 or 128 GB of permanent. The younger version of 4 + 64 GB, apparently, will not be sold in all countries.

Screen of the maximum possible characteristics for a given chipset. Diagonal 6.6 ″ (105 cm²), resolution 1080 × 2408 (400 ppi), maximum refresh rate slightly increased to 90 Hz. Not AMOLED.

The battery is average, 5000 mAh. Charging moderately fast - 25 watts.

There are many cameras. The front has a resolution of 8 MP.Rear quartet 50+5+2+2 MP (wide, macro, depth sensor). All attention, of course, on the main camera. It is known that it is equipped with optical stabilization, which, of course, is immensely cool for devices in this price category. Unfortunately, it is completely unclear what kind of sensor is used here. If it turns out that here, for example, the Sony IMX766, as in Realme 9 Pro +, then we may well have a budget hit of all time. If the inexpensive Samsung ISOCELL JN1, then don't expect much, despite all the available stabilization.

Other. There will be an NFC module, but not in all countries (in particular, it is in Kazakhstan, but it is not in the Philippines). Type-C, a fifth Wi-Fi, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner - everything is fine here.

So far, I have found prices only for a couple of countries and only for the average variety of 6 + 128 GB. In India, it will cost ₹19,499 (₽24,500, $255), and in Malaysia it will cost RM999 (₽23,200, $242).

The Galaxy A23 has already made its way into the hands of Nigerian bloggers, so here are a couple of first looks.
