Are you on a tight budget but still want to own a 5G-enabled Samsung smartphone? Don’t fret as the company just brought the Galaxy A13 5G to the country.
The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G was officially launched locally alongside the Galaxy A04s and Galaxy A23 5G. First introduced abroad back in December 2021, the device is powered by the trusty MediaTek Dimensity 700 CPU, one of the first chips made to run on affordable 5G smartphones.
Everything else about this device is to be expected. There’s the standard 6.5-inch display with an HD+ resolution and a speedy 90Hz refresh rate.
A waterdrop notch on top holds an underwhelming 5-megapixel selfie snapper. But on the back, we do have a sharp 50-megapixel main camera, joined by a 2-megapixel macro lens and 2-megapixel depth sensor.
Being a Samsung device, it runs on One UI interface that’s based on last generation’s Android 11 operating system. It also managed to have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for security.
Like everyone else, it comes with a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charger to juice it up.
The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G is available in two RAM and storage variants in the Philippines. There’s the 4GB/128GB model for Php13,990 while the 6GB/128GB is at Php14,990. It is now available on Samsung’s official website and through offline stores and distributors across the country.
