With 2021 coming to an end, we expect brands to be focusing on refreshing and updating their smartphone lineup right about now. Samsung is not wasting any time in this regard. The company has just announced its latest A-series phone in the US. To note, the new Galaxy A13 is its cheapest 5G phone yet. Here, we will look at the specs, features, and expected price of the Samsung Galaxy A13 5G in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy A13 5G Overview:
Design and Display
From the front, the Galaxy A13 5G is indistinguishable from its predecessor. It features the same 6.5-inch Infinity V display with HD+ resolution as the A12. However, it now has a 90Hz refresh rate. Samsung says it’s an adaptive refresh rate as well, but there is no mention of different scenarios and refresh rates that it can adapt to.
Over at the back, Samsung has gotten rid of the square camera bump. The camera sensors are now placed vertically on their own.
Performance and Memory
As with affordable 5G phones, Galaxy A13 5G also relies on a Dimensity chipset. Here, Samsung has gone with Dimensity 700, which has two Cortex-A76 and six Cortex-A55 cores. The phone comes with 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded further with a Micro SD card. Samsung is yet to disclose the RAM capacity here.

Over at the back, Samsung has replaced the 48MP primary camera with a new 50MP sensor here. It is accompanied by two 2MP sensors for macro and portrait shots. Unfortunately, there is no ultrawide camera on the A13 5G—which was available in the A12. Similarly, the front camera has seen a downgrade from 8MP to 5MP as well.
Rest of the specs
Fueling the phone is a 5,000mAh battery that supports a charging speed of up to 15W. However, Samsung won’t be shipping any charger with the phone. There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner for biometric, while Galaxy A13 5G will also support NFC for Samsung Pay in select markets.
