Samsung launched two new smartphones in India under the M series today. This includes the Galaxy M13 and M13 5G. In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, availability, and expected price of the Samsung Galaxy M13 4G (India) and M13 5G in Nepal.
Samsung Galaxy M13 4G (India) Overview:
For those unaware, Samsung already has a 4G smartphone with the Galaxy M13 moniker in Spain and other European markets. But it is not the same phone that Amazon is currently teasing in India. Samsung already sells F13, which is very similar to the Europen M13, in India—if you were wondering the purpose behind the Indian variant.
The Indian variant of the Samsung Galaxy M13 4G sports a different design, given away by the lack of a camera bump at the back. Still, the punch-hole cutout on the front remains the same. It is available in Aqua Green, Midnight Blue, and Stardust Brown color options.
The M13 has a 6.6-inch Full HD+ resolution display that is protected by Gorilla Glass 5 to avoid accidental drops and damage. Likewise, the phone is rated to have a brightness of 480 nits. Sadly this variant of the M13 doesn’t bring a higher refresh or touch sampling rate.
In terms of performance, the smartphone is powered by an Exynos 850 chipset. It comes with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. Also, you can expand the memory via microSD card and RAM up to 12GB with a feature called RAM Plus.
Moreover, like most Samsung phones in 2022, the M13 4G boots on the latest Android 12-based OneUI 4 Core. For starters, the Core version of Samsung’s UI is the trimmed-down version of the usual One UI specifically designed for entry-level and mid-range Samsung Galaxy phones.
Rest of the specs
Talking about the cameras, it has two of them at the back which include a 50MP main sensor, a 5MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP depth sensor. On the front, it has an 8MP lens. The phone is powered by a 6000mAh battery which is bigger than the 5000mAh of its European counterpart. It supports 15W fast charging and fortunately, the charger is included inside the box.

Samsung Galaxy M13 5G Overview:
Along with the Galaxy M13 4G, Samsung has also launched the M13 5G in the Indian market. Like its 4G sibling, Galaxy M13 5G won’t feature a camera bump. That being said, it only has two camera sensors on the back which comprise a 50MP primary sensor and a 2MP secondary lens. Here, Samsung has ditched the ultrawide module leaving just the duo of a 50MP primary and a 2MP auxiliary sensor.
Unlike the M13 4G, Samsung has chosen a MediaTek chipset over the Exynos in the 5G model. It is powered by the 7nm-based Dimensity 700 with two Cortex-A76 and six Cortex-A55 cores. For connectivity, the handset also supports 11 5G bands.
The Galaxy M13 5G sports a 6.5-inch screen with a refresh rate of 90Hz. However, compared to its 4G counterpart, Samsung has reduced the brightness from 480 nits to 400 nits and has incorporated Gorilla Glass 3 protection rather than Gorilla Glass 5 protection.
Moving on, the device is fueled by a 5,000mAh battery and supports 15W fast charging. Like its 4G sibling, it comes with Android 12-based OneUI Core 4. In addition, both smartphones come with kernel-level Samsung Knox security.
