Samsung announces the arrival of the Galaxy A13 in France. The entry-level smartphone has a relatively complete technical sheet where you find a large screen, a large battery and a quadruple photo sensor, all at a controlled price. The Galaxy A13 is indeed sold at 199 euros. And it is already available on the brand’s official store.
Like every year, Samsung is gradually rolling out its catalog of smartphones for the year 2022. After the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra that we tested in writing, after the Galaxy A53 and A33 that we also took in hand at the occasion of their launch in France, here is the Galaxy A13, the brand’s most affordable smartphone this year after the Galaxy A03. Note that this is not the 5G version of the Galaxy A13, but the 4G version.

The Galaxy A13 succeeds the Galaxy A12, of course. It incorporates some features, but improves others. Among the common points, we find in particular the materials of the hull, in polycarbonate for the back and the edges, and in mineral glass (Gorilla Glass 5) for the front. We also find the battery of 5000mAhwhich should offer a range of about two days, the 15 watt fast charge and the fingerprint reader positioned on the edge.
The Galaxy A13 keeps a big battery and benefits from a new screen
Finally, we find a similar configuration at the photo level with five sensors, four of which are at the rear. Of these five sensors, four are identical between the A12 and the A13. The sensor 5 megapixels with ultra-wide-angle lens opening at f/2.2. A macro sensor 2 megapixels with lens opening at f/2.4. And a 2 megapixel sensor for calculating distances for portrait mode. And the selfie sensor of 8 megapixel with lens opening at f/2.2. The fifth sensor of the Galaxy A13 is a model 50 megapixels with lens opening at f/1.8 and phase detection autofocus.
Besides this main sensor, two other important changes are worth noting. First, the screen. Although it is still a PLS LCD panel with notch, it is slightly larger (6.6 inches, against 6.5 inches) and the definition is improved. It goes from HD+ to Full HD+. The resolution then takes off, going from 270 pixels per inch to 400 pixels per inch. Then the SOC. The MediaTek Helio P35 gives way to theExynos 880, an octo-core engraved in 8 nm. He is accompanied in France by 4 GB of RAM and of 64 GB of storage. These are expandable through a dedicated microSDXC port.
The smartphone works on Android 12 and the One UI overlay, here in version 4.1. It comes in two colors: black and white. And its recommended retail price is 199 euros. Note that the smartphone is already available if you are interested.
