Earlier this month, Samsung announced the Galaxy A13 and Galaxy A23, and today, both phones launched in the Indian market. These are the budget offerings from the brand, and the starting prices for both phones are under ₹20,000. A lot of specs are similar for both the phones, such as the display, camera sensors, battery size, etc. But as the names suggest, the Galaxy A23 has some extra features in its arsenal.

Design-wise, both phones are quite similar except for the camera module design. There is a rectangular camera module on the Galaxy A23 that has the Quad camera setup and LED flash in it. But, in the case of the Galaxy A13, there is no camera housing. The fingerprint scanner is present on the right side for both phones, and there is a waterdrop notch on the front.

In terms of the specs, both phones have the same display. It is a 6.6-inch TFT LCD with a Full-HD+ resolution and Gorilla Glass 5 protection. Samsung mentions a 90Hz refresh-rate in the case of the Galaxy A23, but there is no such mention for the Galaxy A13 on the official page.

Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy A13 has Snapdragon 680 SOC, whereas the Galaxy A23 has Exynos 850. Both of these are non-5G chipsets. It is interesting that Exynos 850 is the same chip that powered the Galaxy F12, and that phone launched almost two years ago for around ₹10,000. The A23 comes with the same SOC and almost double the price tag. As for the Galaxy A13, it has Snapdragon 680, and that SOC powers the recently launched Redmi 10 2022 which is priced around ₹10,000 too.

In terms of cameras, both phones have the same sensors. So, there is a primary 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 lens, a 5MP ultrawide, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor. But, the Galaxy A23 gets OIS for the primary camera, but that is not present for the Galaxy A13. Also, there is 4K 30fps video recording support for the Galaxy A23.

Both phones have a 5,000mAh battery and support 25W charging. And yes, the 25W charger does not come in the box.

Finally, OneUI 4.1 based on Android 12 runs out of the box.
