Samsung’s quietly announced a new entry-level smartphone today, and it’s not part of the incredibly successful A series. Instead, it’s part of the much more confusing and less well defined M family. Meet the Galaxy M13.
As the first digit strongly implies, this is a basic smartphone which should be rather affordable, although we can not comment on that since Samsung has not actually unveiled a price for it. That said, expect the M13 to be offered in Europe at least.
The phone comes with a 6.6-inch FHD + screen with a V-shaped notch, the Exynos 850 chipset at the helm, 4GB of RAM, 64 or 128GB of expandable storage, and a 5,000 mAh battery. It has three rear cameras: a 50 MP f / 1.8 main, a 5 MP f / 2.2 ultrawide, and a 2 MP f / 2.4 depth sensor. Selfies are taken care of by an 8 MP f / 2.2 snapper.
The Galaxy M13 runs Android 12 under Samsung’s own One UI Core 4.1. “Core” means not all features seen in One UI 4.1 will be present, because of the entry-level hardware. This M13 does not have 5G support, although if we go by recent leaks an M13 5G should be launching pretty soon. The Galaxy M13 is going to be offered in Deep Green, Orange Copper, and Light Blue. It has dual-SIM functionality and a 3.5 mm headphone jack.
