The Samsung Galaxy M13 was unveiled quietly, an affordable 4G phone. For a while now we’ve been hearing that a 5G model is on the way and now we have official confirmation, courtesy of Amazon India. Additionally, the Galaxy M13 4G is launching in India as well, although it has a new look and a bigger battery, so it’s not quite the same phone.
The Samsung Galaxy M13 5G will launch on July 14 (Thursday next week). It has a different design compared to its 4G sibling – the rear camera has only two modules (if we had to guess, the ultra wide is gone) and they are flush with the back, no bump.
Amazon doesn’t reveal many details, but it does list support for eleven 5G bands, up to 12GB of RAM (virtual, of course, actual RAM capacity unknown) and a 5,000mAh battery (same as the 4G phone).
The 4G model is also coming on the 14th with 12GB of virtual RAM and a 6,000mAh battery. This is noteworthy as the international model has only 5,000mAh capacity. Has anything else changed for the launch in India? Well, the design has – there are still three modules on the back, but the bump is gone.
Leaked specs suggest that the Galaxy M13 5G will be powered by the Dimensity 700 chipset, which will deliver more processing power than the Exynos 850, not just next-gen connectivity. Also, there will be two memory configurations: 4/64GB and 6/128GB with a microSD slot available.
Rumors confirm that the ultra wide camera will be cut, leaving only the 50MP main module and a 2MP helper. The notched selfie camera on the front will drop down to 5MP (from 8MP). A bigger downgrade will be the screen – from 6.6” FHD+ to 6.5” HD+.
For reference, here is what the original Galaxy M13 looks like:
We’ll have to wait until next week to get an official confirmation on those as well as pricing info. Follow the Source links for Amazon India’s teaser pages. Meanwhile you can have a look at the Galaxy A13, Galaxy A13 5G and Galaxy F13, which are similar to the A13 duo.
