Samsung is reportedly working on the Samsung Galaxy A13 5G, its cheapest 5G offering yet. The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G is going to succeed the Galaxy A12 that launched in November last year, but that was a 4G device. The Samsung Galaxy A13 5G is expected to be priced under 200 euros ( 17,300 approx) which will make it Samsung’s cheapest 5G offering yet. Given that access to 5G has become more widespread thanks to companies like Xiaomi and Realme, Samsung too is hoping to cash in and come up with some affordable 5G smartphones as well.

As per a report from the Galaxy Club, Samsung’s Galaxy A13 5G has the model number AM-A136B and will have 5G support. The report also states that the Galaxy A13 5G might be announced around November this year and considering that the Galaxy A12 was launched around the same time last year. However, before one gets too excited it would be good to note that Samsung has not officially announced anything about a new Galaxy A-series phone with 5G connectivity and a cheap price point.

Currently, Samsung’s cheapest 5G offering is the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G in India. The Galaxy A22 5G was launched in July last year at a starting price of 19,999. The Galaxy A22 5G has the octa-core MediaTek Dimensity 700 SoC under the hood, a 90Hz 6.6-inch full HD+ Infinity-V display, it also has a triple rear camera, and a 5,000 mAh battery with 15W fast charging support.

While we wait for the affordable 5G device, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G smartphone in India via a special launch event today. The phone was launched in the UK back in March this year, and now, months later, Samsung is bringing the smartphone to India. The newly launched Galaxy A52s 5G smartphone is priced at 35,999 for 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant and 37,499 for 8GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. It is available for purchase across retail stores, Samsung.com, and on leading online portals starting September 1, which is today.

As a part of the introductory offer, consumers can avail cashback of 3,000 on purchasing a Samsung Galaxy A52s 5G mobile via HDFC Bank credit card, debit card and EMI transactions. They can also avail an exchange bonus of 3,000 if they upgrade their old smartphones. In addition to that, interested buyers can also avail attractive no-cost EMI offers with zero down payment and zero processing charges across major banks and NBFC partners.
