Samsung's move to cut unit prices of the devices down

According to the site, this is the first time that Samsung will use a 50MP shooter from SK Hynix. The South Korean mobile maker previously used 10MP to 20MP from the said firm.

SK Hynix started supplying Samsung in 2019 with low-end image sensors for the front cameras on the Galaxy A and M series. But last year, it even supplied the 13MP camera of the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G suggesting that it has sensors for higher-end phones as well.

The Galaxy A23 5G is expected to be revealed during the second half of 2022. There will be a 4G version of the said device as well that is expected to launch in the first quarter of this year.

The devices will both feature a 50MP OIS wide camera, 5MP ultra-wide camera, 2MP macro camera, and 2MP bokeh camera.

Due to this move, it is reported that Samsung will be able to cut the unit prices of the devices down.

It is said that Samsung is aiming to ship 17.1 million units of the 4G LTE version and 12.6 million units of the 5G version.

This is more than the 19.4 million units of the Galaxy A21s from two years ago according to market research firm Omdia.

Galaxy A20 series is a low-end brand aimed at India and other emerging economies.
