Affordable Samsung Galaxy A14 has huge 5,000mAh battery and low RM799 price tag
The top of the line Samsung Galaxy S23 series remain the ultimate representation of smartphone tech wrought in glass and steel but there’s still a need for affordable workhorses which is what the Galaxy A14 is all about. This new workhorse addition to their midrange Galaxy A series costs RM799 and will arrive in Malaysia on 15 March 2023.
In terms of hardware, the Samsung Galaxy A14 has a modest 6.6-inch FHD+ (1080 x 2408 pixels) LCD display with a 60Hz refresh rate and a V-shaped cutout up top for the front-facing 13MP F/2.0 selfie camera.
Powering the phone is an Exynos 850 2.0GHz octa core processor with 6GB RAM and 128GB of storage while a microSD card slot allows you to bung in a card up to 1TB in size to radically expand available storage space. This is also on top of a dual SIM card slot too which makes the phone exceptionally versatile though connectivity is relegated to 4G LTE. Belying its midrange status, the phone has a guaranteed 4 years worth of firmware updates and 5 years worth of security updates which means it’ll still remain up to date all the way to 2027.
On the rear of the phone, you get a triple camera array built around a primary 50MP F/1.8 camera, a secondary 5MP F/2.2 ultra wide angle camera and a 2MP F/2.4 macro camera. Keeping it powered is a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast wired charging. Unfortunately the phone lacks a charger so you’ll have to acquire your own.
How much is the Samsung Galaxy A14 in Malaysia
In Malaysia, the Galaxy A14 can be acquired in your choice of black, dark red or silver at the aforementioned RM799 at all Samsung Experience stores, authorised retailers and the Samsung Online store from 15 March 2023 onwards.
From now until 31st December 2023, Samsung is throwing in a free additional year of extended warranty when purchasing the Galaxy A14 for additional peace of mind on top of its guaranteed 4 years worth of firmware updates.
