The Samsung Galaxy M13 (SM-M135F) can maintain the same charging speeds as its predecessor, according to a new report. The next budget device has already leaked several times, thanks to certification sites like the FCC. This new reveal effectively confirms that the Galaxy M13 will only charge up to 15W, which is the same as its predecessor.
It’s unclear if Samsung will ship a charging adapter with the Galaxy M13
According to FCC and TUV Rheinland, Galaxy M13 has been tested with 15W charger EP-TA200. But as SamMobile notes (via MySmartPrice), it’s currently unknown whether the manufacturer will bundle this charging adapter with the device. But we now know that the device will stick to 15W charging.
A previous Bluetooth SIG certification confirmed that the Galaxy M13 will support Bluetooth 5.0. Based on the device’s rear panel leaks, we also know that the smartphone is said to sport a 50-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel depth sensor. Meanwhile, rumors further claim that the Galaxy M13 will pack a 6.5-inch IPS LCD display accompanied by the Infinity-V notch, which houses the front camera.
Customers can also expect features like expandable storage, a 5,000mAh battery, and Android 12 running by default. Although there is no specific information about the processor of the smartphone, Samsung will probably offer a competitive SoC below.
Last year’s Galaxy M12 featured the 8nm Exynos 850 chipset, which is relatively decent for a mid-range/low-end smartphone. So while the Galaxy M13’s processor may not show high benchmark scores, it will undoubtedly be an upgrade over the predecessor.
The smartphone will inevitably be available in several regions, including parts of Europe and Asia. While 5G connectivity is rumored, Samsung has yet to confirm that aspect, so we’re taking it with a grain of salt for now.
Expect the Galaxy M13 to launch in June, with a similar price to the predecessor
Although there is no launch date for the Galaxy M13 yet, rumors point to a mid-June release. Keeping that in mind, we are likely to come across additional Galaxy M13 information in the days and weeks to come.
Given that the Galaxy M12 was aimed at the sub-$200 price segment, we expect the successor to follow a similar path. Based on the information we’ve gotten so far, the Galaxy M13 is likely to be an incremental upgrade over the Galaxy M12, especially in terms of hardware.
