Samsung is preparing a Galaxy A14 smartphone with 5G connectivity. The device with model number SM-A146B appeared on Geekbench with an unannounced Exynos chipset, but a new listing revealed the model is also getting a different version with a Mediatek platform.
An SM-A146P phone was benchmarked with Dimensity 700, and it managed to score lower than the Exynos sibling both on the single-core and multi-core fronts.
Geekbench tells us the Mediatek-powered Samsung phone will have a 4GB RAM option and will ship with Android 13 out of the box. The unimpressive results of 522 for a single core and 1,710 for multiple cores could be partially down to non-finalized software, but they still suggest we are looking at a more affordable version for certain markets.
Leaked renders suggest the Galaxy A14 will have a triple camera on the back, a single selfie shooter behind a waterdrop notch, and a 5,000 mAh battery. We can only assume it will be the same for both versions, with the chipset and the price being the only differences.
