Samsung is gearing up for 2023. The growing range of Galaxy S23 intelligence leads to a major design overhaul that brings the S23 and S23+ alongside the iconic models of the Ultra dynasty. These might not be the only two phones in the company's range to see such changes: if other leaks are correct, we might see a similar design for the mid-range Galaxy A34.
New CAD renders of the Galaxy A34 have been released by Giznext courtesy of OnLeaks, and they show Samsung's upcoming budget phone from different angles.
The untrained eye may not be able to tell the difference between an A34 and an S23 if you don't know what to look for. At first glance, we notice that this device resembles the Galaxy S23 smartphones in many ways, with some minor differences, such as the backlight, which has been reduced.
That's not to say the two phones are identical - if you scroll up you'll see a teardrop instead of the punch hole we usually see on flagship and mid-range phones.
This isn't the first time we've seen this design as the Galaxy A13. But that might be a common thing for the A-series. Finally, we have a headphone jack, a hardware feature that the Galaxy A33 lacked this year. We can also notice the USB-C port, as well as the SIM card slot, which is now at the top.
Overall, these specs make the Galaxy A34 a solid budget phone, although we'll have to see the specs once it hits the market. This should happen in the first half of 2023, possibly after the announcement of the Galaxy S23 series. If you're looking for a budget phone, this might be worth the wait - it has the potential to be one of the best budget phones out there.
