The budget-friendly Galaxy A13 4G is finally joining the Android 14 party, three weeks after its 5G sibling. The rollout appears to have begun in Korea, with wider availability expected in the coming weeks.
Android 14 Update for Galaxy A13 4G
Samsung’s Galaxy A13 4G is now eligible for the Android 14 update. While Samsung’s current flagship line like the Galaxy S24 enjoys up to seven years of updates, the A13 is only eligible for two major OS upgrades, making Android 14 its last. However, it may still receive the One UI 6.1 update before feature updates cease.
Rollout in Korea and Wider Availability
Korean users can find the update as firmware version A135NKSU5DWL5 through their phone’s Settings > Software update menu. Users in other regions should keep an eye out for the update notification soon.
Improvements with the Update
The Android 14 update brings several improvements to the Galaxy A13 4G. The Quick Panel is now easier to use, providing quick access to your most-used settings. The emoji library has been updated, making your messages more fun and expressive. Additionally, there is a new, clearer default font. The media player widget has a cool new look with dynamic waveforms, and the lock screen clock widget’s size, style, and placement can now be customized.
Enhancements to Samsung Apps
Samsung’s apps like Gallery, Internet, Messages, Phone, and Reminders have a new, cleaner look. Some apps have even dropped the “Samsung” name for a simpler style. The photo editor is more user-friendly, making it easier to edit your pictures. Moreover, there’s a new video editor called “Studio” for all your video editing needs.
Specifications of Galaxy A13 4G
As a reminder, the Galaxy A13 4G features a 6.6-inch Full HD+ display, an 8MP front camera, a quad-camera rear setup with a 50MP main sensor, an Exynos 850 processor, 4GB or 6GB of RAM, 64GB or 128GB of storage, and a 5,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging support (though the included charger is only 15W).
With the Android 14 update, the Galaxy A13 4G is set to provide an improved user experience with its new features and enhancements. Stay tuned for the wider availability of the update in the coming weeks.
