Galaxy A74’s cancellation could be one of Samsung’s best decisions in 2023

And before 2022, the Galaxy A5x and Galaxy A7x smartphones had some meaningful differences. The latter came with bigger screens, bigger batteries, better cameras, and faster processors. Basically, the existence of devices like the Galaxy A70 and Galaxy A71 had a purpose.

The iPhone 15 lineup, for example, is expected to arrive in September — possibly with USB-C charging for the first time. If Samsung maintains its typical release cycle, the Galaxy S23 will be one of the first new phones we see in 2023.

Samsung Galaxy A23 5G Review: Annoyingly Laggy

It’s not a good sign when you’ve thought about throwing your smartphone out the window. Not because of—well, *gestures at everything* but because it’s just so frustrating to use.
