Weighing 202 grams, it has a triple camera setup on the back and a water drop notched display on the front. While other companies are trying to reduce the size of the bezels in their smartphones of the same price range, the bezels in A14 5G are quite thick in comparison to other Samsung phones of the same price range. The phone has a thickness of 9.1 mm, which is quite good for the price range.
The camera in Samsung Galaxy A14 5G includes a standard 50MP main camera, 2MP macro and 2MP depth camera. The aperture of the main camera is F1.8; the macro camera is F2.4 and the depth is also F2.4.

Performance and battery
Samsung Galaxy A14 5G includes the latest chip from Samsung, which is the new octa-core Exynos 1330 chip. There is less information on the details about the chip, yet it is better than the chip used in Samsung Galaxy A13 from last year. The GPU used is Mali-G68 MC4 and is based on One UI and OS Android 13. It will get about four years of security updates.
The RAM currently available in Nepal in A14 5G is 6GB and a storage of 128GB with an extra SD card slot, which supports up to 1TB of storage.
There are other RAM and storage variants available in India, which might be available in Nepal as the 4G variant. The 4G variant will probably have 4 GB RAM and 64GB storage.
A14 5G gets power from a non-removable 5000mAh battery, which has a video playback time of up to 21 hours and an audio playback time of up to 128 hours.
