Now, the 4G variant of the Galaxy A14 has reportedly been spotted in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) database. A tipster has posted screenshots of the handset’s listing on the Bluetooth SIG platform, as well as the listing of the Samsung Galaxy A14 5G variant on India’s BIS certification website.
Reliable tipster Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) first Point both listings for the Galaxy A14 4G and 5G variants on Thursday. One of the screenshots he posted appears to show two models of the Galaxy A14 – SM-A145P_DS and SM-A145R_DSN – listed on the Bluetooth SIG website. These models correspond to the 4G variant of the Samsung handset, as indicated by the number “5” followed by the suffix “A14” in the model numbers.
The tipster also posted a screenshot of the Galaxy A14 5G variant with model number SM-A146B/DS receiving BIS certification, hinting that the phones may be coming soon.
