Samsung cancels these popular smartphones for 2023
There is a small chance that the Samsung Galaxy A74 will appear next year. A source reports that there are no indications that Samsung is currently working on the A74. Usually, all kinds of details of new Samsung phones, such as specifications and firmware, appear a few months before.
However, nothing has been leaked about the Galaxy A74 at all. That is why it seems that the device is (for now) not on the schedule. On the other hand, many other Galaxy A phones due to appear next year – the Galaxy A54 and A34 – have already been leaked. These phones are expected in early 2023.

Several users are now reporting that they see the option when using the system in the car. If you open a specific contact’s information, you can now also call that person via WhatsApp. Logically, it is not possible to make video calls when you are in the car.
