Samsung Galaxy A22 renders reveal what the company's cheapest 5G smartphone will look like
It has been almost a year since Samsung launched the Galaxy A21 and Galaxy A21s, two of the company's cheapest Galaxy A smartphones. Last year, it emerged that Samsung was planning to launch the Galaxy A22 5G in the second half of 2021, while a roadmap leaked in March stated that the device would arrive in July. Now, OnLeaks has published renders of said device, presumably based on leaked CAD files.
According to OnLeaks, the Galaxy A22 measures 167.2 x 75.4 x 8.7 mm, although its rear-facing camera module will protrude by an additional 1 mm. The Galaxy A22 has a 6.5-inch display like its predecessors. However, Samsung has gone with a waterdrop notch instead of the punch-hole it used in the A21 and A21s. Samsung will market the waterdrop notch as an Infinity-V display, for reference.
There are no details on the Galaxy A22's SoC, RAM or storage configurations, yet. In saying that, the renders show that the device also has a 3.5 mm headphone jack, three rear-facing cameras and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. Samsung has equipped the device with a downward-firing speaker, too.
