Samsung launches its cheapest 5G phone of 2021 so far, the Galaxy A22
Samsung has finally made its successors to the Galaxy A21 series official. They consist of variants with both 5G and 4G/LTE-only connectivity, with similar rear panel styles that include square camera humps. Then again, the 2 new flavors of Galaxy A22 also differ in several potentially important ways.
The 5G version has a 6.6-inch HD+ display, whereas the A22 4G/LTE has one of 6.4 inches and of the same resolution. Then again, the former is TFT and 60Hz, whereas the latter is 90Hz Super AMOLED. In addition, the 'flagship' has been debuted with just 1 4GB/128GB configuration, whereas its non-5G counterpart is now listed with an additional 64GB storage SKU, as well as one with 6GB of RAM.
Samsung has done its usual thing of not specifying its new phones' SoCs by name, although the specs mentioned with respect to the A22 4G/LTE and 5G indicate the MediaTek Helio G80 and Dimensity 700 respectively.
Finally, the Galaxy A22 5G is being offered in Gray, White, Violet and Mint, whereas the 4G/LTE variant has nearly identical Black, White, Violet and Mint colorways. The latter lacks pricing information at the time of writing.
