Samsung has just announced its latest 5G smartphone. The new Galaxy A22 5G replaces A32 5G as the cheapest 5G offering from the company. Here, we will be looking at the key specifications and features of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G, along with its expected price in Nepal.

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G Overview:

Design and Display

Galaxy A22 5G is quite big in size. For context, it measures 9.0mm in thickness and weighs 203 grams. Here, Samsung has gone with a 6.6-inch FHD+ TFT panel with an Infinity-V notch. The higher resolution screen is a welcome change compared to most budget 5G Galaxy devices. It even supports a 90Hz refresh rate.

The edges of the phones are rounded for a comfortable grip. At the back, there is a left-aligned square camera bump. Overall, this design is more in line with the M62 instead of other A-series devices like the A32 5G. The phone is available in four colors – Grey, Mint, White, and Violet.

Performance and Memory

Under the hood, Galaxy A22 5G packs MediaTek Dimensity 700. It is an 8nm chipset with two Cortex-A76 performance and six Cortex-A55 efficiency cores. The chipset has a dedicated 5G modem with support for dual 5G SIM.

The base variant comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. Users can also go with 6GB and 8GB RAM variants that arrive with 128GB storage. The memory configuration will vary according to the market. The phone ships with the core version of One UI 3.1 based on Android 11.

Rest of the specs

Galaxy A22 5G flaunts a triple camera setup on the back. The primary camera has a 48MP image sensor. Accompanying it is a 5MP ultra-wide lens, which is rather underwhelming for a mid-range phone in 2021. Similarly, there is a 2MP sensor with a bokeh lens. Moving to the front, the phone has an 8MP selfie camera.

Fueling the device is a 5,000mAh battery that supports 15W fast charging. The phone supports Dolby Atmos audio, and it features a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
