The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G appears to be Samsung's cheapest 5G phone to date, and one of the cheapest 5G phones you can get at any deal, which makes it an exciting prospect.

While nothing has been confirmed on the phone so far, we've now heard various rumors about it and seen quite a few unofficial renderings so we have a good idea of ​​what to expect.

The leaks point to a phone that is not only cheap and has 5G, but is also equipped with a quad-lens camera, 6GB of RAM, and more. Below are all the details we've heard so far, including likely pricing, release date, and specs.

Come to the point

  • What is it? Samsung's cheapest 5G phone so far
  • When did it come out? Maybe june or july
  • How much will it cost? Maybe 200,000 won (about € 180, € 135, AU € 240)

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G launch date and price

The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G will probably land in July, as a Samsung product roadmap leaked by Evan Blass (a leaker with a great track record) listed it for now. That said, the roadmap also lists "PC Unpacked" for April 14, and it's an event that's actually scheduled for April 28, so that's certainly not entirely true.

Otherwise, in July, it could be released even earlier, as The Elec (a South Korean site) claims that the Galaxy A22 5G will be announced in June.

Price-wise, it's rumored to be 200,000 South Korean won (about € 180, € 135, AU € 240), making it Samsung's cheapest 5G phone and one of the cheapest 5G phones of any. deal.

While it's worth remembering that while this price is correct in South Korea, it won't be an exact conversion in other regions.

Design and display

Our first look at probable design of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G comes from unofficial renderings shared by leaker @OnLeaks.

You can see some of them below, and they show a phone with a teardrop notch on the front, a square camera block on the back, a fairly large bezel under the flat panel, a 3,5 port. mm at the bottom edge and a fingerprint. . scanner on the right edge.

The dimensions are apparently 167,2 x 76,4 x 8,7mm (or 9,7mm with the rear camera bulge).

The source adds that the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G apparently has a 6.5-inch screen, and these more or less coincide with the versions of the cases that we have seen previously.

The only real differences are the location of the 3,5mm headphone port, which appears to be on the top edge of the case rendering (below), and the appearance of the camera lenses, which we'll get to later.

Samsung Galaxy A22 is made by third-party case manufacturers.

Since then, the 91mobiles team has jumped into leaked action, releasing their own versions of the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A22 5G. Luckily for the rumor mill's cred, they're pretty close to the first batch of renderings, so it looks like this will be the official design.

Camera

A slightly blurry aspect of the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is its camera, as the unofficial renderings above show a triple lens with an LED flash, while the case render shows a quad lens. However, there are no signs of a flash on the latter, suggesting that they are wrong and that one of the things they showed as a lens is actually a flash.

So does the Galaxy A22 5G have a triple lens camera? Well, not necessarily. The Elec claims that the phone will have a quad-lens snapper with a 48MP primary, an 8MP (probably ultra-wide), and a 2MP snapper pair, likely completing macro and depth tasks. The site also claims that the A22 5G has a 13 MP selfie camera, and that these specs are, by the way, the same as the Samsung Galaxy A21.

A more recent 91mobile leak provides some clarity: Its sources say the Samsung A22 5G will have a 48MP + 5MP + 2MP triple-lens rear camera, but the 4G LTE version of the same phone will go for a 48MP + quad lens. 5MP + 2MP + 2MP snapper on the back.

Power and battery

A benchmark for a phone rumored to be the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G reveals a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset and 6GB of RAM, plus Android 11 and 5G, of course. These are pretty low specs, but they match the Galaxy A22 5G's supposed price.

Rumor has it there will be a 4G version of the phone, ditching 5G and improving other areas - this phone would work under the hood of a MediaTek Helio G80 processor, for example.

The Samsung Galaxy A21s comes with a 5.000 mAh capacity battery, and sources say the 4G LTE and 5G versions of the Galaxy A22 will match that, with a relatively low 15W wired charging.
