It comprises of a 48 MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) accompanied by an 8 MP wide lens, a 2MP macro, and a 2MP depth sensor.
The phone is powered by an octa-core processor. Samsung hasn't given any details regarding the chip, but based on a recent leak, it is likely to be MediaTek's Helio G80. The phone's 4 GB RAM variant will be available in 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage variants. There's also a 6 GB RAM model paired with 128 GB internal storage. You can expand the storage further via a microSD card slot.
The Galaxy A22 comes with dual-band Wi-Fi, 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, NFC, headphone jack, and USB Type-C port. It houses a 5,000 mAh battery, which supports 15W fast charging. The handset will be available in violet, mint, white, and black.
The Galaxy A22 5G, obvious from its name, brings 5G connectivity to the budget category. It is most likely based on MediaTek's Dimensity 700 chipset. The device will be available in 4 GB, 6 GB, and 8 GB RAM variants. The 4 GB RAM model lets you choose between 64 GB and 128 GB internal storage. The rest are only available with 128 GB internal storage.
The Galaxy A22 5G has a 6.6-inch Full HD+ LCD screen with a notch at the top. On the photography front, it is equipped with a 48 MP main camera, a 5 MP wide lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, you get an 8 MP snapper. The phone packs in a 5,000 mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging. Samsung will let you choose from violet, mint, white, and gray hues.
