The South Korean giant is working on a new low-mid-range budget smartphone, the Galaxy A22 5G, a terminal that will be equipped with a very interesting configuration at the hardware level, and that it will be priced at less than $ 200.
According to the latest information that come to us from South Korean media, the Galaxy A22 5G will be equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 series SoC or with a MediaTek Dimensity 700 series. In both cases, we can expect an octa-core CPU and a modest GPU, but capable of moving 3D applications and games smoothly.
If the price and specifications of this terminal are confirmed, it could become one of the best options within its range. The Galaxy A22 5G will be presented sometime in the second half of 2021, and it seems that for the moment its launch will be limited to emerging markets in Asia, among which is India, one of the most important countries for the smartphone market.
With these terminals, Samsung is reinforcing its catalog within the busiest and most competitive ranges of the smartphone sector, where a fierce fight is being fought right now due to the large number of manufacturers that offer products with a very solid value for money.
What else can we expect from the Galaxy A22 5G?
Broadly speaking, the Galaxy A22 5G should keep the design of the Galaxy A21, although it is likely that Samsung will introduce small changes for a more polished look, attractive and interesting. The chassis will be made of polycarbonate (plastic), an inexpensive but reliable and very resistant material, and its screen should maintain a size of approximately 6.5 inches.
As for the rest of its specs, I think we can wait HD + resolution, four rear cameras, 13 MP front camera on a floating island, fingerprint reader on the rear, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage capacity, although a lower version with 3 GB and 32 GB is not ruled out.
The sale price of the Galaxy A22 5G could be around $ 181, a figure that, at the current exchange rate, would be equivalent to 147 euros. Keep in mind that we are talking about exchange prices without taxes, and that the official figures in Spain would be very different (it could be in the 199 euros).
Before the Galaxy A22 5G will come the Galaxy A32 5G, a superior model that will fit directly into the economic mid-range, and that will also have a Snapdragon 700 series SoC or a MediaTek Dimensity 800. Its price to change, after applying taxes, should be in the range of 249-299 euros, approximately.
