Cheap Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is coming next yearDecember 22, 2020
Samsung is working on diversifying its portfolio of entry-level 5G smartphones. The A32 5G will definitely help with that, but apparently next year we’ll see an even lower-end 5G model – the Galaxy A22 5G.
According to a rumor originating in Samsung’s home country, this device will sell in South Korea for around KRW 200,000, which right now means approximately $181 or €147 or INR 13,380. The purpose of this phone is for Samsung to have a very cheap 5G handset to compete with the Realmes and Redmis that are on the way.
The A22 5G is expected to be a star, sales-wise, in India and Southeast Asia. It will be launched in the second half of 2021, as the successor to the Galaxy A21. The A32 5G, on the other hand, should see the light of day in the first half of the year.
No specs have been outed for the Galaxy A22 5G, but to hit that price point we’re assuming it might choose a MediaTek Dimensity 700 series chipset, or a new, yet-unannounced entry level offering from Qualcomm’s 6-series.
