Samsung has introduced a new 5G capable Galaxy A-series smartphone named Galaxy A22 5G. It has been made official in Europe but there is also a 4G LTE variant.

The phone has a basic configuration of 4GB RAM with 64GB storage but there are also the following options: 4GB, 6GB, and 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage space. All of these variants support microSD cards for storage expansion.
The phone features a 48-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor for f/2.2 aperture, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor with f/2.4 aperture. The front camera on the phone is an 8-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture and housed within the notch.
The whole package is powered by a 5,000mAh battery with support for 15W fast charging. There is a side-mounted fingerprint scanner available on the smartphone. The Galaxy A22 5G has been priced at EUR 230 for the base model and if you are interested in the 4GB/128GB option, it will cost you EUR 250. It will go on sale in July with an option to choose from Gray, White, Mint, and Violet color options.
