Samsung formally reveals Galaxy A22 and Galaxy A22 4G (Updated: India launch)
- Samsung has now launched the Galaxy A22 in India.
- The 4G version of the phone is priced at Rs 18,499.
- Samsung in June confirmed its plans to roll out the 5G variant to the UK and the EU from July.
Update: July 2, 2021 (6:40 AM ET): Samsung has officially launched the Galaxy A22 in India priced at Rs 18,499 (~$248). The 4G variant is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80, packs 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 48MP rear camera. It also features a 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED display.
In June, Samsung announced UK pricing and EU pricing for the 5G model. In the United Kingdom, the Galaxy A22 will cost £199 (~$281) and in the EU it will cost €249 (~$302). This pricing lines up with the revealed specs.
Samsung confirmed last month that the Galaxy A22 will land in the EU in “early July.” However, the company didn’t have a specific release date for the UK, other than “early this summer.”
In May, we saw our first set of leaked renders for the budget-oriented Galaxy A22. Later, we saw some leaked specs, but they weren’t complete (and, obviously, just rumors).
Samsung must have decided it would rather us have the correct details because it just shared them with the world. Below, you’ll find an official infographic detailing pretty much everything you could want to know about the design and specs of the Samsung Galaxy A22.

This is not a very “Samsung” move. Usually, the company drops all the info on a new product at once. Here, though, it’s given us most of the integral info on the product itself while leaving out important bits such as when and where we’ll be able to buy it and how much it would cost. Apparently, we’ll need to wait a while longer before we get that info.
Check out the infographic below for what we know so far.
Samsung Galaxy A22 specs infographic
The specs sheet here paints a clear picture of a budget-oriented smartphone. It has a huge battery (5,000mAh) and a decent triple-lens rear camera, but a pretty weak selection of storage/RAM options. Its bottom bezel is enormous, but the display is pretty big, and it comes with a 90Hz refresh rate (even though the infographic doesn’t say so, but Samsung confirms it here). It also supports 5G connections, but Samsung doesn’t reveal what processor is powering them. Rumors suggest it’s a MediaTek Dimensity 700, but the graphic doesn’t confirm that.
There are rumors there could be a 4G-only version of the phone landing soon with some slightly different specs. It’s possible Samsung could give us all the details on that when it gives us the missing info for the 5G model of the Galaxy A22.
Stay tuned, as the existence of this graphic all but assures we should see a formal launch of this product soon.
