The biggest draw of the Galaxy F22 will be its 6,000mAh battery. In contrast, both the Galaxy A22 4G and 5G models feature a 5,000mAh power source.
Elsewhere, the Galaxy F22 will feature a 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. An image of the device shows it’ll have a U-shaped notch in the center.
The camera system will house a 48MP primary sensor. There are three other cameras at the back in a square housing along with a flash underneath. We don’t know the configuration of the other sensors, but if they’re the same as those on the Galaxy A22 4G, you can expect an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, a 2MP depth sensor, and a 2MP macro shooter.
As for pricing, the Samsung Galaxy F22 is expected to launch under Rs 15,000 (~$201). At that price, it’ll compete with offerings from Redmi and Realme in India.
