Samsung Galaxy A22 4G product description

The Samsung Galaxy A22 4G can be confused with the 4G version of the Galaxy A22 5G, but nothing could be further from the truth. There are so many differences that they are hardly family. We will look into what this A22 4G is and whether or not it is worth it

4G version is not necessarily cheaper

The Samsung Galaxy A22 4G is a smartphone with 6.4-inch large 90Hz screen, quadruple camera and 5000 mAh large battery with 15W fast charging. What it is also is a phone that has not been officially released everywhere. As a result, the price tends to be a bit higher than, say, the A22 5G that was rolled out more widely. And then we come back to the Galaxy A22 5G. It has a larger 6.6-inch screen and a slightly more powerful processor with 5G support. It lacks the 2MP macro camera on the back, but it turns out to be practically useless in practise. The selfie camera is also of a slightly lower resolution (8 instead of 13) but that is made up for with a much more light-sensitive lens (f/2.0 instead of f/2.2). So why do we mention the A22 5G again? Because it costs just as much or is even cheaper. So keep that in mind.

Quad camera with big plus

From now on, we promise not to talk about the A22 5G and focus exclusively on this A22 4G. Starting with the back. There we find a 48MP main camera, an 8MP camera with 123° ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP depth camera and a 2MP macro camera. Samsung promises razor-sharp close-ups with the latter, but practise has shown that it rarely works. The star of the show is the 48MP main camera. It is equipped with optical image stabilisation (OIS). This is rare in this price category. In fact, it is so unusual that we double chequed. Your photos are more often sharp, even in the dark. Colours and contrast are also fine. The 13MP selfie camera sits in a notch but thanks to the U-shape, it looks more modern than an old-fashioned V-notch

Main Samsung Galaxy A22 4G Specifications

  • 2GHz octa-core processor with generous 6GB of RAM memory
  • 128GB storage memory, expandable via microSD card up to 1TB

Back on the road quickly

So Samsung has equipped the Galaxy A22 5G with a smooth 90Hz screen, a sharp 48MP shooter but what about the battery? That should get you thru the day at least. It has a 5000 mAh capacity and features 15W Adaptive Fast Charging to get you back on the road quickly. On the road you can't use 5G but you can use 4G. Still fast but a little less future-proof. It just depends on what you prefer.

Rumours ·

Images have surfaced of the Galaxy A22 in both a 4G and 5G variant. Both models differ even more in terms of specifications. For instance, the 4G version gets a quadruple camera while the 5G version has one camera less.

The front of the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G and the Galaxy A22 5G look identical to each other: a 6.4-inch large screen with a V-shaped notch at the top. That in itself is worth mentioning; the A21s had a slightly more modern punch hole in the corner. Also the recently introduced M12 got rid of the punch hole and reintroduced the somewhat ancient notch.

Apart from the similar screen size, the similarities between the A22 4G and A22 5G end. The 4G version has HD+ resolution on an AMOLED panel while the A22 5G has a sharper FHD+ resolution on an LCD panel. As it stands, both screens run at a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz. Smoother animations of 90Hz or higher will therefore remain exclusive to more expensive Galaxy models. For now that is.

Difference in cameras

We also find differences on the back. The 4G version of the Galaxy A22 gets a quadruple camera (48+5+2+2MP) with one 2MP camera less for the 5G version. It's possible that this was done to keep the cost of both models the same, though that remains to be seen for now. On the front, we find a 13MP selfie camera in both phones.

Galaxy A22 in stores

The Galaxy A22 4G is expected to be powered by a Helio G80 chipset from MediaTek. The Galaxy A22 5G is expected to have a MediaTek Dimensity 700 under the bonnet. Both versions will get a large 5000mAh battery with 15W fast charging. Now Samsung just needs to announce both of them. That will happen in white, black, purple and green. We will have to wait and see when and for how much we can buy the A22.
