The rumor mill is gradually spreading information about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy A22 smartphone. It is rumored to be available as the cheapest Samsung phone with 5G support. The handset is now featured on the Geekbench benchmarking platform (via) to confirm some of the key details.
The Galaxy A22 5G appeared on the benchmark website with the model number SM-A226GB. The device achieved 562 points in the single-core test and 1765 points in the multi-core test. It is powered by a MediaTek chip named by the model number MT6833 / NZA.
This chip is the Dimensity 700 5G, which can control Realme 8 5G, Realme V13 5G, Realme Q3i 5G, Vivo Y72 5G, Redmi Note 10 5G, etc. When you go back to the Geekbench list, the phone will boot to Android 11 OS. The SoC is paired with 6 GB of RAM.
The popular tipster Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the CAD renderings of the Galaxy A22 5G yesterday. The renders showed that it has a waterdrop display on the front and a square camera body on the back. The phone’s power button is built into a fingerprint scanner.

Other reports suggest the smartphone will come with a four-camera configuration. It consists of a 48-megapixel primary shooter, an 8-megapixel ultrawide snapper, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth-sensing module. There is an Infinity-V display on the front which we assume is HD + resolution and is an LCD. Inside the drop-shaped notch is a 13-megapixel selfie snapper.
The smartphone is expected to come with a 6.5-inch LCD screen and a 13-megapixel front-facing camera. The camera on the back of the phone can be controlled by a 48-megapixel camera. The device is expected to be available in June for a price of around 229 euros and may be available in gray, white, light green, and purple. The South Korean company is expected to release a 4G version of the phone in some markets such as India.
It’s curious to see a device hitting the market in two months’ time-making headlines so often. However, this is a big surprise if you are used to Samsung booting. Remember, the Galaxy A52 and A72 leaked in January, but didn’t hit the market until March. Samsung is clearly not good at keeping secrets.
