Samsung does not like to talk about chipsets, but it is quite clear that this model is powered by the Dimensity 700. It starts with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage, which makes it possible to reach that price target of € 230. a model with 128 GB of storage, which you can have 4, 6 or 8 GB of RAM. The 4/128 GB setting starts at € 250.

€ 20 for extra 64GB sounds reasonable, but the A22 5G has a microSD slot (as opposed to the A22 4G), so it’s okay to get the smaller option. The 5G model also gets the better screen (unlike the A32 pair).

Well, better if you do not insist on an AMOLED panel. What you get is a 6.6 ”LCD with 1080p + resolution and 90Hz refresh rate. However, the 5G model is not doing so well in the camera department.

The triple cam on the back is home to a 48 MP main module (no OIS) and a 5 MP ultra wide angle module (plus a depth sensor). The 8 MP selfie camera is in a V-shaped notch on the front.

Samsung Galaxy A22

The Samsung Galaxy A22 is quite different from its siblings, in fact the name suggests a greater familiar connection than exists in reality. To begin with, this is powered by the older Helio G80 chipset. The basic memory configuration is 4/64 GB with a 128 GB option available, but this time the RAM selection is limited to 4 and 6 GB. And remember that there is no microSD slot on this one.

The screen is also different, very different. It is a 6.4 ”Super AMOLED panel with 720p + resolution. The one spec shared between the two is the refresh rate of 90 Hz. Even notches have a different shape. And it also houses another camera, a 13 MP device.

The rear cam has a 48 MP sensor in the main module, this time with OIS. And the ultra-wide-angle camera is upgraded to an 8 MP sensor. There is also a 2 MP macro camera that holds the depth sensor firm.

With different screens also come different dimensions. The A22 4G measures 159.3 x 73.6 x 8.4 mm and weighs 186 g, the A22 5G is larger, thicker and heavier at 167.2 x 76.4 x 9.0 mm and 203 g.
