If you’re looking for an affordable Samsung branded 5G-enabled smartphone, then you may want to consider the Galaxy A22. The handset is available now in Malaysia at a sub-RM1,000 price tag which is considerably cheaper than the brand’s other 5G-enabled entry level smartphone, the Galaxy A32 5G. Well, the term “sub-RM1,000” is kind of pushing it, as the Galaxy A22 is actually priced at RM999.
The newly arrived phone features a 6.6-inch Full HD+ TFT display, with a waterdrop notch that houses an 8MP front-facing camera. Under its hood is a MediaTek Dimensity 700 5G chipset, paired together with 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage, which is expandable up to 1TB via MicroSD. Powering the phone is a large 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support via USB-C.
On the back of the Galaxy A22 5G is a triple camera setup which consists of a 48MP main, 5MP ultra wide-angle, and a 2MP depth sensor. It is also capable of shooting videos up to 2K resolution at 30 fps, and also features a Slow Motion mode which records HD footage at 120fps.
Other features include dual-sim support, Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, GPS navigation, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Out of the box, the Galaxy A22 5G comes with Android 11 via the latest Samsung’s One UI system.
