Samsung introduced the Galaxy A22 4G and 5G last June and launched the Galaxy A22s 5G in November, which is simply a rebadged A22 5G. Now the first information about the new device of the line called Galaxy A22e 5G has appeared.
The Samsung Galaxy A22e 5G has passed Bluetooth SIG certification, indicating an imminent release. The certification body did not disclose the specifications of the A22e 5G, but said that the smartphone has a model number of SC-56B – the same as the Galaxy A22 5G, released in Japan last year. This means that the A22e 5G may share specs with the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G.
It should be noted that the specifications of the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G and the model announced in June last year are different. First, the Japanese model has a smaller (5.8-inch) lower resolution (HD+) LCD screen with a 60Hz refresh rate, a smaller battery (4000 mAh) and two cameras instead of four with image sensors. It has a 13-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel front camera.
The Japanese Galaxy A22 5G is 8.9mm thick, weighs 168 grams, and is IP68 rated. He also received an NFC module, but does not have a side fingerprint scanner. The smartphone runs on Android 11 and is equipped with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. Also available for microSD memory cards up to 1 TB.
Samsung claims that the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G is equipped with an octa-core processor with a maximum clock speed of 2.2GHz. Presumably this is Dimensity 700.
