Is there room for one more mobile in Samsung’s prolific A series? Surely for the brand, the answer is “yes” and “it does not matter when you read this”, an example being today’s launch: the Samsung Galaxy A22 4G and 5G. A mobile with two versions with the price below 250 euros, for those who are looking for 4G and for those who prefer 5G.

Confirming the rumors, the A22 maintains the design lines that we have seen in some of its precedents, although assuming an update both at the level of components and prices. The effect that 5G has been democratized is that we already see prices like those of these mobiles, 100 euros below the Samsung Galaxy A42 5G at its start, which was Samsung’s cheapest 5G mobile.

The triumph of pastel colors in a family rear

As we said in the introduction, this mobile (or these mobiles) carries quite a lot of genetics from other Galaxy A’s, in fact the back is very reminiscent of the A42 5G that we mentioned with the back in brightness, practically with nothing beyond the logo and that camera module. square in the shape of a dice. All in that finish and proportions of said predecessor, transmitting simplicity and, at the same time, colorful (without falling into gradients), specifically white, lilac and pastel green.

The front transports us to the most standard mobiles or to the era of the birth of the notch, with a said notch to surround the front camera in the center of the upper frame. But one of the differences between the models, beyond connectivity, is the screen, since that frame with a chin surrounds a 6.6-inch TFT panel with FullHD + resolution in the case of the 5G and a 6.4-inch screen. with HD + resolution and refresh rate of 90 Hz in the case of the 4G model.

That is, the brand distributes benefits to each mobile, so instead of combining FullHD + and 90 Hz, we will have to stick with one or the other depending on which connectivity we choose. In both cases, we can see that, due to screen technology, the fingerprint reader is not included in the side panel.

4G or 5G, four or three cameras

As for the processor, for both phones MediaTek proposals are chosen: an Helio G80 with the 4G modem for one and the Density 700 with the 5G modem for the other. The RAM, in the case of the models that arrive in Spain, is the same for both models, 4 GB, with 64 and 128 GB storage options (up to 1 TB with microSD).

The battery is 5,000 mAh in both cases, with a fast charge of 15 watts, also having a headphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0. In addition, both models incorporate NFC.

The cameras are similar and in fact equivalent in at least three of the cases, since we see a quad camera in the 4G version and a triple camera in the 5G version. Specifically we will see:

  • Main camera with 48 megapixel sensor and lens with f / 1.8 aperture.
  • Camera with 8 megapixel sensor and wide-angle lens with f / 2.2 aperture for the 4G version, 5 megapixel sensor for the 5G version.
  • 2 megapixel sensor with f / 2.4 aperture lens for depth.
  • Macro with dev2 megapixel macro sensor (4G model).
  • Front camera with 13 megapixel sensor and lens with f / 2.2 aperture for the 4G model, with 8 megapixel sensor and lens with f / 2.0 aperture for the 5G model.
