If the specs appear familiar, you are thinking in the right direction. This is the same chip that is seen on the recently launched Redmi Note 10T 5G, the Realme Narzo 30 5G, and the Poco M3 Pro 5G. And these are the phone’s rivals too.
The phone will be home to triple rear cameras arranged in a square camera bump. There will be a 48-megapixel main camera, a 5-megapixel ultra-wide lens, and a 2-megapixel depth camera. The front camera stands at 8-megapixel.
There will be a 5,000mAh battery with 15w fast charging support. You can also expect up to 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The phone will also house a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The price remains behind the veil but we have some rumours to get a fair idea. It is suggested that the Galaxy A22 5G will start at Rs 19,999 and go up to Rs 21,999. With this, it will become the most affordable 5G phone by Samsung.
