The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G has again come to light from the Internet rumor mill and aims to be the smart phone with support for the latest generation of mobile networks more economical from the South Korean manufacturer.
Samsung has well covered the high-end of smartphones with the Galaxy S21, the Note phablet and the foldables for which we expect new versions at an Unpacked event to be held in August. But it has long been paying particular attention to the mid and entry ranges with the ‘A’ and ‘M’ series to overcome pressure from Chinese manufacturers.
The terminal will stand out for being Samsung’s cheapest 5G with a price that is expected below the $ 200 barrier. The terminal replaces the typical high-end AMOLED screen with an LCD panel, the metal and glass chassis with polycarbonate and the large Qualcomm SoCs by MediaTek to reduce costs and offer a really attractive model.
