Samsung has been working hard to flush out its popular Galaxy A line with the recent announcement of the Galaxy A72, A52 and A32. The trio can be offered both in a 4G vanilla variety, as well as a trendy and reasonably priced 5G variant. It seems that the Korean giant is now planning to introduce an even cheaper A device in the Galaxy A22. Again, in 4G and 5G version. The last time we heard of such a model was in December of last year, until a certain SM-A225F was recently spotted on the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) website.

Unfortunately, beyond the SM-A225F / DS moniker, indicating that the phone will support dual SIM, there is hardly any other information available on the A22 4G. That same model number SM-A225F was also spotted in an HTML5 test listing, which mentions that it will run Android 11 out of the box.
We don’t really know much about the SM-A226B, which is said to be the Galaxy A22 5G, either. Rumors have mentioned a quad camera setup with a 48MP main snapper, 8MP untrawide and two additional 2MP modules for depth and macros. A 13MP selfie is also likely and apparently the Galaxy A22 5G is expected to have two variants of RAM and storage and multiple colors including gray, white, light green, and purple.
The price of the 5G Galaxy A22 is expected to be around 229 euros, which naturally places it lower than the A32 5G. Therefore, we might expect it to rock something like the MediaTek Dimensity 700 or 720 chipset, or maybe Qualcomm’s budget Snapdragon 480 5G part.
