New rumours speculates that Samsung could release a smartphone which could be its least expensive 5G phone at the moment. This new device will be called the Galaxy A22 5G and its expected to be more affordable than the $279 Galaxy A32 5G phone, the cheapest 5G phone from Samsung so far.
On 14 May 2021, 91mobiles revealed leaked images of what the phone design will look like. These renders correlate with previous rumours that predicted the phone will come with a 200,000 KRW (approximately $180/£125) price tag. However, we believe that this upcoming device might be produced mainly for India and some parts of Asia in the nearest future.
According to the leaked render, the smartphone will come in both 5G and 4G versions. These versions have slightly different sets of specifications. The 5G model will be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 700 chipset. For its display, it sports a 6.4-inch LCD and has a triple-camera Setup at the rear. The Galaxy A22 will most likely a 48-megapixel main / macro / depth sensor combination for its rear camera setup.

According to previous Geekbench leak, the Galaxy A22 will pack a 6GB RAM. Both the 4G and 5G models of this device will feature a 5,000mAh battery. However, both models will have some distinctive features. The 4G model is expected to have one additional rear camera and an OLED display rather than LCD display.
The Realme 8 5G which goes for €199 (approximately $240) and the OnePlus Nord N10 5G which goes for $300 are some of the few budget phones between the $200 and $300 mark offering 5G. But based on how things turn out, the Galaxy A22 5G will become the first 5G phone to cost below $200.
Though the US is still contemplating on the issue of accepting 5G, wireless carriers are racing to improve their networks. They may be eager to stock their shelves with more aggressively priced 5G devices like the A22 5G soon.
