Samsung announced the Galaxy A21 smartphone in April last year and is expected to release the Galaxy A22 5G within the next few months. The device is expected to be promoted as Samsung’s most affordable 5G phone.
As for the price of the Galaxy A22 5G, it is expected to be around $ 185. The phone will compete with low-cost 5G models from Chinese brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo. The 5G version will be based on the SoC of the MediaTek Dimensity 700 series. However, a 4G version of the smartphone-based on the SoC of the MediaTek Helio family should also appear on sale. According to the source, the smartphone will receive the main camera with four sensors with a resolution of 48, 8, 2, and 2 megapixels. Samsung is expected to release a smartphone with 4/64 and 6/128 GB storage. A 3/32 GB version will be available in some countries.
Samsung uses ODMs to release some of its smartphones. This strategy was adopted to increase its share in emerging markets such as China and India. The ODM strategy has generated a backlash from parts suppliers who have previously worked with Samsung. Thus, the company has developed a JDM (Joint Development and Manufacturing) strategy in which Samsung is partly involved in the selection of the main characteristics of the product.
It is reported that Samsung will jointly develop and manufacture the Galaxy A22 5G with Chinese firms such as Wingtech and Hwachin. It will be marketed in emerging markets such as India and Southeast Asia.
