The two new Samsung smartphones Galaxy A22 and Galaxy A22 5G are coming to Germany for around 200 euros. Despite the low price, the smartphones offer displays with a smooth refresh rate of 90 Hertz. Several cameras and large batteries are also among the highlights.

The new Samsung phones Galaxy A22 and A22 5G differ not only in the 5G modem. Despite the similar name, they are fundamentally different entry-level phones. The Galaxy A22 uses a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hertz. The latter is rarely seen on cheap smartphones – the feature ensures a sharper display of movements, for example when scrolling, and faster operation. However, the screen only has a resolution of 1,600 x 720 pixels.

An unspecified eight-core processor and 4 GB of RAM are responsible for the performance. Four cameras are attached to the rear: a 48-megapixel main camera, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, a 2-megapixel copy for macro shots at close range and a 2-megapixel depth sensor for the blurring effect in portraits. The selfie cam has a resolution of 13 megapixels and sits in a display notch on top. In addition to a headphone jack, connectivity also includes Wi-Fi 5 and Bluetooth 5.0. The cell phone is unlocked with a fingerprint sensor on the side, and the 5,000 mAh battery promises a very long runtime.

The main camera has a resolution of 48 megapixels and, in addition to a 5-megapixel camera for ultra-wide-angle shots, there is a 2-megapixel depth sensor. The selfie cam in the display notch has 8 megapixels. Wi-Fi 5, a headphone jack and Bluetooth 5.0 are also offered here.
