Samsung Electronics has released the Galaxy A22 5G smartphone in the UK as it expands its 5G portfolio. The new device is claimed to be the first sub-£200 5G ready smartphone to be made and includes features such as a versatile camera and immersive display. 

The South Korean electronic company says that its A series of smartphones is designed to make its latest innovative products “more accessible to a wider audience. Conor Pierce, Vice President of Samsung Electronics Uk and Ireland, said: “The Samsung Galaxy A22 5G is an impressive device at excellent value that builds on our growing Samsung Galaxy A Series portfolio. 



“Featuring super-fast 5G connectivity, an immersive display and a versatile camera, our customers can experience next-generation speed and performance, demonstrating Samsung’s commitment to providing accessible devices without compromising on quality”, he said. 

A 5G immersive display experience 

According to Samsung, the new Galaxy A22 5G “revolutionises" daily routines with a faster, more responsive 5G network and real-time connectivity”. The smartphone is equipped with a 6.6inch FHD+ Infinity-V display which, when combined with 5G, ensures an immersive visual experience, the company claims. It also aims to enhance customers’ streaming and gaming experiences with a 90Hz refresh rate and 5,000mAh battery.



The Galaxy A22 5G also comes with four cameras: a 48MP main camera, a 5MP ultra-wide camera, a 2MP depth camera, and an 8MP front camera. Samsung says that the colour range for the A22 5G includes grey, white, and Violet, and has One UI Core 3.1 built-in software.
