Samsung Galaxy A22 5G price

Samsung Galaxy A22 5G price will reportedly be around KRW 200,000 (approx Rs 13,400), which would make it cheaper than the rumoured Galaxy A32 5G price of EUR 299 (around Rs 26,900). The latter is rumoured to offer hardware such as the MediaTek Dimensity 720 5G chipset, while the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G specifications are still under wraps.

After facing backlash among part suppliers recently, Samsung has stopped the ODM order system, wherein Chinese firms design and produce phones for Samsung. Instead, the company is undertaking the JDM (joint development and manufacture) strategy.

Samsung will reportedly develop and manufacture the Galaxy A22 5G with Chinese firms like Wingtech and Hwachin. The phone will be made available in markets like India and Southeast Asian countries. Unfortunately, not much else is known about the Samsung Galaxy A22 5G launch or specifications at the moment but we hope to learn more information soon.
