Forget Pixel 5a: Samsung Galaxy A22 could be cheap 5G phone to beat

Another Samsung Galaxy A22 5G has popped up and gives us a clearer look at the upcoming budget phone’s design; the Google Pixel 4a 5G might soon have stiff competition. 

We’ve seen the handset before, but these new leaked images from 91mobiles have not only shed more light on the Galaxy A22 5G’s design, but also its internal specs and the compromises it makes to bring 5G connectivity on a budget. 

While 5G connectivity first started appearing in handsets back in 2019, it was initially limited to expensive handsets like the $1,299 Samsung Galaxy S10 5G. But form 2020 onwards, 5G has trickled down into the likes of affordable Pixel phones and the OnePlus Nord. Samsung is no stranger to our best cheap phones list or the more affordable 5G arena, but the Galaxy A22 5G could be the handset to put it on top.

First, the design. As you can see from the picture above, the phone has the usual hallmarks of an entry-level Samsung handset with slightly thicker bezels (most notably around the base of the screen) and a teardrop central notch for the front-facing camera.
