Samsung had revealed earlier this week that it is bringing the Galaxy A22 5G to India. Today, the company has announced the smartphone’s pricing and availability for the Indian market. The Galaxy A22 5G comes with a starting price tag of INR 19,999 (around $270) for the variant with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at INR 21,999 (around $295).
It is the cheapest 5G smartphone from Samsung in India. The smartphone will be available in three colors: Green, Grey, and Violet. The Galaxy A22 5G will be available through Amazon, Flipkart, Samsung’s online store, other leading online stores, and authorized retail stores. The company is also offering a cashback of INR 1,500 to those who purchase the device using HDFC Bank credit or debit cards.
Galaxy A22 5G will get two major Android OS updates
The Galaxy A22 5G sports a 6.6-inch TFT LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone runs Android 11 (with One UI Core 3.1) out of the box, and Samsung has promised to offer two major Android OS updates to the device. It is equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 700 processor, 6GB/8GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a microSD card slot. The smartphone is powered by a 5,000mAh battery and is compatible with 15W fast charging.
It has an 8MP selfie camera and a 48MP+5MP+2MP rear-facing camera setup. The 48MP camera has PDAF and 2K video recording at 30fps. The 5MP camera sensor is placed behind an ultrawide lens. The Galaxy A22 5G has 11 5G bands, which means it will be future-ready when 5G networks are rolled out in India. The smartphone has a dual-SIM card slot, GPS, dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It is a perfect choice for customers who want their device to be future-ready with its 11 bands’ support and promise of two year OS upgrades.”
