New leak reveals Galaxy M22 camera specs, are they upgrade-worthy?

It was discovered just earlier this week that Samsung has the Galaxy M22 in the works. Thanks to the phone's benchmark, details on its processor, operating system, and memory were revealed, and today, our friends over at GalaxyClub have come out with some new information on the upcoming budget smartphone.

You call this thing an upgrade, Samsung?

It seems the Galaxy M22 will not be worthy of an upgrade from the Galaxy M21 in the imaging department. The M22 reportedly has a 48MP main rear camera like the Galaxy M21, but the front camera is said to be a 13-megapixel affair as opposed to the 20MP sensor found on the M21. Of course, Samsung is no stranger to downgrading specs on newer phones, so maybe we shouldn't be too surprised here. It's possible some software optimization will help the M22 take better shots than its predecessor, though we wouldn't hold out hope.

The battery capacity might not be getting an upgrade, either: The M22 is said to feature a 6,000 mAh battery, just like the Galaxy M21 and the upcoming Galaxy M32. This isn't a bad thing, though. A 6,000 mAh battery is still pretty gigantic and should get the M22 through a couple of days on a single charge, and the MediaTek Helio G80 processor should ensure higher efficiency compared to the Exynos 9611 chipset that powers the Galaxy M21.

GalaxyClub's report also says that the Galaxy M22 is headed to Europe in black, blue, and white colors. We can expect India to be one of the launch markets as well, with no doubt a similar choice of colors. However, it remains to be seen when the Galaxy M22 will go official. The Galaxy M21 launched in March last year, so it's clear Samsung isn't sticking to a strict yearly schedule.
