Galaxy M22 surfaces with MediaTek’s Helio G80 chipset on the inside


Last updated: May 19th, 2021 at 08:11 UTC+02:00

Samsung’s got yet another Galaxy M series phones in the works, if a new listing spotted on the Geekbench benchmark website is anything to go by. And this new phone looks set to be a rebadged version of another rumored and upcoming Galaxy phone, the Galaxy A22. Or, at the very least, these two phones share the same processor: MediaTek’s Helio G80, which also powers the Galaxy A32 and will also be seen in the Galaxy M32.

The new M series phone has the model number SM-M225FV, which suggests it will launch as the Galaxy M22. The Galaxy A22 will come in a 5G variant as well, but it remains to be seen if the same will be true for the Galaxy M22. For now, details on the M22 are scarce except for what the benchmark listing tells us: The benchmarked unit was running Android 11 and has 4GB of RAM. A variant with more RAM will likely be available as well, as the Galaxy A22 is also in the works with 6GB of RAM.

Of course, without any official information, it’s not a certainty that the Galaxy M22 and Galaxy A22 will be similar on all fronts. But if they are, then the Galaxy M22’s spec sheet won’t excite too many people, though an affordable price tag — and perhaps a big battery, which is a Galaxy M series staple — should make up for that. We’ll let you know once we know more about the Galaxy M22, so stay tuned.
