Samsung has been the leader in the camera department for years, especially in the Android space. It was among the first brands to introduce smartphones with QHD, 4K, and 8K video recording. However, the company has now introduced a weird video recording resolution in one of its smartphones.

The Galaxy A22 5G, which was unveiled a couple of months ago, features a 2K 30fps video recording mode. Usually, 2K refers to 2,048 × 1,080 pixels, but 2K on the Galaxy A22 5G refers to QWXGA (2,048 x 1,152 pixels) with an aspect ratio of 16:9. That’s a bit bigger than Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) but it is still not as good as QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels). Samsung isn’t even offering a Full HD 60fps mode on the smartphone.

As far as we’ve seen, the Galaxy A22 5G is the only Samsung smartphone that offers this video recording resolution. In comparison, the Galaxy A22 (non-5G), which has the MediaTek Helio G80 chipset, goes only as high as Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) 30fps. QWXGA is roughly 13% more pixels than Full HD, but it remains to be seen how many people end up using this resolution, considering that it is not the default resolution.

Would you choose this non-standard and uncommon resolution while recording videos?
