A few days ago, it was reported that Samsung has started working on the successor of its Galaxy A21 model. As per reports, it was suggested that this new model would be named Galaxy A22 like the other Galaxy A 2021 models.
Today, the same model (Galaxy A22) has been listed on the Geekbench certification with a model number “SM-A226B.” The model number confirms that the device would also support 5G connectivity. The certification has revealed the chipset of the phone.
As can be seen, the all-new Galaxy A22 5G will be powered by the Dimensity 700 chipset, which is the most affordable chipset in Mediatek’s Dimensity series. It is expected that the 4G model would feature a different chipset like Helio G80 or G90 chipset, which doesn’t support the 5G network.
The chipset “Dimensity 700” is an octa-core chipset based on a leading 7nm production process, which is up to 28% more power-efficient than an equivalent 8nm process. The chipset features 2x Cortex-A76 cores (clocked @2.2GHz) and 6x Cortex-A55 cores (clocked @2.0GHz).
The phone has scored 562 points on single-core, while on multi-core, it has scored 1765 points which seems to be a decent score as the phone lies in the Entry-Level to Mid-Range category. The phone also features 6 Gigs of RAM and runs on the latest version of Android (Android 11).
Previously, the renders of Galaxy A22 have also been revealed, from which it is confirmed that the phone features a V-Shaped Notched display. On the backside, it features a triple camera setup placed in a square-shaped camera bump.
The phone also features a USB Type-C port and a 3.5mm headphone jack in terms of appearance. The all-new Galaxy A22 is expected to launch around June 2021.
