The Samsung Galaxy A22e 5G obtains Bluetooth certification

Samsung unveiled the Galaxy A22 4G and 5G last June and followed up with the Galaxy A22s 5G in November, which is just a rebranded A22 5G. And while we wait for the Korean conglomerate to announce the Galaxy A23, we are now hearing about a new smartphone that may soon go official – the Galaxy A22e 5G.

The Samsung Galaxy A22e 5G has achieved Bluetooth SIG certification, bringing it closer to launch. The CA doesn’t reveal the specs of the A22e 5G, but it does tell us that the smartphone has the model designation SC-56B, which is the same as the Galaxy A22 5G launched in Japan last year. which means the A22e 5G could share specs with the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G.

It should be noted that the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G and the one announced last June have different specifications. For starters, the Japanese model has a smaller (5.8″) TFT display with lower resolution (HD+) and 60Hz refresh rate, packs a smaller battery (4000mAh), and comes with a total of two cameras instead of four – a primary 13MP unit on the rear and a 5MP selfie shooter inside the notch.

The Japanese Galaxy A22 5G is 8.9mm thick, weighs 168 grams and is rated IP68. It also has an NFC chip on board but skips the side-mounted fingerprint reader. The smartphone runs Android 11 and comes with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. However, it also has a microSD card slot for storage expansion up to 1TB.

Samsung claims the Japanese Galaxy A22 5G is powered by an octa-core processor, with power cores having a maximum clock frequency of 2.2 GHz and efficiency cores capped at 2 GHz. Samsung didn’t mention the name of the chipset, but it could be the Dimensity 700 SoC we have on the non-Japanese A22 5G.

It’s unclear when Samsung will introduce the Galaxy A22e 5G, but you can expect to hear more about it as it holds more certifications.
