    Samsung is expected to launch at least three Galaxy A-series smartphones soon, and all with 5G support. It looks like Samsung has another Galaxy A-series 5G smartphone in tow, and this one will be the cheapest so far. It's the Galaxy A22 5G, and this phone will reportedly launch next year.

    This is the first we're hearing about the Galaxy A22 5G, and it comes from a report by South Korean publication ET News. According to this report, Samsung will launch the Galaxy A22 5G in the second half of 2021, and it will be priced around KRW 200,000 which translates to roughly 13,400.

    Samsung's plan to launch a low-cost 5G smartphone is to compete with brands such as Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo who already have a couple of low-cost 5G smartphones. Other than its launch timeline, there isn't anything known about the specs of the smartphone. Galaxy A22 5G will be a successor to the Galaxy A21 that launched earlier this year. Galaxy A21 comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ punch-hole display, 3GB of RAM, a 4,000mAh battery, and four rear cameras.

    The report also mentions Samsung's plans for the other Galaxy A-series smartphones. This includes the Galaxy A32 5G that will launch in the first half of 2021. Samsung is also expected to launch the Galaxy A52 5G and Galaxy A72 5G smartphones next year. The new 5G phones will follow the launch of Samsung's flagship Galaxy S21 series that is expected to launch on January 14.
