Top Upcoming smartphones in Nepal (Unannounced):
Samsung Galaxy A22 4G
Samsung is reportedly working on the Galaxy A22 5G, which can launch as the company’s most affordable 5G smartphone. The 5G version is unlikely to be launched anytime soon, but its 4G variant may be on the way, as the device has been spotted on the Indian BIS variant.
The unit may pack a Snapdragon 480 SoC or a Dimensity 700 SoC. Moreover, Galaxy A22 4G could have a 13MP front camera and a quad-camera system with a 48MP main, an 8MP secondary, and two 2MP cameras. The phone could come in a variety of colors, including gray, white, light green, and purple.
In addition to the launch of the Realme 8 5G, the company’s CEO also hinted at the launch of the Realme 8i. Also, the device appeared in the TENAA database with the model number RMX2205, which showed some of the phone’s specifications.
We don’t know for sure if it’s the Realme 8i though. But, it seems to be the most eligible contender at the moment. The TENAA certification reveals a dimension of 158.5 x 73.3 x 8.4 mm and a display size of 6.43-inch. Since there is no physical fingerprint sensor, we assume the handset will sport an AMOLED panel. The phone packs a 4,400mAh battery and runs Android 11 with Realme UI 2.0 on top.
