That being said, there are a few differences between these two phones. They look almost identical, but not the same, while there are many differences in the specifications department.
Both phones are made of plastic. Both have a flat display with a rather thick “chin”. They have similar looking camera setups on the back, but there are a few differences. On the Galaxy A22 5G, you’ll notice three cameras and an LED flash in the camera island. The Galaxy A22 contains four cameras, while an LED flash is placed underneath.
They also have different display notches. The Galaxy A22 5G comes with a water drop notch, while the Galaxy A22 includes a dew drop notch. Otherwise the designs look the same.
Now their specifications differ significantly. In fact, there are more differences than similarities here as they have different displays, SoCs, cameras, etc. We’ll talk about the 5G variant first.
