The Galaxy A22 has a length of 159 mm, a width of 74 mm, and a thickness of 8.4 mm. The weight of the item is 186 grammes. The main module of the Samsung Galaxy A22's triple camera is 48 megapixels.

The CPU, on the other hand, runs at 0.2 GHz faster. Both phones come with a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, and a headphone jack. Both include a fingerprint sensor in the power button, as well as Android 11.
