Samsung Nepal arranged an online bloggers’ meet to promote the Samsung Galaxy F22 ‘s arrival. It is the first and so far only F-series smartphone to be released in Nepal. The device is very similar to the A22, although there are a few variations worth noting. So, let’s look at the Samsung Galaxy F22’s specifications, features, official pricing, and availability in Nepal.
The device comes pre-installed with One UI 3.1 (Core), which is based on Android 11. Samsung Nepal has committed to providing two years of Android updates and four years of security updates in Nepal. Bio-metrics are handled using a side-mounted fingerprint scanner
The Galaxy F22 is available for pre-order exclusively from Daraz Nepal.

Design and Build
When it comes to appearance, you won’t be able to identify the difference between the M32 and the Galaxy F22. The rear panels of both phones are glossy but gradient, with parallel lines running across the top and bottom of the panels.
Although the Galaxy F22 shares many of the same specs as the Galaxy A22, the Galaxy F22’s appearance is credited to the Galaxy M32.The front is glass (of course), with a plastic back panel and frame. The Galaxy A22 weighs 203 grams, owing to the 6,000 mAh battery. To be honest, the phone is big, and despite its 9.3mm thickness, it is nevertheless usable thanks to the curved edges on both the front and back panels.
On the other hand, the front sports a large display with adequately sized bezels, a dewdrop-shaped notch, and a broad chin.
There’s a power button on the right, as well as a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and a volume rocker on top of it, when it comes to I/O ports and buttons. On the top-left corner, there’s a SIM card slot.
As previously stated, the phone is powered by a MediaTek Helio G80 processor. Samsung has recently released numerous devices featuring the same processor, including the Galaxy M32, A22 4G, and A32 4G. Two Cortex-A75 (@2.0GHz) and six Cortex-A55 (@1.8GHz) CPU cores are included in this chip.
The Galaxy F22 comes in two RAM configurations: 4GB and 6GB. Internal storage capacities are 64GB and 128GB, respectively. You also get a dedicated microSD card slot for up to 1TB of storage expansion.
The Samsung Galaxy F22 features a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED 90hz display with a 20:9 aspect ratio. Because the smartphone was released after the A22, the Galaxy F22’s display is similar to the A22’s. In HDR mode, the display has a resolution of 720 by 1600 pixels and is claimed to provide 600 nits of brightness.
It’s an HD+ display on a sub-15K smartphone, and the F22 has much of the same specs as the A22, including the display. Unlike the Galaxy A22, which should have opted for an FHD+ display, the Galaxy F22 is less expensive, thus an HD+ display makes sense.
Because it’s a Super AMOLED panel, you’ll have the most advanced display technology on board. The colors are vibrant, and they truly stand out. Unless you point the display horizontally to eye level, viewing angles are excellent, so you won’t have any trouble seeing the display from any angle.
The Samsung Galaxy F22 comes with a OneUI Core 3.1 upgrade based on Android 11 pre-installed. This is a light version with improved performance for budget phones, including a better visual design, improved one-time permissions, and more.
The Samsung Galaxy F22 has a single front-facing camera and a quad-camera system on the back. A 13MP sensor is housed in an Infinity-U notch. On the back, there’s a 48MP wide-angle camera with PDAF and an f/1.8 aperture; an 8MP ultra-wide snapper with an f/2.2 aperture and a 123-degree field of view; a 2MP macro sensor with an f/2.4 aperture; and a depth sensor with the same f/2.4 aperture.
The camera performance is identical since the camera arrangement is identical. In the daytime, the 13MP selfie shooter is capable of providing better-than-average image quality. Without a doubt, Samsung’s camera performance has earned it a reputation, and the F22 will not disappoint.
Audio and other specs
The Samsung Galaxy F22 has a single bottom-firing loudspeaker that generates powerful sound but isn’t as good as luxury smartphone speakers. The speaker is loud, and gamers and binge-watchers will enjoy it, but that’s all there is to it. The earphone speaker for calling has outstanding sound quality as well.
With the Galaxy F22, you can use two 4G SIM cards as well as a microSD card for storage. I’ve used both Jio 4G and Vi 4G, with the former being far better. I won’t claim Vi is worse, but it depends on where you live, how many cell towers there are, and other considerations. It’s a Samsung Galaxy F22 with a variety of unlocking possibilities. You have the option of using the Pattern and PIN technique.
Almost all of the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy F22 are shared with the Galaxy A22, which is based on the M32. Because all three feature the same CPU, I’d say the Galaxy F22 is a really powerful smartphone, especially considering its pricing, which is far lower than the A22, let alone the more expensive Galaxy M32. The display is HD Super AMOLED, which is a significant turn-off with the A22.
Overall, the F22 delivers the same performance as the A22 while also providing a significantly lower price tag and a larger battery size. If you’re looking for a low-cost Samsung phone, I’d recommend the F22 if you don’t mind foregoing OIS and NFC
