Recent launches by Samsung
Galaxy F22 will be the fourth smartphone in the Galaxy F series in 2021. Samsung has so far launched Galaxy F62, Galaxy F12 and Galaxy F02s. Samsung is rumoured to launch the Galaxy A22 in India as well. Considering the Galaxy F22 will be identical to the Galaxy A22 4G, Samsung could bring only the 5G model to India. Or it may just launch both the phones since Samsung is known to do so.
