Samsung has done a great job providing Android updates for some of its smartphones. However, there are always some devices that will inevitably have to wait long periods. After all, the company has to cover a huge myriad of smartphones and the list is only growing every year. Of course, older devices will start to lose support, but there are still some devices that are exceptions. Anyway, today is the day for all Galaxy M22 owners waiting for Android 12. The device is relatively new and was released in September last year. The device arrived with Android 11 and finally received the promised Android 12. It is interesting that the new update comes with One UI 4.1 directly from the box with the latest Samsung goodies for its smartphones. After the Galaxy M30S, it’s time for the M22 to get a taste of Android 12.
The Samsung Galaxy M22 is receiving the One UI 4.1 update which also brings the April 2022 security patch. This is obviously not the latest version. However, it is a low-end smartphone and we assume that the company completed the tests with the April review. It is worth noting that this is also the Core version of One UI. Therefore, some of the features that are available in higher versions will not be available on this smartphone. However, the Core version is available by release, so it’s not that Samsung is downgrading this device.
The Galaxy M22 update bears version number M225FVXXU4BFD8. At the time of writing, the update is being circulated in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. However, we expect the company to expand the circulation of updates to more areas very soon.
Galaxy M22 specifications
As a low-end smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy M22 is very mediocre in specifications. However, there are some interesting specifications on the packaging. For example, it has a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz and Full HD + resolution. Under the hood, the phone will carry a MediaTek Helio G80 processor with Mali-G52 MC2 GPU. Going backwards, the device has a Quad-Camera setting. The device has a 48 MP main camera with optical image stabilization. There is also an 8 MP transceiver, a 2 MP macro and a 2 MP depth sensor. There is also a 13 MP selfie snapper. The handset is powered by a 5,000 mAh battery with 25 W fast charging support. Finally, we have a fingerprint scanner mounted on the side.
Theoretically, the Galaxy M22 is suitable for another update for Android 13. However, time will tell if Samsung will be able to honor that.
