The part of my brain that never reached the age of seven knows that two things are cool: fighters and Sonic the Hedgehog. The latter has had a hard time since 1994but supersonic planes always stay cool. So when I saw the Galaxy F22, I had a fleeting idea that perhaps Samsung had made a tiny fighter jet, or perhaps just a phone styled as a fighter jet. Like there were exhaust stickers around the speakers or something.
No, it’s just a dumb phone. It doesn’t have jet engines, it doesn’t fire rockets, it doesn’t even fly, unless you throw it like a flying saucer. And it’s such a shame that you can do just that.
SamMobile Records that the Galaxy F22 (UGH) will be more or less identical to the non-5G A22 variant based on a series of regulatory rosters just renamed for the Indian market. This means it will use a 6.4-inch AMOLED screen with 720p @ 90Hz, a MediaTek Helio G80 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage with a possible 6GB / 128GB version. It uses a quad rear camera with Samsung’s fairly common 48MP main shooter, an 8MP ultra-wide one with a 2MP depth sensor and macro, and a large 13MP front camera. Other notable features include a microSD card slot, a side fingerprint sensor, and a 5,000mAh battery with 15W charging.
Samsung Galaxy F22 cannot reach speeds of up to Mach 1.8, it cannot hit several air and ground targets at once, and it also lacks invisible geometry and radio-absorbing materials to minimize enemy detection. I guess you could put it in a black case or something. On the other hand, the Galaxy F22 will almost certainly cost less than US $ 300 million apiece. Based on the UK price of £ 199 and phones with similar specs in India, the starting price of around £ 15,000 seems reasonable.
