We have a pretty clear notion of what Samsung has planned after all of the leaks and rumours about the next Galaxy S22 series have surfaced online. Among these, the most popular speculation is that the S22 Ultra will be a successor to Samsung’s ill-fated Galaxy Note series, for which production was terminated last year.
For the S22 Ultra, this could entail an integrated S Pen, a larger display, and a squared-off design.
The most recent leak, however, is the most significant of them all, revealing not just comprehensive specifications and photos, but also a potential release date.
Samsung Galaxy S22
The Galaxy S22 will have a 6.1-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 1080p resolution, a variable refresh rate of up to 120Hz, a maximum brightness of 1500 nits, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection, according to the source.
Depending on the location, the smartphone will be equipped with either an Exynos 2200 chipset or a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor. North America will get the Snapdragon version of the Exynos 2200, while Europe will get the 4nm version.
The Exynos 2200 will also be the first smartphone processor to use AMD’s RDNA2 GPUs, which are present in the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. In addition, the smartphone will include 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage.
Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and 5G will be available as connectivity options.
The standard Galaxy S22 will include a triple-lens system in terms of optics. It will have a 50MP primary sensor, as well as a 12MP ultrawide and a 10MP telephoto sensor with 3x zoom. There will be a 10MP selfie camera on the front.
The vanilla variant will be powered by a 3,700mAh battery that supports both wired and wireless charging.
In terms of pricing, the entry-level 8/128GB model will cost €849 ($952), while the 8/256GB variant will cost €899 ($1,008).
Samsung Galaxy S22+
When compared to the standard Galaxy S22, the Galaxy S22+ will retain the same overall design while adding a larger display and a larger battery.
The Galaxy S22+ will include a 6.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen with a 120Hz variable refresh rate, a greater peak brightness of 1750 nits, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
Depending on the location, an Exynos 2200 SoC or a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 will be found under the hood. The gadget is believed to come with the One UI 4.0-based Android 12 OS preloaded.
The smartphone will weigh 195g, which is slightly more than the vanilla variant’s 167g.
However, unlike the vanilla model’s 3,700 mAh battery, you’ll get a somewhat larger 4,500 mAh battery this time. According to previous claims, the battery will also enable 45W rapid charging.
You’ll get the same camera unit as the standard Galaxy S22 for photography. It will have the same 50MP primary sensor, as well as a 12MP ultrawide and a 10MP telephoto lens with 3x zoom. A 10MP selfie camera is located on the front of the phone.
The 8/128GB version of the Galaxy S22+ will cost €1,049 ($1,177), while the 8/256GB model will cost €1,099 ($1,133).
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra
Finally, we have the Galaxy S22 Ultra, the series’ most anticipated model, which is intended to carry on the tradition of the Note series. The smartphone will have a 6.8-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X display with a 1440p resolution, a 120Hz variable refresh rate that can dip as low as 1Hz, a maximum brightness of 1750 nits, and Gorilla Glass Victus protection.
The display also incorporates a punch-hole cut-out housing the 40MP selfie camera.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will be quite identical to the Galaxy S21 Ultra in terms of hardware, with the exception of better and upgraded processing. We’ll see an enhanced quad-camera unit in the next-gen Ultra model of the series.
It will have a 108MP primary sensor with OIS, as well as two 10MP telephoto lenses and a 12MP ultrawide lens.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will sport the largest battery of the bunch, at 5,000mAh, as well as a built-in S Pen, bringing the total weight to 227g.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra will cost €1,249 ($1,401) for the base 8/128GB variant, €1,349 ($1,513) for the 12/256GB variant, and €1,449 ($1,625) for the 12/512GB variant, according to the specifications.
This is all of the information mentioned in the leak; we’ll learn more once the corporation makes the flagship series official at a special launch event next month. On February 25, the series will be available in Europe.
