Samsung will officially unveil the Galaxy S22 flagship family only in February. However, now new smartphones in each version can be considered from almost all sides. Which one do you like the most?
Samsung Galaxy S22 release date
In fact, Samsung can surprise us with only one information, namely pre-order bonuses, which will open immediately after the presentation of the flagships. The Koreans have confirmed that the next Galaxy Unpacked will take place on February 9 at 18:00 Moscow time – journalists have already begun sending out invitations to the event.
Meanwhile, two weeks before the official release, all information about the devices was leaked to the network. Insider Evan Blass has published renderings that show the flagships in detail. You can’t see just the top and bottom of the devices, though there’s no doubt that there’s no room for a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Specifications Samsung Galaxy S22
All modifications of the Galaxy S22 will arrive in Russia with an Exynos 2200 processor, not Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. So buyers can see for themselves whether the chip created in collaboration with AMD will really be as good as marketers draw .
The Galaxy S22 and the S22 Plus version will be available in two memory configurations: 8/128 GB and 8/256 GB, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have three of them: 8/128 GB, 12/256 GB and 12/512 GB. In select markets there will be a fourth variant with 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of internal storage, but we do not expect it to be released in Russia.
It is also known that the Galaxy S22 will receive a 6.1-inch screen, Galaxy S22 + – 6.55-inch, and Galaxy S22 Ultra – 6.8-inch. Smartphones will be equipped with 3700 mAh, 4500 mAh and 5000 mAh batteries respectively. The base model supports 25W wired charging, while the others support 45W. There will be wireless and reverse charging functions, but the charger for the flagships will have to be purchased separately.
The front camera in the new generation of smartphones is located in a round hole at the top of the display. Everyone will get Dynamic AMOLED 2X screens with support for a refresh rate of 120 Hz (in the top-end Ultra, it will probably dynamically change in the range from 1 Hz to 120 Hz thanks to the LTPO matrix).
The cameras on the back of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are the same: 50 MP (f/1.8), 12 MP (f/2.2) with an ultra wide-angle lens, and 10 MP (f/2.4) with a telephoto lens that will provide 3x zoom. The S22 Ultra will offer a set of 108MP + 12MP ultra-wide + 10MP (f/2.4) 3x zoom + 10MP (f/4.9) 10x zoom.
While the camera specs of the Galaxy S22 Ultra aren’t much different from those of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, the Koreans will add a lot of AI-assisted photography technology so that buyers can look forward to a significant boost in photo quality.
