Samsung Galaxy S22 series: All the rumors and what we want to see

Samsung Galaxy S22 series: It has been over six months since Samsung introduced the Galaxy S21 series. Samsung has also revealed its new set of foldable phones, the Galaxy Z Fold 3/3 and Z Flip 3 3. The Galaxy S22 series will be the next generation of flagship Samsung phones, with no plans to release Galaxy Note phones in 2014.

Already, leaks and rumours have made numerous appearances of the Samsung S series phones. According to what we have heard, there are many things that could change for the phones in 2019. We expect big camera upgrades, faster charging and new chipsets. The Galaxy S22 series will offer something for everyone, just like the S21 trio. This is what we know so far, and what we hope to see.

Samsung Galaxy S22 series: Name & Release Date

Samsung has not yet officially revealed the name for the next Galaxy S device. We believe that Samsung will continue to use the same nomenclature as the Galaxy S20 series. The new phones will be referred to as the Galaxy S22. We doubt Samsung will break with convention next year, as all the leaks that we have seen so far refer to the three new phones in the Galaxy S22 lineup: the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Samsung moved the launch date of the Galaxy S21 series almost one month ahead. Instead of Samsung’s normal practice of revealing Galaxy flagships in February, the phones were released in January. It is too early to predict whether Samsung will continue to launch the Galaxy S22 series in January. Samsung may have to delay its launch date to February due to the ongoing global chip shortage. For now, we can assume that the new flagships launch in the first two-months of 2022.

We are sure that we will hear rumors about the launch date for the Galaxy S22 series at the end of this year. If and when it happens, we’ll update this blog.

Design

The Galaxy S series has been updated almost every year by Samsung. The rear camera module of the S21 series received a new look. The Galaxy S21 standard model was also a glass-to-glasstic design. It joined the Galaxy S21 Plus to adopt flat displays instead of the curved screens found in the Galaxy S20 series.

These changes were well received by many users and we believe Samsung will continue to make them. The flat panel and plastic construction make the design more durable. They likely helped Samsung reduce the price of its Galaxy S21 flagships to $799.

Samsung won’t be able to reverse gear and use curved displays again with glass backs. Samsung can always change the way it presents its rear camera module, and that’s what we expect to see on the Galaxy S22 smartphones.

FrontTron, a Twitter tipter, has revealed that the Galaxy S22 will not use Samsung’s underdisplay camera tech. This technology was first introduced on the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and is now being used in the Galaxy S22. Samsung could use the punch-hole cutout on the front once more.

Specifications and features

We have a pretty good idea of some key specs for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series thanks to the tipster. We recommend that you take this leak with a grain.

According to a leaker, the vanilla Samsung Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06-inch LTPS screen, while the S22 Plus may have a 6.55 inch screen. The Galaxy S22 Ultra may be the only model to receive an LTPO panel. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to have the same 6.8 inch footprint as the S21 Ultra.

This leak also reveals some camera upgrades for the Galaxy S22 trio. The Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Plus will likely get rid of the 12MP main camera in favor of a 50MP primary. It could be Samsung’s Isocell GN2 sensor, which is capable of producing 12.5MP pixel-binned photos. It can also record 4K/120fps slow motion, have an upgraded dual-pixel autofocus and produce 480fps video at 720p.

Yogesh, a Twitter tipter, suggested that the Galaxy S22’s 50MP sensor could also be an RGBW (red green, blue and white) unit. The white added to the pixels will allow for better low-light photography. We haven’t yet heard from any other leakers about this information.

The 50MP sensor in the Galaxy S22 or S22 Plus might be accompanied by a 12MP ultra-wide camera and a 12MP Telephoto Sensor.

The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s leaks suggest that the phone will have a 108MP main sensor, two 12-megapixel telephoto shooters, and another 12MP ultrawide camera. It is also possible that the setup will include laser autofocus.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 series will see camera improvements, but new SoCs will make it more powerful. The next Snapdragon flagship, the Snapdragon 898, should power the series in the US. However, all eyes will be on Samsung’s Exynos 2200 chipset and AMD GPU. The new Exynos will offer ray tracing capabilities and variable rate shading to Samsung’s flagships, as we already know. The company will reveal the SoC later in the year, so we’ll have to wait to see what else they offer.

The S22 Plus and vanilla Galaxy S22 might see a slight decrease in their battery power. These phones can draw power from 3,800mAh or 4,600 batteries respectively, rather than the 4,000mAh or 4,800mAh batteries found on the Galaxy S21 Plus and S21 Plus. The Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a 5,000mAh battery. This is the same model as the Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S22: Wishlist

We’re passionate about seeing Samsung do a lot more. Here are six things that we would like to see in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series. These are realistic hopes, so they’re not utopias. Samsung would be able to make all of these changes. Let’s get on with it.

Faster wired charging

Samsung has been far behind the curve in wired charging speeds for many years. The Galaxy S21 series phones can charge at 25W using a cable. This is half the speed of the OnePlus 9 series. It’s actually lower than the OnePlus 8 series in 2020 and the OnePlus 7 series in 2019.

Samsung will not offer 45W chargers with the Galaxy S22 series boxes. It’s a shame, but it means that people who are interested in fast charging will be able to choose. 25W is no longer sufficient.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus has more perks

The differences between the vanilla Galaxy S vs its Plus counterpart were significant in the past. We see more rear cameras lenses, better resolution displays, and more RAM.

This was not the case for the Galaxy S21 series. The Galaxy S21 Plus and Galaxy S21 Plus have almost identical features, with the exception of a glass back, larger display/body, and slightly larger battery. The Galaxy S21 Plus is $200 less expensive than the Galaxy S21 Plus, which is a problem in and of itself.

In a moment, we’ll be discussing our possible pricing structure for Samsung Galaxy S22 Series. We will say for now that Samsung must either add more perks to its Plus model or lower the price. We recommend faster wired charging and a higher resolution display. A slightly more expensive camera system is also recommended.

The Galaxy S22 Plus price must drop by at least $100. There is no reason to pay $200 more for a slightly larger phone.

MicroSD slots can be used to store and return more data

All phones in the Galaxy S21 Series support 8K video recording. Recording at this quality takes a lot of data. It can take up to 10MB per second. Your files will be massive, even if you choose to record at 4K. Strangely enough, the Galaxy S21 series comes with 128GB internal storage and no way to increase it.

We understand why Samsung has removed microSD card support for the Galaxy S21 series. This is not a feature that consumers love and makes phones more difficult to design and expensive. The company cannot have both its cake and the same thing. It can’t get rid of expandable storage, but it can offer higher internal storage levels as a baseline.

We hope that the company will correct this error with the S22. We would love to see the microSD card slot back. That seems like the perfect compromise. We would prefer 256GB internal storage for phones if that is not possible. This would allow you to record at most five hours of 8K footage before running out of space.

You have a wider selection of colors to choose from

We are a little picky about this item. Samsung offers a wide range of colors for the Galaxy S21 Series, as most Galaxy S fans are aware. A few can be seen in the image below.

The vanilla Galaxy S21 is available in four colors, including Phantom Gray, Phantom White and Phantom Pink. I don’t know about you but I don’t find the pink or purple colors appealing to me as a man in my 30s. I have two options: gray or white. Boring. Even worse is the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which comes in Phantom Black or Phantom Silver (or Navy Blue for those who visit Best Buy). There isn’t much variety.

Samsung should continue to offer a wide range of colors on its phones. But, it would be great to have some more. I don’t have to choose between boring neutrals or pastel Easter colors. There are many options.

Seamless updates

This is a major complaint with the Galaxy S line, as well as all Samsung phones. After receiving a system upgrade, your Samsung phone must be restarted. It will then go through several updates and then analyze and optimize the apps. This entire process can take between five and 20 minutes. It is excessive.

Pixel phones also have seamless updates. The majority of the actual updating process takes place in the background, while the phone is being powered on. While the update is happening, you can still use your phone as normal. After it is done, you can restart your phone for the normal time. It is much easier to use.

Samsung should end its tedious update process for the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series. We hope so. It would be easier and more convenient for people to update their phones more frequently.

Samsung Galaxy S22 pricing matches Galaxy S21

Samsung has mastered the pricing strategy of the Galaxy S21 series. The vanilla Samsung Galaxy S21 flagship is an affordable and well-priced option at $799. The Galaxy S21 Ultra is significantly cheaper at $1,199 than the 2020 Galaxy S20 Ultra.

We’ve already discussed how the Galaxy S21 Plus was the odd-man out in the pricing scheme. But a $999 phone makes sense. Samsung should stick to this pricing strategy for the Galaxy S22 series, or at least try to emulate it as closely as possible.

This is the way Apple has done it for years. The vanilla iPhone 12 is $799, excluding the iPhone 12 Mini. The iPhone 12 Pro Max is $1,099. While the iPhone 12 Pro Max costs $999, the iPhone 12 Pro Max is just $799. It’s amazing to think that what works for Apple will also work for Samsung.

These prices could rise depending on what upgrades are available in the Samsung Galaxy S22 Series. We hope Samsung does all it can to prevent that. The strategy that worked in 2021 was very successful, and it’s not unreasonable to expect it to work again in 2022.
