The Samsung Galaxy S22 isn’t expected for some time, possibly making its debut in January 2022, but the rumor mill never stops.

He added that the Galaxy S22 could offer faster charging times than both the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 lineups with the help of 65W charging support.

Samsung Galaxy S21 was released in January 2021 and impressed us with its solid all-round performance and superior balance of price. Galaxy S21 Ultra Meanwhile, we were blown away by its incredible camera setup and ability to take great zoomed-in shots. But what about the follow-up series? We look forward to seeing what the Galaxy S22 will bring.

Here’s what we think we can see from the Galaxy S22.

Samsung Galaxy S22 vs Galaxy S21: Rumors about the new flagship’s release date and specs

Galaxy S22 release date: January 2022?

Samsung usually launched its S-series phones in March, but it bucked that trend in 2021 by launching the S21 line in January. The company usually follows a 12-month cycle of updating its handsets, so we currently expect the S22 to be announced in January 2022, possibly in Las Vegas or around the CES tech show.

However, it’s also possible that Samsung may want to give the S21 line a little more breathing room and return to the March launch schedule. With the COVID-19 restrictions easing up a bit by then, Samsung can expect to hold an in-person launch event, which it often holds together in cities around the world.

Price: How much will the Galaxy S22 cost?

sales of Galaxy S20 The line was not affected and it likely had a lot to do with higher prices in general, with widespread financial uncertainty for many due to the pandemic. The S21 offered the handset at slightly more affordable prices by swapping out the glass back panel for tough plastic. Here are all the differences between the Galaxy S21 and S20.

At launch, the base S20 came in at $1,000 in the US, while The base S21 cost $800 . cut on. While we don’t expect Samsung to try to make the S22 line cheaper, we think it’s a safe bet that the company will try and match the price point of the S21 rather than raise it back to the level of the S20.

Multiple Galaxy S22 Models: Plus and Ultra

It is also a sure bet that Samsung will offer multiple variants of the S22 line to offer different specifications at different prices. It’s likely we’ll see a base S22, as well as an upgraded S22 Plus and an S22 Ultra model, sitting at the top of the range with the best specs – and the highest price to match. (Here’s a comparison of the Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra variants.)

It’s a recipe that Samsung has followed over the past few generations and it’s clearly a strategy that works. For those with a more modest budget, it’s possible that the company will also do the more affordable Galaxy S22 FE, though it won’t launch with a range – we’re not expecting the S21 FE until later this year. Galaxy S20 FE (which stands for “Fan Edition”) launched in October 2020, eight months after the flagship S20 lineup. Fan Edition phone sacrifices some smart features and specifications To get a more budget friendly price.

Galaxy S22 may support 65W charging

Samsung may upgrade the S22 lineup with 65W charging support, according to leaker fronttron. The tipster posted on Twitter that 65W charging support is in the testing phase for Rainbow RGB, a rumored codename for the S22 series. If the speculation later turns out to be true, the S22 will offer significantly faster charging times than the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 lineups, which both have 25W charging.

Galaxy S22 processor, Android version and display

Samsung uses both Qualcomm Snapdragon chips and its Exynos processors in its S series phones – depending on the region – and we fully expect it to do the same again in the S22 line. But it is safe to assume that it will be the next generation of both chips, possibly the Snapdragon 895 (which is expected to launch in December this year) and the Exynos 2200.

back in 2019 Samsung partnered with graphics chip company AMD For better mobile graphics power, we haven’t seen any Samsung phone yet that comes equipped with dedicated AMD hardware. It’s possible that the S22 (or more likely, the S22 Ultra) may be the first AMD phone to boast superior graphics performance for gaming.

It’s also a safe bet that the S22 line will run Android 12 — Announced in June this year At Google’s I/O event And currently in beta form – with Samsung’s own user interface including Samsung Health, Samsung Pay, and additions like its Bixby virtual assistant software.

The display size will almost certainly vary depending on which model you choose. As with the S21 line, the base S21 was the smallest at 6.2 inches and the S21 Plus kicks things up a notch at 6.7 inches, while the S21 Ultra bumped up to an ever more 6.8 inches. Some early rumors suggest that Samsung will be making the S22 and S22 Plus a bit smaller – 6.05 and 6.5 inches respectively. The same rumors suggest that the S21 Ultra will remain largely the same size and, like the S21 Ultra, will be the only one in the range to offer variable refresh rates of up to 120Hz.

Galaxy S22 camera: 200-megapixel resolution?

Rumors suggest that it is the Hero S22 Ultra that will see the most exciting camera upgrade this time around. That’s good to hear, as the S21 Ultra’s camera is great, but it wasn’t a major upgrade compared to its predecessor.

Some current rumors suggest that this will be the first Samsung phone with 200-megapixel resolution, based on a teaser tweet from Samsung’s own Exynos account showing the 200MP phone camera. This will be a major upgrade from the already pixel-packed 108-megapixel S21 Ultra And would theoretically allow for crisper zoomed-in images.

Speaking of zoom, however, the S22 Ultra is rumored to get continuous optical zoom, instead switching between just the 3x or 10x optical zoom lens set up. Currently, if you zoom in to, say, the 7x zoom on the S21 Ultra, that will use a combination of optical zoom and digital cropping, resulting in images that look less quality than when you use the 10x optical lens. A continuous zoom will allow optical zoom over the entire zoom range without cutting.

While the base S22 and S22 Plus models aren’t expected to get the same camera boost, this ensures that the S22 Ultra stands out and justifies spending the extra cash. Still expect to see multiple lenses and a 50-megapixel main sensor.

Additional Features of Galaxy S22

Additional features like wireless charging, NFC for contactless payments, 5G connectivity, and an in-display fingerprint scanner are all pretty safe bets for the S22 model. It’s also likely that Samsung will continue to offer a base storage option of 128GB on all models, with upgrades available up to 256GB or 500GB for those who want extra space.

Don’t expect that storage to expand, though the S21 series ditched the option to add a microSD card. This was a real disappointment, especially as its higher resolution images and 8K videos take up a lot of space on the S21 Ultra. Fingers crossed for a comeback, but don’t get your hopes up.
