NS Samsung Galaxy S21 Impressed us with its solid all-round performance and better balance of features and price. NS Galaxy S21 Ultra Meanwhile we blew away with its incredible camera setup and ability to take great zoom-in shots. But what about the follow-up series? We look forward to seeing Galaxy S22 will bring.

Here, we think we can see from the Galaxy S22.

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 typically follows a 12-month cycle of updating its handsets, so we currently expect the S22 to be announced in January 2022, possibly at or around the CES tech show in Las Vegas.

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. Hopefully by the time the COVID-19 restrictions ease a bit, Samsung may be intending to hold an in-person launch event, which it often does simultaneously in cities around the world.

Galaxy S22 may have smaller display and battery than its predecessor

Samsung may offer a slightly smaller display size for the Galaxy S22 line. According to Twitter leaker FronttronThe Galaxy S22 could have a 6.01-inch screen, the Galaxy S22 Plus could have a 6.55-inch screen, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra could have a 6.81-inch screen. For comparison, the Galaxy S21 lineup has 6.2-, 6.7- and 6.8-inch displays respectively.

The battery could also be smaller in the Galaxy S22 lineup. Tron estimates that the S22 and S22 Plus will feature 3,800- and 4,000-mAh batteries, respectively. The leaker says that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will retain its 5,000mAh cell.

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 do think it’s a safe bet that the company will try to match the S20’s estimated price rather than level it back up.

Galaxy S21, S21 Plus and S21 Ultra.

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 on a more modest budget, it’s possible that the company will also make the more affordable Galaxy S22 FE, though it won’t launch with the range – we’re not expecting it S21 FE till the end of this year. NS Galaxy S20 FE (FE stands for Fan Edition) launched in October 2020, eight months after the flagship S20 lineup. NS Fan Edition phone sacrifices some smart features and specifications To get a more budget friendly price.

However, we don’t know for sure what each Galaxy S22 model will look like, according to renders shared by Number and tipster @onleaksThe design of the Galaxy S22 Ultra could be the same Galaxy Note 20 With a slot for the S Pen and flat edges on the top and bottom of the phone. Digit and @OnLeaks also suggest that the new Ultra model from Samsung will feature a P-shaped camera module with a quad-camera setup.

This render of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, shared by Digit and @OnLeaks, shows the upcoming smartphone coming with an S Pen slot, a similar design to the Galaxy Note 20, and a P-shaped camera module.

Galaxy S22 may support 65W charging

Samsung may upgrade the S22 lineup with 65-watt charging support leaker fronttron. The tipster posted on Twitter in July that the 65-watt fast charging for the Rainbow RGB is in the testing phase, a rumor code name For S22 series. If this speculation turns out to be correct, the S22 will offer significantly faster charging times than the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy Note 20 lineupIn 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 the next generation of both chips will be used, possibly the Snapdragon 895 (which is expected to launch in December this year) and the Exynos 2200.

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 – topped with Samsung’s own user interface, includes additions like Samsung Health, Samsung Pay and more 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 pushed things up to 6.7 inches, while the S21 Ultra stepped up to 6.8 inches. Some early rumors suggest that Samsung will shrink the S22 and S22 Plus to 6.05 inches 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?

Some 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 earlier rumors suggest that it will be the first Samsung phone with 200-megapixel resolution, based on a teaser tweet from Samsung’s own Exynos account showing the 200-megapixel 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. However, Ice Universe suggested (via) GSM Arena) that the phone will retain its 108-megapixel sensor, with main camera specs almost identical to the S21 Ultra.

Ice Universe also speculated that Samsung may introduce 50-megapixel RGBW and a 200-megapixel camera sensor this year. Liker Yogesh Brar Added to the prediction of the Ice Universe That is to say, the RGBW sensor can also be shown in the Galaxy S22 series.

Speaking of zoom, however, the S22 Ultra is rumored to get continuous optical zoom, rather than just setting the lens to either a 3x or 10x optical zoom to switch between. 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 smaller than you would if you were using a 10x optical lens. Looks quality. A continuous zoom will allow optical zoom over the entire zoom range without cutting.

However, other rumors suggest that the new camera specs of the Galaxy S22 Ultra might not be as exciting. According to an August report Galaxy ClubOf course, the Ultra model of Samsung’s upcoming smartphone could feature the same camera hardware as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, with a 108-megapixel main camera, 10-megapixel periscope, 10-megapixel telephoto, and a 12-megapixel ultrawide lens.

The base S22 and S22 Plus models aren’t expected to get the same camera boost, so the question remains whether the S22 Ultra will stand out and justify spending the extra cash. Still expect to see multiple lenses and a 50-megapixel main sensor.

Colour: Could the Galaxy S22 come in burgundy and green?
