Samsung Galaxy S22

Samsung’s release of new phones has always been a very hyped event, and with the expected release date, early 22 or even December of 2021, of the new Samsung Galaxy S22 approaching us soon, the rumors have started to spread like wildfire.

Galaxy S21 is a great phone and the camera is powered with 100X Zoom and 8K 24FPS video abilities. We could already consider what the company would be improving for the Samsung’s S22 series.

Until now, the official updates tipped by Samsung have all been around the phone’s camera, but rumors have stated that the Galaxy S22 is also expected to bring in Snapdragon 895 chip or its own Exynos 2200.

Samsung is continuously aiming for the skies with its Galaxy smartphones – but there’s always a chance of amendments. Let’s discuss what Samsung could bring us for upcoming phone.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Design

Ice Universe, a well-acclaimed leaker, has claimed that the upcoming phone will take a step back and reduce the size of the screen in the primary variant as the Galaxy S22 will incorporate a 6.06-inch display compared to the 6.2-inch screen on the Galaxy S21. However, the S22 Plus will take the screen to 6.7-inches, and the S22 Ultra display will supposedly go up to 6.8-inches. TechRadar had somewhat confirmed the claim as their source states that the screen will also boast a whopping 120Hz refresh rate.

The shrink in the size of the display of Galaxy S22 was also backed up by SlashGear.

The same source seemingly claims that both the S22 and the S22 Plus models are expected to incorporate FHD + resolution, while the S22 Ultra will boast an impressive QHD+.

Leaker Ice Universe also claimed that they have found out the phone’s dimensions, and they look impressive. They claim that:

  • Galaxy S22 weighs 146 x 70 x 7.6mm, weighs 167g
  • S22 Plus weighs 157.4 x 75.8 x 7.6mm and 195g
  • The Galaxy S22 Ultra weighs 163.3 x 77.9 x 8.9mm and 228g

Making the upcoming phone possibly smaller and a better fit for the average hand sizes.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Camera

Now the most important updates that people have been looking forward to has to be the cameras; as Apple 13 pulled up with amazing picture quality, Samsung is expected to come up with something even more radical, and with recent tweets talking about how Samsung is planning on a partnership with a reputed camera brand, that seems to be the case.

The biggest contender in this regard seems to be Olympus. Olympus has recently announced that they are looking for firms to work along with, and there aren’t many better options out there than Samsung. The two Tech Titans may come together to introduce new tech into the line of phones.

Additionally, the S22 and S22 Plus are rumored to incorporate a 3x optical zoom. While the Ultra would have 3x and 10x zoom, much like the currently available lineup with S21.

Reports have claimed a source that believes the standard Samsung Galaxy S22 model and S22 Plus will have.

  • 50MP main lens
  • 12MP telephoto lens
  • 12MP ultra-wide camera.

While the S22 Ultra will boast.

  • 108MP main lens
  • 12MP ultra-wide-angle lens
  • two 12MP telephoto lenses


The processor of the expected Samsung Galaxy S22 is expected to get a massive upgrade as NoteBookCheck suspects that Samsung might be the first company to produce a Snapdragon 895. And with the rumored GPU based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture expected to make an appearance with the S22, Galaxy might just beat everyone when it comes to mobile gaming.

If Samsung opts for the Exynos 2200 chipset, they might even incorporate Ray Tracing in their upcoming phones.


Every rumor that we have come across had something to say about the charging capabilities of the phone. We have heard that Samsung plans on reintroducing the 65W fast charging with the Galaxy S22.

The Samsung Galaxy S22 is expected to have a 3800mAh battery; the S22 Plus supposedly enjoys a 4600mAh battery, while the Ultra runs away with the massive 5000mAh. Reliable TechRadar has also brought to attention that Samsung has been testing a 45W or 65W power supply. This is a significant improvement over the current 25W of the S21 series, meaning charging gets faster.

Samsung Galaxy S22 release date

Samsung has not officially announced the release date of the S22, but it is expected to release in 2022. The company moved up the release date of the Galaxy S21 from its typical February timeframe to January 29. That said, Samsung may even bring the launch of S22 forward and announce the handset earlier.


Unexpectedly, however, there haven’t been many rumors regarding the price of the phone. Still, looking at past trends, Galaxy S22 is expected to cost $799. The S22 Plus could cost around $999. And the S22 Ultra is expected to be priced at $1,199.
