There is nothing left for one of the most anticipated launches of the year to arrive, that of Samsung and its new Samsung Galaxy S22 range.
Although the date on which the South Korean giant will celebrate its next Unpacked 2022 has yet to be confirmed, everything indicates that it will take place on February 8, 2022 and that the same day the pre-order phase would begin.
Samsung has also not released a pledge about the specifications that we will see in these new high-end cell phones, but if we rely on several leaks and rumors that have been circulating in the industry in recent months, we can make a fairly accurate robot portrait.
How many Samsung Galaxy S22 will we see?
Samsung is likely to introduce three phones as it has done so far. It is specific, we could see the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra models.
At the moment it seems that it will take a little longer to see an economic device based on this new family, since the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE has just been launched on the market.

What about the design?
According to reports, the three models will have different screen sizes: the Samsung Galaxy S22 will be 6.06 inches, the Samsung Galaxy S22+ will be 6.55 inches, and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will be 6.81 inches.
If we rely on the images published by the reputed leaker OneLeaks, The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a similar design to the Galaxy Note, with straight lines and a different look for the camera module.

The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ would have a design similar to that of the S21, since they would maintain the curves and the layout of the rear cameras. As for cameras, one of the strongest rumors is that these models would arrive with the front sensor under the screen.
It’s no surprise that Samsung wants to pack the best power into its new flagship phones. The main chip is expected to be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the United States and that in the rest of the territories it will arrive with Samsung’s Exynos 2200 chip.
The phones will feature full spectrum 5G connectivity and other connectivity such as WiFi 6 and NFC. As with the previous generation, Samsung is not expected to include the charger in the box for the new Galaxy S22.
Less RAM? No Please
This is one of the rumors that we do not want to be true. And it is that although everything indicates that all the models of the S22 line will cost the same as their predecessors, a recent leak from the well-known leaker Roland Quandt, ensures that the base S22 Ultra could come with only 8 GB of RAM instead of the 12 GB that the previous model had.
Again based on in leaks not confirmed by the brand, we have that the camera modules of the Samsung Galaxy S22 would have a 1/1.57-inch 50 MP main sensor with 1.0 µm pixels and f/1.8 aperture. Some rumors pointed to a 200 MP sensor, but they lost quite a bit of steam.
What is expected is that they will have a 3x optical zoom telephoto lens and an ultra-wide-angle camera with a 12 MP sensor.
The front camera may be the same as in the Samsung Galaxy S21, that is, a 10 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture, 1/3.24-inch size and 1.22 µm. The phones are expected to feature a new optical stabilization system developed by Olympus.
A much faster S Pen
Tech YouTuber Zaryab Khan, who has revealed the detailed specifications of the Galaxy S22 Ultra, shared information about a possible update to the S Pen stylus. According to Khan, the next generation model will be 3 times faster than previous generations.

Various reports indicate that Samsung reduced the input latency to 2.8 milliseconds, which is a huge improvement over the 9 millisecond latency on the last-generation S Pen in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Input latency is roughly the time it takes for the software to respond after the pen touches the phone screen.
Price and launch
The dates of the presentation event and the official launch of the new phones have not been confirmed yet, but Samsung usually holds its main exhibitions on the same dates.
That said, several sources point out that the presentation event (the usual Unpacked) will take place on February 8 virtually, but that the manufacturer will show the devices to the media during the MWC 2022 celebration in Barcelona, the date for which these should be in the hands of buyers, as shipments are expected to begin on February 18.
As for the prices, they are estimated to be similar to those we saw in the S21 generation; starting at $699 for the Samsung Galaxy S21, $999 for the Samsung Galaxy S21+, and $1,199 for the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra.
