2022 isn't that far off, which probably means the Samsung Galaxy S22 isn't either. Rumors, leaks, and speculation are running right now, which means we already have a pretty good idea of what Samsung is preparing for Android phone buyers next year.

One of the most compelling rumors is that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a slew of Note line DNA, which our phone editor Jordan Palmer thinks could make it the Galaxy Note we've all been waiting for. And it's one of our most anticipated phones of 2022.

And across the entire lineup of next-gen phones, we're expecting camera updates, a new chipset, a refined design, and more. These updates are welcome. While our review of the Samsung Galaxy S21 was largely positive, buyers didn't seem as excited about all three of Samsung's flagship phones. The Galaxy S22 Ultra should be the most exciting model, as it leans to include an S Pen and a similar design to the Galaxy Note.

In particular, some refinement in camera performance would be appreciated, as the iPhone 13 series offers better image quality than the S21 in some scenarios. And the Galaxy S22 will also have to compete against the Google Pixel 6 and its Tensor chip, as well as the cheaper S21 FE, which was recently leaked again and is expected to arrive in January.

Here are all the early rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S22 and what we want to see from this series. And because the S22 is just one of many new devices expected from the Korean company next year, we've also put together a guide on what to expect from Samsung in 2022.

Samsung Galaxy S22 news (updated December 31)

  • A new Galaxy S22 Ultra render shows the front and back of the phone as well as the S Pen, and it looks like a proper Galaxy Note successor. 
  • The Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has also been tipped to have 1TB of onboard storage, meaning it could challenge the iPhone 13 Pro.
  • Leaker Ice Universe has given us some more details about how the Galaxy S22 Ultra will leverage AI to make its 108MP camera take even better shots.

Samsung Galaxy S22 release date rumors

A number of rumors point to the Samsung Galaxy S22 for a February release date. The latest rumors say that the reveal event will be on February 9, which will also be the day the pre-orders will open, followed by the full launch on the 25th. We had previously heard from the same source that the S22 would appear on February 8. But it seems like Samsung is struggling with its supply chain problems once again.

Assuming the launch date is now February, that would mean that the Galaxy S22 range will launch a little later than the Galaxy S21 line, which arrived in late January 2021. But this should indicate that the Galaxy S22 is back. up and running with its most common line. Launch cadence, which has often been sometime in February, sitting during Mobile World Congress time and thus attracting all the attention from the smartphone world.

Samsung Galaxy S22 price

With the Galaxy S21 line, Samsung cut the cost of all three models by $ 200 and we don't see prices going up again.

So if Samsung holds steady, the Galaxy S22 will cost $ 799, the Galaxy S22 Plus will cost $ 999, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be priced at $ 1,199.

However, a new rumor has the Galaxy S22 range tilted for a price increase. The Galaxy S22 will reportedly rise to a starting price of $ 849, the Galaxy S22 Plus to $ 1,049, and the Galaxy S22 Ultra to $ 1,299. Seeing the Ultra go up to the same price the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra was launched at isn't all that surprising given that it is expected to be a spiritual successor to the Note.

That being said, yet another rumor says that the Galaxy S22 could start at $ 799 just like its predecessor. This rumor comes from SamMobile, which cites sources claiming that claim. We are biased in believing this, as it would make sense for Samsung to keep the same price as non-Ultra models.

We're getting closer to the Galaxy S22 launch, as we've seen the first alleged live photos of the Galaxy S22. This is thanks to a leak from Ice Universe. The back shows a contour cut camera that's less pronounced, which is a good thing. 

Subsequent photos of what's likely the Galaxy S22 lineup show the same look for both the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus. The Galaxy S22 Ultra, on the other hand, has a matte back and a flatter design. The phone looks a lot like one of Samsung's Galaxy Note phablets, which is consistent with rumors we'll get into in a moment.

There is also a video leak of the Galaxy S22 showing all three models and backing up what we've seen in the photos. The S22 Ultra / S22 Note is definitely one of a kind with a flatter, squarer design and a built-in S Pen sleeve.

If the supposed leaked diagrams of the Galaxy S22 are to be believed, the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Pro will sport similar designs to their S21 predecessor but with smaller dimensions.

The regular S22 could measure 149.98 x 70.56 x 7.65mm, compared to 151.7 x 71.2 x 7.9mm. And the Galaxy S22 Pro (not the Plus) could be 157.43 x 75.83 x 7.65mm for the S22 Pro; the S21 Plus was 161.5 x 75.6 x 7.8mm.

On the other hand, a tip from the Mauri QHD leaker on Twitter claims that the Samsung Galaxy S22 will feature a slimmer design than the Galaxy S21. However, this can result in smaller batteries.

There's also a set of concept renderings for the Galaxy S22 from LetsGoDigital, highlighting potential design changes. These include a massive main chamber flanked by four smaller sensors and a possible active cooling system.

New information obtained by Let's Go Digital (from an alleged former Samsung employee) claims that the Galaxy S22 will look different than the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The site produced some renders showing a phone that looks a lot like the Galaxy S21 with a similar camera hump. Meanwhile, the S22 Ultra is expected to adopt a more Note-like design, further separating the upcoming Galaxy S22 family.

As for the colors, analyst Ross Young has tweeted the possible options. He claims that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus will come in black, green, rose gold, and white, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be available in black, green, white, and a dark red model.

Another detail of design information surrounding the Galaxy S22 models comes courtesy of the purported images of a trio of screen protectors for the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus, and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Following these images, if it's legit, it would appear that the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus models are indeed getting smaller displays with sizes around 6.06 and 6.55 inches respectively. While the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which will be a replacement for the Galaxy Note 22, will keep its 6.81-inch frame.

Last year, while the Galaxy S21 Plus and Ultra had glass backs, the standard S21 used a plastic back. However, that seems to be changing for the Galaxy S22 series, which Ice Universe says will have glass bodies for all three models in the range.

The screen protector for the rumored Galaxy S22 Ultra (more on that below) is particularly compelling as it shows how the phone could very much have the more rectangular shape of the seemingly defunct Galaxy Note phones, where as the smaller models have more rounded sides and overall shape.

If you are looking for more details, the Korean site ITMaterials and the leaker IceUniverse have found supposed wallpapers of the Galaxy S22, which have been simulated in versions published by LetsGoDigital.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra or Galaxy S22 Note

Things could get very interesting with the supposed Ultra version of the Galaxy S22 line, as that phone is set up to get much of the DNA from the seemingly dead Galaxy Note line. One rumor suggests that the phone could even get the Note name, launching as the Galaxy S22 Note instead of the S22 Ultra. (Until we hear a more definitive rumor about the phone's name, we'll continue to call it the S22 Ultra to avoid confusion.)

Leaker Evan Blass @evleaks has posted an official-looking render of the Galaxy S22 Ultra on Twitter, complete with square edges, a wider screen, and S Pen support. It definitely looks like a successor to the Galaxy Note.

A leaker from Twitter @hypark22 claims to have a dummy unit of a near-final Galaxy S22 Ultra, and it looks like a similar design to the Galaxy Note, complete with a camera array that's not as bulky as the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Another set of images of what is said to be a fictitious unit of the Galaxy S22 Ultra shows how it could have a more locked and boxy design that dates back to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

The generally trustworthy leaker OnLeakers has also shared unofficial versions of the Galaxy S22 family, with designs for the Galaxy S22 Ultra showing an unusual "P" -shaped camera array, also seen on dummy units. A note-like style is also evident, complete with the S Pen base, although that was not seen in the dummy units; The jury is out on the Galaxy S22 Ultra which has a built-in S Pen holder.

To further back up these renders, leaker Ice Universe has shared some leaked renders that are supposedly from the case of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. These again show a cutout for a P-shaped camera module and otherwise point to a note-like design.

However, a new rendering of the Galaxy S22 Ultra showed a phone with a different version of the P-shaped camera, with the phone keeping the same P-shape but divided into two modules; one holds a trio of cameras and a smaller pill-shaped module holds two cameras.

There is also a third idea of what the rear cameras would look like. The latest design, seemingly supported by the IceUniverse and FrontTron leakers, was produced by Technizo Concept for LetsGoDigital and shows a set of "waterdrop" cameras, with the lenses positioned separately and aligned with the back of the phone. It's a unique design that would make the S22 quite different from previous Galaxy S phones.

A fresh batch of Galaxy S22 Ultra renders have also been posted by LetsGoDigital in partnership with artist Giuseppe Spinelli. 

These build upon the other renders, further showing off the alleged rear camera design, as well as a render image that hints at what the phone might look like on display. If Samsung does indeed adopt this design, then we could be looking at a rather attractive handset that more than nods at the Note. 

Furthermore, the P-shaped camera design rumors was given more weight with what's claimed to be a leaked photo of the Galaxy S22 Ultra's back panel. As you can see in the photo above, there are cut-outs for cameras that back up the design we've seen in the renders so far.

Otherwise, the same square-edged design with a gently curved display is present, drawing upon the Galaxy Note's DNA and looking rather slick. Of course, this is all just a concept render so we need to take these with a pinch of salt. 

In terms of dimensions, the Galaxy S22 Ultra is tipped to measure 163.29 x 77.87 x 9.05mm, which would be bigger than the S21 Ultra’s 165.1 x 75.6 x 8.9mm frame.

However, leaker Jon Prosser got his hands on the leaked photos of the Galaxy S22 Ultra. He corroborates many of the rumors and other leaks we've listed here, including the quad cascading camera array, rounded edges, blocky design, and, yes, the S Pen. Samsung seems to lean heavily on the DNA of the Galaxy Note for the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

So Note fans will have something to be happy about if these leaked photos are true, and they appear to be, given that the screen is on in some photos and shows different things.

Prosser also said that the camera design would be a 108MP main sensor, 12MP ultra wide-angle, 10MP 3x telephoto, and 10MP 10x telephoto. That could make the Galaxy S22 Ultra the 2022 camera zoom champion, leaving others like Apple and Google in the dust.

This received further credit from well-known tech leaker Ice Universe, who apparently came up with a full set of specs for the Galaxy S21 Ultra. While on paper they look very similar to the Galaxy S21, improved sensors and potentially improved computational photography could make a difference. For example, a later tweet from IceUniverse claims that there will be an AI enhancement mode for the 108MP camera, which will help extract detail from the high-resolution sensor, one that will also help increase the color and brightness of the image.

Ice Universe recently posted three photos of a supposed Galaxy S22 Ultra with a transparent case. The idea is that the photos came from a case creator, although we're not sure as Ice Universe didn't say where they got the images from.

The phone in question looks a lot like a Galaxy Note with a blocky design and flat top and bottom edges. It also has a P-shaped camera module, in which each lens is alone and flush with the back of the phone.

Finally, another advantage that the Galaxy S22 Ultra could have over its Standard and Plus siblings is that it was designed to have 1TB of onboard storage, which means it could challenge the iPhone 13 Pro. And the iPhone 13 Pro Max when it comes to significant amounts of storage. . Don't expect such a model to be cheap, because exceeding 512GB of storage, flagship smartphones can turn out to be very expensive.

For more information on the Galaxy S22 Ultra, check out our comparison between Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Ultra.

Samsung Galaxy S22 displays

A rumor from the Mauri QHD leaker, who has a pretty good track record with Samsung leaks, claims that Samsung is downsizing the displays on the Galaxy S22 range compared to the Galaxy S21; Ice Universe, another famous leaker shared the same. Our opinion is that this is a good thing and that the Galaxy S22 could save us from oversized phones.

The Galaxy S22 would measure 6.06 inches (compared to 6.2 inches for the S21); the S22 Plus would sport a 6.5-inch panel (compared to 6.7-inches), and the Galaxy S22 Ultra would be 6.81 inches (versus 6.9 inches).

Samsung will keep the same general screen shape for the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus, according to a leak showing the phone's screens or screen protectors. However, the Galaxy S22 Ultra appears to have square corners, again a sign of the phone's Galaxy Note-ification.

The S22 Plus's screen reduction was confirmed by a report from SlashGear.

In addition, Mauri QHD affirms that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will be equipped with LTPO technology, which means that it will be able to reduce the frequency of sound from 120 Hz to 1 Hz. Battery.

A more recent tip from the Galaxy S22 Ultra claims that the phone will have the brightest screen ever for a Galaxy phone. Given that the Galaxy S21 Ultra hits a brightness of 1,500 nits, we might expect the next-gen Ultra to surpass that, perhaps pushing towards 2,000 nits. And an increase in brightness can help deliver more attractive HDR and colors, ideal for watching movies and gaming.

In terms of product line, a report from The Elec claims that the 6.1-inch Galaxy S22 will see the highest production volume at 50-60%. Only 20% of the allocation would go to the 6.6-inch S22 Plus. The Galaxy S22 Ultra will apparently make up the remaining 20-30%.

Samsung Galaxy S22 cameras

It seems the Galaxy S22 and its Plus teammate are set to get improved main and telephoto rear cameras, at least according to the trusty Ice Universe.

Apparently, both phones will make use of a 50MP main camera, which could be equipped with a Samsung GN5 sensor that the company unveiled earlier in the year, and which has already been giving impressive results on the Google Pixel 6.

What about the zoom power? A rumor has it that the Galaxy S22 offers a 3X telephoto zoom lens with a resolution of 10MP. This would be an improvement over the previous 3x hybrid optical zoom.

Samsung is also reportedly testing the ability to record 8K video at 60 frames per second for the Galaxy S22. This would be an improvement over the Galaxy S21 Ultra, which maxes out at 24fps for 8K video. Of course, there are very few people who own 8K televisions, as they are prohibitively expensive. But this update would result in a more future-proof phone.

At the front, the Galaxy S22 range has been tipped to come with the same resolution sensors as its predecessors; so 10MP for the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus and 40MP for the Galaxy S22 Ultra. This may seem a bit disappointing, but there is a chance that some hardware changes will be made, such as wider openings. And it's very likely that Samsung has worked to improve image processing on the software side of its next-gen phones, hopefully reducing excess sharpening or excess anti-aliasing, as well as letting in more light and delivering consistent colors.

Samsung Galaxy S22 S Pen support

According to Ice Universe, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra could have a built-in S Pen and slot, which apparently makes it a Galaxy Note device. This progression would make sense, as Samsung offered S Pen support in the previous S21 Ultra but without a case.

Also, the design of the S22 Ultra could be similar to that of the Galaxy Note series, which could have a more boxy look with a wider aspect ratio. The latter would make sense so that there is more room to write.

We don't know if the Galaxy S22 or Galaxy S22 Plus would benefit from S Pen support.

Samsung Galaxy S22 specs and graphics

The main chip that powers the Galaxy S22 could be the newly introduced Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. In fact, a rumor that circulated before Qualcomm revealed its new chipset claimed that Samsung could be the company that would make the new Snapdragon chip.

A benchmark was discovered for a Galaxy S22 Plus using the next-gen Snapdragon chip. The results don't seem too attractive compared to currently available phones, but we imagine the scores will rise as Samsung makes some final adjustments to the phone before launch. For what it's worth, Qualcomm says the Kryo processor in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 is 20% faster than its predecessor with 30% more power savings. The Adreno GPU is said to increase speed by 30% and is 25% more efficient in terms of power consumption.

It is rumored that the Samsung Galaxy S22 could dramatically increase its graphics power, with a GPU based on AMD's RDNA 2 architecture, which underpins the PS5 and Xbox Series X. That is not to say that the Galaxy S22 will have the power of the latter. game consoles. But it could easily top the phones on our Best Gaming Phones list.

This rumor received further credit with a tip that Samsung is testing multiple configurations of a new Exynos 2200 chip that has AMD graphics. And the trusted leaker Ice Universe posted on Twitter supposed Wild Life results on a setup's performance; the results of the graphical benchmark showed a score of 8,134 points with an average FPS of 50.3. It is extremely impressive for an Android phone.

The Exynos 2200 chip can even support ray tracing. This has apparently been confirmed by Samsung via its Weibo account, but the post has since been removed. If necessary, it would make the S22 an amazing mobile gaming phone. Assuming game developers can create games that support it.

What is not clear is if any of these AMD technologies will be reserved for the Exynos 2200 processor from Samsung or if it will also find a place in the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1; Qualcomm certainly didn't mention it.

More recently, it was said that Samsung, which is running out of parts for the Exynos 2200 chip, will use the next-gen Snapdragon chip worldwide for the Galaxy S22. Not all leakers agree with this, but if it is the truth, for now, we will miss this Exynos chip enhanced by AMD.

This same leak also told us what memory versions there might be of the different S22 models. The Vanilla S22 and S22 Pro can use 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, while the S22 Ultra will have a choice of 12GB and 16GB of RAM, and 256GB and 512GB of storage.

Another tipster offers different storage options for the S22 models. The S22 and S22 Plus would be available in 128GB and 256GB versions at this rumor, while the S22 Ultra will also include a 512GB version. That's fewer options than the iPhone 13, which also offers an iPhone 13 Pro. 1TB max for people who want that much storage.

Meanwhile, Qualcomm said it plans to power 40-50% of Galaxy S devices in 2022, although it is unclear how many of those will be the Galaxy S22 compared to other phones.

Samsung recently announced the development of its new LDDR5X DRAM, an improved version of LPDDR5 found in flagship Android phones. This new memory promises to be faster and more efficient. And there is a possibility that it will appear on the Galaxy S22. It may not make it to production in time, but if it does, we could see the Galaxy S22 getting a bigger performance boost than its predecessor and potentially more chances to keep more apps in sleep mode in RAM.

Samsung Galaxy S22 battery and charging

Early rumors of the Galaxy S22 were all about charging - we've heard that Samsung could re-introduce more than 65W of fast charging with the Galaxy S22. This is courtesy of well-known leaker Ice Universe, who claims that Samsung is testing 25W, 45W, and 65W loads.

However, that may not be the case now, as a new listing related to the Galaxy S22 range seen on the website of China's tech regulator 3C, has the next flagship phone set to continue charging. 25W of its predecessor. This could be a huge disappointment, given the rumors above and the fact that Samsung lags behind Oppo and OnePlus when it comes to charging speeds and power.

However, the Galaxy S22 could get 25W wireless charging, which offers a notable improvement over the 15W charging that the Galaxy S21 range has. That would mean faster load times, though it might also require you to get specific support; That's nothing new, as other phones with high-power chargers need proprietary docks.

Ice Universe has other details about the possible batteries for the Galaxy S22. The leaker claims that the Galaxy S22 will offer a 3,800 mAh power pack, while the Galaxy S22 Plus will use a 4,600 mAh battery; both figures represent 200 mAh degradations. The Galaxy S22 Ultra is expected to retain the 5,000 mAh size of its predecessor.

However, a new listing purportedly from 3C Certification, China's compliance service for electrical products, has shown what are believed to be the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra with smaller battery capacities than their predecessors.

The Galaxy S22 Plus could have a 4,370 mAh battery and the Galaxy S22 Ultra could have a 4,855 mAh battery capacity. That means the batteries can be even smaller than Ice Universe claims. These reported battery sizes contradict another report from the Dutch website GalaxyClub, which claims that the S22 Plus will have a 4,500 mAh battery. Either way, the trend is down.

The above has been further credited by a new rumor that the Samsung Galaxy S22 might have a smaller battery than the Galaxy S21. This titdbit claims that the Galaxy S22 will have a battery with a nominal capacity of 3590 mAh, which is not a great capacity by the standards of 2021 and much less for 2022. A certification published in Safety Korea also corroborated this rumor, after publishing a battery that is supposedly from the Galaxy S22. . That battery had a total capacity of 3,700 mAh and a usable capacity of 3,590 mAh.

However, we have no way of verifying this information. And Samsung may have prioritized battery optimization over the ability to deliver solid battery life overall.

With a lot of time between now and the launch of the S22, we have a list of features that we hope Samsung will incorporate.

A true full-screen design - rumored to be coming true, so not a big question. We'd like to see a full-screen design for the Galaxy S22 with a front-facing camera that disappears when you don't need it. We'd also like to be able to use apps in full-screen mode without having to dig into settings as you do now with some apps and games.

A sharper display: Samsung lowered the resolution of the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus from quad HD to 1080p, likely in an effort to save costs. But it would be nice if this time the sharper resolution weren't an exclusive feature of the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

S Pen support for all Galaxy S22s: Right now, only the Galaxy S21 Ultra supports the S Pen as an option, while the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Plus do not. So if Samsung is serious about adding S Pen support to more devices, it would be welcome to provide a digitizer for all three Galaxy S22 models.

Faster Charging (Even If It's Not In The Box): After offering a 45W charger option on the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Samsung moved away from that edge for the Galaxy S21 lineup. However, a leak points to Samsung launching a 65W charger, and we hope it will be compatible with the Galaxy S22 lineup.

Longer Battery Life: The Galaxy S21's battery life wasn't bad, but it could be better. In Tom's Guide's battery test, the regular Galaxy S21 lasted for 9 hours and 53 minutes when surfing the web via 5G, but it dropped to 6:31 with adaptive display mode turned on.

The Galaxy S21 Ultra fared better, as it lasted 11 hours and 25 minutes in 60Hz mode and 10:07 in adaptive mode. Note that the adaptive display on the S21 Ultra is more dynamic as it can be lowered to 10Hz, as opposed to 48Hz on the S21 and S21 Plus. So it would be nice if Samsung graced the S22 and S22 Plus with the same refresh rate range as the Ultra for its upcoming phones.

Better Cooling: Some users and reviewers of the Galaxy S21 have complained that the Galaxy S22 can run quite hot under heavy workloads or when gaming for longer periods. So it would be nice to see a better cooling solution for the Galaxy S22.

Bring back microSD: The Galaxy S21 saw the removal of the microSD card slot, much to the chagrin of many users and fans. While Samsung did not provide a rationale for this, we hope it has something to do with keeping the costs of the S21 low as much as possible. However, that doesn't mean we don't want expandable storage to return to the Galaxy S22. After all, Samsung was one of the last bastions of this feature in the flagship market.
