What we know about the Samsung Galaxy S22

Here, Ny Teknik gathers the most credible information about price, release date, specifications and functions before the launch of Samsung’s new mobile Galaxy S22.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 series was released in January 2021. New Technology reporter Peter Ottsjö has tested the Ultra version and written about it here. Insanely good camera, apparently.

But the Galaxy S21 is old news. We look forward – to the successor Samsung Galaxy S22. There is still quite a long time left until it is released. But rumors about the upcoming flagship phone (and the series) abound.

The phone itself will probably be launched in February 2022.

Galaxy S22 sin in video? (2022-01-10)

Not just one but THREE dummies of what are claimed to be Galaxy S22 models can be seen in a video created by the YouTuber Unbox Therapy (Lewis Hilsenteger).

Correction: WENT to see. Shortly after the video was published, it was downloaded.

Anyway, in the Unbox Therapy video you can see what is believed to be Galaxy S22 Ultra, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 (from left to right).

Earlier rumors claim that the S22 will come with one 6.1-inch screen, while the S22 Plus and S22 Ultra are said to have screen sizes on 6.55 inches and 6.8 inches, respectively.

Judging by the dummy in the Unbox Therapy video, the Galaxy S22 Ultra also looks to have a rectangular shape with sharp edges, which is reminiscent of previous Galaxy Note models. Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra, on the other hand, seem to have a different design with clearly rounded corners.

Galaxy S22 Ultra is rumored to have a camera system consisting of four cameras: a 108 MP main camera, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 10 MP (3x) telephoto lens and a 10 MP 10x periscope zoom.

The corresponding camera systems on the Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra are said to consist of a main camera of 50 MP, combined with ultra-wide angle and telephoto lenses.

Finally – it looks like Samsung is planning to increase the charging power of its upcoming flagship. And really! On Twitter, tech journalist Roland Quandt has posted on what he claims is a 45W charger for the S22 Ultra.

That would mean a substantial increase compared to the S21 Ultra, which “only” can be charged with 25W. It should be noted, however, that the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, launched in 2019, also managed 45W.

S22 Ultra can get macro mode (2021-12-20)

“The camera is the big star of the Galaxy S21 Ultra,” wrote Ny Teknik’s reviewer Peter Ottsjö at the beginning of the year.

Samsung is now charging ahead of the launch of the next flagship, the Galaxy S22 Ultra, which is expected to be launched in February 2022.

New image sensors?

The site Phone Arena writes that the next top model from the South Korean technology giant can get a set of cameras with the same number of megapixels as the S21 Ultra, but that the image quality will be taken to the next level with the help of updated hardware and software.

The main camera on the Samsung S22 Ultra will remain at 108 MP, but will get a new and improved image sensor. In addition, Samsung’s upcoming worsting can get two telephoto lenses (3x or 10x) with updated Sony sensors, as well as a wide-angle lens of 12 MP.

“Fantastic richness of detail”

Like its competitors, Samsung is investing heavily in improving image quality with the help of smart software. On Twitter, the well-known leak Ice Universe writes that Samsung has sharpened its ai algorithms, which in turn provides significantly better light intake, richness of detail and color reproduction in photos taken with the Galaxy S22 Ultra.

In addition, information in the South Korean media claims that Samsung’s upcoming worsting will have a macro mode for close-ups. Features, called “Detail enhancer”, use the 108 MP main camera.

This opens up the possibility that the macro finesse can also appear on the Galaxy S21 Ultra via a future software update, Phone Arena writes.

Leak shows S22 Ultra with built-in stylus (2021-11-08)

New pictures seem to confirm what we have long speculated about. Samsung takes the stylus from the Note series and builds it into the upcoming flagship Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The news is signed by the well-known the leak Jon Prosser on the site Front Page Tech. He has published a number of photos of what is claimed to be the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra.

The biggest news is that the phone has Samsung’s stylus S-Pen built-in. The pen can be folded out from the bottom of the phone, just like on the now dormant Galaxy Note series.

To make room with the pen, the phone seems to be very thick. The other clear difference in design is that the camera body is not located in a protruding tubercle on the back of the phone, the lenses are located directly on the back of the phone.

The camera system appears to consist of:

  • 108MP main camera
  • 12MP ultravidvinkel
  • 10MP 3X telephoto lens
  • 10MP 10X telephoto lens

Is this Galaxy S22 Ultra? (2021-10-25)

Twitter user Ice Universe thinks it knows what Samsung’s next flagship phone will look like.

In its latest post, the account has republished a series of computer-rendered images that are said to showcase the upcoming Galaxy S22 Ultra in all its glory. Judging from the pictures, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra seems to have even thinner screen edges, as well as a stylus pen similar to the one that has previously been delivered with the Galaxy Note mobiles. On the back you can see a whole set of camera sensors.

In a previous post published recently, Ice Universe claims that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a 5000 mAh battery, with support for 45W fast charging. This means that the phone can be charged to 70 percent in 35 minutes, the Twitter user claims.

Samsung has not announced an official date for the next Unpacked event yet, but the Galaxy S22 Ultra and Galaxy S22 will probably be launched in early 2022.

Galaxy S22 Ultra can be the new Galaxy Note? (2021-09-24)

Samsung announced earlier this year that the Galaxy Note series, the one with the built-in stylus, has been put on ice due to the semiconductor shortage. But now there is information that indicates that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will take over the baton. Or at least the stylus stick.

The Twitter account Ice Universe, which is behind many high-profile leaks from the mobile giants, writes in a cryptic post that the Note series has done its thing, but that “S will be Note”. It reports Android Central.

This year’s worst S21 Ultra already supports Samsung’s stylus, but lacks several of the features that the Note series has. In addition, there is no built-in space for the pen. You can carry it beautifully around in your pocket, or buy a special shell where it can be attached. Could this latest leak indicate that the S21 Ultra will have an integrated stylus like the Note?

The account also indicates that the S-Series will go from its rounded design to a more angular variant, but not quite as square as the Note 20.

Galaxy S22 may be smaller than Iphone 13 (2021-09-21)

Previous preliminary information that Samsung may shrink the next top model is now backed up by a leak with the pseudonym Ice Universe. On Twitter, Ice Universe writes that the Galaxy S22’s screen size of 6 inches makes it “slightly smaller than the Iphone 13”, which Apple launched last week.

Ice Universe has also posted a picture that compares the size between the S22, S22 Plus and S22 Ultra – provided that the rumors are true.

The same source also claims that the Samsung S22 will have a battery capacity of “only” 3700 mAh, which can be compared with 4,000 mAh as this year’s top model Galaxy S21.

However, a smaller battery can possibly be compensated by energy optimizations in the software, or that the screen on the S22 also seems to be smaller than on previous flagships.

Specifications, screens and camera (2021-06-16)

Smaller screens

Among other things, Techradar writes that the screens in the Galaxy S22 series will be smaller. Only the porky Ultra version will be slightly larger than its predecessor. Reference is made to the famous delicious Mauri QHD on Twitter.

If you compare with S21 (6.2 inches) and S21 Plus (6.7 inches) then S22 will be 6.05 and S22 Plus 6.55 inches.

Mauri also writes on Twitter that the Galaxy S22 Ultra is the only model in the series that gets LPTO. Thus, a technology that allows you to create low-temperature polycrystalline silica glass. In short, a maxed out and detailed screen. Improved pixel management and energy savings are also to be expected.

Stingy on material

If you are aiming for the next generation Galaxy and prefer glass as the material on the back of your phone, well, then it’s the worst model Ultra you should wait for. According to GSM Arena it is only the one who gets glass. Ordinary S22 and Plus may be said to be encapsulated in plastic.

Even though it will be plastic, it must be processed to give a “premium feeling”.

Galaxy S22 – processor and specifications

Specifications, cool!

The new 4n chip Snapdragon 895 is claimed to be the chip that hides under the shell of the Galaxy S22. That or the next generation Exynos chip.

In terms of frame, it is quite likely that the Galaxy S22 will come with 8 GB of frame, just like its predecessor. The S22 series will in all probability be 5g compatible. The battery capacity is expected to be at least 4000 mAh – with support for fast charging. But no charger is included in the box (cord only), Samsung has confirmed. This is where they turn their backs on the main rival Apple, which stopped offering chargers with the Iphone 12 series.

The camera then?

When Ny Teknik’s reporter tested the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, he became very fond of the camera.

“A sensational mobile camera. That was already the case last year, but then the conversation was dominated by all the flaws that Samsung did not have time to straighten out before the premiere. This year we can focus on the still exceptional 108 megapixel sensor that captures images that, at least in daylight, retain their razor-sharp sharpness almost no matter how much you crop them, ”wrote Peter Ottsjö then.

With the Galaxy S22, Samsung is unlikely to take any steps back. Among other things, it is rumored that Samsung is working on a 200 megapixel sensor that may very well land in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. Other rumors claim that Samsung is looking at sensor-based image stabilization, similar to the one Apple has in its Iphone 12 Pro Max.

The zoom that was so sharp in the Galaxy S21 Ultra looks to take several steps forward in the Galaxy S22. Samsung is said to have developed a periscope zoom that provides fully movable lenses. Jaha? Well, that means you do not have to use electronic zoom to not lose image quality. In short, you should use the same technology as lenses for system cameras.

Another loose rumor claims that the selfie camera will be under the screen. But we’ve heard it before, haven’t we?

We can probably count on the Ultra version to include a more advanced camera system than its smaller sibling mobiles.

Release date and price Galaxy S22

It is too early to say when the Samsung Galaxy S22 will be released. But we can make qualified guesses.

The predecessor Galaxy S21 was launched in January 2021 during a Galaxy Unpacked event. Earlier versions were launched in February, and will be released next month. As long as the global semiconductor shortage does not make up for it too much, the launch month of January or February 2022 feels reasonable.

If the Galaxy S22 series will match the S21 series in price, the beefiest ultra variant will cost around SEK 15,990. The thinnest Galaxy S22 variant is expected to cost around SEK 10,000.
