The Korean manufacturer Samsung is a true giant of mobile telephony. It is famous for the quality of its devices and the excitement preceding each new release. The Samsung Galaxy s22 range is no exception to this rule, creating a veritable rain of leaks and theories. In this article, we present you the new jewel of Samsung with all the information available about it.
THE RELEASE DATE OF S22
The phones in the Samsung Galaxy s22 line have not yet been released, but according to reports, the brand will officially present them on February 9, 2022 . Based on our analysis of this date, the first models will be available on the 24th of the same month for people who have made a pre-order. Samsung’s ranges generally come in 3 types of phones, you can expect an s22, an s22 Plus and an s22 Ultra.
AN ULTRA THIN SHELL TO RESPECT THE DESIGN OF THE SAMSUNG S22
It is one of the main components of a phone. Serving both as skin and protection, the shell plays a role that is both practical and aesthetic . Dozens of sites already offer models of shells with a sleek design. Nevertheless, it is impossible to offer a real appreciation without first releasing an official design. It will therefore be necessary to wait a little longer to afford this smartphone and obtain a shell for the Samsung S22 perfectly adapted to the device.
The announcement of the release of the Samsung Galaxy S22 caused a real stir within the community. This is why many leakers have looked into the case, attacking the slightest leak of information. Thanks to their research, we know that the design of the s22 is rather similar to that of its predecessor . Thus, both models will have rounded corners, thin borders as well as a central selfie camera.
However, some changes will be noted on the back of the phone. Following the mixed opinions of the public concerning the “glassic”, an experimental material similar to both glass and plastic, the brand decided to return to a more classic model. Thus, the surface will therefore be made of glass and the protection of the camera will be reinforced .
SAMSUNG GALAXY S22: THE S PEN
This is one of the most teased features of the Samsung Galaxy S22. A Dutch site, famous for the reliability of its leaks, claims the addition of an S Pen to Samsung’s new jewel. It’s a kind of mini pen allowing you to scroll, select files and perform all kinds of operations on the touch screen. It is much more practical than the finger in terms of precision and brings a touch of elegance to each click. This theory is based on leaked sketches of the S22 and some clues left by the brand.
Also according to rumors, the brand would have planned the addition of an S Pen detector . It is a component located at the bottom of the space reserved for the stylus and capable of identifying it in the event of contact.
THE PRICE OF THE SMARTPHONE
The Samsung Galaxy s22, s22 plus and s22 ultra should be presented with quite varied colors and storage options. Thus, we observe notable differences in terms of tariffs.
THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S22
It will be available in rose gold, green, black and white . In terms of capacity, at least two configurations are to be expected: that of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB which should cost 849 € and that of 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB which should cost 899 €. The price of the Samsung Galaxy s22 is therefore similar to that of the previous generation.
THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S22 PLUS
This phone will be sold with the same colors and the same configurations as the Samsung Galaxy S22. It will be available in 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage at €1049 and in 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage at €1099. In terms of cost, the similarity with the s21 Plus is obvious.
THE SAMSUNG GALAXY S22 ULTRA
It will be offered in three colors: dark red, black and white. According to some sources, it would be available in four configurations . The first is 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, the second version of 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage, the third of 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage and the hypothetical fourth of 16 GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.
When it comes to pricing, it costs more than its predecessors. Indeed, the s22 Ultra (8 GB of RAM / 256 GB of storage) will be available at 1249 €, the s22 Ultra (12 GB of RAM / 256 GB of storage) will cost 1349 € and the price of the s22 Ultra (12 GB of RAM/512 GB of storage) will amount to 1449 €. This is probably due to the scarcity of manufacturing materials .
THE AUTONOMY OF THE GALAXY S22
Just like the s21 Ultra, the Galaxy s22 Ultra is expected to come with a 5000mAh battery . However, the S22 and S22+ models will be equipped with 3700 and 4600 mAh batteries respectively. It’s a real downfall considering the autonomy of the s21 and the s21+ (4000 and 4800 mA h). Fortunately, wired charging technology has seen a real boost in recent years. The time required to recharge an s22 is therefore extremely short.
SAMSUNG S22 CAMERA
The camera part of Samsung phones gets a little better with each generation. Thus, the Galaxy s22 and s22 Plus should have a 50-megapixel main sensor instead of the 12-megapixel one seen on their predecessor.
It could also be that a 12-megapixel x3 optical zoom makes its entry, thus decreeing the disappearance of the secondary 64-megapixel sensor. This new feature promises to be versatile and will certainly improve the definition of the main sensor.
For the Samsung Galaxy s22 Ultra, leakers and the media often contradict each other. For some, we should not expect any new hardware with regard to the Samsung Galaxy s21 Ultra. However, there could be a small improvement in software processing, considering Samsung’s investments in affiliate algorithms.
Others claim that the Ultra’s x3 and x10 telephoto lenses could go up from 10 to 12 megapixels. Future users would therefore be entitled to a better definition . This source even goes so far as to mention a variable zoom lens. This would be a big step forward, since the zooms currently available on the market are fixed.
