Samsung’s flagship mobile phone Galaxy S21 series was officially released in January this year. This series comes with Qualcomm’s flagship, Snapdragon 888, and Samsung’s self-developed Exynos 2100 processor. It has the Samsung Galaxy S21, S21+, and S21 Ultra, all with a 120Hz refresh rate. According to recent reports from Sammobile, the Galaxy S22 is on its way. The report shows that this series will still have three models like its predecessor.
However, the screen sizes will remain different like the Galaxy S21 series. The Samsung Galaxy S22 standard model will come with a 6.06 – 6.1 inch display. However, the Galaxy S22+ will use a 6.5 – 6.6 inch screen while the flagship model, S22 Ultra, will have a 6.8 inches screen. The screen size of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ will be smaller than those currently on sale. Nevertheless, the Ultra version will not change. Furthermore, the report also shows that the Galaxy S22 Ultra will come with an OLED display that uses LTPO technology.
The current Galaxy S21 Ultra uses an Infinity-O screen with a resolution of 3200 × 1440. This display is HDR10+ certified and supports an adaptive refresh rate of 10 – 120Hz. However, the Galaxy S22 series is expected to use a lower refresh rate and reduce energy consumption.
Looking at the leak, this is only a section of the major specification of this series. There is much more information that we do not have for now. As for the on-screen camera technology, this feature is not ready for Samsung and will not come with the Galaxy S22.
Samsung Galaxy S22 will not use the 3D ToF sensor
After the launch of the Galaxy S21 series, we had the official confirmation that the company did not use the 3D ToF sensor. Samsung has high regard for this sensor and it has been present in many of its flagships like the Galaxy S10 5G and the Galaxy S20 Ultra. The latter had huge issues with the auto-focus, and Samsung decided to revamp its auto-focus system. The company ditched the 3D ToF sensor in favor of a simple Laser Auto Focus system within the Galaxy Note20 Ultra. Since the change didn’t negatively impact user experience, the company decided to stick with the new approach.
Well, for those who are expecting the 3D ToF sensor to return with the Galaxy S22, this will probably not happen. According to industry insiders, Samsung thought about bringing the ToF sensor back after Apple included one on the iPhone 12 Pro. However, after consideration and checking consumer feedback, the company decided to stick with the Laser Auto-Focus system.
