Over the past few days, there have been a couple of reports regarding the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S22 series. According to earlier reports, the Samsung Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will have smaller displays than the S21 and S21+. However, the Galaxy S22 Ultra will retain the same display size as the Galaxy S21 Ultra. Today, a South Korean leakster said in a blog post that only the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra model uses a glass back cover. According to the report, the back cover of the Galaxy S22 and S22+ will use a brand-new processing technology. In any case, it is made of plastic instead of glass.
As of now, we can not ascertain the authenticity of this report, thus, it is better to take it with a grain of salt. However, if we compare the reports so far, it is clear that Samsung is trying to widen the gap between the regular / Plus version and the Ultra model. It appears that the South Korean manufacturer wants the Ultra version to stand out. If the Plus model is very close to the expensive Ultra version, it’s bad for marketing. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra is a perfect example. The Xiaomi Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro are nowhere near the Mi 11 Ultra in terms of features.
Presently, the Samsung Galaxy S21 comes with a plastic rear. However, the Galaxy S21+ and S21 Ultra come with the same Corning Gorilla Victus glass as the phone screen. The marketing strategy here is that the plastic rear will reduce the cost of the Galaxy S22+. With this, there will be a clear distinction between the Galaxy S22+ and the S22 Ultra. Users who would have bought the S22+ but have enough cash will probably go for the “sleeker” Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra. However, those with a shallow pocket will just stick with the Galaxy S22 or S22+.
In the fourth quarter of this year,m we expect to get more information about this new flagship 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 Galaxy S22 Ultra will come with an OLED display that uses LTPO technology.
