South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, will officially commence mass production of parts for the Galaxy S22 in November. Looking at the schedule and previous practices, this flagship series will officially arrive in January 2022. We know that each generation of the Galaxy S series will be the first flagship to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series flagship processors. Although the Galaxy S22 may not be the first, it will be one of the earliest to use this chip. The next-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series flagship chip, Snapdragon 898, will probably launch at the end of 2021.
In addition, the Samsung Galaxy S22 series will be available in some markets with its Exynos 2200 chip, which integrates AMD GPU. From the reports so far, the performance of this chip will lock horns with the Snapdragon 898 SoC. Furthermore, the Samsung Exynos 2200 will use its RDNA2 graphics micro-architecture, which is the technology used in PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and AMD Radeon RX graphics cards.
Other reports claim that the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra still uses a 108MP main camera. However, it will come with a periscope telephoto and ultra-wide-angle lens. This speculation implies that the company will not bring any upgrade in the camera department of this new flagship.
Samsung Galaxy S22 series speculations
Previous reports show that the Galaxy S22 series will continue the three size models of the previous generation. The standard version will use a 6.06 inches display while the Galaxy S22+ will come with a 6.55 inches screen. In addition, the flagship Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will use a 6.81-inch display. All the screens will support a 120Hz high refresh rate. Furthermore, there are reports that Samsung will further expand the application of plastic models. Only the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will use a glass back cover. The Galaxy S22/S22+ will all use a plastic back cover.
In the camera department, the reports so far claim that the Galaxy S22/S22+ will use a 50MP 1/1.55 main camera, 12MP ultra-wide angle, 12MP sensor 3X optical zoom. However, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will use a 108MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide-angle, 12MP 3X optical variable sensor, and a 12MP 10X optical variable sensor. At the same time, Samsung will also work with Olympus to tune this powerful camera solution. With Olympus, the performance of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra should be overwhelming. Many Samsung fans will expect this device to seamlessly top the DxOMark ranking when it arrives.
