The Samsung Galaxy S22 series is far from a global debut, but, much like previous instances, the device has already been subject to multiple leaks and rumours.
The entire lineup will likely launch in January of 2022 and, ahead of this, leaks and rumours are in full force. Today, Galaxy Club, a reliable Dutch news outlet have gotten information in relation to the colour hues for the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra.
What Colour Variants Will the S22 Series Come In?
First and foremost is the Samsung Galaxy S22 and the Samsung Galaxy S22 Plus, which are tipped to come in a couple of hues, with the rumour listing the options as white, black, rose gold and green. This means the violet hue will most likely not return for 2022.
In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will come in three hues, namely dark red, white and black. The dark red option seems very intriguing since a similar hue has come for the Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus, S20FE and the S10e, although they were red and not dark red.
The outlet does state that this could change from now until launch, so there is still hope for something new or unique coming, instead of the rather bland hues.
What Do We Know about the Device?
In other Samsung Galaxy S22 news, a potential Samsung Galaxy S22 model with Qualcomm Snapdragon 895 or Snapdragon 898 has arrived on the Geekbench benchmarking website.
The device carries the model number SM-S901U. The Geekbench listing does not specifically state that it is the Galaxy S22. However, earlier reports claim that the aforesaid model number alludes to the base variant of the upcoming Samsung series of smartphones.
The “U” in the model number SM-S901U implies that the unit listed on Geekbench is a US variant. Moreover, the device seems to be drawing its power from the next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon flagship processor.
This could be the Snapdragon 895, or the Snapdragon 898 chipset. The chip seems to make use of four efficiency cores that clock at 1.79GHz. Aside from that, it seems to have three mid-cores, clocking at 2.5GHz, and one peak performance core that clocks at 3GHz.
The aforesaid configuration is similar to what Qualcomm usually employs for its flagship chipsets. The device has scored 475 points and 1,393 points in the single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. The scores coincide with scores that are common with most budget-range smartphones.
