Samsung seems set to announce the Samsung Galaxy S22 series in February of 2022, a month after the rumored launch of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE, with the former likely to feature three models, namely the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and S22 Ultra.
Now, it looks like the company might finally be working on this approach, since it seems that more markets will now get the Snapdragon variant instead of the Exynos variant, which, in the last few years has been a step or two behind its rival.
Samsung to Finally Bring Snapdragon Chips to Asian and African Markets
Whilst rumors have been doing the rounds, suggesting that Samsung will be launching the Snapdragon-powered S22 models in all parts of the world, skipping Exynos entirely, Max Weinbach from Android Police has confirmed that there will still be certain regions set to receive the Exynos chips. Weinbach has seen both the Exynos 2200 and Snapdragon 898 SoC versions of the Galaxy S22 series.
He fails to mention which variants will be available in the different regions, but he does add that the Asian and African markets will get the Snapdragon variant instead of the Exynos variant, in line with a previous leak by Galaxyclub.

What this means is that the Samsung Galaxy S22 series in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world will receive the Exynos SoCs, while markets like Asia, Africa and the US wll receive the Snapdragon variant.
What Else Do We Know About the Galaxy S22 Series?
It is interesting to note that this means that this will be the first instance of Asia and Africa receiving separate variants of all three smartphones with different model numbers (SM-S901E, SM-S906E, and SM-S908E).
In other news, now, it seems that the company’s biggest rival Samsung has taken it upon itself to take shots at Apple with an offer from the company, with Galaxy Club spotting a promotion in the Samsung members app that is giving away a free cleaning cloth to the first 1,000 people signing up for this offer.
The screenshot from the outlet shows that the cleaning cloth measures 20cm x 20cm, which means it is larger than the Apple offering. This is not the first instance of Samsung taking shots at Apple, with the company trolling Apple at times for removing the headphone jack from the iPhone 7 and the notch.
