Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable smartphones last week, so the focus is now on the upcoming 2022 flagships, the Galaxy S22. Despite the fact that before their announcement is still at best 4-5 months, the well-known Ice Universe insider has already revealed the main characteristics of all three models.
It looks like Samsung has decided to reposition itself and make the base Galaxy S22 a compact flagship to compete with the iPhone 12 mini and most likely the iPhone 13 mini. While the Galaxy S21 has a 6.2-inch screen, the Galaxy S22 will have an even smaller 6.01-inch screen. If confirmed, the smartphone will be the smallest Galaxy S device since the 2019 Galaxy S10e.
At the same time, the Galaxy S22 + should get a 6.55-inch display, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will have a 6.81-inch display. For comparison, the S21 + has 6.7 inches, the S21 Ultra has 6.8 inches. That is, the Galaxy S22 + will also become more compact compared to its predecessor.
Unfortunately, not only screens will become smaller, but also batteries. The S22 and S22 + will have 3800mAh and 4000mAh batteries respectively, while the S22 Ultra will retain a 5000mAh battery. There is no information on the charging speed yet.
All three models should get 120Hz refresh rates, but only the Galaxy S22 Ultra will boast QHD + resolution and an LTPO panel that dynamically changes the refresh rate.
In terms of cameras, the Galaxy S22 and S22 + are expected to use all-new 50MP 1 / 1.55-inch primary sensors, as well as a 12MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom and a 12MP ultra-wide camera. The S22 Ultra, on the other hand, will have a 108MP main camera and three additional 12MP sensors – a 3x optical zoom telephoto, a 10x optical zoom periscope, and an ultra-wide lens.
Recall that sources also report that most of the Samsung Galaxy S22 flagships will receive Snapdragon 898 processors instead of Exynos 2200.
