Let's take a look at the Samsung Galaxy S22 series specs and other details available ahead of the launch.


Samsung recently got done with the Galaxy Z series launch where it unveiled the Z Fold 3 and the Z Flip 3. The company’s next flagship smartphone series will be the Galaxy S22 series. Samsung could unveil its Galaxy S-series flagship phones in January or February 2022. We are months away from the official launch of the next Galaxy phone. Meanwhile, some key details of the upcoming Samsung smartphones have leaked. According to a new report, Samsung might launch its Galaxy S22 series in India with a Snapdragon 898 SoC. 

Tipster Tron, citing a Clien report, stated that Samsung is likely to launch the Galaxy S22 series with the next Snapdragon 8-series flagship processor. Dubbed Snapdragon 898 SoC, the processor will be used in flagship devices next year. Samsung has been launching its premium Galaxy S-series phones with its in-house Exynos chipsets. The current-generation Galaxy S21 series also features the Exynos 2100 SoC. Although powerful, the Exynos chips aren’t as powerful and efficient as Qualcomm Snapdragon chips. 

Going forward, things could change. The report states that Samsung is experiencing issues with the initial yield of the Exynos 220 SoC. Therefore, the company is considering reducing the volume of Exynos 2200 SoC. It further states that Qualcomm has already proposed a unit price cut.

According to the report, India and other South-East Asian regions will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Galaxy S22 series. Korea, Hong Kong, and North American regions are also likely to get the Snapdragon 898-powered Galaxy S22 phones. Other regions like Europe, South America, etc are likely to get the Exynos 2200 SoC variant. 

Samsung is yet to take the final call, which is likely to be confirmed when it gets closer to the launch. The upcoming Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus are rumoured to feature a 50MP primary camera, a 12MP ultrawide, and a 12MP telephoto camera with 3x zoom. The Ultra model could feature the newly unveiled 200MP ISOCELL HP1 camera sensor.
