The Galaxy S22 family is undoubtedly on the horizon, though, as per the latest insider info, the launch is now pushed back, in favor of a speedier release of the overdue Galaxy S21 FE in January. In the meantime, leaks have continued to pour in, though mostly non-official renders, based on early info. Actual live photos of design elements, like the recent S22 Ultra dummy unit have been few and far between. A new leak, courtesy of reputable source Ice universe, claims to reveal the front design of the upcoming Galaxy S22 and S22+.
These are not actually display glass modules, though, but rather tempered glass protectors, meant for the upcoming phones. A fairly standard way to get early device leaks, since major case and other accessory makers do tend to get overall dimensions and layout for smartphones early.
It seems that the S22 generation will be a bit wider and less “skinny and tall” than the current S21 one. The edges look slightly rounder, as well. Bezels are minimal all around and appear to be symmetrical on all sides. Though, it should be noted that screen protectors can sometimes be a bit deceiving in terms of bezel proportions.
To recap some earlier S22 rumors, all three models are likely to feature a conventional punch hole selfie, rather than an under display one, with a 6.1-inch display on the regular S22 and a 6.6-inch one on the S22+. We are still not sure about the S22 Ultra’s diagonal. Speaking of cameras, the S22 and S22+ are likely to get an upgraded main snapper – Samsung’s ISOCELL GN5 – a 50MP sensor with all-directional autofocus and big 1.0µm pixels.
Previously leaked renders of alleged Galaxy S22 Ultra with S Pen slot
For internals, we expect international units to rock an Exynos 2200, rumored to feature an AMD-made GPU, whereas Chinese and US ones should be running the upcoming Qualcomm flagship offer. As per a recent 3C certification, all three handsets might stick to 25W charging for yet another generation. And as far as we currently know, the S21 will have a smaller 3,700 mAh battery, so will the S22+, with an alleged 4,500 mAh pack. Only the Ultra might get the same 5,000 mAh of its predecessor, despite allegedly fitting an S Pen inside its body.
