Samsung Galaxy S22: Nearly all technical specifications have leaked ahead of February 9 launch
There is still more than a week left before the official launch of the Samsung Galaxy S22 series. But, thanks to reliable leak sources, tech fans do not have to wait to know almost all the technical specifications of the three upcoming flagship phones.
Tech fans have already seen plenty of renders and details about the Galaxy S22 that leaked over the past several months. The leaks do not stop even if the launch event is happening soon. This time, WinFuture has reported the “exclusive” information on the devices’ specs along with “official images” of the three-device lineup.
Cameras are some of the most crucial components buyers consider in purchasing premium phones. On paper, though, the Galaxy S22 cameras do not look that much different from Galaxy S21 phones. The standard Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ have the same sensors, including a 50MP main camera, 12MP ultra-wide sensor, and 10MP telephoto lens.
The Galaxy S22 Ultra is not joining the premium phones that would adopt a whopping 200MP lens this year. Its sensors also appear similar to its predecessor’s, which reportedly include a 108MP primary sensor, 12MP ultra-wide angle camera, and two 10MP telephoto lenses.
The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will also use the same front camera with a 10MP capacity and f/2.2 aperture. Galaxy S22 Ultra’s selfie shutter is, unsurprisingly, superior with a 40MP sensor.
The regular Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22+ will be available with 8GB RAM only, but it has 128GB and 256GB storage options. There are more variations for the Galaxy S22 Ultra, including 8GB and 12GB RAM, along with 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB storage options.
Samsung is anticipated to unveil its Exynos 2200 chip at the same event as the Galaxy S22 series. The new APU is expected to power the phone units shipping to European markets, while Samsung is likely to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for phones to be sold in the United States.
All Galaxy S22 models will use the same Dynamic AMOLED 2x panel and are protected by Gorilla Glass Victus. The Galaxy S22 (6.1-inch) and Galaxy S22+ (6.6-inch) screens have 2340 x 1080 resolution and a 10-120Hz refresh rate. The Galaxy S22 Ultra’s screen will deliver 3080 x 1440 resolution and a 1-120Hz refresh rate.
The battery department is another area where the three Galaxy S22 models will have different capacities -- 3700mAh on Galaxy S22, 4500mAh on Galaxy S22+, and 5000mAh on Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Samsung has already confirmed that the Galaxy S22 series will be unveiled on Wednesday, Feb. 9. But it might not arrive in stores until a couple of weeks later.
