As the date of the unveiling of Samsung’s new flagship models from the Galaxy S22 series approaches, more and more information is leaking out about both their upcoming form and possible specifications. Among the latest speculations, for example, is the news that Samsung will only use Qualcomm’s chipset in the most feature-packed S22 Ultra model.
Now the well-known 91Mobiles server has published official renders of the Galaxy S22+, which come from leaker Ishan Agarwal. The new model is expected to look similar to the base variant of the Galaxy S22, with only minor differences in terms of specs.
The Samsung Galaxy S22+ resembles the current Galaxy S21 and S21+ models in many ways – the front is dominated by a display with a small cutout for the selfie camera and thin bezels, while the back still features a prominent photo module in the top left corner with a trio of cameras. The major differences should be in the materials used – while the Galaxy S21 series relies on a polycarbonate body, the Galaxy S22+ is said to rely on a metal back, according to Agarwal.
Apart from the images, Agarwal also posted speculations regarding the specs of the Galaxy S22+. According to him, the Galaxy S22+ – at least in the UK – will get an Exynos 2200 chipset, a 50Mpx main camera with adaptive pixels and the ability to record images in 12-bit colour depth, a display with a maximum brightness of 1700 nits or a 4500 mAh battery with 45W charging support. Agarwal also mentions the weight of all three models – he says the Galaxy S22 will be the lightest at 167 grams, the Galaxy S22+ will reportedly weigh 195 grams and he estimates the weight of the Galaxy S22 Ultra at 228 grams.
When is the official unveiling of the Samsung S22?
Some of the information provided by Agarwal contradicts previous leaks, so this information should be taken with a grain of salt. We will get to know the truth when the Galaxy S22 series is unveiled, which is likely to take place in February this year. Currently, the date of February 9 is being speculated, with sales starting on February 25.
