BIG Samsung announcements in February, Galaxy S22 Ultra teased
Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event in February set to reveal the Galaxy S22 Ultra, as hinted by teaser video.
Samsung has announced the Galaxy Unpacked event for February, hinting at the fusion of the Galaxy Note and Galaxy S lineup. This isn't a new thing given that the Galaxy S21 Ultra had already adopted the S Pen in an unusual way last year. However, based on the leaks this year, Samsung could actually bring back the Galaxy Note in the form of its ultimate Galaxy S variant, complete with the S Pen resting inside.
In an official release, Samsung's Dr. TM Roh says, “At Unpacked in February 2022, we'll introduce you to the most noteworthy S series device we've ever created. The next generation of Galaxy S is here, bringing together the greatest experiences of our Samsung Galaxy into one ultimate device.” And in the footer, he ends up confirming that it will carry the Ultra moniker.
Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra teased for February launch
The Galaxy S22 Ultra leaks have revealed what mostly looks like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in many ways. Leaked renders have revealed a rectangular design that the Galaxy Note 8 popularised as the Note lineup's identity. Unlike the Galaxy S21 Ultra that required its S Pen to be tucked away separately in a case, the S22 Ultra is said to have the S Pen stylus inside.
With Samsung recently announcing its Exynos 2200 chip, it seems the Galaxy S22 Ultra is shaping up to be another full-blown flagship set to take on the Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max. However, some markets are expected to get the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip; India could possibly get the Snapdragon variant this year.
The leaks have also revealed the regular Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus launching alongside the Ultra variant. These models aren't expected to be a drastic upgrade from the Galaxy S21 lineup. The renders have revealed a design strikingly similar to the Galaxy S21, although Samsung could ditch the dual tone paintjob.
Earlier in the year, Samsung also announced its Galaxy S21 FE in several markets, including India. Starting at Rs. 54,990, the Galaxy S21 FE is essentially a cut-price Galaxy S21 Plus. We reviewed it and were left impressed with its great display, a well-tuned Exynos 2100 chip for a good performance, nice cameras and an overall polished user experience.
