Samsung is gearing to release Snapdragon-powered editions of the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus in China and the US. The pair, along with the Galaxy S22 Note, have also appeared in more hands-on photos. All photos appear to be of dummy units.

Earlier today, we reported that Ice Universe had shared a prototype or a dummy unit of the Galaxy S22. Now, @heyitsyogesh has leaked two photos of the entire Galaxy S22 series in two colours. While neither Ice Universe or @heyitsyogesh state they are dummy units, the uniformity of their camera sensors confirms as much.

Incidentally, the SM-S901U and SM-S906U have appeared on Samsung China's website and at the FCC. Thought to be the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus respectively, previous leaks point to the pair featuring the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. The inclusion of Snapdragon SoCs in Chinese and US versions of Galaxy S smartphones is common, with Samsung usually reserving Exynos chipsets for Europe and South Korea.

The FCC also confirms that Samsung will release LED View cases for the entire Galaxy S22 series, not just the Galaxy S22 Note. The regulatory body also reiterates that the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus have smaller batteries than their predecessors. Seemingly, the former has a 3,700 mAh capacity, and the latter a 4,500 mAh one. Both capacities are approximately 300 mAh smaller than those in the Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S21 Plus.

Overall, these dummy photos highlight that the Galaxy S22 series looks less cohesive than this year's models. The Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S22 Plus may lookalike, but the Galaxy S22 Note barely resembles either of them. Samsung is expected to announce all three in February 2022.
