Six months away from launch, a new leak has now revealed the major specifications of Samsung's next flagship lineup, the Galaxy S22 series. Notable takeaways include smaller displays and batteries for the Galaxy S22 and S22+, as well as improved cameras for the two phones.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy S22 series next year. Considering the company's usual timeline, the release of the devices is about six months away, but a new leak has now purported to provide some details about the next-gen premium devices.

According to the source, the Galaxy S22 will sport a 6.06-inch display, while the S22+ and S22 Ultra will offer 6.55-inch and 6.81-inch screens respectively. That means the S22 and S22+ will be smaller than the S21 and S21+, while the S22 Ultra will mostly be the same size as the S21 Ultra. The S22 and S22+ will both have to make do with LTPS panels, with the S22 Ultra getting an LTPO display. 

Interestingly, the S22 and S22+ are tipped to offer smaller batteries than their predecessors, with battery units clocked in at 3800 mAh and 4600 mAh respectively. The S21 has a 4000 mAh battery, while the S21+ has a 4800 mAh unit. The S22 Ultra is touted to retain the S21 Ultra's 5000 mAh battery. 

The Galaxy S22 series is said to eschew under-display selfie cameras entirely. That may be due to poor performance of the technology in its first-gen form. At the rear, though, the Galaxy S22 and S22+ are touted to sport 50 MP main cameras, aided by 12 MP telephoto and ultra-wide-angle shooters. That implies a return to an actual optical zoom lens for the two phones. The S22 Ultra is listed with a 108 MP main camera, two 12 MP telephoto cameras, a 12 MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and a laser auto-focus sensor.

The phones will be powered by the Exynos 2200 and its AMD RDNA2 GPU in a few markets, while most markets will get Qualcomm's Snapdragon 898. Memory and storage configurations are expected to be identical to the Galaxy S21 series.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
