Galaxy Unpacked and launch dates for the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra delayed as Galaxy S22 Note name gets debunked
Last month, Jon Prosser claimed that the Galaxy S22 series would be pre-orderable from February 8, 2022. Supposedly, the devices were set to ship on February 18, with Samsung opening pre-orders the same day as its Galaxy Unpacked launch event. Incidentally, the Galaxy S21 FE should arrive roughly a month earlier.
Allegedly, Samsung has shifted its dates around from those listed above. Prosser now states that pre-orders will begin on February 9 and adds that the Galaxy S22 series will not be generally available until February 25. The leaker cites 'a pretty significant supply chain issue' as the reason for the delays.
Separately, LetsGoDigital has revealed a leaked marketing poster for the Galaxy S22 series. According to the website, the poster shows the Galaxy S22 Plus and the Galaxy S22 Ultra, not the Galaxy S22 Note. The image also implies that the smartphone has a ToF sensor, along with three rear-facing cameras.
Unfortunately, we cannot verify the image, but it resembles leaked Galaxy S22 renders and dummy units. If it is accurate, then perhaps Samsung has been toying with what to call its premier flagship smartphone, given its similarities with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Alternatively, leakers like @FrontTron may have received incorrect information.
